  1. McDonnell F3H-2 Demon Ultimate for SF2

    Version 1.0

    765 downloads

    This is the third of four projects I have been working on for the last 6 months. It will be followed by an F7U Cutlass Ultimate Package(when fully completed). I am also planning an F11F Tiger Ultimate package to follow . The F3H-2N and -2M were all built under contracts initially intended to cover for the disasterous F3H-1N. Following the completion of these contracts, a new Demon version was ordered in 1956-57 under a new set of contracts. This version was designated F3H-2 (F-3B after 1962). The F3H-2 could carry and launch the more capable AAM-N-6 (AIM-7C after September 1962) Sparrow III semi-active radar homing missile. The Sparrow III was a definite improvement over the Sparrow I, which was a pure beam riding missile, with no active homing capability, which meant that the guidance error was in the shape of a cone, which increased in diameter as the range inceased. The F3H-2 could also launch the AAM-N-7 (AIM-9B) Sidewinder IA air-to-air infrared homing air-to-air missile. The F3H-2 was equipped with an AN/APG-51B radar along with the AN/APA-127 Illuminator/Launch Envelope computer. The F3H-2 was optimized as a FIGHTER-BOMBER and could carry up to 6000 pounds of ordnance (bombs, rockets, or "special stores") on two fuselage and six wing stations. Late production F3H-2's also differed from the previous versions in having a slightly shorter beaver tail cone. The last of 239 F3H-2s was delivered on April 8, 1960, bringing the Demon production program to a close. Total Demon production was 519 aircraft. An interesting note is that there is NO EVIDENCE of the Demon ever being handed down to the USN Reserves. It seems almost all Demons were sent directly to NAS Litchfield Park and the scrapper. Only a handful remain today in museums......how sad. Being underpowered was its major flaw. The original Westinghouse J-40 never materialized and the J-71 was fitted instead. Pilots called the Demon the "Lead Sled" or just "Sled". This is a major rework of the existing F3H-2M demon file into the 3 variants. Almost everything has been tweeked to make it more accurate in appearance and performance. The skins have been painstakingly researched and re-created. Every squadron which flew this -2 model Demon is represented here including changes in their scheme over time. The flight model has been adjusted to fly like the Demon and give you performance worthy of its nickname. There are new Hangar and Loading Screens as well. Only Squadrons which operated this -2 variant of the Demon are included in the skins. SQUADRONS REPRESENTED: VF-13 Aggressors VF-14 Tophatters VF-21 Freelancers VF-31 Tomcatters (2 skin versions) VF-41 Black Aces (2 skin versions) VF-53 Puking Dogs VF-54 Silver Kings VF-64 Freelancers VF-92 Silver Kings VF-101 Grim Reapers VF-121 Pacemakers (2 skin versions) VF-131 Nightcappers VF-141 Iron Angels VF-151 Vigilantes (2 skin versions) VF-161 Chargers VF-193 Ghost Riders (3 skin versions) VF-213 Black Lions YES....THAT IS 23 SEPARATE SKINS!!!!!!!! All are researched and re-created here. Bureau Numbers are accurate for 3 blocks of the F3H-2 Production line (blocks h,p and t). A new weapons file for the AIM-7A Sparrow I missile is included. LET IT OVERWRITE any previous AIM-7A's you may have. This one is a new and CORRECT model. There are separate ini files to allow the user to operate Air to Ground Missions (with different ordanance pylons). PLEASE SEE READ-ME for details A read-me file is enclosed which contains installation instructions and credits.

  7. Version

    1,194 downloads

    This is an upgrade mod for the A-team Skunkworks A-37B Supertweet. You will need to obtain this file first (Located on their Modern Aircraft page) and do some very minor surgery since no 3D files come with this package. A step by step READ-ME is included for installation. The drop-tank and antenna package along with new pilots are included as well. This version of the Dragonfly is the standard "B" model WITH the nose refueling probe. The skin included is for the 604thSpecial Operations Squadron, Bien Hoa Airbase Vietnam 1969-70. The tailcode is the proper "CK". There will be several ADD-ON skins to follow, both USAF and Central/South American air forces.Requests for a custom skin will be considered. A historical read-me is included. Tested on post 08' patch WOV.

  10. McDonnell F3H-2N Demon Ultimate for SF2

    Version 1.02

    551 downloads

    This is the first of four projects I have been working on for the last 6 months. It will be followed shortly by Ultimate Packages for the F3H-2M and F3H-2 variants, along with a F7U Cutlass Ultimate Package. The F3H-2N was the first of three Demon variants developed in parallel with each other. It was meant to be an all-weather fighter for fleet use. Armament consisted of four 20mm cannon and 4 pods of 2.75inch FFAR's. Later the rockets were dropped in favor of the new Sidewinder missile which had just become available. Sparrow capability was added later in its life when most 2N's were upgraded to F3H-2 models. Being underpowered was its major flaw. The original Westinghouse J-40 never materialized and the J-71 was fitted instead. Pilots called the Demon the "Lead Sled" or just "Sled". This is a major rework of the existing F3H-2M demon file into the 3 variants. Almost everything has been tweeked to make it more accurate in appearance and performance. The skins have been painstakingly researched and re-created. Every squadron which flew the Demon is represented here including changes in their scheme over time. The flight model has been adjusted to fly like the Demon and give you performance worthy of its nickname. The four cannons are present along with the FFAR's and early Sidewinders. There are new Hangar and Loading Screens as well. SQUADRONS INCLUDED: VF-14 VF-31 VF-82 VF-114 VF-121 VF-122 VF-124 VFAW-3 VC-3 NOTS China Lake NATF Lakehurst A read-me file is enclosed which contains installation instructions and credits. ENJOY!!!
  11. McDonnell F3H-2M Demon Ultimate for SF2

    Version 1.01

    554 downloads

    This is the second of four projects I have been working on for the last 6 months. It will be followed shortly by Ultimate Packages for the F3H-2 variant, along with a F7U Cutlass Ultimate Package. The F3H-2M (M for "Missile") was a version of the F3H Demon that was equipped to carry and launch the early AAM-N-2 Sparrow I radar beam-riding air-to-air missile. Two of the four 20mm cannons were often removed to same weight. Sometimes all were removed and it operated pure-missile!! The F3H-2M was produced in parallel with the F3H-2N, but only 80 examples of the F3H-2M were built. It was modified to carry the AN/APG-51B radar set that was used to guide the Sparrow I missile. Four of these Sparrow missiles could be carried underneath the wings. This model of the Demon was NOT operationally upgraded to operate the new and improved Sparrow III missile. After 1962...the designation was changed to MF-3B Demon. Being underpowered was its major flaw. The original Westinghouse J-40 never materialized and the J-71 was fitted instead. Pilots called the Demon the "Lead Sled" or just "Sled". This is a major rework of the existing F3H-2M demon file into the 3 variants. Almost everything has been tweeked to make it more accurate in appearance and performance. The skins have been painstakingly researched and re-created. Every squadron which flew this M model Demon is represented here including changes in their scheme over time. The flight model has been adjusted to fly like the Demon and give you performance worthy of its nickname. There are new Hangar and Loading Screens as well. All Bureau Numbers are accurate for this variant. A new weapon model has been created for the early Sparrow I. It is TRUE in appearance and performance (at least as much was possible). ONLY A FEW DEMON SQUADRONS OPERATED THE F3H-2M...they are represented in this package. SQUADRONS REPRESENTED: VF-24 "Corsairs" (2 skins) VF-61 "Jolly Rogers" (4 skins!) VF-112 (2 skins) VF-121 "Pacemakers" the West Coast RAG (Replacement Air Group) VX-4 "Evaluators" Point Mugu (Pacific Missile Test Center) NATC (Naval Air Test Center) A read-me file is enclosed which contains installation instructions and credits.

    This mod will add music and other surprises to your SF2V install. The goal is to ENHANCE your 1960's Air War Vietnam experience and provide a little historical background. A read me file for installation is provided. Enjoy and listen carefully for surprises....Hanoi Hannah may have something to say ....:) Tested on stand alone SF2V with the Gold Expansion Pack installed.
  13. Starting Rolling Thunder campaign on 3-2-65 mission (first day). My pilot roster is already made up of veterans. Some with 20 missions and 4 AA kills already. How does one fix things so that all pilots start out zero-zero on missions and Mig kills? Can this be done? Champ.
