  1. CH-178 (Mi-8/Mi-17)

    For those who would like to see what it looks like :)
  2. CH-178 (Mi-8/Mi-17) View File To be used on SF2 Mi-8T by Lazarus1177 available here : https://combatace.com/files/file/13193-pakistan-army-mi-8-pack/ These skins represent the schemes used by the RCAF on their Mi-17V-5 (Mi-8M) and bearing CF designation CH-178 in Afghanistant in 2010-2011. The serial numbers in this skin pack along with planes numbers are real one's. Some details will be different then real life RCAF Mi-17 as they are model related (no Mi-17 in the model list available). HISTORICAL BACKGROUND : Canada, as various NATO countries, leased civilian Mi-8/Mi-17 in the past for transport in Afghanistan. However in 2010, four Mi-17V5 known as CH-178 were operated by Canadian personnel and carrying Canadian markings. When the mission was over they were put in storage. Installation: Copy the RCAF FOLDER of the current pack objects/aircraft folder in your game Mi-8T aircraft folder. Copy the FOLDER of the current pack objects/decals folder in your game decals folder. Open the Textureset.ini and edit the file by adding the texture.ini lines to the Mi-8T.ini. Open the Userlist.ini and edit the lines for Canada service years. All decals are made by me. I completely redraw the panel lines and rivets. Serials are real one's. Credits: Thirdwire for creating the Strike Fighters series. Marcfighters for the Aircraft Model, cockpit and original textures. Lazarus1177 for the Pakistan Army Mi-8 Pack 1.0 Thanks to me for the redraw of the lines and paint work :). Happy flights! Mario C.

  6. View File CP-122 Neptune Royal Canadian Air Force Neptune Mod for SFP2 v1.0 (CP-122) *** This is a mod of the original P-2H (P2V-7) released by Tracker and the Argentine Modders Group *** This Mod represent the CP-122 Neptune of the RCAF : You fill find the complete aircraft in this package. 404,405 and 407 Squadrons Early (AB + 3) Early (RCAF + 3) Late (RCAF + 3) All decals are made by me. I redraw the panel lines and rivets. Serials are real one's but not squadron specific. Background : The Canadian version of the Lockheed Neptune (P2V7) served as an anti-submarine, anti-shipping and maritime reconnaissance aircraft in the RCAF Maritime Air Command from 1955, replacing the Avro Lancaster maritime aircraft. The Canadian P2V7 was fitted with piston engines initially, although, in 1959, the Neptunes had two underwing Westinghouse J34 jet engine pods retrofitted, similar to those fitted to US Navy variants. Armament included two torpedoes, mines, depth charges, bombs carried internally plus unguided rockets mounted externally underwing. A total of 25 Neptunes served with nos. 404, 405 and 407 squadrons until 1960. Upon unification of the Canadian Forces in 1968, the Neptune was retired and retroactively re-designated the CP122, The RCAF Neptune was replaced by the Canadair CP-107 Argus in the same year. 1977Frenchie Submitter 1977Frenchie Submitted 10/01/2017 Category Other

  8. CF-151 (Rafale) * What-If

    Here is a glimpse of my skin job so far for the early CP-122 :) Three skins will be done along with proper serials and squadrons markings/decals.
  9. CF-151 (Rafale) * What-If

    Thks man. It was long ago i made skins and started back lately as a hobby. Nice to know this is much appreciated! :) As a Canadian i love to do RCAF birds. I am currently working on the CP-122 (Canadian P2V Neptune). Decals are made, line, rivets. Just have to do the paint work and decal placement... still a few hours of work :) I am not able to modify the LOd files as i never did any work on models itself (might learn in the future). But i could have an eye on the CP-121 Tracker and the CC-138 Twin Otter. I might have a look at some other missing birds in the future to continue the RCAF plane choice :) I also know that Wrench have the Clunk on the board and it will be a great Cold War add-on when release!

Background : As the original Lockheed Martin F-35 Lighting II Canadian Procurement have been froze by the Liberal government after their 2011 election. It's been long speculated which fighter would replace the aging CF-188's of the RCAF. In 2017, the Liberal government announced the 18 Boeing Super Hornet would be bought as interim aircraft to fill the holes of the current Fleet of CF-188's so operational status can be maintained at 100%. As the tender for the replacement still went on, many manufacturers when on the line to win the replacement aircraft contract. In the year 2017, Boeing sued Bombardier (Canadian Aerospace Company) over a dispute on aircraft sales (CS-100's below cost) to Delta Airline. Many actors in Canada, USA and even Britain went to defend the Canadian Company that their was nothing wrong by doing so as Boeing did it in the pas itself (like Air Canada Boeing 787). The response by the Canadian Government was to initially re-think the 18 Super Hornet's order. On septembre 25th, the US court stated the Bombardier was at fault and a double 80% sale tax was then charged on every CS-100 sale to the US market. The Canadian response was immediate with cancellation of the Super Hornet buying. On september 26th, the Liberal's announced that a new fighter have been chosen for the RCAF. The secret have been well kept in the RCAF and government ranks. The announced was the cancellation of the F-35 Lightning II procurement and the buying of 72 Rafale C (same as EH model of the India Air Force) with armament, support and maintenance for a life span of 30 years. The Rafale C under the RCAF would be called CF-151 Rafale-C and would equipped the 6 Tactical Fighter Squadrons (401, 409, 410, 416, 425 and 433). The 12 first planes (serials 151101 to 151112) were delivered as early of 2018 to the 410 Cougars for training and transition of the CF-18 pilots. Then the other squadrons received their 12 planes each in late 2018- early 2019 time line. Here is the 12 serials per squadrons : 410 Cougars 151101 - 151112 425 Alouette 151113 - 151124 433 Porc-Épic 151125 - 151136 409 NightHawk 151137 - 151148 416 Lynx 151149 - 151160 401 Ram 151161 - 151172 1977Frenchie Submitter 1977Frenchie Submitted 09/25/2017 Category Rafale

  12. My computer died.

    If you want a lucky story, i can tell you one! My wife have the good habit to drink water while working on her laptop and guess what happened... She hit the glass and water spilled on the keyboard. She react quickly but hey it's water! All of a sudden everything stopped working (motherboard shortage). While i was at work she called me to tell me this and told her to dry the surface as much as she could, unplug the power cord and leave the machine alone. When i got home, i could see water still in the button cracks. I opened the laptop, removed the battery get the air dryer and it was hope time... unfortunately nothing worked... I removed the HDD and installed it on my rig as an external drive and nothing was lost (phewwwww) :) So i let the thing opened for a week by the window so sun and heat would dry it out bo this did not worked either... I reinstalled the HDD and closed the laptop as it was a repair thing now. Plugged the power cord to check if the power button would light up and.... no... so it was dead. I left the laptop there for 2 weeks as we were going out of town and when we came back home... power light was on on the Laptop! Fired up the thing and it came back alive without damage!?! It's been 3 months now and works like a charm and a great lesson learned by the love one :)
  13. My computer died.

    bout 95% sure it's the Motherboard that failed. if it's the case the HDD will be safe. Just remove it and plug in another PC and see if everything is there. It happened to me on a 2 years old Laptop.
  14. View File CF-18 2016 Skin (425 Alouettes) This is intented to be use on the CF-18_07 made by dtmdragon : I just redone the lines, rivets and added some minors lettering along with changing the fuselage roundel for the current one..
