  1. Blackburn Buccaneer S.22 - RAN

    This is the Blackburn Buccaneer for the Royal Australian Navy. This package consists of complete aircraft. 
    Historical Background 
    The military buildup in China and Indonesia in the early 1960s led the RAN to renew the airwing of its 2 Audacious class aircraft carriers, HMAS Sydney and HMAS Melbourne. At the beginning of the decade, these British aircraft carriers fielded an airwing of F3D Skyknight all weather fighters, FJ-3 Fury day fighters, and Westland Wyvern attack aircraft. All were considered incapable of coping with the fighters and air defences projected to be introduced by Indonesia and China in the ensuing years. 
    To respond to this situation, the RAN formulated requirements for an all-weather supersonic fighter, and a carrier-capable strike aircraft which could deploy a "special munition" after penetrating enemy defences. For this latter requirement, only two aircraft were viable, the Grumman A2F, and the Blackburn NA39. The Navy had concerns about the A2F's complex DIANE system, but overall favoured the US offering. The government, on the other hand, saw the Buccaneer requiring less of Australia's dollar reserves, and an order for a British aircraft could provide the British government a greater incentive to engage in nuclear cooperation with Australia. Since the naval fighter requirement was likely to be fulfilled by the McDonnell F-4 Phantom, using a British strike aircraft would keep the two big allies in balance. Therefore, the Government ordered 38 Buccaneer S.22s. The S.22 was basically the same as a British Buccaneer S.2. 
    The RAN's first Buccaneers were hoisted into HMAS Melbourne for delivery as deck cargo in 1965. Deliveries were completed in 1966. By the end of 1967, HMAS Melbourne was ready to sail with 854 Squadron fully equipped with Buccaneers. The RAN's Buccaneers did not participate in the Vietnam War, though some of their pilots and observers did fly 2 Squadron's Buccaneers on exchange to the RAAF. In 1970, the government authorised a "mid-life update" for the Buccaneer. This update was carried out by the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation, and included upgrades to the Buccaneer's weapons, and defensive systems. In particular, it gained the ability to use guided weapons, and the new Pave Spike pod. Deliveries of upgraded Buccaneers, designated Buccaneer S.22D began in 1972. The Liberal/Country Coalition government intended to use them in Vietnam, as a "political replacement" for the Task Force in Phuoc Tuy province, which was withdrawing. The Labor Government elected at the end of 1972 cancelled this deployment. 
    The Buccaneers spent the rest of the 1970s and 1980s on deployments, mainly in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. In 1990, the Government decided to retire the carriers, and replace them with two Invincible class carriers. HMAS Melbourne was already in inactive reserve. Some of 854 Squadron's Buccaneers were turned over to the RAAF as attrition replacements and parts hulks. It was the beginning of the end of the Buccaneer - at least it was until the invasion of Kuwait. HMAS Sydney, with 857 Squadron's Buccaneers, was dispatched to the Gulf. Some of 854 Squadron's Buccaneers, formerly attached to HMAS Melbourne, were sent to Bahrain to support the Buccaneers of 2 Squadron, RAAF. The HMAS Sydney's Buccaneers operated beside the US Navy's A-6 Intruders against targets in Iraq and Kuwait. 
    After a successful tour of duty in the Gulf, the RAN's Buccaneers returned home. HMAS Melbourne was fully decommissioned in 1992, and HMAS Sydney in 1993. The RAN continued to fly a small number of Buccaneers out of HMAS Albatross in Nowra, New South Wales for fleet support. The RAN's final operational Buccaneer flight took place in 1995. After that, 2 Buccaneers were retained in airworthy for the RAN Historical Flight, a number were turned over the RAAF, and the remainder were offered for private sale, or to Museums - including one at the Fleet Air Arm Museum in Nowra. 
    Package
    2 full aircraft, plus bomb racks. The S.22D uses the S.2B 1989 3D model for its Pave Spike station. The S.22D is edited to allow the use of US weapons.

  2. Blackburn Buccaneer S.22 - RAAF

    This is the Blackburn Buccaneer for the Royal Australian Air Force. This package consists of complete aircraft.
    Historical Background
    When considering its Canberra replacement, the Australian Government looked at a variety of options, including the Mirage IV, the A-5 Vigilante, and the TFX (F-111). Britain's Chief of Defence Staff, Admiral of the Fleet Lord Louis Mountbatten pushed the Blackburn Buccaneer. The Buccaneer did not come close to meeting RAAF requirements, but what if it was adopted? 
    Given the lower price of the Buccaneer, we would have had a more than 24 - perhaps twice that. Enough for 3 squadrons easily. Deliveries of RAAF Buccaneers began in 1965 to 82 Wing at RAAF Amberley, Queensland. The RAAF Buccaneers were given the mark number Strike Mark 22. They were generally similar to the Royal Navy's Buccaneer S.2. An ILS was fitted, and some of the carrier-deck equipment was deleted, but the hydraulic folding wings were retained. In addition to the British twin bomb rack, the BRU-42 Triple Ejector Rack was procured, and US bombs such as the Mark 82 and M117 were tested. 
    3 RAAF squadrons were equipped with Buccaneers. 1 Squadron was the primary strike squadron, 2 Squadron also performed the strike role, and was intended for forward defence if necessary, and 6 Squadron was tasked with conversion training and reconnaissance. 6 Squadron also backed up 1 Squadron. 
    2 Squadron was the first RAAF Buccaneer unit to see combat. It was deployed in 1967 to Phan Rang Air Base in South Vietnam to support the B-57 Canberras of the USAF's 35th Tactical Fighter Wing. Between 1967 and 1972, 2 Squadrons Buccaneers performed thousands of missions in South Vietnam. With the addition of electronic countermeasures pods, RAAF Buccaneers were authorised to operate over North Vietnam. 2 Squadron Buccaneers also provided direct support to the Australian Task Force in Phuoc Tuy Province. 2 Squadron lost 1 Buccaneer in an accident, and sustained no losses due to enemy action, though a number of aircraft were damaged by ground fire. 
    Upon their return to Australia, the Buccaneers moved towards a precision strike role with laser guided bombs, and maritime strike with the AGM-84 Harpoon. A number of ex-Royal Navy extra aircraft were purchased to replace attrition. Progressive upgrades kept the force operating efficiently. 
    In 1990, Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein ordered the invasion of Kuwait. 2 Squadron's Buccaneers formed part of the RAAF's contribution to Operation Damask. RAAF Buccaneers attacked Iraqi ground forces, airfields, and communication and transport infrastructure. Unlike RAF Buccaneers, the RAAF Buccaneers dropped bombs from their first day. The RAAF's Buccaneers used laser guided bombs, and introduced the AGM-84E SLAM into RAAF service. The Buccaneers also took part in the Battle of Bubiyan using Harpoon missiles against the Iraqi Navy. 3 RAAF Buccaneers were lost to ground fire, with 2 aircrew killed. 
    2 Squadron's return to Australia heralded the twilight of the Buccaneer's Australian service. In 1992, the Australian Government dropped plans to upgrade the Buccaneers and began to look for a replacement. The Buccaneer would continue in the strike role until 1996, and a small number would be used for reconnaissance until 1998. 
    The options to replace the Buccaneer were the Panavia Tornado, and the F-15E Strike Eagle - but those are skins for another time, or another modder.
    Package
    4 full aircraft, plus bomb racks, and bonus materials. The aircraft have been edited to use US weapons, and to allow the BRU-42 Triple Ejector Rack. Internal carriage of laser guided bombs is provided. 2 500 or 1000 lb Paveway bombs can be carried. The bomb bays will also carry 4 M117, or Mark 82.

  4. Mirage IIIO SEA Camouflage

    Overview
    TW's Mirage IIIO DLC with a SEA camouflage scheme based on the scheme used by the Mirage 5BAs of the Belgian Air Force. I did it because I never found the European camouflage on the Mirages to be all that sensible for Australia, the SEA scheme looks like a better fit. 
    The skins are entirely generic, just the camouflage scheme, so it can fit any nation. No markings are provided, only decals are used. You must have the Mirage IIIO DLC for the RAAF decals. All the decal inis are taken straight from the Mirage IIIO DLC. 
    The skins should work for any Mirage IIIE derivative. There were some changes to panel lines and lights for the Mirage IIIO, so the texture for the nose does not precisely fit the Mirage IIIC. That said, I can make a nose texture for the M3C if asked. Simple enough. The template used was Ludo's Mirage IIIC DLC template. 
    Provided
    SEA Skins for Mirage IIIO(A), IIIO(F), and IIIO(F/A) Installation

    RAAF F-111 reskinning
     
    Born in Texas, lived in Queensland - the Pig.
     
    Here are new skins for the RAAF F-111s. The SEA camouflage skins have been repainted, mostly in accordance with LeL's SF1 F-111C. In addition to the usual fin squadron markings, the crests are also displayed. The grey skins have also been redone. All of this was done on the new templates provided by slick_cowboy, who more than lives up to his username. In addition to F-111C skins, F-111A, and F-111G skins are provided. In addition, the hypothetical RF-111A from "F-111 Super Vark Pack" has been repurposed as an RF-111C.
     
    All serials have been added. The following versions are represented:
    F-111C (Early) SEA camouflage: 28 serials including the 4 F-111A attrition replacements converted to F-111C. Squadron markings for 1SQN, 6 SQN, and blank squadron markings (which may be accessed by selecting "No. 82 Wing" in the loadout) ARDU SEA camouflage/white - A8-132 only

  7. The Other CF-105 (CF-105 Thunderchief)

    This is a what-if mod of the stock F-105D Thunderchief, with Sundowner's new high-resolution skins for the Royal Canadian Air Force/Canadian Armed Forces Air Command.
     
    Backstory
     
    During the late 1950s, Canada agreed to take on a nuclear strike role in NATO. The aircraft that took on this role would replace the Canadair Sabre. The RCAF considered several designs including the Grumman F11F Tiger, the Lockheed F-104G Starfighter, the Northrop N-156F, and the Republic F-105 Thunderchief.
     
    The F-105 variant offered to the RCAF was an F-105D equipped with an Orenda Iroquois engine. Two prototypes were constructed in 1959, using engines that had been constructed for the cancelled Avro Arrow. The marriage of Iroquois to F-105 was not a happy one. The Iroquois was an excellent engine when used operated at high altitude and high speed, the operating environment of an interceptor. When operated at transonic and supersonic speeds at low level, the engine proved unreliable. A catastrophic turbine failure at 400 ft and Mach 0.95 resulted in a fatal crash. This, combined with the escalating cost of developing the Iroquois forced the Government to cancel the Iroquois and opt for a standard F-105D. Canadian content was kept by having Pratt and Whitney Canada built the J75 engines under licence.
     
    With the Cold War heating up fast, the RCAF received its Thunderchiefs quickly. Five RCAF squadrons were equipped including 421, 422, 427, 439. and 441 Squadrons. For nuclear strike, their standard loadout was a Mark 28 nuclear bomb, two or four Sidewinders, and two drop tanks. The Thuds could also carry out conventional strike missions using a variety of bombs, missiles, and rockets.
     
    In 1965, the RCAF deployed 427 Squadron to RAAF Ubon in Thailand to operate beside the F-105s of 2 Squadron RAAF. Between 1965 and 1972, the Canadian and Australian Thunderchiefs bombed thousands of targets across North Vietnam.
     
    Upon their withdrawal from Vietnam, the CF-105 Thunderchiefs returned to Europe. The Trudeau Government removed their nuclear strike mission, leaving them as conventional strike aircraft only. For this reason, all the CF-105s were painted dark green, and given the new "symmetrical" marking scheme. The aircraft were refurbished after Vietnam to give them another ten years of life, and recently retired Thuds from USAF stocks replenished Canadian losses.
     
    The Thuds remained in Canadian Service until 1984, when they were replaced by the CF-18. The CF-105G Wild Weasel continued until 1987.
     
    Skins
    RCAF Natural Metal - Initial skin, natural metal with RCAF Markings. RCAF SEA Camo - Introduced in 1966 for Canadian Thuds deployed to Vietnam. Standard RCAF markings. CAF Natural Metal - Used in Europe & Canada after 1968. CAF marking scheme. CAF SEA - Used in Vietnam after 1968, and introduced in Europe during depot maintenance. CAF marking scheme. CAF Green - Dark Green scheme used in Europe after 1973. Symmetrical marking scheme. Remained until retirement.

    The F-105D has only the RCAF skins. All skins are offered for the F-105D_66
     
    Installation
     
    Copy the contents of ModFolder into your mod folder. Merge/overwrite when prompted.
     
    Notes
     
    This mod contains a Squadronlist.ini file. If you do not wish to alter your own, then you should add the following into your squadronlist.ini:
     
    [squadron569]
    Name=421CAF
    DisplayName=No. 421 Squadron
    Nation=Canada
     
    [squadron570]
    Name=422CAF
    DisplayName=No. 422 Squadron
    Nation=Canada
     
    [squadron571]
    Name=427CAF
    DisplayName=No. 427 Squadron
    Nation=Canada
     
    [squadron574]
    Name=439CAF
    DisplayName=No. 439 Squadron
    Nation=Canada
     
    [squadron575]
    Name=441CAF
    DisplayName=No. 441 Squadron
    Nation=Canada
     
    Should these numbers not correspond with those in your squadronlist.ini, then change the numbers on the file, and the filenames of the SQN decals accordingly.
     
    In order to get the correct roundel and Canadian flag, you can change the active date for Canada in your nations.ini from 1968 to 1965. This means that in the menus, you will see "Canadian Armed Forces" three years early, but in the sim, you will get the present Canadian flag and the stylised maple leaf roundel used today.
     
    To access nuclear weapons for Canada, I recommend making nation specific version of the various US nuclear weapons (e.g. Mk43_Canada), rather than making them exportable.
     
    To make your own F-105 skins, use Sundowner's templates: http://combatace.com/files/file/14427-hi-res-tw-f-105d-templates/
     
    No apologies for being cheeky with the designation CF-105.

    History
     
    During the 1960s, the Royal Canadian Air Force commenced a search for a more affordable fighter to supplement the CF-101 Voodoo, and the CF-104 Starfighter. The RCAF advised the government to acquire the F-4 Phantom II. The British Government proposed a cooperative project with Canada, involving Canada choosing the F-4M instead of the F-4E (preferred by the RCAF). The British plan offered Canada a higher offset than the F-4E would have. It would also help to maintain Commonwealth economic ties, keeping Britain away from Europe, and mainaining Canadian access to British markets.
     
    While McDonnell acted as the primary contractor, assembly of all F-4Ms was contracted to Canadair. Production of the engines for Canada's Phantoms was allocated to Orenda (TF41-OEL-2).
     
    The CF-110M entered service in 1969 with 409 Squadron. Subsequntly aircraft were allocated to NATO units. Initially, they served in the nuclear strike and reconnaissance role in Europe, and in the air defence role in North America. In 1972, their nuclear role was withdrawn and the role of conventional attack was substituted. For this role, the NATO CF-110s were equipped with conventional bombs, cluster bombs, including the British BL755, and the Canadian CRV-7 unguided rocket. SUU-23 gun pods were procured for the Europe-based Phantoms. Later, gun pods were purchased for NORAD Phantoms. Other new weapons for the Canadian Phantoms included the British Skyflash medium range air-to-air missile, and upgraded version of the AIM-9 Sidewinder. Pave Spike was added in 1980 to give the Phantoms the ability to guide their own laser-guided bombs.
     
    The CF-110M served with the Canadian Armed Forces until 1991, when it was replaced with the CF-18.

  9. RAAF F-105D Thunderchief

    This is a what-if mod of the stock F-105D Thunderchief, with Sundowner's new high-resolution skins, for the Royal Australian Air Force.
     
    Backstory
     
    During the late 1950s, Australia faced a worsening strategic situation to its north. Having helped Indonesia gain its independence in 1949, Australia now faced an increasingly hostile government, led by the nationalist dictator Sukarno. As time went on, Sukarno tempered his nationalism with communism, and considered himself South-East Asia's foremost anti-colonialist. Indonesia's communist party, the PKI, was the third largest communist party in the world, exceeded by only the Communist Party of China and the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.
     
    Sukarno's closer relationship with the USSR had tangible rewards for Indonesia's armed forces, the TNI. Soviet weapons poured into Indonesia. Australian defence leaders doubted that their Avon-Sabres could intercept Indonesia's Il-28 Beagle bombers, and were absolutely certain that they couldn't touch Tu-16 Badgers. Likewise, the ability of the GAF Canberra to survive against an air defence equipped with supersonic MiG fighters was questionable at best.
     
    To be assured of their ability to attack a target in Indonesia (possibly with a "special weapon"), Australia needed a new strike aircraft. The Menzies Government ordered the F-111C off the drawing board. In the meantime, an interim aircraft was sought. The B-47 Stratojet was offered, but rejected. The B-47 was seen as too unwieldly for the RAAF. The USAF's current tactical strike aircraft, the F-105 Thunderchief, seemed to fit the bill.
     
    Australia's Thunderchiefs were delivered quickly. Shortly after the F-111 order was placed, Thuds began to arrive in Australia. Three RAAF Squadrons were equipped with the F-105, 1 Squadron, 2 Squadron, 6 Squadron, and 12 Squadron. 2 Squadron was deployed to RAAF Butterworth for forward defence, while 1 and 6 Squadrons were based at RAAF Amberley. As with most RAAF aircraft, it served with the Aircraft Research and Development Unit.
     
    1965 was a key year in the history of the Australian Thunderchiefs. The Abortive Coup in Indonesia in September removed Australia's primary threat, and Australia committed combat forces to support the government of South Vietnam.
     
    2 Squadron were moved from RAAF Butterworth to RAAF Ubon in eastern Thailand. 2 Squadron's F-105 Thunderchiefs operated alongside their US equivalents in attacking North Vietnam.
     
    The RAAF's Thuds remained in Thailand until the withdrawal of Australian forces in Vietnam in 1972. During that time, they operated on both sides of the DMZ, and were the preferred support for the Australian Task Force in Phuoc Tuy province. The Task Force especially appreciated the accuracy of the Australian F-105 pilots. Several RNZAF pilots flew Australian Thunderchiefs on exchange postings.
     
    As the USAF replaced their Thunderchiefs with Phantoms, the American Thuds were given to the RAAF to replace their losses.
     
    When 2 Squadron returned to Australia, it was immediately disbanded, and its crews were sent to 1 and 6 Squadrons to train for the F-111C, which was finally to arrive.
     
    The RAAF's Wild Weasels continued in service until 1983.
     
    Skins
    Natural metal - This is the scheme in which the aircraft were delivered. In RAAF service, it was used until 1966, when circumstances forced the RAAF to camouflage their aircraft. This skin is provided only for the F-105D, however should you wish to use it with the F-105D_66, then simply copy the RAAFSilver folder into the F-105D_66 folder, and rename the aircraft textures from F-105D_x.bmp to F-105D_66_x.bmp. SEA - This scheme was introduced for the RAAF's Thuds in 1966 for usage in Vietnam. All RAAF F-105D Thunderchiefs eventually wore this scheme. It persisted until the retirement of the Thud. Anti-Flash White - Between 1962 and 1965, ARDU (the RAAF's test flying unit) operated three F-105Ds in a special anti-flash white scheme. The aircraft were used for testing a variety of conentional and nuclear weapons. While ARDU's home base was RAAF Laverton, the White Thuds operated almost exclusively from the secretive Woomera Test Facility.

  10. F-104G - Royal Australian Air Force

    This mod contains a series of RAAF skins for the F-104G Starfighter.
     
    Backstory
     
    During the late 1950s, the RAAF considered the question of replacing the CAC Avon-Sabre. From the submissions of most of the West's major manufacturers, a shortlist of two aircraft was put forward. These aircraft were the Dassault Mirage III, and the Lockheed F-104G Starfighter. In the event, the Government selected the Mirage III, which was manufactured in Australia as the Mirage IIIO. Of course, the Government could have gone the other way ...
     
    Had they done so, there was a chance that the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation would have been chosen to build it (they had been working on this with Lockheed). In real life, the Mirage IIIO was not used in Vietnam due to French restrictions (hence the reason Australia did not replace the Mirage IIIO with the Mirage 2000, and will not replace the F/A-18 with the Rafale), however the F-104G could have been used in Vietnam.
     
    The natural metal, and green/grey schemes reflect the actual colour schemes of the Mirage IIIO. SEA is included because it is highly appropriate for Australian conditions, and would reflect use of RAAF Starfighters in Vietnam. The "Fanta Can" is included because I'd be stoned to death for not including it. Further schemes may be included in updates.
     
    Contents

    Natural Metal, European green/grey, SEA camouflage skins for the following units:
    3SQN 75SQN 76SQN 77SQN 79SQN ARDU

    "Fanta Can" scheme for ARDU.
     
    In the extras folder, there are alternate wings for different roundel configurations:
    Upper and lower, both wings (reflecting most F-104 users) Lower, both wings (reflecting the Mirage IIIO and A-4G) Upper left, lower right (reflecting the F-4E and F-111C)

     
    Installation
     
    Copy the contents of ModFolder into your mod folder. Overwrite where necessary. If you have downloaded the previous RAAF F-104G, I suggest deleting it before adding this mod. Materials and instructions for making the F-104G flyable are widely available on this site. You must have the Mirage IIIO DLC to use this mod.

    History
     
    The idea for this aircraft comes from my Nazi Cold War timeline on my alternate history wikia.
     
    The RAN proposed the acquisition of Essex class carriers to the Government in 1964 to replace the Majestic class HMAS Melbourne. The aircraft the RAN proposed was the F-4B Phantom.
     
    Operating an F-4B from the relatively small deck of an Essex class carrier is problematic, to say the least. On the other hand, the F-4K Phantom modifications would enable the operation of a Phantom from such a small deck.
     
    The F-4K entered service in 1969. Three squadrons operated the Phantom; 805 Squadron, which operated from HMAS Melbourne; 808 Squadron, which operated from HMAS Sydney; and 724 Squadron, which conducted the RAN's Phantom training from HMAS Albatross in Nowra, NSW. Both 805 and 808 Squadrons were homeported at HMAS Albatross. They initially served beside the RAN's A-4E Skyhawks. From 1972, the Phantom's counterpart was the A-7E Corsair II.
     
    They served in the Vietnam War protecting supply convoys to North Vietnam to aid its fight against the Fascist regime in the South. They subsequently served in the Gulf War of 1995. After the war, the F-4K was replaced by the McDonnell Douglas FV-16C Wraith STOVL fighter.
     
    The F-4K remained in service until 1995.
     
    For further on this (including the RAN proposal itself) see the following:

    Notes
     
    These skins can be integrated with the British-style F-4K Phantom FG.22 mod which is also available. Note that this aircraft has a different name. The British-style version's name is "F-4K Phantom FG.22 (RAN)", while this mod is named "F-4K Phantom (RAN)"

    History
     
    The RAN ordered the Phantom to replace the de Havilland Sea Vixen FAW.22 which had served on Australia's Audacious class carrier HMAS Melbourne R21 (ex-HMS Africa). They were delivered in 1969, and served with two squadrons, 805 Squadron, which was the operational squadron embarked on HMAS Melbourne, and 724 Squadron, which served as a training unit. Both were homeported at HMAS Albatross in Nowra, NSW. Where necessary, additional training was provided in RAAF Phantom FGR.22s with 2 OCU at RAAF Williamtown.
     
    The RAN's Phantom FG.21s served with Commonwealth forces in the Far East and the Indian Ocean for many years, including sporadic skirmishes with Indonesian aircraft and ships. In 1982, HMAS Melbourne was assigned to aid the British effort to liberate the Falklands from Argentine occupation.
     
    After the Falklands War, the Phantom FG.21 continued to serve. HMAS Melbourne was paid off in 1987. The surviving Phantom FG.21s were turned over to the RAAF to provide spares for the RAAF's Phantom FGR.22 force. The final flight of a Phantom FG.21 in RAN markings was at the Australian Bicentennial Airshow in 1988.

    History
     
    The idea for this aircraft comes from my alternate history site. It was first operated by this alternate Royal Canadian Navy in 1968.
     
    The RAAF's primary strike aircraft for the sixties was the F-105 Thunderchief. During the Vietnam War, the RAAF used its Thunderchiefs to strike targets of strategic importance to the Saigon Fascist regime. However, German air defences in South Vietnam had taken their toll on the Thuds. With the F-111C suffering serious delays, the RAAF took what was available, the F-4 Phantom. This aircraft had just been introduced by the Royal Australian Navy. In Vietnam, the Phantom enjoyed a high level of success, and showed its multi-role capacity.
     
    With the delivery of the F-111s, and their work up to full operational capability, the RAAF needed to find a mission for its Phantoms, or a buyer. The RAAF recommended early replacement of most of its F-104 Starfighters. The Government accepted this option, and the F-4M served as Australia's front line tactical fighter until the mid 1990s.
     
    The wikia article for the aircraft itself is found here:

    History
     
    The RAAF purchased the F-4M in order to support a large Commonwealth commitment to Malaysia and Singapore against the aggression of the PKI regime in Indonesia. The F-4M was initially intended to fit the gap between the RAAF's Mirage IIIO and BAC Eagle (TSR.2). In the event, the F-4M replaced the Mirage completely. The F-4Ms remained in service until the mid-1990s, when they were replaced by F/A-18 Hornets.

  15. Canadair CF-104 Starfighter skins

    Introduction
     
    I have made new skins for the Canadair CF-104 Starfighter. These skins show all the normal Royal Canadian Air Force/Canadian Armed Forces CF-104 schemes. Fuel tanks are included. Aircraft.ini files removing TK's CF-104 skins are also included.
     
    Skins
     
    The following skins are provided:
    CF-104 RCAF Natural Metal (Canada-based) RCAF Natural Metal (Germany-based) RCAF Natural Metal post-1965 (Canada-based) RCAF Natural Metal post-1965 (Germany-based) CAF Natural Metal (Canada-based) CAF Natural Metal (Germany-based)
    [*]CF-104_72
    CAF Natural Metal (Canada-based) CAF Natural Metal (Germany-based) CAF Green CAF Symmetrical Natural Metal (Canada-based) CAF Symmetrical Natural Metal (Germany-based) CAF Symmetrical Green
    [*]CF-104_76
    CAF Symmetrical Natural Metal (Canada-based) CAF Symmetrical Natural Metal (Germany-based) CAF Symmetrical Green CAF Symmetrical Camo



    I have provided 20 serial numbers. Anyone wishing to make additional serials will find PSD templates, and the RCAF font in the extra's folder. Use 22-point for pre-unification serials, 16-point for unification serials, and 48-point for buzz numbers.
     
    I have also included fuel tank templates which I have created.
     
    No instructions or files have been added to make the CF-104 flyable, however plenty is available on combatace.com on this subject. What works for the F-104G will work for the CF-104. I recommend making the aircraft ini files read only.
     
    Template used: http://combatace.com/files/file/5474-f-104g-photoshop-template/
     
    Changes
     
    Removed CAF Green from CF-104, removed scratches from all skins, adjusted specular, glossiness and reflection values on natural metal skins, added SM files to natural metal skins. Fixed decals to remove white borders.
     
    Installation Instructions
     
    Copy the contents of "ModFolder" into your mod folder. Over-write where necessary.

  16. CF-4E Phantom II - Canadian Forces - Part 3

    Introduction
     
    Here is McDonnell Douglas CF-110E Phantom II for the Canadian Forces Air Command. It is based on ravenclaw_007's new F-4E. This package contains the CF-4E, skins in Canadian Voodoo Grey and SEA camouflage.
     
    History
     
    During the 1960s, the Royal Canadian Air Force commenced a search for a more affordable fighter to supplement the CF-101 Voodoo, and the CF-104 Starfighter. The RCAF advised the government to acquire the F-4 Phantom II. The Canadian Government accepted the RCAF's advice, but McDonnell made a counter proposal. McDonnell's executives suggested that the Canadian Government order enough Phantoms to replace their entire fighter force, in exchange McDonnell would buy back the Voodoos, Orenda would manufacture J79 engines. The Government agreed to order enough Phantoms to equip nine squadrons, plus an operational training unit. The high rates of F-4 production at the time would allow for fairly rapid delivery beginning in 1968. The official Canadian designation for the Phantom was CF-110, but it was universally known as the CF-4.
     
    The Canadian Forces Air Command fielded four Phantom squadrons for NORAD, two for NATO at CFB Baden-Sollingen, three more NATO reinforcement squadorns in Canada, and an Operational Training Unit.

  17. CF-4E Phantom II - Canadian Forces - Part 2

    Introduction
     
    Here is McDonnell Douglas CF-110E Phantom II for the Canadian Forces Air Command. It is based on ravenclaw_007's new F-4E. This package contains the CF-4E, skins in Canadian Voodoo Grey and SEA camouflage.
     
    History
     
    During the 1960s, the Royal Canadian Air Force commenced a search for a more affordable fighter to supplement the CF-101 Voodoo, and the CF-104 Starfighter. The RCAF advised the government to acquire the F-4 Phantom II. The Canadian Government accepted the RCAF's advice, but McDonnell made a counter proposal. McDonnell's executives suggested that the Canadian Government order enough Phantoms to replace their entire fighter force, in exchange McDonnell would buy back the Voodoos, Orenda would manufacture J79 engines. The Government agreed to order enough Phantoms to equip nine squadrons, plus an operational training unit. The high rates of F-4 production at the time would allow for fairly rapid delivery beginning in 1968. The official Canadian designation for the Phantom was CF-110, but it was universally known as the CF-4.
     
    The Canadian Forces Air Command fielded four Phantom squadrons for NORAD, two for NATO at CFB Baden-Sollingen, three more NATO reinforcement squadorns in Canada, and an Operational Training Unit.
     
    In Europe, the CF-4 undertook the roles of close support, battlefield air superiority, and strike with nuclear and conventional weapons. Beginning in 1972, the reconnaissance role was filled by twenty four new RF-4E distributed among the NATO squadrons.
     
    In 1981, 414 Squadron was made operational with twenty CF-4G Wild Weasel aircraft.
     
    Canada's Phantoms saw combat in the Gulf War, and in Bosnia. After the Bosnian War, Canada decided to replace the CF-4 with the F/A-18C/D. The Phantom began to be phased out of CAF service in 1995, and was finally retired in 1998. Most of the surviving Canadian Phantoms were converted into QF-4 target drones.

    Loadouts

  19. [Renewed] F-4K Phantom II - Royal Australian Navy

    This contains three F-4K Phantom IIs in the markings of the Royal Australian Navy. 724, 805, and 808 Squadrons are portrayed. 805 Squadron is portrayed operating from HMAS Melbourne, while 808 Squadron is based on Sydney. 724 Squadron is portrayed as a training squadron operating from HMAS Albatross, a Naval Air Station at Nowra, New South Wales.
     
    The three time periods of TK's F-4K DLC are represented, original, 75, and 80.
     
    For all, a standard US Navy Gull Grey/White skin is provided, and for the F-4K 80, a two-tone grey camouflage is also provided for 805 and 808 Squadrons. The latter is similar to the camouflage seen on some RAN A-4G Skyhawks near the end of their service life.
     
    Modified F-4J loadouts are used.
     
    Please note carefully: You cannot use the inboard pylons and the AIM-9 rails simultaneously. If you load one, the other will empty. This is not a bug per se, this is simply an inbuilt limitation for the Spey Phantoms.
     
    The aircraft has been tested in a merged SF2 installation, patched to August 2012. I have included paulopanz's F-4K DLC enhamcement.
     
    I have included a squadrons.ini. This is not necessary for this mod, but is necessary for the RAAF and RCAF F-4M Phantoms.
     
    Incidentally, I'd suggest also getting Wrench's HMAS Australia (SCB-125 "What If") located here: http://combatace.com...cb-125-what-if/
     
    Backstory
     
    The RAN proposed the acquisition of Essex class carriers to the Government in 1964 to replace the Majestic class HMAS Melbourne. The aircraft the RAN proposed was the F-4B Phantom.
     
    Operating an F-4B from the relatively small deck of an Essex class carrier is problematic, to say the least. On the other hand, the F-4K Phantom modifications would enable the operation of a Phantom from such a small deck.

  20. [Renewed] CF-110K Phantom II - Royal Canadian Navy

    This contains three F-4K Phantom IIs in the markings of the Royal Canadian Navy. The real CF2H Banshee squadrons, VF-870 and VF-871 are portrayed.

    For all, a standard US Navy Gull Grey/White skin is provided, and for the F-4K 80, a two-tone grey camouflage is also provided. The latter is similar to the camouflage seen on some US Navy and USMC F-4 Phantoms near the end of their service life.

    Backstory
     
    The idea for this aircraft comes from my alternate history site. It was first operated by this alternate Royal Canadian Navy in 1968 (in this timeline, there was no unification in the Canadian Armed Forces)
    The aircraft was meant to serve on Canada's two Essex class carriers, HMCS Bonaventure and HMCS Magnificent in the fleet defence and strike roles. In order to get the performance required for such small carriers, a new turbofan was developed by Orenda, the Orenda Huron. Redesign of the Phantom airframe to accomodate the larger engine was done by Avro Canada.

  21. CF-110M Phantom II - Royal Canadian Air Force

    The CF-110M Phantom II for the Royal Canadian Air Force.
     
    There are three versions of the F-4M in this mod.
    TK's F-4M: ADC Grey, SEA, RAF Green/Grey, Olive Drab.
    TK's F-4M (75): ADC Grey, SEA wrap around, RAF Green/Grey wrap around, Olive Drab, Euro 1.
    TK's F-4M (80): ADC Grey, SEA wrap around, RAF Green/Grey wrap around, Olive Drab, Euro 1.

    The following squadrons are provided:
    409 Squadron
    410 Squadron
    416 Squadron
    425e Escadre

    Modified F-4D loadouts are used. It is impossible to use the Sidewinder rails and the inboard pylons simultaneously. This is a built-in limitation of the F-4K and F-4M.
     
    Back Story
     
    The idea for this aircraft comes from my alternate history site. It was first operated by this alternate Royal Canadian Air Force in 1969 (in this timeline, there was no unification in the Canadian Armed Forces)
    The RCAF originally did not want the Phantom, being content to stick with the Thunderchief and the Voodoo until the TFX (CF-111C) and FX (CF-15) were ready during the 1970s.
    Canadian participation in the Vietnam War changed that. Canada committed Voodoos to defend the social democratic North Vietnam from Nazi German forces operating from the South and from Burma. The CF-101's inability to dogfight, and unreliability in the harsh tropical conditions of North Vietnam made early replacement necessary. The only aircraft available was the CF-4K, being introduced to the RCN as its strike fighter. McDonnell and Avro Canada devised a land-based version with minimal changes. This entered service in 1969 and quickly went to Vietnam. After the war ended in 1975, the Phantom replaced the Voodoo entirely in the RCAF.

  22. [Renewed] F-4M Phantom II - Royal Australian Air Force

    The F-4M Phantom II for the Royal Australian Air Force.
     
    There are three versions of the F-4M in this mod.
    TK's F-4M: This is intended as a strike aircraft (but is capable in all roles). In this scenario, it was operated by 2 Squadron, 12 Squadron, and 460 Squadron. It comes in the SEA colour scheme, a Green/Grey RAF-style scheme, and an overall olive drab (as on the CF-104).
    TK's F-4M (75): This is an interceptor operated by 3 Squadron, 30 Squadron, and 458 Squadron. It comes in an ADC Grey scheme, a wrap-around SEA scheme, the Euro 1 scheme, and a wrap-around Green/Grey RAF-style scheme.
    TK's F-4M (80): Again, this is an interceptor operated by 3, 30, and 458 Squadrons. It comes in the grey scheme worn by RAF Phantoms near the end of their service lives, Euro 1, a wrap-around Green/Grey RAF-style scheme, and a wrap-around SEA scheme. Low-visibility national markings are provided for the grey scheme.

    I have taken the SF2 Realism Mod SquadronList.ini and added 12, 30, 458, and 460 Squadrons to it, and numbered the decals accordingly.
     
    Back Story
     
    The idea for this aircraft comes from my alternate history site. It was first operated by this alternate Royal Canadian Navy in 1968.
     
    The RAAF's primary strike aircraft for the sixties was the F-105 Thunderchief. During the Vietnam War, the RAAF used its Thunderchiefs to strike targets of strategic importance to the Saigon Fascist regime. However, German air defences in South Vietnam had taken their toll on the Thuds. With the F-111C suffering serious delays, the RAAF took what was available, the F-4 Phantom. This aircraft had just been introduced by the Royal Australian Navy. In Vietnam, the Phantom enjoyed a high level of success, and showed its multi-role capacity.
     
    With the delivery of the F-111s, and their work up to full operational capability, the RAAF needed to find a mission for its Phantoms, or a buyer. The RAAF recommended early replacement of the F-106 Delta Dart. The Government accepted this option, and the F-4M served as Australia's air defender until the early 1990s.

  23. [Fictional] RAN, RCN, RAAF, RCAF F-4K/M Phantom update pack

    Contents
     
    This contains the following changes and additions:
    Capability to mount rail-launched AIM-7 Sparrow missiles on the inboard wing pylons. The F-4K 80 and F-4M 80 have their missiles mounted further forward to clear the chaff and flare dispensers.
    Grouping of the inboard pylon and Sidewinder rails together. This makes the loading screen neater, and preserves the inability to use the Sidewinder rails and inboard pylon simultaneously.
    Rail launched versions of the AIM-7 Sparrow (AIM-7E to AIM-7P are covered).
    An EMI Reconnaissance Pod adapted for the USAF and USN attachment types. This pod is carried on the centreline pylon. It will show up in the loadout under the name "F-4K/M Reconnaissance Pod"
    Auscam skins for the RAAF F-4M '75 and F-4M '80. This skin is a recolouring of the SEA wraparound skin using standard Australian vehicle camouflage colours(As seen on this M1A1 Abrams: http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k198/Phil_H_au/misc/abrams_camo_2.jpg ). For the F-4M 75, full colour decals are used, the F-4M 80 uses black decals for lower visibility.
    Renaming of the skins in TextureSet.ini for consistency.
    Fixed tail skin for the camouflaged RAN F-4K. The upper part of the tailplane now contains the correct unpainted portion.
    Various other skin fixes.
    Recoloured decals for the "LateGrey" RAAF F-4M 80. The new decals are significantly lightened for lower visibility.
    Removed "USN" from AttachmentType for the Sidewinder rails for RAAF and RCAF aircraft, and substituted USAF.

  24. F-4K Phantom II - VC-724, Royal Australian Navy

    This is an additional skin for my F-4K Phantom II - Royal Australian Navy portraying the markings of 724 Squadron.
     
    In real life, 724 Squadron (or VC-724) was the RAN Fleet Air Arm's fast jet training squadron. 724 Squadron commissioned in the RAN in 1955 as a fighter training squadron. In real life, it operated various types including the C-47, Sea Vampire, Sea Venom, Macchi MB-326H trainers, and A-4G Skyhawks. From 1972, VC-724 operated only Macchis and Skyhawks. Australia's carrier, HMAS Melbourne was decommissioned in 1982, and VC-724 transferred its Macchis to the RAAF and absorbed VF-805's Skyhawks. The Squadron decommissioned in 1984, with its remaining aircraft being sold to the RNZAF.
     
    The Phantom skin provided here contains the "gold delta" tail design used on many of VC-724's Skyhawks. In line with the markings of my operational Phantoms, the decals for the squadron patch (splitter plate), squadron number, and ship name are also provided.
