View File [Fictional] Mikoyan MiG-21bis Parani Air Force Mikoyan MiG-21bis 'Paran' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire MiG-21bis to create a fictional export version in service with the Parani Air Force during 1978-2002. The skin is by Paulopanz and I've added a matching drop tank and a fictional Parani missile named 'Zulfiqar' (basically a license-built version of the R.550 Matra Magic) with a matching skin. It goes without saying that you must have the stock MiG-21bis in your install but the skin could be renamed to fit most other stock MiG-21's. INSTRUCTIONS 1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the MiG-21bisP folder into your Aircraft folder. 2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the MiG-21bisP folder into your main Decals folder. 3. From the PILOTS folder drag and drop the PILOT_PARAN folder into you main Pilots folder. 4. From the SOUNDS folder drag and drop the SOVIET_DRY and SOVIET_WET files into your main Sounds folder. 5. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the TANK_MiG21BISP and ZULFIQAR folders into your main Weapons folder. That's it! CREDITS Thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim.

  7. View File [Fictional] McDonnell Douglas F-4EZ Phantom McDonnell Douglas F-4EZ Phantom for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire F-4E_78 to create a fictional South African Air Force F-4EZ Phantom in service with No.2 Squadron in the following schemes and timeframes; 1. 1979-1981 A 'Mirage F.1CZ' style scheme with tricolour fin and 'Springbok' national markings. 2. 1982-2002 As above but with the later style of national markings. 3. 2003-2012 Final Grey scheme with toned-down national markings. It goes without saying that you must have the F-4E_78 LOD's in your install and you'll also need the Mirage 3CZ DLC for the V3B Kukri and serial number decals although there are some easy workarounds if you don't. The idea for this 'what if' came from Stratos who created the 'Mirage F.1CZ' style skin whilst I did the tank skins, decals and packaging so it's an Anglo-Spanish joint venture and we hope that you enjoy it! BACKSTORY During the mid-1970's the South African Government made tentative enquiries regarding purchasing the McDonnell Douglas Phantom for the South African Air Force (SAAF) with no success but in February 1977 the incoming Democrat President of the United States, Jimmy Carter, and the South African State President Nicolaas Diederichs agreed to the purchase of 30 F-4EZ's for delivery in 1979 and these were among the very last St. Louis-built Phantoms produced. Entering service with No.2 Squadron 'The Flying Cheetahs' of the SAAF the F-4EZ's initially operated from Hoedspruit AFB before moving to Louis Trichardt AFB in early 1993. With SAAF Impalas, Buccaneers and Mirage F.1CZ's operating in the ground-attack role the Phantoms saw limited action in the Border War but at least four Angolan MiG-21's and two Mi-17 helicopters were shot down by No.2 Squadron. The surviving F-4EZ's were finally retired in 2019 when they replaced by Eurofighter Typhoons. INSTRUCTIONS 1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-4EZ folder into your Aircraft folder. 2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-4EZ folder into your main Decals folder. 3. From the WEAPONS folder drag and drop the V3B4 folder into your main Weapons folder. That's it! CREDITS Thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim. Muchas gracias to Stratos for the superb SAAF 'Mirage F.1CZ' style skin created with a little bit of help from Ludo on SAAF colours and Sundowner's legendary F-4E templates - thanks guys!

  11. View File Harbin H-5 (Chinese Il-28 Beagle) Harbin H-5 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire Il-28 'Beagle' to create the reverse engineered Harbin H-5 copy. As the PLAAF also operated the Il-28 I've set the service dates to match those given for the stock Third Wire Il-28 (for China) but the Chinese H-5 programme was a slow starter and it didn't enter service until 1967. Generic markings with new serial numbers based on the photo of '83002' with a painted radome are included and please note that this mod uses Wrench's F-4B pit for pasko's Yak-25B 'Brewer' so it should work with any version of SF2 that has medium length runways. INSTRUCTIONS 1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the H-5 folder into your Aircraft folder. 2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the H-5 folder into your main Decals folder. 3. From the PILOTS folder drag and drop the PILOT_PLAAF folder into your main Pilots folder. That's it! CREDITS Thanks to Third Wire for a great little game/sim. Thanks to Wrench for the Brewer cockpit.

  15. View File [Fictional] Lockheed F-104E Starfighter 'ANG' Lockheed F-104E for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire F-104G to create a fictional USAF F-104E with markings for; 112th TFS of the Ohio ANG in a 'Euro One' style scheme. 162nd TFS of the Ohio ANG in a 'Euro One' style scheme. 198th TFS of the Puerto Rico ANG in a 'T.O. 1-1-4' style scheme. It goes without saying that you must have the F-104G LOD's in your install. BACKSTORY Whilst, officially, USAF interest in the F-104 programme began to ebb (leading to only 77 F-104C's being built) they kept a watchful eye on Lockheed's progress into transforming the original hot-rod interceptor fighter into a multi-mission tactical fighter for export to selected 'free world' nations. As negotiations with Federal Germany reached a critical phase in 1958 concern was expressed by the Bonn government that Lockheed were attempting to sell an aircraft no longer wanted by it's home nation. Lockheed cleverly took these concerns back to Washington and claimed that lucrative export orders were at jeopardy leading to a token order for a new version of the Starfighter for the USAF. Designated F-104E this new version broadly represented a halfway house between the F-104C and the forthcoming F-104G. Only 60 F-104E's were planned to be produced but the success of the F-104C flown by Capt Charles E. Tofferi in the 1962 William Tell tactical weapons meet, against strong competition from F-100 and F-105 pilots, led to continued low-rate production followed by a larger batch of 240 F-104E's making an eventual total of 336. F-104E's were deployed to Vietnam and surviving aircraft were refurbished for ANG use with the type being finally retired in 1988 when the 112th TFS re-equipped with F-16A's. INSTRUCTIONS 1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the F-104E folder into your Aircraft folder. 2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the F-104E folder into your main Decals folder. That's it!

    Lockheed F-104E for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire F-104G to create a fictional USAF F-104E with markings for; 112th TFS of the Ohio ANG in a 'Euro One' style scheme. 162nd TFS of the Ohio ANG in a 'Euro One' style scheme. 198th TFS of the Puerto Rico ANG in a 'T.O. 1-1-4' style scheme. It goes without saying that you must have the F-104G LOD's in your install. BACKSTORY Whilst, officially, USAF interest in the F-104 programme began to ebb (leading to only 77 F-104C's being built) they kept a watchful eye on Lockheed's progress into transforming the original hot-rod interceptor fighter into a multi-mission tactical fighter for export to selected 'free world' nations. As negotiations with Federal Germany reached a critical phase in 1958 concern was expressed by the Bonn government that Lockheed were attempting to sell an aircraft no longer wanted by it's home nation. Lockheed cleverly took these concerns back to Washington and claimed that lucrative export orders were at jeopardy leading to a token order for a new version of the Starfighter for the USAF. Designated F-104E this new version broadly represented a halfway house between the F-104C and the forthcoming F-104G. Only 60 F-104E's were planned to be produced but the success of the F-104C flown by Capt Charles E. Tofferi in the 1962 William Tell tactical weapons meet, against strong competition from F-100 and F-105 pilots, led to continued low-rate production followed by a larger batch of 240 F-104E's making an eventual total of 336.

  17. View File [Fictional] Douglas A-4D Skyhawk 'USAF' Douglas A-4D Skyhawk 'USAF' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire A-4E to give a fictional USAF A-4D with markings for the 416th Tactical Fighter Squadron ('The Silver Knights') in 1967 although the service years are a more generous 1964 to 1985. BACKSTORY During the Spring of 1961 the incoming Secretary of Defence Robert S. McNamara left no stone unturned in his search for efficiencies in procurement and operational costs and his attention soon turned to the successful Douglas A4D 'Skyhawk' programme. Douglas had already transformed their 'bantam bomber' by replacing the Curtiss-Wright J65 engine with the Pratt & Whitney J52-P6A engine and the forthcoming A4D-5 (A-4E) version was chosen as the baseline for a minimum-change version for the USAF. Designated A-4D (after the introduction of the tri-service designation system) the USAF Skyhawks saw extensive service at home and abroad and, in particular, served with distinction in Vietnam where they replaced a variety of tactical aircraft. INSTRUCTIONS 1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the A-4D folder into your Aircraft folder. 2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the A-4D folder into your main Decals folder. That's it!

  23. View File [Fictional] Ilyushin IL-28 'Beagle' Fuerza Aérea Argentina Ilyushin IL-28 'Beagle' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2 This is a very simple mod of the stock Third Wire IL-28 to give a flyable (and fictional) IL-28 in service with the Fuerza Aérea Argentina with markings for; Grupo 1 de Bombardeo in the silver scheme as delivered. Grupo 2 de Bombardeo in the later 'sea grey' scheme selected for 'over-water' operations. I've put a patch.psd 'template' in there in case you'd like to switch things around and have both in silver or both in grey. COCKPIT I've used the A-4B pit as I think the cockpit framing looks quite suitable and the pit is nice and low-tech. The disadvantages are that there is no radar (not that the Beagle's radar was of much use) and that the A-4B pit is, of course, single-enginned. However, you can easily switch to another stock pit or go third-party. INSTRUCTIONS 1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the IL-28_FAA folder into your Aircraft folder. 2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the IL-28_FAA folder into your Decals folder. 3. From the PILOTS folder drag and drop the PILOT_COAN folder into your Pilots folder. That's it!

  25. View File RAF Phantom FGR.5 for Strike Fighters 1 McDonnell Douglas Phantom FGR.5 for STRIKE FIGHTERS 1 This is a simple mod of the stock Phantom F-4E to give a 'what if' Phantom FGR.5 tactical fighter with markings for No.6 and No.41 squadrons of RAF Strike Command as they might have appeared in the mid-1970's. In theory, this should work in any 'first generation' game that has the standard F-4E LOD's. BACKSTORY The cancellation of the Hawker P.1154 in 1964 quickly led to the adoption of the LTV F-8E(RN) Crusader for the Royal Navy to replace the Scimitar and Sea Vixen and the adoption of the McDonnell Douglas Phantom for the RAF to replace the Hunter. However, anxious to improve the UK's trade balance with the US, the UK Government insisted that the RAF's Phantoms would adopt either the Rolls Royce Spey turbofan or the Anglo-French Rolls Royce/SNECMA Sequanna turbofan then under development for the proposed Mirage IVB and advanced Mirage III aircraft. The Sequanna was quickly chosen being lighter and slimmer than the Spey and fitted the F-4 like a glove whilst producing about 1,000lbs more thrust per engine than the stock J79-GE-15 turbojet but with a lower specific fuel consumption. First flown in 1965 and entering service with the RAF in 1966 the Phantom F.1 supplemented the Lightning interceptors of RAF Fighter Command whilst the Phantom FG.2 re-equipped many Hunter and Canberra squadrons at home and abroad. The FR.3 was a planned version of the RF-4C that failed to materialise as the RAF adopted podded recconnaisance pods but the FGR.4 was the RAF's first true multi-role version of the Phantom taking advantage of the new F-4E airframe and a more powerful Sequanna RB.390 engine developing 19,000lbs with reheat. Only 50 FGR.4's were built before production switched to the FGR.5 with Sequanna RB.392 engines, slatted wings and more advanced avionics. The FGR.5's served at home and abroad, most notably with RAF Strike Command and RAF South East Asia Command before finally being retired in 2003. INSTRUCTIONS 1. From the AIRCRAFT folder drag and drop the PhantomFGR5 folder into your Aircraft folder. 2. From the DECALS folder drag and drop the PhantomFGR5 into your Decals folder. CREDITS Thanks to TK for a great little game/sim. Special thanks to Mike Druzolowski (mppd) for the superb shark-mouth decal that fits the F-4E really well. And thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community. Regards Spinners Version 2 - 05/03/18 Version 1 - 06/12/09 Submitter Spinners Submitted 12/06/2009 Category F-4 Phantom II
