  1. View File 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.

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.

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. Installation Install the contents of ModFolder into your mod folder. Overwrite as necessary.

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. Installation Install the contents of ModFolder into your mod folder. Overwrite as necessary. You must have the F-4K DLC from the ThirdWire DLC Store to use this mod. Notes There is also an RAN F-4K available wearing US-style schemes and a camouflage scheme based on that used by the RAN's A-4Gs late in their service. It can be integrated with this mod. Note that this mod has a different aircraft name. The name of this mod is "F-4K Phantom FG.21 (RAN)", while the US-style version is named "F-4K Phantom II (RAN)".

  7. File Name: [Renewed] F-4K Phantom II - Royal Australian Navy File Submitter: Sheriff001 File Submitted: 08 April 2013 File Category: The Combat Ace What If Hangar 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.
