View File Kuwaiti Skyhawks - A-4KU/TA-4KU for SF2 Kuwait Scooters - A-4KU/TA-4KU for SF2 - v1.0 ================================================== *** any SF2I that has the KfirC1_77 for the cockpit and DLC005 required for the A-4K model *** This mods represents the A-4KU and TA-4KU Skyhawks used by Kuwait between 1977 and 1992. In the 1970s Kuwait purchased 36 Skyhawks (30 single-seater + 6 two-seater). These planes were based upon A-4M, that were delivered to the USMC at that time. So they got the same engine, the larger canopy, the brakechute and the squared off fintip. Equipment needed to deliver nuclear weapons, aswell as Shrike- and Walleye were deleted. The TA-4KU were unique in having the same engine as the single-seater, aswell as the avionics hump. Apart from some aerials their appearance is similar to that of the OA-4M. When Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990, many of the pilots flew with their planes to Saudi Arabia. They were included in the Royal Saudi Air Force and flew 1361 sorties with the loss of only 1 plane. With the end of the Gulf War they were placed in storage and replaced by F/A-18 Hornets. After failed attempts to sell the surviving 23 planes to Bosnia and the Phillipines, they were finally sold to Brazil in 1997 to serve aboard the Aircraft Carrier Minas Gerais as AF-1 and AF-1A. Infos ===== - cockpit used is the modified KfirC1_77 cockpit, that is already used for my A-4M-mod. I only made small modifications to fit it the A-4KU. - Pilotmodel is a stand-in, until someone comes up with a Kuwaiti Pilot :) - Fakepilot-stuff like hump and the antennas are made with MUEs new Blender-exporter - as I already said and always will: Thank you, great job, mue! - Skin resolution is 4096x4096 - Skins are set up for "No9SQN" as I only found the general info, that planes were used by "No. 9 and No. 25 squadrons" and both squadrons didn't use any special markings it seems.

View File SF2 TA-4F Vietnam FastFACs - Revamp SF2 TA-4F Skyhawk "Vietnam FastFACs" - Revamp ============================================= *** SF2V required for the A-4F Cockpit, that is used here. Tested in full 5-merged installation *** This is a revamp of Wrenchs Update of 331Killerbees TA-4F FastFAC-Pack. ;) Skins have been redone in greater resolution with more details. Decals are new (although original Decals are still there). Some bits of the plane are removed by ini-edit and exchanged by FakePilot-Addons to add more details and get rid of the shadow-issue caused by the outer wing pylons. 5 new Droptanks are added (2x 150gal, 2x300gal, 1x400gal). BuNos are always correct for the squadron and many are also correct for the plane, although sources and pictures are very rare. H&MS-11 comes in 3 variations (CAG, Large Stripe + Bunny on Tail and Small Stripe without Bunny) that were used side by side as it seems H&MS-12 has CAG-Bird H&MS-13 has 2 Skins - The one from the original pack was used after Vietnam, but I redid it and included it. The one used in Vietnam has no special markings and a different Tailcode-style. I only found 1 pic as reference, so maybe other variation are possible too.

  7. Here is how close New Zealand came to deploying a Squadron of its A-4K Skyhaws to the Gulf War in the 90's, remember they had just been through an upgrade program equipping them with the APG-66 radar, glass cockpit with HUD, MIL-STD 1553B databus, laser INS and ALR-66 RWR. They were cleared to use the AIM-9L, AGM-65B/G, GBU-16C/B, Mk-81/82/83/84 low and high drag bombs. The following is a post by an A-4K avionics tech in the RNZAF 1984-2001 and author of the book SKYHAWKS: The History of the RNZAF Skyhawk. https://books.google.co.nz/books/about/Skyhawks.html?id=N7NCngEACAAJ&redir_esc=y "It was also an interesting time at Ohakea. 75 Sqn was in training to go to war, 2 Sqn were about to be deployed to Nowra and there was talk that the Nowra deployment would go on hold as all our A-4s and personnel would be needed to support 75 Sqn. The paint shop were all geared up to repaint the aircraft in desert camo, the deployment route to the Gulf had been worked out and everyone was being lined up at Medical for their jabs. The 75 Squadron Gulf War happy hour was very memorable - Sadam Husain even put in an appearance! Sadly nothing happened and 75 Sqn went to Williamtown as planned for a WILLOH Exercise at the end of January and 2 Sqn deployed to Nowra as planned at the beginning of February. Oh what might have been eh, had our politicians had some balls! Had we deployed the A-4s they would have been one of the most sophisticated ground attack aircraft in theatre with their then brand new Kahu avionics. We would most likey have been based alongside the Kuwaiti A-4s as they had had to leave all of their ground equipment, ground crew and spares in Kuwait when they evacuated to Saudi. A great opportunity was lost to demonstrate the value in having an Air Combat Force, something we would pay dearly for 10 years later under HC and Co." and: Question: "Was that a genuine plan to operate with the Kuwaiti Air Force? Would the A-K's not have come under RAF command as part of Operation Granby, and operated alongside the Tornadoes and Buccaneers?" Answer: "The US were looking for a fast and easy way to get the Kuwaiti A-4s back in the fight. All they had were their 20 odd aircraft, the pilots who flew them and the clothes they were wearing! They had to leave everything else behind when they left Kuwait. Deploying us along side of them would have solved their logistics and ground crew problem (and the Saudi's/Kuwaiti's would have paid NZ handsomely!). But instead they employed civilian contractors (mercenaries), all former USN/USMC guys. The USMC were still actively flying A-4Ms at that time and had just started disbanding squadrons, so sending over all of the weapons, spares and support equipment they needed wasn't really a problem (they just raided the boneyard). We probably would have come under the RAF command Dave but would have been used in a close air support role (what the A-4 was best at) rather than the longer range tactical strike the Tornados were doing. If we had gone I'm picking we would have fired a LOT of Mavericks... All pie in the sky stuff now but at the time these were the things various people in the RNZAF were seriously thinking about. Had we deployed the A-4s there were a few "fast track" mods we would have had to do to the aircraft (the first four we subsequently did to the aircraft anyway): 1. Fit and test the KY-58 secure radio kit to all aircraft - Kahu had installed the wiring etc. but it was not yet tested in 1991 (secret squirrel stuff). 2. Fit and test the Mode 4 IFF kit (same deal as above). 3. Programme the radar warning system with the threat and friendly radars 4. Update the weapon inventory software for any additional weapons were would be carrying 5. Uprate the engines (basically run the engine hotter to produce more thrust at full power - can be done but reduces engine life) 6. Repaint the aircraft " And so I give you No.75 Squadron, Royal New Zealand Airforce, A-4K Skyhawk, Joint New Zealand/ Kuwait Skyhawk Wing, Operation Desert Storm 1992, King Abdul Aziz Air Base, Dhahran. Expanding on the "fast track' mods Dom mentions above the CBU-87/B has been added to the Kiwi Skyhawk's inventory to enable medium altitude area attacks (as done for the RAF Jaguar's). ALQ-119(V)17 ECM pods are borrowed from the USAF and always carried operationally like most allied aircraft. Finally a handful of AN/ASQ-153 Pave Spike pods are also borrowed from the USAF enabling precision daylight strikes to be carried out without a 'buddy' aircraft to designate the target. The MIL-STD 1553B databus intalled during the project 'Kahu' upgrade is key to enabling the quick addition of additional ordnance and EW pods. Once the air threat had subsided the Kiwi Skyhaws stopped carrying a single AIM-9L and replaced it on most missions with an AGM-65B that the pilots used more as a substitute targeting pod to enable magnified target identification before attacking with bombs etc
  8. File Name: A-4M Skyhawk II - USMC - Complete Pack File Submitter: Nyghtfall File Submitted: 08 April 2016 File Category: A-4 A-4M Skyhawk II - US Marine Corpse for Thirdwire A-4 Skyhawks v1.02 ================================================================== *** SF2, SF2V, SF2I required (A-4F_74 model, KfirC1_77 cockpit and A-7E HUD-parts). Tested in full 5-merged installation only *** *** DLC 005 A-4K required *** In this mod included are 4 different versions of the plane with the following differences: - A-4M (available 1971-1975): much like A-4F, larger canopy. HighVis markings. - A-4M_75 (available 1975-1981): new nose, larger canopy, fintip fairing, new RHAW-system, HighVis markings. - A-4M_79 (available 1979-1982): new nose, larger canopy, fintip fairing, new RHAW-system, ARBS, LGB capable, early LowVis camouflage. - A-4M_82 (available 1982-1994): new nose, larger canopy, fintip fairing, new RHAW-system, ARBS, LGB capable, AGM-65 Maverick (1985+), later LowVis camouflage. This mod is based on dtmdragons Skyhawk II pack, he unfortunately never released. I used it as base and starting point, but rearranged it a bit, to incorporate new pylons and better reflect updates and the different camouflages used during the years. Included are the following Squadrons: - VMA-131 Diamondbacks (M_82) - VMA-142 Flying Gators (M_82) - VMA-211 Wake Island Avengers (M_75, M_79, M_82) - VMA-214 Black Sheep (M, M_75, M_79, 2x M_82) - VMA-223 Bulldogs (M_75, M_82) - VMA-311 Tomcats (M, M_75, M_82) - VMA-322 Fighting Gamecocks (M_82) - VMA-324 Devildogs (M) - VMA-331 BumbleBees (M, M_75, M_82) My thank goes to Dan (dtmdragon) for the Skyhawk II-Pack! Valuable Information came from 331Killerbee, who worked on the real planes and Muesli - Thanks you guys! A special thanks goes to RussoUK2004, who was patient enough to help me bring the new Blender-made Pylons to SF2!

    A-4M Skyhawk II - US Marine Corpse for Thirdwire A-4 Skyhawks v1.02 ================================================================== *** SF2, SF2V, SF2I required (A-4F_74 model, KfirC1_77 cockpit and A-7E HUD-parts). Tested in full 5-merged installation only *** *** DLC 005 A-4K required *** In this mod included are 4 different versions of the plane with the following differences: - A-4M (available 1971-1975): much like A-4F, larger canopy. HighVis markings. - A-4M_75 (available 1975-1981): new nose, larger canopy, fintip fairing, new RHAW-system, HighVis markings. - A-4M_79 (available 1979-1982): new nose, larger canopy, fintip fairing, new RHAW-system, ARBS, LGB capable, early LowVis camouflage. - A-4M_82 (available 1982-1994): new nose, larger canopy, fintip fairing, new RHAW-system, ARBS, LGB capable, AGM-65 Maverick (1985+), later LowVis camouflage. This mod is based on dtmdragons Skyhawk II pack, he unfortunately never released. I used it as base and starting point, but rearranged it a bit, to incorporate new pylons and better reflect updates and the different camouflages used during the years. Included are the following Squadrons: - VMA-131 Diamondbacks (M_82) - VMA-142 Flying Gators (M_82) - VMA-211 Wake Island Avengers (M_75, M_79, M_82) - VMA-214 Black Sheep (M, M_75, M_79, 2x M_82) - VMA-223 Bulldogs (M_75, M_82) - VMA-311 Tomcats (M, M_75, M_82) - VMA-322 Fighting Gamecocks (M_82) - VMA-324 Devildogs (M) - VMA-331 BumbleBees (M, M_75, M_82) My thank goes to Dan (dtmdragon) for the Skyhawk II-Pack!

  11. File Name: SF2 A-4F VA-164 'Ghost Riders' 1973 File Submitter: Nyghtfall File Submitted: 02 January 2015 File Category: A-4 A-4F Skyhawk, VA-164 'Ghost Riders' Vietnam 1973 Skinpack *** SF2V required for A-4F-model, tested in full 5-merged installation *** The skin represents A-4Fs from VA-164 'Ghost Riders' in 1973 aboard the carrier USS Hancock in Vietnam. All BuNo are correct for this squadron, but unfortunately I couldn't find the correct assignment for all modex to BuNo. This pack contains another version of "Lady Jessie", this time the wellknown version with big letters on the fuselage. In 1973 VA-164 was on another combat-cruise in Vietnam. Carrier Air Wing CVW-21, which VA-164 was part of, was tasked with the responsibility, to develop expertise in unique mission types. For example VA-55 was tasked with Iron Hand missions, while VA-164 was to develop tactics to use Laser Guided Weapons at its best. Some A-4F were equipped with Laser Spot Trackers instead of the ususal Radar in the nose, so that LGBs could be used on designated targets. As these were only trackers, a special Designator was needed. For that case, 2 TA-4F were borrowed from USMC squadrons. A 2nd crewmember with a handheld-device to designate the targets was placed on the 2nd seat. Those people were volunteers from other squadrons, that usually flew E-1B or RF-8/F-8. As the handheld-device had to be held steady for a proper designation while the plane was flying, it was a not well-like job to do. But in the end, it proved successful and led to the development of build-in laserdesignators. The pack consists of 2 parts: - a skin for the stock A-4F, which cannot use laser-guided bombs (LGB). So this is only for the looks. Select the skin in the loadout-screen of the stock A-4F. - a modification of the stock A-4F to use LGB. Ingame you will find a new plane - "A-4F (Laser Spot Tracker)" to choose. It also has a different gunsight and shows laser designated targets. For the laser-designator you have 2 options. First is to use the plane as is, meaning, you only can use LGBs on primary targets as they're always designated. The radarscreen is just black in that case, because the planes didnt have a radar anymore. Second, you use the Laser designator from the loadout screen and can use LGBs on every target. I included a modified AVQ-23 (modded from the stock one) for that purpose. It is not shown externally and is a compromise for playability-reasons. The radar-screen shows the target if you have selected one. Planes marked with * are the LST-equipped ones (401, 407, 411, 413, 414), which have the different nosecone. 401 and 407 are confirmed by pictures, the other 3 are in for a good mix. There were more than 2 of them, but I couldn't find more numbers or other pictures. Installation ============ 1. unzip to a temporary folder 2. open "Put_In_Your_Mod folder" and do as you were told, if asked to overwrite, say 'yes' :P 3. enjoy!

File Name: SF2 A-4E(65) VA-164 'Ghost Riders' 1967 File Submitter: Nyghtfall File Submitted: 25 October 2014 File Category: A-4 A-4E (65) Skyhawk, VA-164 'Ghost Riders' Vietnam 1967-1968 Skinpack by Nyghtfall v1.1 ====================================================================================== *** SF2V required for A-4E_65-model, tested in full 5-merged installation *** The skin represents A-4Es from VA-164 'Ghost Riders' between June 1967 and January 1968 aboard the carrier USS Oriskany in Vietnam. All BuNo are correct for this squadron, but unfortunately I couldn't find the correct assignment for all modex to BuNo. The plane number 406 (152048) is an early version of the well-known "Lady Jessie", named after Jessie Beck, an owner of a casino in Reno, Nevada by Richard Perry. As a young man, he worked in the casino, they befrieded and he later became her pseudo-adopted son, until he was commissioned in 1957. Part of the training took place at Fallon near Reno and she always took good care of him and his comrades with baskets of goodies. Even after R. Perry was assigned to VA-164, she took care of him and the entire squadron by sending care packages. At some point R. Perry painted "Lady Jessie" on one of the squadrons birds as hommage to Jessie Beck. In October 1967 R. Perry was shot down while on a raid over Haiphong, but Lady Jessie continued her care for the squadron and after that date it was common use to apply "Lady Jessie" on the 401 plane until the decommisioning of VA-164. The interesting story well-written: http://jeanettevaughan.wordpress.com/2014/10/12/lady-jessie-bell-and-the-navy-ghostriders-belle-of-steel-12/ Some highlights on this skinpack are: - new Baseskin with highter resolution (2048x2048) - a lot new maintenance markings (a big thank to Soulfreak for the pattern!) - new Decals for nearly everything :) - gray rudder - corrected Nosecone - updated data.ini is included, which contains the working canopy (SHIFT+0) and landing light (thanks to Wrench).

Some highlights on this skinpack are: - new Baseskin - new Decals for nearly everything :) - optional 'Griffin'-Decal as used on planes aboard USS Coral Sea (just change to commented parts at the end of decals.ini, to have it visible) - updated data.ini is included, which contains the working canopy (SHIFT+0) and landing light (thanks to Wrench). Installation ============ 1. unzip to a temporary folder 2. copy 'Objects'-folder from the zip to your mods 'Objects'-folder, if asked to overwrite, say 'yes'. 3. enjoy!

BuNo are correct for this squadron, but unfortunately I couldn't find the correct assignment for all modex to BuNo. The following ones are correct and confirmed by pictures or shotdownlists: 300 (152022), 301 (151049), 302 (151106), 303 (151070), 306 (151038), 310 (151082), 311 (151076), 313 (151105) All others are filled with BuNo that are correct for the timeframe and squadron, but miss an assignment to a specific modex. If someone has more information, please contact me for an update. One rare fact is, that some planes of VA-93 still wore the A-4C marking pattern (Insignia on front, 4-digit BuNo on tail, Navy on airbrakes) which was changed with the transition from A-4C to A-4E. According to my sources 301, 303 and 313 are confirmed for the old scheme. I added 308 and 312 for a good mix. Some highlights on this skinpack are: - new Baseskin with highter resolution (2048x2048) - new Decals for nearly everything :) - 2 Marking styles (Markings like A-4E for 300-315 except for 301,303,308,312 and 313, which wear the A-4C-scheme) - special Decals for the CAG bird (Number x00) - updated data.ini is included, which contains the working canopy (SHIFT+0) and landing light (thanks to Wrench).

Known Issues ============ - not all A-4Es had the Avionics Hump. I'm not sure, but I would think squadrons had a mix of A-4Es with and without hump and as my mainsource had one, it was the way to go. - the color-sequence of the cag-bird is open for discussion, you can find 2 versions (tailcolors upside down on the 2nd), i chose the more common Installation ============ 1. unzip to a temporary folder 2. copy 'Objects'-folder from the zip to your mods 'Objects'-folder, if asked to overwrite, say 'yes'. 3. enjoy!
