  5. They have said they will be working on the HAWK and P40F, but they aren't developing anything else specifically for DCS. However, it seems they are interested in releasing further products down the line for DCS after they are launched on other platforms. They still have their Typhoon stuff on the website but I don't think the site has been touched by them since that update. But I'd guess that they'd continue their work on that.

  7. WW2 Looking Back

    WW2 interesting photos and facts The first American serviceman killed in the war was Captain Robert M. Losey. He was serving as a military attache and was killed in Norway on April 21, 1940 when German aircraft bombed the Dombs railway station where he and others were awaiting transport. The first German soldier killed in World War II was Lieutenant von Schmeling, who was a military advisor to the Nationalist Chinese (China had been at war with Japan since 1931). He was killed while leading a Chinese infantry Battalion of the 88th Division of Shanghai in 1937. Suicide Submarines Japan employed multiple types of suicide attacks during the war, including suicide submarines called Kaiten ("the turn toward heaven"). Approximately 100 of these were used, the most famous of which was used in the sinking of the USS Underhill. Finnish snipers were some of the deadliest in the world. During the Winter War (November 1939 - March 1940), the Soviet Union invaded Finland hoping to gain Finnish territory and create a buffer zone for Leningrad. Because of the inexperience of Soviet troops and the incredible effectiveness of Finnish snipers, the USSR lost 40 men to every Finn that was killed. Massive Submarines In 2005, dive researchers from the University of Hawaii discovered the remains of a massive Japanese submarine, I-401. This behemoth was basically an underwater aircraft carrier and was built to bomb the Panama Canal-it carried three folded up bombers inside its watertight hangar. The huge submarine could sail 37,000 miles, or one and a half times around the world. Three of these subs were captured at the end of the war. They measured 400 feet long and 39 feet high, and could carry a crew of 144 men. According to the AAF Statistical Digest, the U.S. Army Air Forces lost 14,903 pilots and crew in the United States. These men died as a result of more than 50,000 accidents during the course of the war. Another 1,000 planes disappeared en route from the U.S. to foreign countries. Air losses were so staggering during 1942-43 that it was statistically impossible for bomber crews to complete a 25-mission tour in Europe. More than 41,000 American servicemen were captured during the war. Of the 5,400 captured by the Japanese, half died. About 10% of those captured by Germans died. The youngest U.S. serviceman was just 12 years old. Calvin Graham lied about his age to get into the service and was later wounded at the Battle of Guadalcanal. He was given a Dishonorable Discharge for lying about his age, though his benefits were later restored by act of Congress. Some baffling bits of irony: 1. The insignia of the U.S. Army's 45th Infantry division was the swastika (the 45th was part of the Oklahoma Army National Guard and the swastika was a tribute to the large Native American population in the southwest) 2. Hitler's private train at the start of the war was named "Amerika" 3. At the time Pearl Harbor was attacked, the top U.S. Navy command was called CINCUS (pronounced "sink us") 793 German U-boats were lost in World War II. Of the nearly 40,000 men onboard those subs, 75% died at sea. More men died in the U.S. Air Corps than the U.S. Marine Corps. It is estimated that while completing your required 30 air missions, your odds of being killed were 71%. And fact #30 about U.S. troops is even more sobering. The power grid in Germany was more vulnerable than the Allies realized during the war. Some experts speculate that if Allied bombers had dropped just 1% of their bombs on power plants instead of industrial factories and targets, the whole of Germany's infrastructure likely would have collapsed. There was really no such thing as an average fighter pilot-you were either an ace or machine gun fodder. One of Japan's top fighter pilots, Hiroyoshi Nishizawa, shot down over 80 planes during the war but died while a passenger on a cargo plane. One of Germany's top aces, Oberst Werner Moders, died as a passenger on a plane that crashed. In their guns, fighter planes loaded every fifth round with a glowing tracer to help them aim correctly. This turned out to be a big mistake, since tracers took a different flight path than regular bullets-if your tracers were hitting their target, odds are 80% of your regular rounds were missing. To make things worse, including tracer rounds immediately told your enemy he was under attack, and it let him know which direction you were coming from. Perhaps worst of all, pilots would load a string of tracer rounds at the end of ammunition belt to let them know when they'd run out of ammo. Unfortunately, this also let the enemy know they were out of ammunition. It is said that pilots who stopped using tracers saw their hit rates nearly double and suffered less casualties. Russian pilots destroyed hundreds of German aircraft by ramming them in midair. A few famous Russian pilots were able to eject after ramming enemy planes and survived to fight in future battles. Germany also began using aerial ramming near the end of the war. Because of its massive number of troop transports, the U.S. Army actually had more ships than the U.S. Navy. When the U.S. Army landed in North Africa, they brought along more than troops and equipment: they also set up three complete Coca-Cola bottling plants to keep troops well supplied. Korean Soldiers Some of the first Germans captured during the invasion of Normandy weren't German at all, they were Korean. These soldiers had been forced to fight for the Japanese army until they were captured by the Russians, who forced them to fight for the Russian army. They were later captured by the Germans and forced to fight as German troops. Germany officially declared war on just one nation in World War II: The United States of America. The Dachau concentration camp first opened in 1933, six years before the start of World War II. The Dachau camp system grew to include nearly 100 sub-camps. 20% of Poland's population died during World War II, the highest percentage of any nation. Japan occupied U.S. territory for more than a year, invading and holding two islands in the Aleutian Island chain, which is part of Alaska. Nearly 1,500 American troops were killed in 13 months of fighting to retake the islands. Polish Catholic midwife Stanislawa Leszczynska delivered 3,000 babies at the Auschwitz concentration camp during the Holocaust in occupied Poland. Only 20% of the males born in the Soviet Union in 1923 survived the war. Adolf Hitler's nephew, William Hitler, served in the U.S. Navy during World War II No Surrender Hiroo Onoda, an Imperial Japanese Army intelligence officer who fought in World War II, held his position in the Philippines and refused to surrender until 1974. His former commander traveled from Japan to personally issue orders relieving him from duty. More than 16,000,000 American troops served in World War II. Of these, 405,000 were killed during the war. Ladies of the Hitler Era One shudders to think what happened to them in 1945. Total casualties for World War II are estimated between 50 and 70 million people. 80% of those came from just four countries: Russia, China, Germany, and Poland.

  10. File Name: The Continuation War Pt. A File Submitter: ShrikeHawk File Submitted: 18 May 2016 File Category: User Made Campaigns Admin: This is complete install without any Campaigns. I didn't know where else to put it. The Continuation War was fought between 25 June 1941 and 19 September 1944 between Finland and the USSR. This was a true David and Goliath battle. Finland cobbled together a small airforce from the obsolete aircraft of other countries and faced a colossal Soviet Sir Force. Finland should have been overrun within weeks, but that's not how it worked out... This is a tribute to the tenacity of the Finnish armed forces. This is a complete install of the Continuation War. It is built for the benefit of those "without access" to the more diverse ww2 resources of the Development A-Team (DAT), though anyone is welcome to use this Continuation War install. In no way is this intended as a competing product for the A-Team's Winter War. Rather, it is an alternative for those unable to access DAT. This is an informal install. It is not offered as a final product, merely as something to get you flying in the region until further resources are available at CA. If some brave soul will make a Karelian Isthmus terrain, I'd be eternally grateful. In this install you get: - New skins - Skins "adapted" for use over the battlefield. - New Flight Models (FMs) with Aggressive AI. - Sounds from AvHistory and others. - New Menu screens and sounds. Finnish Aircraft Include: - Hawker Hurricane Mk I - Curtiss Hawk 75A-8 - Morane Saulnier Ms.406 - VL Myrsky II - Messerschmidt Bf-109G-2 - Messerschmidt Bf-109G-6 - Junkers Ju-88A-4 - Dornier Do-17Z Soviet Aircraft Include: - Hawker Hurricane Mk IIa - Polikarpov I-16 Type 10 - Polikarpov I-16 Type 24 - Bell P-39N Airacobra - Curtiss Kittyhawk Mk III - Tupolev Tu-2 - North American B-25C - Yakolev Yak-1B - Yakolev Yak-9T - Yakolev Yak-9D - Yakolev Yak-9U CREDITS* Awesome Terrain: gillg (JonathanRL's TSF team) Models: Veltro2K, Raven, Pasko, MontyCZ, Cocas, Wolf257, and Others Cockpits: Stary, Kesselbrut, and Others Sounds: AvHistory, and Others FlightModels: Baffmeister, Charles, ShrikeHawk, and Others Skins: Charles, Raven, ShrikeHawk, Spinners and Many Others EnvironmentSystem.ini: Stary 3-D Clouds & EnvironmentSystem mods: ShrikeHawk Guns & Weapons compiled by: Wrench Thanks to Wrench in general. He had a hand in a lot of this stuff. He keeps the props flames burning, and answers a LOT of questions. Much appreciated Wrench. * This compiles so many different projects over so many years and so many missing readme's, that there are many more people deserving credit than are listed. If you've been missed, I apologize profusely. Please let me know and I'll put your name in. A few comprises were made to get this going. The Swedish terrain (produced by JonathanRL's TSF team) is modern Sweden. However it has an old world feel to it that plays well in a ww2 install. Pasko's Yak-9P stands in for the Yak-1B, Yak-9T, Yak-9D, and Yak-9U. There are minor differences between the versions so visually, the Yak-9P is an excellent stand-in. There is one "What If" included. The Fiat G.55 did not fly for Finland. In reality, Germany was very impressed with the G.55 and collected up to 42 examples for study. What happened to them after that? Well, they might easily have been donated to Finland like so many other aircraft. INSTALLATION: - Download all three parts - Create a new Theater-Specific install.

I tried creating a new Mods folder that didnt work then tried making a new mods folder with a different exe and that didnt work either, Ive tried reinstalling the Terrains and aircraft all to no avail :( I am out of ideas... does anyone have any?
  15. Hey CA! I am trying for the first time to make a standalone WW2 install away from the jets... I am having a rough go of it thou, 3/4 of the terrains Ive downloaded such as the Phillipeans and Formosa crash to desktop every single time at 80% Im not totally sure what ive done wrong installing them is it possible Im missing ground objects? I have the WW2 formations and nations INI's I'm totally stumped... I Seem to have fixed the issue the name of the Water.bmp files were capitalized differently than the callout in the terrain.ini files in case anyone else is having the same issue... I feel dumb now haha
  16. ​I recently started a WW2 install and for some reason the Philippines terrain always crashes to the desktop at 80% I'm not really sure what the issue here is any ideas?

  20. File Name: Essex class (long-hull) aircraft carrier File Submitter: WhiteBoySamurai File Submitted: 27 September 2015 File Category: Aircraft Carriers This model represents the long-hull straight-deck Essex class aircraft carriers, beginning with CV-14 USS Ticonderoga circa 1944. These ships were about 5 meters longer than the original CV-9 Essex, and featured heavier anti-aircraft armament. Two versions of the ship are included: The original WW2 configuration, and the jet-capable Korean War era modernization. Decals for each unit are included. Random aircraft parking has been designed for currently available models with folding wings. In addition to its complement of aircraft, each ship is armed with a battery of twin 5" guns and single 5" guns, plus a vast number of 40mm Bofors and 20mm Oerlikon anti-aircraft guns. Please see the readme for full details and credits. Because this is a very high-poly, high-definition model, instructions are also included to improve framerate for those of us without premium supercomputers. This model is dedicated to Wrench, who requested it, and who provides us with great playgrounds for all our toys. Click here to download this file

  24. File Name: StrikeFighter2 World War II PTO Hi-Res Alternate 1024x768 Menu Screens and Music! File Submitter: viper63a File Submitted: 29 July 2015 File Category: Menus StrikeFighter2 World War II PTO Hi-Res Alternate 1024x768 Menu Screens and Music! By Viper I recently downloaded the "All inclusive SF2 Pacific Theater of Operations" (PTO) package from the A-Team site. Excellent package, but the menus were not to my liking...soooo...I upgraded them. These menu screens are tailored for that package, but it should work for any SF2 game with a Pacific WWII theme! Note: These are new Menu Screens for the A-Team PTO Package - NOT THE A-TEAM PTO PACKAGE. If you want the SF2 Pacific Theater of Operations package, you will have to download it from the A-Team site. A little tricky getting registered, but I recommend it! You should unzip the file and preview the new screens before installing them. I recommend doing this as there are MANY alternate screens I have in there that you might like better. If you choose to install these screens, I recommend that you back up (make a copy of) your FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders in the SF2 Mod folder you're installing this mod into. Just in case you want to go back to your original setup. To install, simply unzip and copy the uncompressed FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders to your StrikeFighter2 mod folder. To remove, simply delete the FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders and rename the copies you made to FLIGHT, MENU and PILOTDATA folders. My StrikeFighter2 mod on Win97 64-bit would be something like... C:\Users\<your_id>\Saved Games\Thirdwire\<Name of your PTO mod folder>\ Enjoy! PS. Check out my Init Screen mod in the "InitScreen Extra" folder... Click here to download this file
