- Added new/changed JDAM weapons and icons to folders, but not to playset. Military Designations link added.

GBU162.JT was changed to GBU16T.JT. Added GBU-30(38), -30T, -31, -32, -32T

GBU39.JT has a different shape now. It uses MK81.SH
The other JDAMs use their dumb bomb shapes.

The new weapons icons are a blend on default, mine, and Zephyr's.

- Added the USNF'97 SU-37 to the aircraft/retired folder. It is not implemented in the playset. The links list has been modified. Keep an eye on updates as work continues on the F-35s and JDAMs. Due to restrictions of the game, the F-35s will not have built-in laser designators (hence, the creation of JDAMS).

- USNRaptor Playset v 1.8 is now available. The playset includes a few updates and bug fixes. Added two new Retired links; Centurian's Forsaken Outlaw and Strat's F/A World. Centurian's Collection of Tips & Tricks can be found in the Misc folder. The new FYI features has been added to the website. This feature will randomly list different notes of interest about the game and/or contents of the USNRaptor FTP Folder.

- USNRaptor Playset v 2.0 is now available. As usual, there have been some updates & additions to various aircraft, weapons, scenery, icons, etc... However, the biggest change is the removal of the campaigns and missions. These will now be available in a separate file called Campaigns.zip .

The reason for this change is because Fighters Anthology has a total file limit. With everything added, the limit is exceeded which causes the game to crash. Therefore, I recommend players upload the Playset files first, then add maybe two or three campaigns at a time. When done playing those campaigns, just delete those specific files and upload other campaigns. In the future, I may list the other option.

The latest campaign is now complete. It is the Baltic Campaign 1976 . Players will now fly the Buccaneer, Draken, F-4G, F-15A, F-104G, F-111, Harrier GR.3, Jaguar, and the Viggen against Soviet MiG-21s, -23s, -25s, -27s, SU-7s, and the new SU-15 Flagon.

Finally, saving the best for last. Thanks to CAG Hotshot , Fighters Anthology now has its first biplane in the form of the AN-2 Colt. He created a superb looking aircraft for all to enjoy. As those who have played the Yankee Station 1964 campaign know, the final mission involves shooting down an AN-2 Colt (based on a real mission).

^^^^^^^
Update: I fixed the MiG-27, changed the F-4E a little, and updated the playset zip file this morning (Dec 6th) It should all be good to go now. Let me know what you think of the Baltic Campaign 1976.

Also, when doing a fresh install of Fighters Anthology, before installing, change the year to 1998 in your computer's clock setting. Once FA is installed, including the patch, change the year back to current year. This helps with the "Timestamp" issues. (At least it does on Win ME).

Keep an eye out for new missions popping up in the new Rolling Thunder campaign folder. I have Operation Bolo in there now.
