Westland Lysander. With its distinctive high-aspect ratio, high-mounted wing, the Lysander, or "Lizzie", was one of the most capable liaison planes of WWII. The type was fitted with a very powerful engine for its size, and had a unique, high-lift wing of long span which was equipped with automatic leading edge slats and trailing edge flaps. The large wing, powerful engine, and light weight allowed takeoff and landing distances of 300 feet for a normal load, with a stalling speed of just 56 mph. These saw service in a variety of roles, from general liaison to clandestine "spy drops" to target towing and air-sea rescue. In the Mk.IIIA, a large external belly tank of 180 gallons provided exceptional range for dropping off and picking up covert operatives well beyond enemy lines. First flown in 1936, a total of 1,652 of the type were built before production ended.

FS2004 Martin Mars Waterbomber On 23 August 1938 the US Navy ordered from Martin a single prototype of the Martin 170 design for a patrol bomber of flying-boat configuration. Designated XPB2M-1, it was the world's largest flying-boat when flown for the first time on 3 July 1942.Only six more of the type were ordered at the end of WWII. These served as transports until 1956, when they were retired. In 1959, the remaining four were purchased for conversion to firebombers. Two remain flying to this day, the Philippine Mars and the second Hawaii Mars.Alphasim freeware AI mdl made flyable in FS2004.Complete 2D panel and outward look but no VC. Water dropping effect added. Conversion by A.F.Scrub.

FS2004/2002/CFS2 Bloch MB131C The Bloch 131 was developed from the Bloch 130.01 Guynemer prototype. It flew in July 1934 and was completely redesigned,with a glazed nose and tall single fin and rudder, and powered by two 708kW Gnome-Rhone 14N radial engines. A retractable undercarriage was fitted. Armament comprised 7.5mm machine-guns in nose, dorsal turret and ventral positions. One hundred and thirty-nine production Bloch 131 were built for the Armee de l'Air in the RB4 category as four-crew machines intended for bombing and reconnaissance. The first six aircraft were delivered by June 1938, the rest by September 1939. Most went to Reconnaissance Groupes, suffering heavy losses at the beginning of the 'Phoney War' period. From October 1939 the type was used only for occasional night missions and for training. The max bomb load in various combinations was 800kg. Following France's capitulation, the Vichy regime used surviving Bloch 131s for target-towing. This is Alain Breton old mdl reworked by A.F.Scrub for CFS2/FS8/FS9 flightsims.
