FS2004/FSX Polikarpov I-153V2 Warbird bipe
The ultimate development of the Polikarpov fighter biplane was the powerful I-153 Chaika, with retractable landing gear, either wheels or skis folding to the rear. Coming on line in 1938 some thousands served in the Far East, Finland and on the Eastern Front.
The I-153 was an anachronism, entering service at the time when the biplane had long since been eclipsed by the monoplane fighter.
This is an updated model of the I-153 with more realistic cowling and working frontplate inlets. Finish, Russian and Spanish textures by Morton. GMAX model by A.F.Scrub.
