This upload is a complete one and intends to representate a French MB.151 at 1939. They were used as training fighters but were used in anger at the German attack. This upload contains a modified Oldwheat MB.152 texture file. It was painted using a Wing Pallete image. I rename texture folder, the model folder, airfile, DP and air.cfg to avoid conflict with the Greek version. I also included a panel that intends to be more representative of the one used by MB.151 to MB.155 fighters. In Brazil we say that there are three way of doing: the right, the wrong and the French way, everytime a criative and unique approach, but, sometimes, not a pratical one. Believe it or not, almost all French single engined fighters, with the notable exception of Dewoitine D.520, used NO artificial horizon. They used a complex instrument that measures speed, angle of attack, turn indicator and G Forces! It was installed at the panel centre. But they NEVER flew without a precision altimeter that mesures each meter high. They used it to very low attack aproach (sometimes only 10 meters, around 30ft) and to land. Unhappily, to be completely truthfull, we need a new engine control. To accelerate, they push the throttle instead of pull it (the only country that used it). The French Hawk 75 were made within this requirement. This cause a lot of incidents when Free French and ex-Vichy pilots converted to American, British and Soviet planes. Good flights Pepe

This is the British conversion of the DB-7/Boston to duty as a nightfighter they dubbed the Havoc. This name soon stuck to the entire US line of A-20s. She carried an eight-MG forward-firing armament in the nose, and the Mk IV radar. The standard medium bomber versions continued to be known as the Boston, and came in three marks. The skin is by Sopwith C and is from RAF 23 Sqdrn Nightfighter, the rest is by myself. To install simply paste the TR_Havoc folder into your CFS2 Aircraft folder. Enjoy!

These are textures for the B24 Guy's Stock Avenger Overhaul found here: They represent the TBM-1c Avenger, "Charlie 88", flown by Lt. T.B. Coughtie and his crew, PO2 J. Simokatis and PO2 E.W. Yates of Composite Squadron VC-20, stationed aboard the USS Kadashan Bay, CVE-76. This unit flew against the Japanese fleet at Leyte Gulf attacking the Yamato and Nagato. The aircraft goes well with Collin's new CVE-76 which can be dowloaded here: http://www.simviation.com/lair/cfs2shipyard.htm The base texture is from a revamp of the stock one done a while back. Unfortunatly I can't remember who. I wish to thank whomever for pushing me in the right direction. I removed most of the weathering, did some recoloring and added the markings. Installation is straightforward and as usual all legalities apply. Have fun!

I made this aircraft model in 2006. Nobody was interested in it then, not sure anyone will be now. I took the old model, put in the VC from my Caproni F.5 and altered the Airfile from the Caproni to match the specs of the Fiat. I tricked out some animations and altered some textures from Morton to fit this model. Credits: Model by William Dickens Airfile by Pedro Paulo Rezende, altered by W.

The Caproni-Vizzola F.5 was an Italian fighter aircraft built by Caproni. It was a single-seat low-wing cantilever monoplane with retractable landing gear. 14 pre-production F.5s were ordered. No production models were built but the completed F.5s were used operationally as night and day fighters in defense of Rome.
