FS2004/FSX Blackburn Skua. The Blackburn Skua was a British-built Royal Naval dive bomber and fighter. The first prototype flew in 1937 fitted with a Bristol Mercury radial engine. It first enered service in 1938 - by then all subsequent production of 190 were fitted wth the Bristol Perseus engine. Armament conisted of four wing mounted machine guns and one rearward facing m/c gun on a flexible mount in the rear cockpit. Provision was made for the fitting of a 500 lb bomb on a carriage swinging forward when required. Instead, up to 8 x 20 lb or 4 x 40 lb bombs could be carried on under-wing racks. Although reasonably sucessful initially, it soon proved an easy target to later fighters and so were withdrawn from front-line service in 1941. They were then used as advanced trainers and target tugs until struck off in 1945. Modelled by Dave Molyneaux.

FSX/FS2004 Avia S-199 The Avia S-199 is a propeller-driven fighter aircraft built after World War II, notable as the first fighter obtained by the Israeli Air Force, and used during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. Constructed in Czechoslovakia, with parts and plans left over from Luftwaffe aircraft production, the aircraft had numerous problems and was generally unpopular with its pilots. Czechoslovak pilots nicknamed it Mezek ("Mule"), while in Israel it was officially known as the Sakeen ("knife" in Hebrew). In practice, the aircraft was more often called Messerschmitt or Messer (which also means "knife", in German and Yiddish). GMAX mdl by A.F.Scrub.

FS2004/FSX Albatross DIII Development of the prototype D.III started in late July or early August 1916. Following the successful Albatros D.I and D.II series, the D.III utilized the same semi-monocoque, plywood-skinned fuselage. but adopted a sesquiplane wing arrangement broadly similar to the French Nieuport 11. The upper wingspan was extended, while the lower wing was redesigned with reduced chord and a single main spar. "V" shaped interplane struts replaced the previous parallel struts.

FS2004/FSX Albatross D.Va. The Albatross D.V. entered service in May 1917 and structural failures of the lower wing immediately occurred. The D.V's sesquiplane wing layout was even more vulnerable than that of the D III. The outboard sections of the D.V upper wing also suffered failures, requiring additional wire bracing and the fuselage sometimes cracked during rough landings. Owing to these problems, the D.V offered very little improvement in performance to the Albatross D III. GMAX mdl by A.F.Scrub

FS2004/FSX Phonix D.I WW1 fighter. The Phönix D. I biplane was intended as a replacement for the Hansa-Brandenburg D. I. Although it was produced in smaller numbers (120 D. I, 45 D. II, and 48 D. IIa fighters) than the Aviatik D. I and did not begin entering service until October 1917, the Phönix D-series fighters are generally considered the best fighters designed and produced in Austria-Hungary. GMAX mdl by A.F.Scrub.
