Before the First World War, airships had been used as commercial airline carriers and for reconnaissance vehicles by the Army, no one had considered using them as bombers. Designed by Count Ferdinand Von Zeppelin, the airships were built from a rigid cigar shaped metal structure of circular frames connected by longitudinal beams. This made them strong enough to be fitted with engines and to carry a useful payload. There were steering fins at the rear and gondolas suspended below for the crew and engines. More crew compartments were inside the main frame as well as spaces for cargo and bags that contained the hydrogen gas for lift.

FSX Kawasaki Ki-100-I Ko The Kawasaki Ki-100 was a fighter aircraft used by the Imperial Japanese Army in World War II. 275 Ki-100 airframes were built as Ki-61's before being modified to accept a radial engine in place of the original inline engine. The emergency measure of adapting a Ki-61-II-KAI fighter to carry a Mitsubishi radial engine resulted in one of the best interceptors used by the Army during the entire war. It combined excellent power and maneuverability and it performed better than most other IJAAF fighters. Two models. Upgrade to FSX by A.F.Scrub

FSX Rocket Plane Bachem Ba349 Natter with launch base scenery. At the end of WWII the Natter (kind of snake) was a German prototype for an inceptor, proposed to attack allied bombers. Unpropelled test flights was successfully performed but the only one manned rocket launch endet in a total loss of aircraft and pilot. Some Natters remained and they are displayed in different museums. With this addon you can perform a vertical rocket launch and your mission is to attack the B-17 bombers crossing the launch base. The scenery with three launch masts, three more Natters, an typical German medevial castle, ai-military vehicles (some are made by Lazarus Starkweather) and fife B-17 bombers runs with the use of ai-carriers2; no installation of a scenery is needed. Not tested in Acceleration. FSDS 3.5 Natter model and scenery made by Erwin Welker

Civilian Coupe Mk2. Design originated in about 1926 by Harold Boultbee, Assistant Chief Designer at Handley Page, resigning in 1928 to produce his Coupe aircraft. G-AAIL was first flown on 11 August 1929 powered by an ABC Hornet of a nominal 80 HP. Flight tests at Martlesham Heath did not fare too well, in flight handling & the forward view were criticised. Further woes were added when the undercarriage collapsed & some engine bearers broke due to vibrations from the Hornet engine.

FSX/FS2004 Spitfires_MkIX South Africa The success of the Mk IX reduced the importance of the Mk VIII. Although the first production model was completed in November 1942, it took until June 1943 for the first squadron to be equipped with the model. One reason for the delay was that it had been decided to use the Mk VIII in the Mediterranean and Far East, and so the first squadron to use it was No. 145, based on Malta. By the summer of 1943 the crisis in the Mediterranean was in the past, and the Mk VIII saw most of its service during the invasion of Italy, often in a ground attack role.
