There were many versions of the Taube produced in the years leading up to World War I. When the war began different versions were being used in large numbers, on all fronts for recon missions. This is the Kondor Taube, which I think is representive of the "classic" Taube. It has the typical wing shape, uses wing warping for both the aileron and elevator surfaces, and has a six cylinder 100HP engine.

 

I have added a rifle for the observer, which he will aim and fire. I have made significant changes to the wires on the front to give the gunner more room to move.

 

Ojcar has created a fake machine gun for the pilot, which causes the AI plane to be more aggressive in pursuing enemy planes. I have installed that gun on this plane. Ojcar's "DummyMachineGun" data is included with this download, in case you don't already have it.

 

Some flyers wore simple crash helmets in WWI, especially in the early days. I am using a pilot with a helmet in this plane. The pilot and installation instructions are included in the download, in case you don't already have it.

 

The download includes my skinning templates, data for the guns and the German pilot with helmet.

 


Credits
Thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the Taube, and for greatly improving the gunner. Ojcar also made the data for the dummy machine gun.

 


Installation Instructions
For FE1 - Unzip the file. Move the folder named "Taube" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder.

 

For FE2 - Unzip the file. Move the folder named "Taube" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "Taube". Move the folder named "D" from your Aircraft/Taube folder into the Decals/Taube folder you just made.

 

 

You may not need to install the dummy machine gun, it has been used on other planes and you may already have it. If you don't already have it, I have included the gun and instructions for installing in a separate folder included in this download.

 

You may not need to install the infantry, it has been used on ground units and you may already have it. If you don't already have it, I have included the gun and instructions for installing in a separate folder included in this download.

 

You may not need to install the pilot with helmet, it has been available for download for some time and you may already have it. If you don't already have it, I have included the pilot and instructions for installing in a separate folder included in this download.

Thank you so much ! this is the one that completes my collection, and as always it is  to the highest standard.

once again many thanks.  

Thanks for this really beautiful aircraft. It's fun just to fly with the observer removed. Makes a great target too!

Thank you - very nice job - congrats !

I've installed the guns correctly in Gundata.ini with gun editor but when I fly the rifleman does not shoot at nearby enemy planes. Help please?

Big Al, I made the gunner so he only shoots over the prop, you need to be under and behind your enemy before the gunner shoots. Remember the Taube is not a fighter, the gunner is just there to pose a threat more than to score a victory.

 

In the Forum, VonS has posted revisions to the data.ini to make the gunner more aggressive (post #6) - which I think may help you:
