  1. Anatra D - "Field Mod"

    The Anatra D was a predecessor to the Anatra DS. The stock plane was powered by a Gnome rotary engine and armed with a single machine gun for the observer.
     
    I have made a "field mod" version with a fuselage mounted machine gun for the pilot. Anades with additional machine guns are known to have existed, but I haven't found any photos of them. I added the gun for the pilot in what seemed to be a logical position.
     
    The Anatra D was used mostly for reconnaissance, but also as a fighter and light bomber. After overcoming some initial design problems, it entered service in May, 1916 and was produced in relatively large numbers. Many of them survived the war and were used in the fighting in Eastern Europe after the end of World War I.
     
    I have included three skins, two linen and a grey paint. A full set of number decals and a loadout for light bombs are included. I have also included my skinning templates for those who wish to make their own skins.
     

    Credits:
    My thanks to Ojcar for making the original data.ini for this plane. I have modified Ojcar's file to include the additional gun.

  2. Farman HF.20 unarmed

    The Farman HF.20 was developed in 1913 and was being used by most of the air forces in Europe by the time World War I began. It was designed for reconnaissance and had very stable flight characteristics, but it didn't have a very powerful engine and wasn't suitable for fighter or bomber missions, although some pilots made the attempt. The Farman F.20 was withdrawn from front line service as more nimble aircraft became available.
     
    This version does not have a machine gun and places the observer behind the pilot.It can carry a small bomb load, with the bombs being released over the side. This install will not replace the original Farman HF.20, so you can fly both of them in First Eagles.
     
    My skins for Belgian, French, and Russian versions will work for both versions of the HF.20. I have included all three in this download. The Russian version uses the decal.ini posted by Crawford in the forums. Decals and my skinning templates are included in the download.
     
    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 Farman HF.20 has a wider wingspan than First Eagles expects so you should install my "Airfields for Large Planes" available in the Combat Ace downloads area. Otherwise, when starting on the runway, your wings may be touching the wings of the planes next to you. This will cause an immediate collision and you or other planes in your flight may lose their wingtips as soon as the game starts.

  5. Farman F.30

    Russia was the only country that used the French designed Farman F.30. While no other allies adopted it, the F.30 was the primary plane of the Imperial Russian Air Service and the Russians built about 400 of them at the Dux factory near Moscow beginning in 1915. It was used throughout WWI and was used by both sides during the Russian Civil Wars.
     
    The Farman F.30 was powered my a Salmson 150hp water-cooled engine, had a single machine gun for the observer, and was said to be able to maneuver as well as the Eindeckers it faced. It was a general purpose plane, used originally as a fighter, and later for recon, artillery spotting, and light bomber missions.
     
    My plane includes a loadout for a light bomb load. Decals and my skinning templates are included in the download.
     
    I have included ojcar's "DummyMachineGun" data, Peter01's Lewis Machine Gun data in the download.

  6. Farman F.40

    The Farman F.40 was a joint design by the two Farman Brothers, Maurice and Henri, combining features of the MF.11 and HF.22. Like the other Farman designs, placing the engine in the rear gave the gunner an open field of fire. The F.40 was used for reconnaissance and as a light bomber and was widely used by most of the Entente forces. The long wingspan gave stability, but made it slow to maneuver. French squadrons began replacing it in 1916.
     
    My plane includes loadouts for a light bomb load and for Le Prieur rockets. I have included three skins, French, Belgian, and Russian. Decals and my skinning templates are included in the download.
     
    I have included ojcar's "DummyMachineGun" data, Peter01's Lewis Machine Gun data and P10ppy's Le Prieur rockets with this download.
     
    Warning
    The Farman F.40 has a wider wingspan than First Eagles expects so if you start on the runway, your wings will be touching the wings of the planes next to you. This will cause an immediate collision and you or other planes in your flight may lose their wingtips as soon as the game starts. Best to start in the air, or modify the airfield.ini in the terrain folder to space out the planes on the runway.

  7. Lebed 12

    The Lebed 12 was a Russian general purpose plane introduced in early 1917. It saw service through the remainder of the war and was used extensively by both sides in the civil wars. It was the most highly produced Russian designed aircraft of World War I and equipped four divisions as well as several training schools. The Lebed 12 was armed with a single Colt-Browning machine gun and could carry a small bomb load.
     
    My version has two skins. I have included my skinning templates, decals for the Lebed version insignia for the tail and fuselage, and Peter01's data for the Colt-Browning machine gun.

  9. Final Martinsyde G.100

    This is the final update of the Martinsyde G.100, thanks to Stephen1918 who tweaked the files. The bomb racks now only show when the plane is carrying bombs, the prop spins, sample decals have been added for anyone who wants to make his own markings, and revised installation instructions have been added - all due to Stephen1918's efforts. Thanks, Steve.
     
    I mistakenly attached the files for the G.102 to this upload - when released by CA, it will now have the correct G.100 files.

  10. RAF BE12a

    The BE12a was a single seat version of the BE2e introduced in 1917. It was intended to be an improvement over the BE12, but the wing configuration did not improve maneuverability very much and it was only produced in small numbers. Like the BE12, it carried a synchronized Vickers gun mounted on the side of the fuselage and could carry up to 230 pounds of bombs. The BE12a was used briefly on the Western Front but saw much of its service in Palestine.
     
    My BE12a has three loadouts for light, medium, amd heavy bombs. I have included a green paint (PC10) skin and a full set of number decals. My skinning templates are included in the download.

  11. RAF BE12

    The BE12 was a single seat version of the BE2c introduced in 1916. It had the wings of the BE2c, but had a larger, 12 cylinder (RAF4a) engine. There was a synchronized Vickers gun mounted on the side of the fuselage and it could carry up to 230 pounds of bombs. The more powerful engine made the BE12 a faster plane, but it didn't have the maneuverability required for a fighter. The BE12 was used mostly for recon and light bombing missions.

  12. RAF BE2e

    The BE2e was an improved variant of the BE2c introduced in 1916. It had a longer upper wing and a shorter lower wing with a single set of struts. It also had a slightly smaller horizontal tail. The new configuration improved the plane's maneuverability, but did little to improve its overall performance. I have included a light bomb load, but the plane's rate of climb suffers somewhat when carrying bombs.
     
    I have included two skins, a green paint (PC10), and a brown paint (PC12). A full set of number decals and my skinning templates are included in the download.
     
    The gunner in the BE2e sat in front of the pilot and either had multiple guns, or was able to move the gun between multiple mounts. The game engine does not allow this, so I set up the data file to limit the gunner's aim to the upper rear of the plane. However, I provided alternate lines in the FM which will allow you to widen the gunner's aim, but that makes the gun pass through the struts, and sometimes shoot through the wing.
     
    Instructions for changing the gunner's range of motion are included in the download.

    Thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the BE2e and for testing and helping with details of the model.

  13. Moska MB bis

    The Moska MB bis was a Russian single wing fighter, first deployed in 1916 and produced throughout the rest of World War I. It did not have a synchronized gun and the stock plane had the gun mounted at an angle to fire over the prop. I have created a "field modded" version with a horizontal gun and with deflector plates on the prop. Both versions use the same skins.
     
    I have included my skinning templates with the download. The planes uses the stock decals, so there is no "D" folder with this plane.
     
    One of the distinctive features of the Moska MB was that its wings could be folded for shipping and transport. I have included a static model, with folded wings, that can be used by modders in their terrains. The static version has a destroyed version and includes the Types.ini data.

  14. Caudron G.4

    The Caudron G.4 was a twin engine French bomber. It was introduced late in 1915, it used wing warping for banking and had four rudders. The plane was widely used, and saw service on most of the fronts. After 1916, it was used mostly for night bombing and reconnaissance.
     
    I have included four skins, a French linen, an Italian linen, a Russian grey, and a British brown. I have included some personal markings, but the serial number is so hard to see on this plane, that I only made one. My skinning templates are included in the download.
     
    There are three bomb loadouts, including one internal, and two external bomb loads. I had to make a special pilot, because the stock FE pilot would not fit in the Caudron cockpit. The new pilot is included in the download.
     
    Historical Note
    All of the examples I found had linen skins, except for some Russian grey or light blue planes. I have included a British brown skin because it seemed likely that other colors than plane linen were used, although I found no evidence of it.

  15. RAF BE2c

    Several variations of the BE2 were produced by the Royal Aircraft Factory from 1912 until the end of World War 1. The BE2c was introduced in 1914 and was produced in large numbers. It was designed to be a very stable plane, which was desirable in a reconnaissance plane, but not very effective for a fighter. During its service, the BE2c was used mostly for recon missions, but it sometimes served as a fighter and as a light bomber.
     
    I have included two skins, a stock linen, and a brown paint. A full set of number decals are included for each skin. My skinning templates are included in the download.

  16. Hanriot HD.2

    The Hanriot HD.2 was a French, single seat float plane version of the Hanriot HD.1. It had a larger tail, shorter wings, and mounted 2 Vickers machine guns. It was used by the French as an interceptor, defending seaplane bases, and as an escort for reconnaissance planes.
     
    Since it's a float plane, the Hanriot HD.2 works best in the North Sea terrain, or in Flanders, Gibraltar or other terrain that has a lot of water. The plane will actually take off and land from a conventional airfield, but it looks strange to see the floats going under the ground.
     
    I have included two skins, a generic linen skin and a 4 color camo skin. The camo skin may be fictitious and uses the French 4 color camo pattern, but with blue and grey colors instead of greens and browns. I have included a set of decals. My skinning templates are included with the download.

  17. Russian Morane H

    Just a little rework of the previously uploaded MS.H in Russian markings, I have just tweaked the skins a little, and added decals instead of the pre printed insignia, just a personal preference.
    I have included the sound files, and the decals needed for this aircraft.The only thing I would like to improve is the addition of a windscreen, as per the Pfalz EI , but that is beyond my abilities.
     
    The only little Glitch I have encountered is the decal seems to show slightly on the wing tip, cant seem to solve that problem, but it isnt that bad anyhow. I tried to place the wing decals further inboard, but for some reason the Starboard wing doesnt accept this, but I dont think it looks too shabby.
     
    just follow all the usual malarkey for installing to FE, or indeed just use the skins if you already have the A/C installed.
     
    As I have said, this is just a tweak of the original skin, so all thanks to everyone who went before me in designing the A/C and for giving me the idea to tweak it !!!

  18. DH4 USAS "Liberty"

    In addition to the British built version, the DH4 was also produced by American manufacturers and was equipped with a Liberty 12 cylinder engine. Although slightly less powerful than the British version, The DH4 Liberty was popular with its crews and was produced in large numbers. After the war, it became the standard general purpose plane for the US Air Service.
     
    This upload features the US version, with a new FM by Ojcar. The Liberty engine was slightly heavier than the British version and performance was reduced. To compensate, American DH4s carried a slighty lighter bomb load than the British built planes.
     
    I have included a new skin using the number decals that come with First Eagles (which you can set in the loadout screen) and a set of serial numbers which will be applied randomly. There are also loadouts for light, medium, and heavy bomb loads.
     
    The skins are rather generic, I have included my skinning templates for those who wish to make better skins.
     
     
    Credits
    My thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the DH4 Liberty.
    My thanks also to Sinbad for providing the motivation and a great deal of resource information for this plane.
     
     
    Installation Instructions

  19. Airco DH4 - 2 pack

    Although best known in its role as a bomber, the Airco DH4 was intended to be a general purpose airplane and was used for recon and ground support as well. Early versions were powered by a 250hp Eagle engine. Later versions were powered with a 375hp Eagle engine, which made them very effective bombers. The biggest problem with the DH4 was the gas tank placed between the pilot and gunner, which made communication between the two almost impossible.
     
    I have uploaded two versions of the DH4 - Ojcar has created two FMs for the plane, one with the early 250hp engine, and one with the later 375hp engine.
     
    Both planes have two skins, a brown and an olive color. Both use the letter decals that come with First Eagles (which you can set in the loadout screen) and a set of serial numbers which will be applied randomly. There are also loadouts for light, medium, and heavy bomb loads. The skins, decals, and loadouts are interchangeable for the two planes.
     
    The skins are rather generic, I have included my skinning templates for those who wish to make better skins.

    My thanks to Ojcar for once again making two excellent data files for the DH4.
    My thanks also to Sinbad for providing a great deal of resource information for this plane.
     
     
    Installation Instructions
    The two versions can be installed separately or both together.

  20. Airco DH9a "Ninak"

    The Airco DH9a, called the "Ninak" ("nine a") was introduced in June 1918 to replace the underpowered DH9. The 400hp Liberty engine required changes to the front of the fuselage, otherwise the plane was pretty much the same as the DH9. Although it was introduced late in the war, the DH9a did see service during the war, and was used extensively afterwards.
     
    I have included two skins, a brown and an olive color. Both use the letter decals that come with First Eagles (which you can set in the loadout screen) and I have included a set of serial numbers which will be applied randomly.

  21. Airco DH9

    The Airco DH9 was introduced early in 1918 as an intended replacement for the DH4. The pilot was seated closer to the gunner in the DH9 and an internal bomb compartment was provided. However, because of the DH9's low performance and unreliable engine, the DH4 remained the better bomber until the DH9a was introduced a few months later. Nevertheless, the DH9 did operate with better success on the Eastern and Palestinian fronts where it faced fewer enemy fighters.
     
    I have included two skins, a brown and an olive color. Both use the letter decals that come with First Eagles (which you can set in the loadout screen) and I have included a set of serial numbers which will be applied randomly. There are also loadouts for light, medium, and heavy bomb loads.

  22. Vickers FB5 "Gunbus"

    The Vickers FB5 was the first British plane designed specifically as a fighter. It was nicknamed the "Gunbus" because the pusher style aircraft had a factory installed machine gun mounted in the front, giving the gunner a wide angle of fire.
     
    Although underpowered for its size, the large tail surfaces made it quite maneuverable. The Gunbus was an effective fighter for its time and was used to create the first fighter squadron, the RFC No. 11 Squadron. The Vickers FB5 was quickly outclassed and replaced by other fighters but it made a lasting impression on pilots.
     
    I have included two skins with decal ini's for both the Standard Linen used by Britain and France, as well as an early British skin with flags instead of roundels. I have also included a set of serial numbers which will be applied randomly. I have included my skinning templates for the plane and the cockpit.
     
    Historical Notes
    The serial numbers are fictitious, but in the correct range for most FB5s.
    Details of the instrument panel are mostly conjecture.
    Several kinds of gun mounts were used on the Gunbus, most of them required considerable upper body motion for the gunner. In First Eagles, it is not possible to animate the gunner, so my gun mount is fictitious, but at least allows the gunner some freedom of movement.
     
    Credits
    My thanks to Ojcar for once again making an excellent data file for the Vickers Gunbus.
    My thanks to Nix for providing the sound for the Gnome engine
     
    Version 2 - Ojcar has created a new FM which improves the fighting performance of the AI. A fake machine gun has been added which causes the pilot of AI planes to be more active in pursuing enemy aircraft. Installation instructions for the new gun are in a separate file.
     
     
    Installation Instructions
    For FE1 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "VickersFB5" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder. You also need to move the sound file "gnome80m4.wav" into your FirstEagles/Sounds folder.
     
    For FE2 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "VickersFB5" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "VickersFB5". Move the folder named "D" from the Airplanes/VickersFB5 folder into the Decals/VickersFB5 folder you just made. You also need to move the sound file "gnome80m4.wav" into your FirstEagles/Sounds folder.
     
    To install the fake machine gun, follow the instructions in the file named "InstructionsForInstallingGuns".

  23. Voisin Type V with 37mm cannon

    The Voisin Type V was a slightly improved version of the Voisin III, with minor changes to the 150hp Salmson engine, a more streamlined nacelle, and staggered wings. It was first used in 1915, but was not a significant improvement over the Voisin III and served alongside it rather than replacing it. Some Type Vs were equipped with a a 37mm Hotchkiss cannon mounted in the nose and were successfully used for ground attack missions.
     
    In my model, the 37mm cannon is rigged as an internal gun, so the pilot can fire it. The gunner would normally sit or stand directly behind the cannon, but I have placed him to the side so you can get a clear view of your target. As a result, some of the cockpit details have been altered, but are still reasonable.
     
    Ojcar has created the data file for the plane, and spent some time tweaking the gun data to get it to perform more realistically. (You will have to reload between shots.)
     
    I have included three skinning options for the plane, identical except for the decals. The Italian Linen uses the Italian insignia with red and green underwing panels. The Russian Linen uses the Russian insignia and includes stripes on the tail planes. The Standard Linen can be used for all the other Entente powers. This plane uses the national markings that come with First Eagles, so you can easily change nationalities (in the Standard Linen skin only.) I have included all my skinning templates. This is slightly different from the Voisin III and the skins are not interchangeable.
     
    I have also included decals for serial numbers which will be applied randomly.
     
     
    Historical Notes:
    The serial numbers are fictious, but more or less in the correct range for the Voisin Type V.
     
    The Russians used different national markings on the tail planes, If you use my Russian skin, you will have white, blue, and red stripes on the tail planes. If you use the Standard skin for the Russians, you will get roundels on the tail planes.
     
    Details of the gunner and gunner's cockpit have been altered to make it possible for the pilot to fire the gun.
     
     
    Credits:
    My thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for this plane, and for massaging the data for the gun to get a more realistic effect.
     
     
    Installation instructions:
    For FE1: Unzip the file and move the folder named "Voisin5" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder.
     
    For FE2: Unzip the file and move the folder named "Voisin5" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "Voisin5". Move the folder named "D" from the Airplanes/Voisin5 folder into the Decals/Voisin5 folder you just made.
     
     
     
    A note about Effects -
    I have used the 37mm Hotchkiss 1885 cannon in my plane. In First Eagles, this is usually used as a ground object and the gun fire animation is quite large. If you have a slow computer, you may not be able to see the fire effect unless you have shadows turned off.
     
    If you have downloaded p10ppy's SPAD XII, then you already have a nice fire effect for an aircraft mounted cannon (with smoke blowing back over the cockpit). The effect is in a file named "37mmSPAD.ini" in your Effects folder and is named "37mmFireEffectEnH". You can edit the GunData.ini for the 37MM_HOTCHKISS_1885 to use the better effect by changing the effect name to read:
     
    GunFireEffect=37mmFireEffectEnH

  25. Anatra DS "Anasal"

    The Anatra DS was a two seat Russian plane powered by a Salmson 9 cylinder, water cooled, rotary engine. The plane was therefore called the "Anasal", short for "Anatra Salmson". When the Ukrainian city of Odessa was occupied by Austria-Hungary early in 1918, the Anatra factory was found intact and production continued as the "Anatra C.I". Many of the first Austrian versions had the Austrian cross painted over the Russian insignia.
     
    The Anatra was used mostly for reconnaissance, but also as a fighter and light bomber. Many of them survived the war and were used in the fighting in Eastern Europe after the end of World War I.
     
    In version 2 - I have included a loadout for a light bomb load and three skinning options - A generic Russian skin, and skins for two Russian squadrons - the 19th and the 4th squadrons with decals for the squadron tail markings. I have included my skinning templates for those who want make their own skins.
     
    In version 3 - I improved the details around the nose, completely reskinned the plane and cockpit, and corrected several problems with node names in the data file. New templates are included in the version 3 download.
     

    Historical Notes:
    I found several sources which said that Anatras carried a machine gun mounted on the fuselage for the pilot. I couldn't find any details of the mounting, so I guessed where it might be located.
     
    Credits:
    My thanks to Ojcar once again for making the excellent data.ini file for this plane.
     

    Installation instructions:
    For FE1: Unzip the file and move the folder named "AnatraDS" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder.
     
    For FE2: Unzip the file and move the folder named "AnatraDS" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "AnatraDS". Move the folder named "D" from the Airplanes/AnatraDS folder into the Decals/AnatraDS folder you just made.
