  1. Spanish Civil War, Heinkel He.51

    The Heinkel He.51 was introduced in 1935. It was a German, one man biplane with a V-12, 750 hp engine. It was developed as a fighter and carried two machine guns mounted in the fuselage. The He.51 began serving in the Spanish Civil War in 1936, used by the Nationalists, and was used by both Spanish and German (Legion Condor) squadrons.  The He.51 was a superior plane at first, but was soon outclassed by newer Soviet planes. It was then used as a ground attack plane and served in that role until the end of the war. 
    My Heinkel He.51 includes a basic camo skin, decals, a fully functional cockpit, fuel tank, and a 10lb bomb. Instructions for installing the fuel tank and bomb are included in a separate file. I have included my skinning templates with the download.

    Thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the Heinkel He.51, and for providing resources and advice, especially for the weapons.
    Ojcar has found the data for a more accurate machine gun, we don't know where it came from, but I am including the data for the 7.9mm_MG17 machine gun for your use. Instructions for installing the gun are included in a separate file.
    Ojcar has also taught me how to add controls to jettison the fuel tank (along with other features, like landing gear, flaps, and wheel brakes.) I am including instructions for adding controls to First Eagles in a separate file.

    Installation Instructions
    For FE1 - Unzip the file. Move the folder named "HeinkelHe51" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. You will also need to install the bomb, machine gun, and fuel tank, instructions for installing them are included as a separate file.

    For FE2 - Unzip the file. Move the folder named "HeinkelHe51" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "HeinkelHe51". Move the folder named "D" from your Aircraft/HeinkelHe51 folder into the Decals/HeinkelHe51 folder you just made. 
    You will also need to install the bomb, machine gun, and fuel tank, instructions for installing them are included as a separate file.

  2. Spanish Civil War, Spanish DH.9 - 2 Pack

    After World War I, Spain purchased several surplus Airco DH.9's from Britain. In the 1920's a Spanish version was built, under license, by the Hispano-Suiza Company. The Spanish DH.9 was fitted with a 300hp Hispano-Suiza 8 cylinder engine. About 500 were produced during the 20's and at least 25 were still in service when the civil war started in 1936. The Hispano-Suiza DH.9 was used by both sides during the war and some remained in service until the end of the war in 1939.
    I have made two versions, one for each side, with appropriate skins, decals, and loadouts. My skinning templates are included. 
    Each version has two bomb loadouts, one with eight 25kg bombs mounted under the wings, and one with two 100kg bombs carried under the fuselage. One of the bombs was included with the Polikarpov I-15. Two of them were included in Geezer's 1930's bomb pack. I have included all the necessary bombs with this download, but you may not need to install all of them. I have included instructions for installing the bombs in a separate text file.

    Thanks to Ojcar for making the original data file for the DH.9. I have made slight modifications for the Spanish Civil War versions.
    Thanks to Geezer for making the two Italian bombs as part of his 1930's Bomb Pack for First Eagles. I have included them in this download in case you don't already have them.

    Installation Instructions

    You will need to install some or all of the bombs. See the Instructions For Installing Bombs, included with this download.
    For FE2 - Unzip the file. Move the folders named "NatDH9" and "RepDH9" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create two new folders named "NatDH9" and "RepDH9".

  3. Spanish Civil War, Breguet XIX - 2 pack

    The Breguet XIX was developed in 1924 as a light bomber and reconnaissance plane. It was used by many nations throughout the 20's and early 30's. Several variations were produced, with different engines, gun configurations, and fuselage designs. Spain bought several Breguet XIXs and eventually began producing them in their CASA (Construcciones Aeronáuticas SA) plants. By the early 1930s the Breguet XIX was obsolete and beginning to be replaced. When the Spanish Civil War began, there were almost 100 still in service and they were used by both sides until better planes became available.
     
    I have made the Breguet XIX B2 bomber variant as produced by CASA. It has a Vickers machine gun mounted in the fuselage, and two Lewis guns mounted on a scarff ring. It has a Lorraine-Dietrich 12 cylinder engine and can carry a small bomb load.
     
    I have made two versions, one for each side, with appropriate skins, decals, and loadouts. My skinning templates are included.
     
    The bomb loadouts for the Nationalist version use the German 50kg bomb (Ge50kg) from Geezer's 1930s Bomb Pack, available in the Combat Ace, First Eagles Golden Era Download section.

  4. CR42 (1940)

    Updated files to reflect user inputs - see change log. The SAVE SELECTION AS CHANNEL button in my copy of Photoshop has stopped working, so I cannot fix the bullet holes alpha channel problem. I have placed the _Holes files in the Graphics Pack. If you can make your own .tga files with alpha channel, just drop the resulting four .tga files into the CR42_1 folder.
     
    **************************************************************************************************************************************************************
     
    The CR42 was Italy's most numerous fighter in 1940, and fought over North and East Africa, plus briefly in the Battle of Britain. Export versions operated in the Battle of France (Belgium) and on the Eastern Front (Hungary). Immensely strong, its license-built Pratt & Whitney engine drove a license-built Hamilton-Standard constant speed propeller, giving the CR42 a performance edge over Allied biplanes in early WW2.
     
    This is the first of many 1930s aircraft intended for FE/FE2. The planned selection of aircraft will cover the early desert war in North Africa and also the Spanish Civil War. Whenever appropriate, an SF2 version will also be developed for Baffmeister's BoB mod.
     
    A number of modders have assisted me in developing this aircraft, particularly Stephen1918. Additional thanks to Wrench, Baffmeister, Sully, gambit168, Nixou, and Viper63a. I've probably forgotten someone - if so, my apologies.
     
    Special thanks to professional illustrator Jim Laurier for use of his instrument art for the cockpit.
     
    The only known problem is the extended take off run - once in the air, no other problems have been observed. When Baffmeister returns in the autumn, he said he will tweak the FM a bit more to his satisfaction.
     
    The current FM lists the CR42 as a German aircraft so it will drop into most First Eagles' mods. You can change the nationality by opening the CR42_DATA.ini and editing the first two lines of the Mission Data listings.
     
    THIS MODEL IS ONLY TO BE DISTRIBUTED AS FREEWARE AND IN NO OTHER CIRCUMSTANCE SHALL IT BE USED, EVEN IN PART, OF ANYTHING THAT IS PAYWARE, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE COMBAT ACE MODDERS AGREEMENT.
