Avia S-199 for SFP1,WOX oct.08 patch by ID(io)T team
Historical note-(from Wikipedia)
Avia Company ,a branch of the enormous Škoda Works in Czechoslovakia built numerous Messhershmitt Bf-109G’s during the WW2 for the German Luftwaffe. After the war the major part of the construction line remained intact, and soon the Czechoslovakian Air Force put an order for Avia S-99, an exact copy of Bf-109G.
Under unknown conditions, the company run out of Daimler-Benz DB 605 engines andi it was decided to use an alternative type.Making an unfortuned -for many-decision ,the specialists managed to put the the Junkers Jumo 211 and the propeller of he-111 bomber to the existing Me-109 G airframe.This engine used by the Henkel He-111 bomber was heavier, used heavier propeller that caused torque and the final result was an aircraft with control difficulties .the new variant was named after Avia S-199 and an order for a new branch was made very soon .
Despite the aircraft's numerous problems and unpopularity with its pilots, it achieved fame as the first fighter obtained by the Israeli Air Force, for use during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. 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).
Around 550 S-199s were built, including a number of conversion trainers designated CS-199 (armed) and C-210 (unarmed), 20 were purchased by Israel. The first flight took place in March 1947, and production ended in 1949. The last examples were withdrawn from Czechoslovak service (with their National Security Guard) in 1957.

1)this plane is meant to be a freeware for the beginning, don’t buy it from nowhere J
2)although the major part of these planes were used by the Czechoslovakian Air force, we didn’t have time to complete a skin L…please, contribute!!!!!!!
3)putting datas to make it fly more close to the real one, we discovered why it was named “mule”…..so, expect something more easy to handle. Of course, for the case that everybody knows, prop planes doesn’t work properly under “hard”mode…but even in medium mode, it goes great!
