About This File

The Airco D.H.5 was intended to be an improved version of the D.H.2, combining the power of a forward facing prop with the forward visibility of a pusher. The reverse stagger of the wings was an unusual configuration and the strange appearance of the plane may have contributed to false rumors of its bad performance. Although a slow climber, the D.H.5's strength and maneuverability made it excellent for ground attack and light bombing missions.

 

I have included two skins with decal ini's for both British and Australian markings. Both use the letter decals that come with First Eagles, which you can set in the Loadout screen. The British skin allows you to also set the squadron. (The Australians all used a white stripe on the tail instead of squadron markings.) I have included a set of serial numbers which will be applied randomly.

 

You can also choose a light bomb load in the Loadout screen.

 

Historical Notes

The serial numbers are fictious, but in the correct range for most D.H.5s.

 

Credits

My thanks to Ojcar for once again making an excellent data file for the D.H.5.

My thanks also to Nix for providing the realistic sound file for the Le Rhône engine.
