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.
The serial numbers are fictious, but in the correct range for most D.H.5s.
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.
For FE1 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "AircoDH5" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder. You also need to move the sound file "rhone110bn4nC" into the FirstEagles/Sounds folder.
For FE2 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "AircoDH5" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "AircoDH5". Move the folder named "D" from the Airplanes/AircoDH5 folder into the Decals/AircoDH5 folder you just made. You also need to move the sound file "rhone110bn4nC" into the FirstEagles/Sounds folder.
