About This File
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.
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 an excellent data file for the DH9.
My thanks also to Sinbad for providing a great deal of resource information for this plane.
For FE1 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "AircoDH9" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder.
For FE2 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "AircoDH9" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "AircoDH9". Move the folder named "D" from the Airplanes/AircoDH9 folder into the Decals/AircoDH9 folder you just made.
April 5, 2012 - Replaced data file with new version to fix problem with take offs and landings and to make the plane fly better.
