About This File
In addition to the British built version, the DH4 was also produced by American manufacturers and was equipped with a Liberty 12 cylinder engine. Although slightly less powerful than the British version, The DH4 Liberty was popular with its crews and was produced in large numbers. After the war, it became the standard general purpose plane for the US Air Service.
This upload features the US version, with a new FM by Ojcar. The Liberty engine was slightly heavier than the British version and performance was reduced. To compensate, American DH4s carried a slighty lighter bomb load than the British built planes.
I have included a new skin using the number decals that come with First Eagles (which you can set in the loadout screen) and 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 making the data file for the DH4 Liberty.
My thanks also to Sinbad for providing the motivation and a great deal of resource information for this plane.
For FE1 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "DH4_Liberty" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder.
For FE2 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "DH4_Liberty" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "DH4_Liberty". Move the folder named "D" from the Airplanes/DH4_Liberty folder into the Decals/DH4_Liberty folder you just made.
