=-=-=-=-= Nieuport.28 skin and data pack for the 1rst Pursuit Group =-=-=-=-=

 

 

All Skin work and all decal work done by Quack74.

Feel free to add to these skins as you please. If reposting any of these parts with your new work, just throw a little credit my way. It took a long time to make these. Thanks.

 

 

I would like to thank EmlD for creating the N.28 model some years ago and posting it for us at CombatAce.com.

 

 

I have created a completely new skin for the N.28 along with numerous decals to create the 4 USAS Aero Squadrons that, together, form the USAS's 1rst Pursuit Group.

 

1. 27th Aero Squadron - Flying Eagle in red circle

2. 94th Aero Squadron - Hat In The Ring

3. 95th Aero Squadron - Kicking Mule

4. 147th Aero Squadron - Terrier "Who Said Rats?"

The Nieuport.28 was the sole aircraft used by the American pursuit group from the

Late Winter of 1918 until the first week of August 1918 when The 1rst Pursuit

Group was re-equipped with the SPADXIII. When first delivered the N.28's were

unarmed. Some of the first frontline flights were done with unarmed aircraft in

March. More or less done to familiarize pilots with the type and the "Front"

itself. It wasn't until March 28, 1918 that the Squadrons began to receive guns

for their planes. But just enough to mount one per plane. The Nieuport.28's were

also Notorious for shedding their upper wing fabric do to poor glue quality.

stemming from the factory's lack of quality control. Few pilots had indeed lost their

lives do to this defect.
