About This File
The AEG C.IV was a German 2 seater that was introduced in 1916 and saw service until the end of the war. It served on the Western, Eastern, and Palestine fronts and was operated by Bulgaria and Turkey as well as by Germany. It was primarily a reconnaissance plane, but was also used as a bomber escort, although not very successfully. It had a fixed Spandau machine gun for the pilot, a Parabellum on a ring mount for the observer, and could carry a small bomb load.
I have included two skins, a green and lilac camo, and a green and brown camo. I have also included a full set of number decals. My skinning templates are included in the download.
There are two bomb loadouts, one internal, and one external mounted under the wings. It is doubtful that the AEG C.IV carried external bombs, but I liked the look of it. For historical accuracy, you probably shouldn't use the External Bombs loadout.
Thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the AEG C.IV and for providing valuable information, especially for the cockpit details.
Thanks also to Nix, who made the sound file for the Mercedes 160hp engine.
Thanks to Ojcar (again) for pointing out the problem with the decals.
For FE1 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "AEGC4" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. You also need to move the sound file "mercedes160m2.wav" into the FirstEagles/Sounds folder.
For FE2 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "AEGC4" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create new folder named "AEGC4". Move the folder named "D" from the Aircraft/AEGC4 folder into the Decals/AEGC4 folder you just made. You also need to move the sound file "mercedes160m2.wav" into the FirstEagles/Sounds folder.
