About This File
Note - This plane uses the same name as Bortdafarm's Oeffag Albatros D.II so that it will appear in Ojcar's Armchair Aces campaigns without any revisions. However, installing mine will overwrite Bort's plane. If you want to have them both, you will need to rename one of them.
The Albatros D.II was a successful German built fighter. In late 1916, the Austrian firm Oeffag was licensed to produce Albatros fighters for the Austro-Hungarian military. Very few Oeffag D.IIs were produced before production went over to the D.IIIs, but for a time, it was the best fighter on the Italian and Eastern Fronts.
The Oeffag built plane had a more powerful engine than the German built planes (185 hp Austro-Daimler) and carried only one Schwarzlose gun in the fuselage as opposed to two Spandaus on the German plane. It also had minor changes to the wings, tail, and cockpit.
This download includes a basic linen and wood skin, an insignia decal, and a full set of serial numbers. The skinning templates are identical to the original Albatros D.II templates, I have included them in this download for the sake of convenience.
Only 16 Oeffag Albatros D.II's were produced. I have added a few fake serial numbers to fill out the list so the game won't be able to assign duplicate numbers. You may see numbers 53.17 through 53.20 in the game, but these planes were never actually built.
My thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the Oeffag Albatros D.II.
My thanks also to Nix for making the sound file for the Austro-Daimler 185hp engine.
For FE1 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "OefAlbatrosDII" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. You also need to move the sound file "Austro-daimler185.wav" into your FirstEagles/Sounds folder.
For FE2 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "OefAlbatrosDII" into your FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "OefAlbatrosDII." Move the folder named "D" from the Aircraft/OefAlbatrosDII folder into the Decals/OefAlbatrosDII folder you just made. You also need to move the sound file "Austro-daimler185.wav" into the FirstEagles/Sounds folder.
