About This File
The SPAD 16 was essentially a SPAD 11 with a more powerful Lorraine-Dietrich 240 hp engine. Although it was faster, the heavier engine made the SPAD 16 harder to handle and performance was slightly worse than the SPAD 11. Like the SPAD 11, it was armed with a forward firing Vickers gun and a Lewis gun on a ring mount for the observer. It could also carry a small bomb load under the wings.
The SPAD 16 entered service early in 1918. Several French squadrons were equipped with the SPAD 16 and a few were purchased by the US. It continued in service until the end of the war.
I have made two skins for the SPAD 16 - a French camo, and a USAS camo - each with appropriate squadron insignia. Most of the skins are identical to the SPAD 11 skins, only the Fuselage and Upper Right Wing skins are changed. My skinning templates are included in the download for those who want to make their own skins.
I did not have a sound file for the Lorraine-Dietrich engine, so I used the same sound as the SPAD 11.
Thanks to Ojcar for making the data file for the SPAD 16.
Thanks also to Nix for making the sound file for the Hispano-Suiza engine.
For FE1 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "SPAD16" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. If you don't already have it installed, you also need to move the sound file "hispsuiz4M220.wav" into the FirstEagles/Sounds folder.
For FE2 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "SPAD16" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Aircraft folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create new folder named "SPAD16". Move the folder named "D" from the Aircraft/SPAD16 folder into the Decals/SPAD16 folder you just made. If you don't already have it installed, you also need to move the sound file "hispsuiz4M220.wav" into the FirstEagles/Sounds folder.
