About This File
I have made eight tanks and armored cars for the Spanish Civil War. They are equally divided between the factions, with four for each side.
Several FT-17 tanks were purchased by Spain after WWI. Some of them were still in service when the Civil War started and were used by both sides. I am using the LODs from the FE Objects.ini. I have made new data files using SCW nations and new skins.
The Schneider tank was used in WWI, and a few were purchased by Spain after the war. Only a few were still in service when the Civil War started, and were used by the Republican (government) forces. I have made a new version for SCW with a new data file and skins.
The Lancia armored car was also introduced in WWI. Production continued well into the 1920s and it was used by the Italian Army until the beginning of WWII. The Italians provided several to the Nationalist (rebel) forces when the Spanish Civil War began. I have made a new version for SCW with a new data file and skins.
The Panzer 1 was a small German tank first introduced in 1934. It has a crew of two and was armed with two machine guns in a turret. More than a hundred of them were provided to the Nationalist forces. Most of them were operated by the Condor Legion (German troops fighting for the Nationalists) but many were operated by Spanish units.
The UNL-35 was a Spanish built armored car armed with two machine guns, one in a turret and one in the body. It was used extensively by Republican forces but with a high center of gravity, it did not perform well off-road. Production began in 1937 and continued throughout the war. After the war the UNL-35 served in the Spanish army until the late 1950s.
The T-26 was a Soviet tank armed with a 45mm gun. It was probably the best tank used in the Spanish Civil War. A relatively large number were purchased by the Republic during the war. Many of them were captured during the war and used by the Nationalists. I have made a data file and skins for both sides.
My data file for the T-26 tank uses the 2 pounder Davis gun which is included in First Eagles. I have also included gun data for the 45mm tank gun which was actually used in the tank. You can install and use it if you wish.
Unzip the file and open my folder named "GroundObject". Copy all the folders to your FirstEagles/Objects/GroundObject folder. All of the tanks and armored cars use the same skin for the destroyed version. Copy the file named "DestroyedArmoredCar.bmp" into your GroundObject folder. Note that the "DestroyedArmoredCar.bmp" file should not be inside any other folder.
