Nieuport 27 skins of 83a Squadriglia for EmID Nieuport N27_FAS First Eagles 2

This is a  pack of skins focused on the history of the 83a Squadriglia. 

Historical notes: The 83a Squadriglia was formed on May 5, 1917 with several separate sections.
On 28 December 1917 the first Nieuport 27 arrived. In January 1918 Captain Giulio Moroni arrived and took command. In March there are 6 pilots including lieutenants Rino Corso Fougier and Enrico Gadda, 8 Ni 27 and one Ni 17. On March 18 the 83a Squadriglia moves with the 1st section to the San Pietro Airfield. On March 22 Fougier commands the squadron.
 At the end of the war 83a Squadriglia passed under command of the 6th Army with 14 Nieuport 27 having carried out 2,500 combat missions in 1918. In February 1919 the squadron passed to VII Group with 3 Nieuport 27 and 14 Hanriot and on March 25 it was dissolved.

- I painted new textures for the cockpit, with a new "GLASS.tga" to complement all of them. The gauges & needles were made as close as possible to the real instruments.

- Releasing two versions: One in 1024x1024(JPG & TGA) and other in 2048x2048(JPG & TGA). 

- I set the 1024x1024(JPG & TGA) as standard for the planes. 

*OBS: If you are running a low-end computer I do not recommend the use of 2048x2048 cockpit textures.
