Ed, you want a WoE-stock style or an artwork style???

 

for the WoE-stock, I'll need the plane to take a screenshot of (that's the base). Artwork I've probably got something around, if not -- I'll find something!

Hi Wrench if you need any pictures for the defiant artwork style let me know as I have something roaming around my hard drive...

 

And it is looking good...

Had my first flight in this one tonight in my BoB install. It was very realistic and pretty historically accurate. 16 of us took off to intercept an inbound raid but got bounced by the escort (Fiat Cr-42s). The first fighter was shot down by our gunners, ptrobably thought he was bouncing a squadron of Hurricanes! After that it was a wild melee and the final result was that none of the bombers were touched, the enemy lost only that first fighter and we had 4 shot down, including me(!), and another 7 damaged. It would have probably been worse if I hadn't hit esc to report back to you guys.

 

A couple of points:

- I edited the data.ini to change the start date from 1942 to 1939, when the plane actually entered service.

- I think there might be a LOD problem, because in the external view the Defiants disappear when you zoom out a short distance from them. When you look at the flyby view it's as if they have a Romulan invisibilty cloak that keeps switching on and off. Although it didn't affect the enemy fighters' aim.

 

Having said all that it was a nice plane to fly. Any chance of a night fighter skin?

allen, did you try this:

 

[LOD001]

Filename=Defiant.lod

Distance=8000

 

and comment out the other callouts?

 

I guess you say the lodaing screen, Michael Turner's Daffy NF.1!

The germans had a fright when at first they encountered the Defiant...mistaking it for a hurri,they soon learnt to look closer when coming in from the six and getting four brownings spitting lead at them...they lost a few a\c before realising their error..

As cynical as it may sound, but I don't see anything wrong about the Defiant having a hard time...it was removed from front line service for a reason.
