French airfields and French pilots

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I am surprised to don't see French airfields and pilots in uires file.

German, British, but not French in "France" (un comble)

In CFS3, ETO and MAW you have this.

 

Now a site who speaks about WW1 :

I have no idea what that uires file is, but I've had and currently have many French pilots active in OFF, so even if there is nothing in that file, it doesn't prevent us from flying as the French. I've always greatly admired the French pioneers of aviation, and they had a great air force during WW1. :good:

Oh, what a fine big fund of information about the French Escadrilles, socrate!

I had known this site, but had forgotten to save the address - now I have it back. Thanks a lot!!

 

I hope, that you can enlist as a French pilot despite the file? You should be able to do so.

There's a huge amount of historical info on that site. I particularly like the Escadrille emblem descriptions. All that art is fascinating, and even more so when you know the background.

 

Now if only I could speak French much better...

Thanks a lot, socrate! It is always exciting for me to read about such details.

It was not exciting for the poor Sous-Lieutenant Pouchelle, but he is dead now

and may watch us from his cloud with some amusement about our passion.

It's right but this men as sous-lieutenant Pouchelle have lived with "Honnor", if we can said the war is an honnor for the humanity.

Since the night of the time Humanity is in War : it's thus.

The true life is in us.

In the Pilot enlistment you can enlist as French , Brit, Hun and Yank - I assume you are running the OFF Manager - main OFF icon?
