Airco DH9a "Ninak"

Airco DH9a "Ninak"

The Airco DH9a, called the "Ninak" ("nine a") was introduced in June 1918 to replace the underpowered DH9. The 400hp Liberty engine required changes to the front of the fuselage, otherwise the plane was pretty much the same as the DH9. Although it was introduced late in the war, the DH9a did see service during the war, and was used extensively afterwards.


I have included two skins, a brown and an olive color. Both use the letter decals that come with First Eagles (which you can set in the loadout screen) and I have included a set of serial numbers which will be applied randomly. There are also loadouts for light, medium, and heavy bomb loads.


The skins are rather generic, I have included my skinning templates for those who wish to make better skins.




My thanks to Ojcar for once again making an excellent data file for the DH9a.

My thanks also to Sinbad for providing a great deal of resource information for this plane.



Installation Instructions

For FE1 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "AircoDH9a" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder.


For FE2 - Unzip the file and move the folder named "AircoDH9a" into the FirstEagles/Objects/Airplanes folder. Then in the FirstEagles/Objects/Decals folder, create a new folder named "AircoDH9a". Move the folder named "D" from the Airplanes/AircoDH9a folder into the Decals/AircoDH9a folder you just made.




April 5, 2012 - Replaced data file with new version to fix problem with take offs and landings and making the plane fly better.
