SPAD A.2

Recommended Posts

Waiting for administrative approval.

 

I have uploaded the SPAD A.2. This is the Russian version, with a center panel in the upper wing, and a Colt-Browning machine gun. I have included 3 Russian skins, and a French skin. My thanks to Ojcar for making the FM, thanks to Sindad and Whitekinght for info about the plane, and thanks to Sinbad for bringing the Colt-Browning to my attention.

This is a great addition to the FE hangars.

 

Is this now the only flight sim that can boast a Spad A2?

 

I think the Royal Aircraft Factory 'borrowed' the design for the B.E. 9, aka the Pulpit. From what I 've read British airmen were not at all impressed with having to sit in the front of the propellor, but in any case I dont think any of these crates made it to the front.

 

As for the French aviators, they at least started with a SPAD.

 

Lovely work Stephen, cant wait to fly it.

 

...and no this wasnt a call for you to make the BE9...you do what you want mate, coz you always seem to make such great aircraft, thank you.

 

Cheers Grinseed

Have just flown a quick 'interception' mission in the A2, only for the 4 of us to be pitted against Pfalz DIII's escorting a bunch of Gothas. Nevertheless, I managed to get behind one and while I think I may want to tweak the gunner's capabilities a little, he managed to knock one down, just visible diving 'OOC' for the deck ahead of all the struts and stuff ahead:

Another excellent model, and FE is indeed the only sim with the Spad A2, and the most diverse inventory of aircraft.

 

My only problem is I cannot possible skin these birds as fast as Stephen builds them!

 

Salute!

33LIMA is right, i have flown a bunch of mission and the front gunner was on the target, we shooted down a few planes :-)

 

Very good addition, keep up the good work guys!!!

 

I wish i could donate some money to Stephen1918 for all the work he is doing for us, but at this moment i'm unemployed :-(
