Okay, so I'm starting an Italian front install

Recommended Posts

I created a second install to use Vogesen terrain as a mock up of Italy, as Quack has done. I know the French, Germans, and British sent units to fight. I'm trying to find information on what types, other than the native Italian and Austrian types I should include. I know the British sent Camels and RE8s, the French sent Spads and Nieuports, and the Germans sent some Albatrosses, and DFWs, but any information folks can point me toward would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks, Quack. Doing a lot of internet research myself, but just started, so it's going to take a while. Thanks for the info. Balancing time between real life, doing research, and just simply wanting to fly the Western Front sim i already have. :biggrin:
