I've updated the flight model to bring the float level, performance and handling more in line with the actual aircraft.. THIS IS NOT an exact flight model.. Those can take months to do as youve all seen with the P-61 and other planes, but I think you'll find it challenging and enjoyable.. Handling is smooth and over all control requires a bit of thinking ahead, but is still quite controllable..
To install, simply make backups of your original flight model and drop these files in.. The Aircraft.cfg file has an entry for my PB-FS1 livery already in it.
This is a fictitious texture created for use with puttputts amazing little fairchild super 71.. I have included my psd files though you may find them confusing and not user friendly. Please keep in mind that i am a number cruncher and not an artist though.. I hope you enjoy it as this is a wonderful little plane...
You will only need the USS Enterprise and Fairey Barracuda from www.isoliti4gatti.com to fly this mission. You will be taking off from your carrier to patrol an area between the coast and your fleet. Attack submarines and man the rear gun to defend yourself against a BF-109. Carrier landing with 10kt wind. Have fun and watch your six!!!

The Fairey Barracuda was a British carrier-borne torpedo and dive-bomber used during the Second World War, the first of its type to be fabricated entirely from metal. It was introduced to the Fleet Air Arm as a replacement for the Fairey Swordfish and Fairey Albacore biplanes. It is notable for its role in attacking the German battleship Tirpitz and infamous for its unusual appearance when the undercarriage was extended and wings folded.
The first monoplane torpedo bomber of the Fleet Air Arm, the Fairey Barracuda was designed in Britain as a three seat torpedo/bomber/reconnaissance aircraft, which began entering service in late 1943. When first flown on 7th December, 1940, the first prototype Barracuda a cantilever shoulder-wing monoplane of all-metal construction, the foldable wings incorporating Fairey-Youngman trailing-edge flaps that gave the aircraft a much improved performance capability over its predecessors, the Fairey Swordfish and Albacore. The fuselage accompanied a crew of three in tandem cockpits, enclosed by a long 'greenhouse' canopy; and housed the main units of the tailwheel landing gear when retracted.
Fairey Battle, hypothetical Finnish Air Force variant, late 1941-42.
The Finnish Air Force did not in fact use the Battle, but given the various British and French types delivered between late 1939 and early 1941, the Battle might well have figured on the list. By the end of 1941, they would have looked much like this, with the specific Finnish green and black camouflage and yellow identification markings.
The FAF did operate Hurricanes, Lysanders, Ripons, Blenheims I, II and IV, MS-406 and 410 and CR.714, which meant that at the outset of the Continuation War on 25th June 1941, it was largely equipped with what the Luftwaffe would consider as 'enemy' aircraft types.
In theory, the Battle had a spinner. In practice however, this spinner chafed badly on the cowling and was normally removed in Commonwealth use. The spinner included in this pack is simply a fictitious Finnish Air Force modification designed to increase the Battle's hopelessly poor performance.
It is worth noting that the Finnish swastika has no connection whatsoever to the Nazi one, and predates it by some years. It is still in use today.
