    I know there were a couple versions designated (LR) -long range the were equipped with them and it seems most of the later models had them, or could have them as well. What you say about their use makes sense, it's so hard to piece together the finer details of what it was really like to operate these aircraft, but always worth it.

    Steve, in your work on this aircraft, did you encounter any information on the long range tanks installed on some models? From what I've found, there was a 250 US Gal tank in the bomb bay and a 134 US Gal tank in rear fuselage somewhere around the ventral gun position. Do you know if these were used in combat? It would seem that the bomb bay tank would preclude carrying much bomb load, if any, as it would weigh in at 1,500lbs and the fuselage tank might prevent the use of some of the rear guns? Just wondering.

    Hi Roger, I started with repaints, for planes I'm studying for the necessary "know-how" (FSX plane modelling is completely different from FS9 one)......... However here is another Italian C-47 (Just uploaded, I hope in a future "real" DC-3 from Manfred Jahn.....). "Societa' Aerea Mediterranea" was the "Alitalia's" charter/cargo branch during 60'/70'. :wavey:

    Yes, rechecked all of this in my Win 7 machine, seems to look good when down low( 1500ft. to 2000ft.) as Master GOSD said. But again one wouldn't be at 20k dropping these I don't think. Would be hard to hit a drop zone .. Oh how much Mead can I pack into one of these?? :applause: :applause: :applause: Thanks to ALL who built this beautiful set of Birds..

    Yes one of the issues, I discovered when I built this set. MAW Scenery wasn't finished and it caused some issues.. I loaded this improvement also into my Win 7 machine (8 gig of ram) It has improved the FPS +10 for this machine. Thanks very much

    I don't know, I haven't tried it. It would depend on what causes the MAW issue. Worth a shot.

    I use modified scenery budgets that really eat it up (but they look nice). I don't really get any FPS increase with the 4GB patch, but it does increase how high I can turn up my settings and how long I can fly without a CTD due to memory overuse. Now it doesn't matter what I do, it doesn't CTD.
