    Handley Page Hampden

    I finally got around to installing the "flying coffin". I really like the look of the Hampden, it is so evocative of the late '30s. So into Pat's Bob it went. At first I accidentally put in the alpha version which Clive had kindly let me tinker with. It had a wee problem with air speed, in that its wings peeled off at 200mph!!

    Then I rattled around and found the more recent version on my HDD, which comes with various skins and biographies. Clive has done an excellent job in converting this bird from CFS2. With help from the usual suspects (Rob, John) this old bird really scrubs up well with Ankors shaders installed. I learned that the gun stations had twin Vickers - quite an antique configuration.

    In quick combat mode with a wingman, we circled around Henly at 2500ft being harassed by an Hs123. My wingman copped a fair bit of damage, but sent the Hun off with heavy smoke pouring from the motor.

    I'm hoping to see the Hampden popping up in my random air spawns from now on...

    I always preferred its other nickname, The Flying Suitcase. Lovely job by Clive, isnít it?

    Hampdens in Bob

    Ah, yes, that was the term I was looking for! Couldn't remember it. Thanks, Tom.

    I changed the Whitley to Allowspawn=n because it was popping up too much, and the next campaign mission saw the appearance of a flight of Handley-Page Hampdens over the front line, where they successfully took out some important bridges!
