    Amiot 143M French bomber for CFS2 uploaded

    Hi Folks,

    Just finished tweaking and uploaded for CFS2. Two texs, now with a VC and new 2D panel, flies well and no FR hit.

    Just in time for the 'big push' French campaigns up and coming....

    Thank you Shessi!

    I saw the FS9 version appear and was hoping you'd be sending one our way eventually.

    Looks like great work as always and I look forward to trying her out.

    Cheers

    Mark,

    Many thanks for this; I will test it alongside the Bismarck13 model that UncleTgt spit-shined and see how she holds up!

    Thanks Shessi,

    This is a great addition and beautifully done.

    Yep, ummm interesting alright. Kind of like they took the body of a bus and stuck wings on it. No doubt an austerity measure during the depression.

    Thanks Shessi, it's a good addition to the Hangar.
    Cheers,

    Look at the British bombers from the 20s/early 30s. Remember the Handley-Page Heyford, which was introduced only one year before the Amiot 143.

    Hi Folks,
    Yes I have become quite fond of the ol' Amiot, all nations produced some questionable ac at this time..ha ha!

    It was that trasitional period between the wars. Just think though that in the 10 years from 1935 to 1945 we went from this type of ac to transonic swept wings and 550mph+/950kph+ and 50,000ft/15,000m!!

    And huge thanks to the SAS IL-2 team and the late-great Paul Clawson for their original work.

    Cheers

    Hi Roxane-21 and Shessi

    Agreed. There was enough weirdness to go around all the aircraft producing countries in the late 20's and early 30's as the aircraft designers groped for new ideas and new manufacturing methods while they still had to be influenced by the then current tried and true concepts. So there was this strange blend for a decade or so. The USA was hardly immune - look at the 1930 Bellanca Air Cruiser C-27 for example.
