    Etrich Taube

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Aircraft - World War I

    Description: This is an authorized conversion of the Etrich Taube (Dove) for First Eagles by Stephen Wroble (Stephen1918), now flyable in CFS2 - thank you Stephen!

    Original model, representing the Kondor Taube, made with Autodesk 3D Studio Max by Stephen Wroble.
    Stephen armed the observer with a rifle which would be aimed and fired with both the player and AI aircraft in First Eagles.

    Converted and reworked with 3D Object Converter, ModelConverterX and Gmax by Martin Klein to incorporate wing warping and animated crew members.
    The observer will deploy the Mauser rifle when an AI Taube is under attack in CFS2.

    The stock 30can sound is replaced by a single rifle gunshot sound by Kevin Driver.

    Many thanks for this wonderful aircraft! I'll be flying her tonight in my CFS2WWI install.

    I haven't gotten to creating a WWI install yet, so have not commented on many of your recent works, but could not hold my tongue on this, outstanding work Westfront, your recent work has me gathering things together for a WWI install. Can't wait to fly this strange yet beautiful looking bird.
