A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Aircraft - German
Description: Me 323 Gigant
Very large transport aircraft derived from Me 321 glider. When the Germans occupied France in 1940 they found they had a very large number of Gnome-Rhone engines on their hands - these they put to use by putting six on the Me321 = Me 323 and two on the Gotha glider.
Since CFS2 only supports four engines I've had to cheat to give the impression of six and for this I give credit to Martin Wright for his 'Animated props for AI planes' which you will need to download from his site at
CFS2/FS2002 - Extras - Animated props for AI planes
The other prop textures are by the master of props - Kelticheart
The .air file is derived from Stuart Green's Halifax
The crew are the German pilots by Mauro Giacomazzi - whether they are still available I don't know because his website seems unobtainable.
All mistakes and errors in shape and paint job are mine and I fully accept responsibility - feel free to do a much better skin.
This is strictly FREEWARE and only available at Sim-Outhouse
