Great icons of aircrafts!

If this is intresting I d'like to mention about two models of aircrafts in Armée de l’air in 1940 which were used by Polish Army in France too.

Koolhoven F.K.58



The story of this Dutch aircraft only 20 from 50 delivered to France before german invasion. Handed to Polish airforce on exile during battle of France.

I'll think about it but they were used only as fighters and YES.... we do have others like that already in the game but I give preference to strafers only when the OOB might be short of a bomb carrying ground attack aircraft for a time or it has some historical significance .


The Koolhoven at this scale is almost identical to the Fokker D.XXI



( and is armed the same )which I have rebuilt earlier this year



And Yes... they are only strafers as well but they were already in the OOB's

I love it You even cared about asymetrical chequers

Anyway, Kolhooven and CR 714 were very niche fighters and rather weren't used against ground targets. If we'd like to add an interesting aircraft, than maybe LN 411?... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loire-Nieuport_LN.401

Just found an missing photo for Romanian OOB

RWD-14b "Czapla" polish STOL observation aircraft with folded wings


RWD-14b in Polish service



Article about
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RWD-14_Czapla


Poland have around 80 of them after 1939 2 were captured by Soviets in Wilno, small number by Germans both sides were not interested and never used them even for testing probably they were scraped by Germans fate of this in Soviet hands in unknown. One interned in Latvia than to Soviets after 1940. One interned by Hungary and used by them


Between 14 to 17 interned in Romania. In April 1943 was mentioned that they have still 14 of them in service. here is source https://dobroni.pl/artykul/rwd-14-czapla/565021

They have no Bomb racks but each of them was equipped in radio device and two MG one 7,92 mm Vickers F in observation cabin for self-defence. And 7,92 mm PWU wz.33 which shots through engine and propeller for attacking other aircraft's or strafing in pilots disposition.

Icons are already done and inside game shp from about 10 years for polish version and Romania green and brown-green camo with yellow crosses. What is missing that is Czapla with Romanian roundels used before April 1941. What is nice that if we have striking version of Czapla on battlefield which will use this one MG in pilots hands similarly too slow German observation craft which now are also in role of ersatz battlefield support.

I'm late for few hours but also worked RWD-14b "Czapla" (Heron). Romanian with roundels is already done faster by you Don thanks I'm slower but there are all posible camo's for that aircraft.

Here parked on Sola AF airbase map
- Romanian before 1941 the same which was done by you earlier
- Hungarian they have only one but camo is intresting and propably they use this aircraft in army
- German captured they never even tested them but have a few.
- One of the three capured by Soviets
- And premiere for SPWW2 one Czapla which was interned in Latvia and used by their AF until repainted with red stars .


There is this story

Just as addon other polish observation aircraft used by Romanians. In 1939 17 of this aircrafts were interned in Romania and included in their AF http://wp.scn.ru/en/ww15/o/235/12/0. One example was in hands of Soviets one in Hungary and one captured by Slovakia. Propably none of them use this antique aircraft except Romanians.



Small improvment Lublin in both version R.XIIIG hydro & R.XIIID has capacity 6 bombs 12,5kg insdead 4 like is now in OOB. And has only vikers MG in observation cabin. Where I found this? This is other intresting story about exceptional bombing raid on Free city of Danzig in the day when was incorporated to Third Reich.

I just read about an action done by lone polish R.XIIIG hydro
in 7th September 1939 late evening. His mision was bombing BB Schleswig-Holstein near Westerplatte but when he arrived fighting were finished and batleship already gone in darkness as rest of the city. Westerpllate fall during that day but Lublin crew don't know about this. So they flight over dark streets of Danzig old town and by blind luck or rather by torches lights and loud military music suprised german NSDAP victory parade.
In memories of the crew is mentioned that they relase all 6 small bombs inside happy crowd with flags and torches and use MG from the rear to diperase them.
The link to whole story google translated from polish
