A military cargo version of the DC3/C47 mod. New 3D shapes courtesy of Markindel and packaged with military liveries with kind permission of Markindel/CrazyEddie. Revamped FM values in an attempt to more accurately represent the performance of the real aircraft. Ability to drop WW2 era supply containers inspired by the work of Eric and Patrick Cuesta's AC130 mod
<edit> 22/10/2018 re-uploaded to fix sound issue
<edit> 25/10/2018 re-uploaded to correct the engine type issue and include readme advising how to get piston engine sounds from the aircraft if the user wishes to
<edit> 03/11/2018 re-uploaded. Converts the engines back to piston engines from turboprop and sound file workaround is no longer required. Updated some FM values based on new information found in a 1951 journal from The Aeronautical Society of India. Added mission editor load outs.
This version features a new central 3D shape with cargo doors removed ready for airdropping supplies. It adds new weapon shapes to accurately represent A4 and A5 soft droppable supply containers and provide correctly coloured parachutes for the A5 containers to represent the contents of the container (Red = Ammo/explosives, white=medical, green=general equipment). A4 containers tended to contain ad-hoc contents and typically had green chutes according to information found on various reference websites.
Best used with the WW2 carpet bombing waypoint action as the length of the bomb pattern can be used to control the frequency of dropping the containers. One caveat is that due to a quirk of DCS World you cannot drop a mix of types and therefore the load out code will not allow a mixed load across the load points and the load must be either 6,12 or 18 of the same container type. Note a hard (fictional) supply box is also available. Hard containers were not used in WW2 era supply drops as experiments showed the container and contents were very likely to be damaged on landing due to transmission of shock of landing
Available loads are:
A4 containers, A5 ammunition containers, A5 medical containers, A5 general equipment containers, Fictional supply box and alternate variants of each with smoke and flare attached.
Huge thank you to Markindel for his work on the new 3D models and also CrazyEddie for his kind permission to use his liveries and Eric and Patrick for showing it was possible with their AC130 mod.
