A military paratroop 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 troops inspired by the work of Eric and Patrick Cuesta's AC130 mod.

<edit> 03/11/2018 re-uploaded. Converts the engines back to piston engines from turboprop and sound file workaround 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 an opening jump door. It adds new weapon shapes to represent WW2 era parachute troops.
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 troops.
Available loads are:
WW2 parachute troops, alternate variant with smoke and flare attached.
Note some historical reference information is included in the mod zipfile.
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.
