Well, here's a new one from me. A P-39. That's one of my 'mystery projects'. The other one? well.. you'll have to be patient.

This particular machine was made under Lend Lease contract, and served with 21 GIAP.

Fear not, fans-of-US-aircraft.. I certainly do have some US schemes planned for this aircraft. And some other nationalities.

Enjoy, and comments are very, very welcome http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Excellent skin as always!!! But I am particularly interested in this skin, or rather your sources for it.

I have been researching the history of the real 69th GIAP, and I have found that the 21st GIAP was kind of like a sister regiment to the the 69th with both of them being assigned under the same aviation division, the 23rd GIAD, with many pilots being swapped between them from 1943 onwards, and they also both trained together with 22d ZAP training regiment over the summer of '43 when they were retrained to fly the Cobra, and both regiments used the aircraft until the war's end.

Do you have any resources regarding the 69th at all??

That's a beautiful skin CanonUK. The P39 was the first bird I flew in IL2 (ah, the demo) and it's still great.

Now where can we get this?

Tooz_69GIAP.. I'm afraid that nothing springs to mind at the moment. Have a look at vvs.hobbyvista.com

Feathered_IV.. I recently ordered a book on the Japanese Army Airforce, and Japanese aircraft are planned for the future

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content"> The assembly of the aircraft was accomplished directly on the airfield. Despite the severe winter, work went from dawn to dusk, and than for several more hours the team members conducted exercises in classrooms for ZAP specialists or were involved in translating instructions. Thanks to this unstinting effort, the first airplane was assembled and prepared in a minimum amount of time.

remarkable.

i consider that paragraph does little justice to the realities of the situation: snow, ice, gloved hands on small fasteners, andyone who has dropped nuts, washers and bolts into grass knows how easy they just vanish, constant wind chill, low light conditions, working long hours on rationed food.

fighting the germans was probably the icing on the cake, the real war was with the elements.
