Presenting Markindel's

Bell P-39 Airacobra

The Bell P-39 Airacobra was one of the principal American fighter aircraft in service when the United States entered World War II. The P-39 was used by the Soviet Air Force, which scored the highest number of individual kills attributed to any U.S. fighter type in the Eastern European theatre. Other major users of the type included the Free French, the Royal Air Force, the United States Army Air Forces, and the Italian Co-Belligerent Air Force.

(see wiki, included)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to thank Mario for this wonderful addition to DCS world and WW II.

This aircraft was a special request I made to him.

Why choose this aircraft?

The P-39 was used throughout the war by Russia.

We do not have many (or is it any?) Russian WW II aircraft in sim.

It also was used throughout the war by other countries besides the USA.

It was usual in it's configuration with a mid engine.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Features

P-51D cockpit and controls
Correct five gun configuration
Two wing pylons for bombs
Center pylon for fuel tank.
Theme created by Eric and Patrick Cuesta. Thank you!
Liveries by Markindel.
Skeleton livery by request by me, original by Markindel, nose art that was really used. (see pic in main mod folder)
(skeleton livery art-work re-done and fixed by Eric and Patrick Cuesta) Thank you!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note!

To take off, Push the stick full forward and apply the throttle gently at first.

Once sufficient ground speed is obtained, slowly release the stick to the neutral position.
Steer with pedals.

At correct ground speed, pull back on the stick.

Practice!

It took me 12 or more times to get it down smooth.

I crashed the first 8!

The next two I would not want to show you!
----------------------------------------------
Important!

To make these work you must copy the Bin, cockpit and FM folders from the P51D folder to the P-39 folder.

Then copy the mainpanel_init.lua file into the scripts folder in /cockpit/scripts/

Overwrite.

This is a BETA

As such there may be bugs.

Please report issues in this thread.

We will respond. Please have patience.

Version 0.98 Beta

Tested in 1.5.6

Thank you and Have fun!

The WW II ADC Team

Update! 3/28/17

This is a new version of this aircraft.

This version was extensively re-worked by Eric and Patrick Cuesta.
They have fixed all the issues they found.
This version has only a single center pylon for bombs or tank.
This matches the actual aircraft in real life.

This version does not have the taking off issue that the first does.

Thank you for your work!

Note From Eric and Patrick Cuesta
"Hello

The P39 is finished it made us suffer:

Texture review with 2D cockpit
Positioning of weapons and cartridge ejections
Positioning of the cockpit of the P51D and new file collision a little
But left rudder operational left.
Take off now."

(Hello

Le P39 est terminé il nous a fait souffir :

Texture revue avec cockpit 2D
positionnement des armes et ejections des cartouches
positionnement du cockpit du P51D et nouveau fichier collision un peu
enfonçé mais gouvernail droite gauche opérationnel.
Décolle bien maintenant.)

You may install either mod alone.
You can not have both installed at the same time.

The installation is the same for both mods.

Version 1.02 Beta

Hello hawkeye!

This is a beautiful plane, great job! However I am struggling with the takeoff. I add rudder trim and forward stick but before it reaches rotating speed plane becomes uncontrollable and goes to the left with a following crash.

I followed instructions, copied the 3 p-51 folders as instructed and also copied the p-51 mainpanel_init.lua file into the scripts folder in /cockpit/scripts/. I am unsure about this last step. Is that what instructions ask for?

Thanks!
