Caudron CR.714 - Version 1 (17/06/12)
« on: June 16, 2012, 11:10:16 PM »

                       = Caudron CR.714 =     
                                ###WIP/Alpha###



"On 18 May 1940, 35 Caudrons CR.714 were delivered to the Polish Warsaw Squadron, the Groupe de Chasse polonais I/145, stationed at the Mions airfield. After just 23 sorties, adverse opinion of the fighter was confirmed by front line pilots who expressed concerns that it was seriously underpowered and was no match for contemporary German fighters.
On 25 May, only a week after it was introduced, French Minister of War Guy la Chambre ordered all CR.714s to be withdrawn from active service. However, since the French authorities had no other aircraft to offer, the Polish pilots ignored the order and continued to fly the Caudrons. Despite flying a fighter hopelessly outdated compared to the Messerschmitt Bf 109E, the Polish pilots scored 12 confirmed and three unconfirmed victories in three battles between 8 June and 11 June, losing nine in the air and nine more on the ground. Interestingly, among the aircraft shot down were four Dornier Do 17 bombers, but also three Messerschmitt Bf 109 and five Messerschmitt Bf 110 fighters." Source: Wikipedia

Christmas time in June!  ;D ;D ;D

We have had an amazing wave of aircraft, and this one is yet another wonderful addition. If it works I will include it in my France 1940-campaign ASAP!

And all you talented skinners out there: the Finns had six of them!

QUICK UPDATE:

Yes, she flies in QMB, saves in FMB, the AI know how to take-off. And she has already bagged her first Dornier Do-17Z! Beautiful! THANKS PhilHL!

That is very true. They hated it...

I love this ugly-beautiful aircraft, with the lines of a 30-ies racer! THANKS!!!

All types of skins for it would be just LOVELY!
