Hi!

I have just done a comparative test of bomber shootings with your lates releases!

One bomber vs 3 He-51 or Cr.42!

About this great plane I discovered that it have the gunners still shooting after being killed and strangely when the shoots hits the fuselage the bombardier was also killed....but it's position is still operable....maybe something wrong with crew position?

Moreover it's really hard to shoot down!

Many shoots targeted at the engines results in light damage even from the 12,7 of the CR32.... maybe the strongness of the engine is too high or the hitbox too small?

When shoot at the engines them rarely became inoperable and the left one when fall down reappear as nacelle only perpediculary the left front of the plane at the front gunner legs height....I believe that something similar happen also at the right engine....

Hope to have reorted useful information!

All the very best!

Major update Potez 1.4 (first post updated)

Download link:
Potez540.rar
updated version 1.4 link:
https://www.mediafire.com/?tgten2pyqus2o01

This version includes all the former updates

This is a major update.
Potez V1.4
1) It includes the Lorraine Petrel engined Potez 542, that saw service in Spain - not really an improvement on the Potez 540, as it had worse performances - and the radial Gnome and Rhone engined Potez 543 (almost all the planes of this version were sold to Romania) that had also a modified, enlarged vision, upper gunner turret.
2) The Spanish "locally upgraded" Potez 540 and 542 (the ones who are equipped with "Catalana " bombs, locally produced versions of Soviet bombs) are now equipped with Shkas MGs instead of the Lewis MkII (that still remains the armament of the remaining Potez 540 and 542)
3) The Potez 543 is equipped with Darne machine guns (a standard armament, BTW, on quite a number of Romanian aircraft, as were French bombs).
3) The Potez 540 is equipped with a functionnal Visor STAe modele 1924, the Potez 543 with a functionnal Visor STAE modele A. These visors, developped in ww1, remained the standard bombardier visor till the late 30s - not only in France but in other countries such as Poland and Soviet Union, among others, where they inspired the production of local variants. To aim, check that your are in level flight (your STAe visor includes a functional spirit level), adjust the middle pin (the "pinnule" in French, with the target - the middle one and not the front one as in the Italian Jozza, itself a developpment of the STAe).
As only direct drop using angle of bomb dropping is currently available in Il2, this visor is quite accurate till 1000m, as described in the original instructions of the STAE visor. Above this height "timed dropping" was used, a kind of real time calibration using a chronometer/reverse chronometer, as the direct method based only upon angle of dropping, resulted in bombs felling increasingly short of the objectives as bomb drop was made from a higher altitudes - but with training you'll know better your visor and will learn how to overcome this shortcoming.
Note that I used the HUDCustomize mod in order to calibrate teh visor, as you need to use the TAS and not teh iAS - even at low altitude, the difference may be quite consistent on certain maps
4) The Bombardier position includes a functional Vion HA83 compass and other cosmetic improvements.
5) The characteristic side fuselage door will close when landing gear retracts (and open when you deploys the landing gear)
6) TGPU bomb racks will display in game (not in the QMB) in accrodance with the selected bomb array (similarly to the Type D and Type F racks)

Note: You need to install (if you have not done it already) the French and Spanish bombs packs to fly these birds and a supplementary armamanent package:

AMAZING MATE!!!

I'm pursuing an auction for a book about the Aviazione Legionaria Italiana , among my other books about the Legion Condor I plan to realize a Dynamic campaign covering all the SCW in the next months!

Thanks for your great works around!

SCW is possible thanks to your and your fellow efforts!
