Spitfire Mk.IX Beer Tanker v0.9
« on: September 21, 2014, 05:34:11 AM »

Hello!
This is a mod that adds to your game a modification of the Spitfire Mk.IX - beer tanker.
This modification was in use in the 1944, when soldiers wanted to drink some in the Normandy
Modification is fully historical ;)




Special greetings to the max_thehitman :D

Thanks ! Now, I can have a drink ! Just a question : the beer tanks are supposed not to be dropped, right ? or only the ones with the parachutes ?

They are to drop as the fuel tanks ;)
In my 4.12 they drop perfectly (just fact).

And easily customisable too...  ;D

Seriously, thank you very much Radge (and sorry Max, I guess the tanks skin is your work).

AAAHAHAAH!  ;D That looks GREAT! I love this new mod!
Thank you very much Radge. It looks very cool.

Many years ago I did a painting of this spitfire event in Normandy and in my research I found out
they actually carried the beer inside metal drop-tanks and not in wooden barrels. Like in the photo
posted above by Bison-M ,
But the wooden barrels under the wings do look extra cool.  :D 

Korrigan,
I donĀ“t think they are my barrels-skins, but even if they are, you are OK to paint them over in your style.
Have fun with them!

As I know, a pioneer of this method (indeed - using metal drop-tanks, not barrels) was Polish pilot Flight Lieutnant Tadeusz Schiele from 308 Fighter Squadron.
I'm not sure if I remember well - another Polish pilot, Janusz Meissner wrote about it in his memoirs... I'll must check it ;-)))

Greetings for all,
