Curtiss P-40-CU early versions and Tomahawk Mk.I
« on: July 07, 2016, 03:49:11 AM »

Curtiss P-40-CU, P-40-CU late and Tomahawk Mk.I







This mod represents the very first P-40 series.
In 1940, USAAC aquired 200 brand-new P-40-CUs (Hawk 81A-1), powered with an Allison V-1710-33 and armed with only two M2 12,7mm (later integrated with two wing-mounted 7,62mm). No armor for pilot and fuel tanks were issued. A single plane, s/n 40-326, was converted
to photo-recon and re-designated P-40A in March 1942.
Other 140 Hawk 81A-1s were ordered by the french government but never delivered because France was defeated; this order was taken by the RAF. The planes were renamed Tomahawk Mk.I, and shipped to Great Britain in September '40; due to lack of armor, fuel tanks protection and poor engine performance at high altitude, the Tomahawk Mk.I was found unsuitable for first line duties in Europe and relegated mainly to training, but also to Army Co-operation. However the Tomahawk was considered good enough for African front (where was sooner replaced with the Tomahawk Mk.II).

Installation: unzip and copy into your mod folder (DBW, UP, MODS etc. etc.)
FM for 4.09 included: copy and paste into mod main folder.

Tested under 4.10/DBW and 4.09/UP.2. Works also with: 4.12+ModAct 5, 4.13, CUP, VP Modpack and HSFX 7 (with this DiFFM installed: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,38980.0.html)

Note: on P-40-Cu late/Tomahawk Mk.I I've set the wing-mounted Mgs as cannon (so Weapons2 command). Convergence can be modified at your desire with no effect to fuselage guns. (thanks to Greybeard for the idea)

Note 2: for Tomahawk Mk.I 3d model you must choose GB/RAF as country in arming screen (works also with RCAF, RN, RAAF).

Plus 1, love these early versions. :) Not so much the flying characteristica themselves but the amazing Maddox cockpits...and the early P-40 Flying Tigers legacy. ;)
