Martlet Mark I
The Martlet Mark I was aircraft originally ordered by France and Belgium. The Belgians ordered Martlets (Reference 10) which, according to Grumman records, were absorbed into the French order when Belgium fell. The Martlet (G-36A) was from the these two orders, which could not be delivered because of the fall of France.
Martlet Is came equipped with a Wright R-1820-G205A Cyclone engine with a single-stage, two-speed supercharger. The Cyclone was shorter than the Twin Wasp so the cowl was shorter in chord and did not have any cowl flaps, and with the overall length being the same (approximate) length as a Wildcat with a Pratt and Whitney engine, the distance between the wing and rear of the cowl was longer. This is true of all Cyclone powered Martlets/Wildcats. With the Mk.I, this distance was 22 inches (as measured on the FAA Museum’s sole surviving Mk.I). It has to be mentioned here, that the single row Cyclone had either baffle plates or air intakes between the cylinders. This forced air over the cooling fins and cooled the engine more efficiently. All single row radials in a cowl were configured like this. The twin row Twin Wasp did not need the baffles for cooling.
All Martlet Mk.Is had the F4F-3 straight pitot tube and a Hamilton Standard Hydro-matic uncuffed prop. Mk.Is had fixed wings and 4 wing guns, 46” and 117” from the centerline of the fuselage with 430 rounds per gun. Otherwise, these Martlets were similar to F4F-3Bs.
Contrary to popular belief Martlet Is did go to sea. They were equipped with hooks, but the holdback was not fitted. Serials included AL231-AL262, AX824-AX829, BJ507-BJ527, and BJ554-BJ570.
Lost at sea whilst being delivered were Martlet I serials BT447-BT456 (Reference 10, 11).

Martlet Mark II
The Martlet II was the first Martlet actually ordered by the British Purchasing Commission for the FAA. The contract was for 100 F4F-4A equivalent aircraft with folding wings and 3 guns per wing with 240 rounds per gun. The first ten Mk.IIs were delivered to F4F-3 standards with fixed wings and 4 wing guns. These 10, Serials AM954 to AM963 were redesignated as Mark IIIs (References 2,4,7,8,10,11). These are covered in the Mark III section. The remaining Mark IIs were differentiated by the pitot tubes. AM964 to AM 999 had a unique pitot. This pitot was located on the port upper wing, near the inner edge of the aileron. This pitot angled to the rear and upwards. These aircraft were the only Wildcat/Martlet to use this pitot. The remaining Mark IIs, serial range AJ100 to AJ153 used the standard F4F-4 pitot.
The Martlet II (from this point onwards, I am not speaking of the first 10 Mk.IIs which became Mk.IIIs) were powered by a Pratt and Whitney R-1830-90 Twin Wasp single stage two speed supercharged radial. This engine had the magnetos on the rear of the engine, next to the carburetor. The cowl was the standard chord Pratt and Whitney cowl, which had one large cowl flap on each side. The distance from the wing leading edge to the rear of the cowl is 14 5/8 inches on all Pratt and Whitney powered Martlets/Wildcats. The cowl did not have the carb intake on the top, and the intercooler scoops were deleted. The propeller was a cuffed Curtiss Electric three blade, with a domed (similar to the dome found on P-43s and P-47s with Curtiss props) hub. All had folding wings with 3 guns per wing and had 240 rounds per gun. Some aircraft in the AM serial range had an extended lower fairing, which may have had something to do with the fuel system; AJ series aircraft did not have this extension. Serials for Martlet Mk.II are AM964-AM999 and AJ100-AJ153. Aircraft lost at sea whilst being delivered were AM954, AJ105, AJ106, AJ138-AJ145, and AJ124-AJ126.

These are great planes, I wish that they would play in DBW, but right now they don't. 

I especially like to fly (in 4.09) the Martlet Mark I as it just feels right for an early version of the Wildcat!

These planes don't work with UP3.0, in combination with DBW1.71 and 4.10.1 :(

This is normal!
This Mod was made in 2009. It is done to the 409 because it uses a Diff_FM_409.

It should work normally as it's based off the F4Fs all around. If not, I'll see what I can do to help. ;)

Riken,

I enjoyed flying these Martlets in 4.09 but they don't work in 4.101 or DBW.   They would be a very welcome addition to DBW.   There are a number of us that would appreciate anything you could get them working 4.101 and DBW.

Thanks in advance ... TS
