Title: Potez 25 Lorraine/Jupiter/Salmson/TOE - update 01 [4.10]
Post by: Dreamk on June 07, 2012, 06:39:01 AM
There is no need for introduction for the Potez25 - it is a symbol for a whole period of the history of aviation. An incredible number of variants were developped with various engines and other modifications. It was a test bed for a number of equipments that became standard thereafter. For instance the TOE version was one of the very first planes to be equipped with an OPL reflex visor and on the Salmson engined version this was already part of standard equipment. Although, on export versions the equipment could vary, suited to the technical requirements/conditions prevalent in the destination country. The TOE version was litterally a "bomb truck" , but all these palnes were designed to operate in areas were aerial enemy activity was almost not existant - their survival in air combat was....let's say "limited".
About 20 Potez 25 Salmson, and maybe some Lorraine engined Potez 25 were directly delivered from French stocks to the Spanish, serving mainly in Northern Spain, and some Potez 25 Jupiter were acquired from Estonia. All were already badly worn out. At least one Potez25TOE was brought by a French defector to the Nationalist rebels inTetuan and sported thereafter the Nationalist crosses and black disks.
Note:
The Type D Internal vertical bomb rack, with its characteristic protrusion under the fuselage, will not appear on the QMB selection screen,  when the suitable armament is selected, but will appear on the model.

a link to 4 variants of templates for this plane, plus several pitifully few skins so far ... when making skins try and keep the variants well separate as there are differences between them all.

Thanks again Dreamk. I have a feeling these planes are going to be tumbling out of the skies in Spain, and later the Gran Chaco in the future. One had a dogfight with a Breguet 19 there.

Hi, Poltava. Giving you ideas are they? I'll include one as eye candy in the Santander [Bulldog] campaign. If the player makes it home, he'll see it parked. He might see another flying to and fro. I'll include the Koolhoven in an escorted bombing mission. I was using R5s. However, Koolhovens were used extensively on that front. I just finished re doing the Canaries campaign. Now the player flies a Vildebeest. All I need for it is a Nationalist skin.

cheers

Beautiful, only one problem - I can't install attached bombs (Spanish and French). In weapon loadout I have only default (and there is no bombs under wings).
What I've done wrong? :(
Regards,
LS

P.S. Sorry, it's my fault - I have unpacked archives in double folders (i.e. Arms_France one in another)
After correcting it - everything OK.
Thank You for help, leperemagloire

BTW - is there possibility to turn on markings on this plane? Or I must make a new skin? (I wanna have it in polish markings)

There is an option to use Polish markings if you download the templates. I can't recall offhand which variants, but several have Polish markings in template layers ... if you can't make skins from a template, I'm sure somebody will shortly make some in Polish markings ... maybe I will make some too once the whirlwind posting is over ... still more planes to come by the way ...

I attached my fix pack:
- Aerodynamic center moved to better position.
- Propeller 3D flipped for radial engines to match pictures and rotating direction. The other two engines should rotate in other direction since 3D propeller matches pictures. For Lorraine only propeller animation in classfile is wrong and for TOE also EM has wrong direction.
- Hier.him files cleaned and all holes between CF and engine or tail fixed.

Yugoslavian skin for Potez-25 Jupiter just like one Yugoslavian Royal Air Force had:

Croatian skin, Potez-25 Germans gave newly formed Croatian Air Force after capitulation of Kingdom Yugoslavia and capturing.
