Title: Vultee V-1A - update 01 [4.10]
Post by: Dreamk on June 23, 2012, 12:45:10 PM
The two seaters pack would not really have been complete without this "three seaters" (though it often flew in Spain with a crew of 5) but single englined plane: The Vultee V-1 makeshift bomber.
2 versions are included in this mod - the original transport hastily equpped with bomb racks, used both  by the republicans and nationalists, then the Republican "bomber" after more complex transformations made in 1937, and the modified armed transport/occasional bomber used by the Nationalists
Of the 19 Vultee V-1s bought by the Spanish Republicans, only 12 managed to reach Spain, and were used by both sides as light bombers, couriers, and reconnaissance aircraft. 8 went into Republican service, the other 4 fell into Nationalist hands when they intercepted the intercepting the Republican vessel Mar Cantabrico on its way to Spain. They were used as makeshift fast bombers. In 1937, 5 Republican aircraft underwent huge modifications, including provision was for a protected dorsal gunner position, two machine guns in each wing and internal racks for eight 25kg bombs or four 50kg bombs. Together with the Delfin and Gamma, they were in fact the first aircraft to develop the concept of intruders attack planes. The modifications made on Nationalist aircraft in order to use them as bombers were less extensive. This aircraft had electrically an operated retracting landing gear, fully covered in flight, flaps and of was powered by a Wright-Cyclone engine similar as the one used by the Delfin and some high performance I-16 in Spain.

Thanks, Dreamk. I'd heard of the Vengance, but not this one. The one without a rear gunner would be excellent as civilian eye candy on the ground at airports. It was used by airlines, and executives. You could probably get away with using it right into the early 1960s.

Hi, mojojojo.  Cats do that too. One of their less endearing habits. Like bringing lunch home half dead. Then losing interest and wandering off to sleep.

 Back on topic. I've just been working on the outline for a Balaeric campaign. Stay tuned folks.

Alternative default skin and some basic skins for the Vultee series.

Drop the summer folder in Vultee V1/3do/Plane/Vultee.

The other folders drop in the Skins folder

These are just some stopgap skins made from agracier's template with an added metal.tga

Thank you for the skins, redfox. Nice.

I have some bug report on Vultee, but not only on her:

(http://www.sas1946.com/images/imageshit/img832/336/2406201210547.jpg) (http://www.sas1946.com/images/imageshit/download/832/2406201210547.jpg)

This fatty girl keeps on flying with a wing less.  ;D

But she's not the only one, Northrop Gamma does it too, and as I said in her thread, also the Grummna G-23, so it looks like this is kind of and "American bug"  ;D

If nobody gave this bug a name, I call it the ghost wing. I thought it was something only about wings, but I've just discovered other missing parts are not much trouble to fly for these shameless ladies.

The corrected Delfin must no longer do that - I have added a cap model and we checked with Epervier that it "worked" - The Vultee includes also a cap model but there may be a mistake in the hier.him (we had this problem with the Delfin initially - the mention "separable" acts on teh cap activation) I'll check that

On the template: I think it might be best if DreamK uploads the template he has, since I am away from home for a while and cannot upload anything. Besides, I don´t have a copy of the template with me anyway ...

I´ll be able to check mail every now and then, but not regularly. So for a template, better ask DreamK. He has a working template...

Agracier Hi! Hope you enjoy your trip! I have uploaded the template.
At the request of Agracier, who is out of reach of internet for the coming 2-3 weeks, I am posting his template of the Vultee V-1.
download link:
http://www.mediafire.com/?t5q9tki22k7u9w9

Please note that this is a preliminary template, suited to the Republican bomber version - the two other versions need small adjustments in the upper fuselage area.

Hello:

I seem to have a problem with the V1AN. The other two Vultees start to retract their landing gear just before rotation but the planes make it up anyway. The V1AN starts its retraction just a little bit sooner than that and thus bellies in.

I'm using the updated Balearic Islands map.

Is there some way to fix this?

Thanks in advance.

Bob

I'm using the updated Balearic Islands map.
I checked on the following maps: Crimea, Kuban, Smolensk, Normandy1 and this did not happen even at full load - We must wait for Agracier coming back from his vacation to see why teh Balearic map is different - when it's aircraft-related, the solution of such a phenomenon is generally not very difficult (moving slightly the z coordinate of the ClipLGear and ClipRgear in the GearR/L2 meshes) but here this seems to be map-related

Yes, it does12doze12.  Makes it obvious the plane started out as an airliner.

Dreamk:

Maybe you could test this out and see if it's just at my end. I'm using the Balearic map as I said. I'm on the airfield at co-ordinates E-4 and the take off direction is 55 degrees (NE).

Let me know if what you experiance if you would.

Thanks

There are also Italian arms files that are needed for some of DreamK's planes. The Breda is an Italian plane ... and aside from Spanish and Italian arms files, there are also Finnish, British, French, Russian and Dutch arms folders ... these last may not be necessary for the Breda, but it never hurts to have the whole set in your #DBW folder.

With some installations, you may need to add a prefix before the Arms pack folders, such as 00_Arms_Italy or +Arms_Italy instead of Arms_Italy
In anycase, install the complete, last updated arms packs. Links for all the Arms packs for the SCW planes are as follow
(for the Vultee V1 you'll need the Italy, Spanish and Russian arms packs):

The problem is not in the armament but in the racks. I looked at the classes and the spanish arms mods here do not have the racks for the vultee. There must be a original one that I cant find. It is looking for a SpMono_Rack and SpTwin_Rack that is not in these mods. I changed the racks to the FAA ones for now but would like the correct ones.

Another thing: are there any skins for this ugly brute?  ;)

I made a few for myself as a Japanese hack (of all things ... ha ha) and there is a rather basic template. Actually this is great plane for its whacky look ... there should be more skins ... and I was wondering about the payload as well ... last time I tried it, there were no bombs, nor cargo if I am not mistaken, correct? It could certainly use a payload ...

Can I ask where to download the parasol weapons pack? I reinstalled with all the new weapons packs in a few posts above, but that did not seem to help with the Vultee bombload - depending of course if there is one ...
