Title: Loire 70
Post by: Dreamk on October 25, 2020, 02:24:30 PM
An 8-man long-range heavily armed maritime reconnaissance and torpedo-bombing flying-boat designed to a 1932 French navy requirement, the prototype Loire 70 made its maiden flight on 28 December 1933. However the development of the aircraft met with problems demanding a redesign of the tail and of the defensive positions. It's only in June1937 that began the delivery to Escadrille E.7 at Bizerte-Karouba of the 7 production aircraft, in addition to the prototype. From the beginning of hostilities, in September 1939, the Loire 70s patrolled the Mediterranean until three of four surviving machines were destroyed in an Italian air raid on their base on 12 June 1940. Nothing was heard subsequently of the surviving flying-boat.

The "Open Cockpit" command will move the gunners and the observer to their fighting positions.

You'll need my news French bomb pack for this plane

The link for the plane

Whoever has problems with "white glass effect" instead of transparent glass, download this fix made by Hubberrantz for the Loire130M, that will also work here:

Air.ini addition:

Feel free to finalize and upgrade this plane where needed.

The plane has been tested in 4.122 modact 5.30, so will probably run smoothly also in BAT
