You are the author PhiHL so I have to ask you.

Can I include this in =JFC=mods when I update those?

But never used them in combat
Are you sure?

Wikipedia :
Ils firent quelques actions de guerre aux mains d'une escadrille polonaise (le Groupe Varsovie GC I/145), qui comptabilisa une douzaine de victoires homologuées sur cet avion. Le commandement polonais avait passé outre à l'interdiction de combattre sur cet appareil. Le cran, l'héroïsme et l'habileté individuelle des pilotes ont permis ces victoires.

They made some actions of war at the hands of a Polish squadron (Group GC I/145 Warsaw), who comptabilisa a dozen certified victories in this aircraft. The Polish command had disregarded the prohibition of fighting on this unit. The guts, heroism and skill of individual drivers have these wins.

Eager to grab my dirty hands upon this long awaited Birdie.
So let's hunt some Jerry-Cans.
Thanks a bunch for sharing

Update: Flies like a charm, it's my fav atm. amongst the francophoniques.
Though that damn Do17 kept pulverizing me, must learn to shoot with less
then Mk108. Weekend fun.
Reduced saturation & dynamics on the default skin a bit, not that hard to accomplish.
A bit dull and now it fits perfect.

JFC=PhilHL, thanks for this plane. When it has a cockpit, I'd like to write a short campaign for it. I only have access to online references though. I live in Korea. However, the necessary maps exist. Most of the other necesssary planes exist, so it should be relatively easy to do a short campaign set in June 1940. I'll see if I can find out some stuff about this Polish squadron online. Most of them are quite well documented.
What airfield did they fly from?


[EDIT]  After finishing a mission for a Chinese Bre 19, I did a bit of research. Mions airfield, where the Polish Caudron Escadrille was based is in Southern France. So, It's not on any IL2 map. Southern France is hilly, like Spain. If I did the mini campaign on a Spanish map, would it be a total immersion killer? How keen are people to suspend disbeleif a little?

cheers

Air war in the battle of France is always needing more models! The Caudron is one of those  that must be there.
