Romanian WW1 Aircraft Skin Pack
« on: May 03, 2021, 06:35:35 AM »

This is a skin pack for the Romanian planes of WW1 to 1920 I made seeing how there are next to no WW1 Romanian skins. The skins are based on descriptions from various modelling magazines, sites and original photographs. The zip can be downloaded here: https://www.mediafire.com/file/odskn1av5s7sprm/RO_Skins.zip/file

Pack Number 2 is also done, more info on the second page. It can be downloaded here: https://www.mediafire.com/file/zo0yhx7ixam0dvd/RO_Skins1.zip/file

The pack contains the following skins:
-Nieuport 11, unknown pilot


-Nieuport 11 number 865, flown by Sergent Henri Tresch of Nieuport 3 (N.3, Romanian-French) squadron


-Nieuport 11 "Bm"(?), part of Nieuport 1 (N.1) squadron, unknown pilot


-Nieuport 11 number 1534, flown by Captain Vasile Craiu of Nieuport 10 (N.10) squadron in the summer of 1917


-Nieuport 11 number 993, flown by Sublocotenent Marin Popescu of Nieuport 11 (N.11) squadron (one of the Romanian aces of WW1 with 5 air victories, including an observation balloon shot down using "Le Prieur" rockets)


-Nieuport 17, generic skin


-Nieuport 17 number 1313, flown by Plutonier Ion Muntenescu of Nieuport 11 (N.11) squadron


-Nieuport 17 number 4027, flown by Captain Vasile Craiu in 1918 (he died in a crash on 24 august 1918 while flying on this plane)


-Nieuport 24bis, unknown pilot


-Farman F.40, unknown squadron


-Farman F.40 "Angela", part of Farman 6 (F.6) squadron (Sublocotenent Dumitru Bădulescu flew on this aircraft on several missions, he was an air observer and one of the other Romanian aces of WW1 with 5 confirmed and 3 unconfirmed air victories)


-Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter, part of Sopwith 12 (S.12) squadron, autumn 1917


-SPAD VII, flown by Atanase "Tase" Rotaru, 1919


-SPAD VII "Jannette" number 70.., flown by Captain Vasilescu, 1920


-SPAD XIII, a more generic skin based on photographs of various Romanian SPAD XIIIs


-SPAD XIII number 1105, unknown squadron


-SPAD XIII, flown by Captain Friedrich Rostoski (an Austro-Hungarian pilot that later served in the Romanian Air Force)


-Breguet 14B2, received from the French during the war of 1919


-Fokker D.VII MAG number 93.18, one of the MAG Fokkers captured from the Hungarian Red Air Force in 1919


Hope you like the skins :)

Cool, I wish I'd had these when I did a Rumanian WWI campaign a couple of years back. For a Bulgarian pack; the Maltese crosses can be altered
 to look right. I've done a couple of missions for a Bulgarian campaign in Salonika. The player will be flying the AGO CII, Roland DII, Albatroa DIIs, and DIIIs. Looks like they had a post WWI conflict with Hungary. I'll check that out later.

EDIT: I did check it out. There is a good Wikipedia article, and a map. The Hungarian Soviet government had some Antaras. The Romanisns had two air units. The Caucusus map has the exact location. So, I'll do a short two seater campaign. Expect to wait more than a couple of weeks though.

cheers

Thank you all for the comments! :)

And to David Prosser, yeah I know that Romanian Carpathian campaign, I played it back when you made it. I'm playing right now again with my new skins but there seems to be some problems with it, maybe because of the new version of the mod... Regarding the Bulgarian Salonika campaign, that sounds interesting, that is another rather forgotten front of WW1 so it's cool to see.

And about that Romanian-Hungarian war if I may help with the types of aircraft:
-Hungary was using the Fokker D.VII (MAG) and Aviatik (Berg) D.I as fighters, UFAG/Phonix C.I and Hansa-Brandenburg C.I as reconaissance/bombers;

-Romania was using Nieuports as fighters (couldn't find much info on what types but probably N17 and N24bis as the older aircraft were left behind and didn't participate in the war), Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter and Breguet 14 as reconaissance/bombers besides these planes Romania also used captured ones as it had few planes participating in the war, so it used whatever planes it captured and didn't need a lot of repairs those being Hansa-Brandenburg C.I, UFAG/Phonix C.I, LVG (only 1 captured no mentioned type, probably a C.VI left behind by the Germans) and Fokkers (though it's rather unclear if these were used but probably they were if they didn't require much repairs), Romania also captured some 16 Bergs but again I don't know if they were used. Also you mentioned 2 Romanian squadrons but I found info about 3 squadrons, part of the newly formed 5th Aviation Group these were the S.12, N.7 and B.2, former S.2 (S - Sopwith, N - Nieuport, B - Breguet).

PS I was also thinking on making some more skins, some of these being for aircraft used in the war of 1919

What problems are you having with the Rumanian campaign? I checked Wikipedia. It only mentioned Hungary having a few captured Antaras from Odessa. The French destroyed their other planes according to the article. I guess my Rumanian pilot will be commanding a squadron of Breguet bomber/recce machines. The war was quite short. So, I guess 5-7 missions would cover it.  I finished a recconnisance mission last night. Thanks for the info on Hungarian planes.


cheers
