Request: Foreign Hudsons
« on: September 22, 2021, 03:30:29 PM »

Would anyone be interested in doing some skins for the Lockheed Hudson, mainly for the Chinese and Brazilian operators?

1. The Brazilian Air Force used the Hudson for ASW and convoy escort missions, along the Brazilian Coast during WW2 - so it would fit perfectly in the Natal map, that we have in the game. Some sub-chase missions are to be expected  ;).

2. The Chinese Air Force used the Hudson as a light bomber (it was set to be a complement/substitute for the SB bombers supplied by the URSS), during the conflicts against the Japanese. As a observation, the Chinese A-29 didnĀ“t possess the dorsal turret (at least in the photos and profiles that I saw, which are very hard to find) - but since we only have the version with the turret, let's use it, right?

Some links:

And here are a couple of pictures:

At some point in the past there was a version of the Hudson called CAF-Hudson without a turret.  The default skin was for a Chinese aircraft.  I think C Watson and others created it. You might be able to find it at Patrulla Azul - IL2 Free Modding.

The CAF Hudson is in the Multi Engine section at the old Free IL2 Modding site.

The CAF Hudson works in BAT(413), just make sure that you use the '409-412' FM
that comes with the download.
Note:
The model still needs some work, the dorsal gun position is non-functional.
