Hello again smile.gif

After the summer vacation I hardly found any time for FS - now it is getting a bit better. Manfred will release an FSX version of RAF Gutersloh, so stay tuned if you have FSX.

Some AI news. Mike Pearson has released the the very long awaited B-52, completing a model originally started by Jake Burrus. Furthermore he released a Fiat G.91 Gina and will release several other very much awaited aircraft - including some fitting this thread's theme - the coming weeks.
Nick Black has made a short reappearance from retirement and has released an AI Dassault Super Étendard (just getting an update, so download link is temporarily down).
John Young has - aside from the Harrier GR.3 on Charl's shots - released a Sea Vixen.
Mark Griggs has released a Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II and a Airbus A330 MRTT/KC30 Voyager and is - for the time being - taking a leave from AI development.
Miljan Korac has release a KAI KT-1B together with Mark Griggs and a Utva Lasta-95N.
Brian Franklin has released a Hawker Siddeley Nimrod.

You find all download links at The Owl's Nest Military AI Reference, which just happened to cross 2.500 listings this week.

This year has given us AI models like never before, and there are still months to go... smile.gif Some very cool aircraft are on peoples development lists, several officially announced like Mike Pearson's F-100, F-101, F-102, F-105 & F-106.
Cheers,
Martin

Mike Pearson certainly has hit his stride, they are coming thick and fast!
Just haven't seen too many flightplans for these offerings.

I now have a Cold War Military sim which just grew all by itself.
It got so big I had to make an entirely separate FS9 install for it!

Fictional.

GDR brought a pair of 727 in 1984.


In other dimension...F-19A Kestrel flying with spanish markings.


A soviet Mig-21MF took off with the SPRD rockets in Poland.

Nice screens .. funny I was not that far away from the Kestrel design with a possible what if ? I was pretty close , The 727 may also be not that far from the truth , many old hulls ended up in some off the stranges places.

B-25 in Russia...

I have the following numbers and typs of aircraft, used under Lend-Lease 1941-1945

Hawker Hurricane Mk. IIB/C: 2952
Supermarine Spitfire Mk. V/Mk. IX: 1331
Supermarine Spitfire P.R.-Marks: 9
North American NA 73 Mustang I: 10
Curtiss P-40B,C Warthawk: 195
Curtiss P-40E-N: 2.436
Bell P-400, Bell Aircobra P-39D-Q:4924
Bell P-63 Kingcobra: 2.421
Bell P-47D "Thunderbolt": 203

DeHavilland D.H. 98 "Mosquito": 1
Handley Page H.P. 52 "Hampden": 32
Douglas A-20 "Havoc: 3.125
North American B-25 "Mitchell: 870
Consolidated B-24 "Liberator" 1 and 7 rebuild after crash of american crews within Russia.
Consolidated PBY Catalina: 185
Curtiss O-52 Owl: 30
Vought OS2U Kingfisher: 2
Douglas C-47 "Skytrain": 709+3
Armstrong A.W. 41 "Albemarle: 14
Curtiss C-46 "Commando": 1
North American AT-6 Texan:84

These are 14.795 aircraft, from which 14.018 aircraft reach the USSR. Most of them were withdrawn from service in 1948. But, there are examples from some types. Some Airccobra were used by DOSAAF in the late 40s, and the C-47s are in use up to around 1960 in the arctic region of the USSR.

Russia build in the same time: aircraft: 112.100
Most numerous was the Iljuschin Il-2 with around 35.000

Hope, this may from some interest and help to understand the "B-25 in Russia."

Little known of the B-25 and its operations in Russia evening during the war tho strangely there is a well known and published colour photo which is not dated.
