GFA LOCKHEED HUDSON FREE EXPANSION PACK FOR FSX
This expansion package adds the following 4 new aircraft as requested by our valued customers, to the existing GFA Lockheed Hudson stable:
Hudson Mk III (2 new aircraft):
• Hudson Mk III Military version. This is the dedicated military version of the Mk III. The aircraft have the small engine cowlings and does not have a ventral turret.
• Hudson Mk III Civilian version. Same as the military version but without armament. This is the Hudson version used by Adastra Aerial Surveys.
Lodestar Model 6 (2 new aircraft).
This aircraft is totally new. The fuselage is longer than that of the Hudson and the tailplane is raised above the fuselage. The main wing surface is also a bit larger than that of the Hudson resulting in a different-looking wing profile. The aircraft has no armament and was mainly used as transport during and after WWII. The interior of this aircraft is in many respects similar to that of the Hudson.
• Model 6 military version. The military version has a 3rd crew member as the radio operator and the main cabin is fitted with benches to seat parachute troops. A parachute ripcord cable is running along the entire length of the cabin ceiling. (Yes, you can drop “Para bats” but more on that later)
• Model 6 civilian version. The civilian version does not have the radio operator and the main cabin is similar to that of the Super Electra included in the Hudson package.
If you are familiar with our Hudson you will find your way around and inside the cockpit easily.
The installation of these new aircraft into FSX will be into separate folders but you must have the original GFA LH HUDSON packages Parts 1 to 4 installed to use the new aircraft.
