Welcome back for another Forgotten Hope 2 update.
This week the Luftwaffe gets a much-needed boost in the form of their primary fighter aircraft, the Messerschmitt Bf109E "Emil". This variant, the Bf109E-7/Trop, was a common sight on the airfields and in the skies of the North Africa theatre.
The Bf109E-7/Trop was an iteration on the Bf109E-4/Trop, adding a fuel tank slung under the fuselage to extend its range -- a useful addition for long range desert patrols. The Trop designation denotes that the air intake systems were re-engineered to maintain reliablity and performance in tropical climates.
This aircraft is armed with two MG17s mounted on the nose firing through the propellers, and one 20mm automatic cannon mounted in each wing.
The model was created by AceS and Toddel, skillfully skinned by Toddel with wheels by Rad.
It was exported and coded by ctz.
Of course, these aircraft need a place to recuperate and rearm. Digital Assassin created this hangar based on references of the hangar at Castel Benito, Tripoli. Additionally we have a static Stuka undergoing mechanical work created by Lobo from the original model by K96.
