Allied side, neither paras nor glider.

Recommended Posts

So I just looked at the code. 

The C-47 will only operate as a glider tug in 1944 or later.  Before that date it will only use paratroopers and only if at a "_Dropzone" location.

The LI-2 will only operate as a glider tug in 1943 or later.  Before that date it will only use paratroopers and only if at a "_Dropzone" location.

Otherwise I see no problems.  Other than those restrictions, the code is the same for the Allieds as the Germans.

The missions dates are OK (we are in 1944, december) and I have _Dropzone locations.

I saw that there is a line for the C_47 in the payloads.dcg file but not in the allpayloads.dcg file. Is it normal.

Thanks Sir.

Have a good day.

I've found more than a few planes missing payloads in the allpayloads.dcg file (which came much later).  It's possible that if the default payload gets over-written in the payloads.dcg file, there's no way to put it back because it's not in the allpayloads....

Added a line about C_47 in the allpayloads.dcg file and put the modified file in the campaign folder.

BLENHEIM4                                B 4x250
C_47                                               B 28xPara
CantZ506B                                  B 12x50

Going to test it as soon as this evening session and let you know.

Have a good day.

I ran a couple missions using the Normandy '44 scenario.  I saw one C-47 with a glider in one and two C-47s drop paratroopers in another. 

So I don't understand why you're not getting any.
