Yes, I think that the team should make the spinner part of a British N17 field mod, in the ROF store.

It wasn't a spinner. It didn't spin.

It was called a cone de penetration (pardon my French) and was attached to the stationary crankshaft. Some Nieuport 17s had 'em, most didn't (Albert Ball's clearly did and he took it home as a souvenir when he left 60 squadron).

Interesting discussion of it here: http://www.theaerodr..." onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.theaerodr...com/forum/aircr … ation.html

Very nice info, HotTom. Well, then the ROF team should consider making the cone of penetration as part of a field mod for the British N17, in the ROF store.

Yes, that is exactly what I mean, Trooper. I suggest that the team consider the cone of penetration as part of a British N17 field mod, for purchase in the ROF store, not as part of what comes standard with the British N17 add-on. Like any field mod, you would be able to check what you want and leave off what you do not want.

If the team does make the cone of penetration a field mod, they may wish to consider one day making a personalization mod for cones of penetration, radiator covers, (for the 150 SPAD VII, for instance) and the like; so players can colorize or otherwise individualize their cones of penetration, radiator covers, and the like, in mods off.

Here is a pic of Bishop's spinner, a little worse for wear. It looks like it began life as a colander in the mess.

Sorry to post here, I know it's not the right place but the RFC Nieuport 17 topic got locked.

Just wanting to know, if possible, if the current existing weapons mods for the Nieuport 17 will also be available for the RFC Noop 17? I'm talking about the possibitly to mount a double overwing Lewis, or some fusées Le Prieur?

Has an information thread been started yet for the 1 1/2 Strutter for images and tables? Looking for same for the Roland C2a and the Halb d2 as well.

The dev's only tend to appeal for info if they think they don't have enough.

Anyone can start threads in the FM section though :lol:
