Is there a way to add the P-39 (or any other plane) so I can select and fly it in the stock FB campaigns? I did a search in the forum and it sounds like there's a simple way to do it, but it wasn't clear.

Real quick. Go into DGEN folder,

-find "planes.dat" files
-open files (each file will be a different campaign :German (DE)fighter north, German(DE) fighter south, German (DE)Jabo, (DE)He-111, Russian fighter (RU) etc.)
-find the one you are looking for and open it, you will see the sub-campaigns (Moscow '41, Kursk, Berlin, etc.) listed.
-make sure plane types are appropriate (for example, if you open folder and see a list of a bunch of He-111's, you obviously didn't open the German fighter center file).
-type in the plane you want to add below the last plane in list (under Berlin, Moscow, etc.)
-make sure the plane is typed in exactly the way it is typed in in similar files (for example P_39Q10 must be typed exactly the same when adding it yourself to another file).
-it should now be selectable in drop down list in-game.

Hope this helps. If it works let me know, if it doesn't I goofed and will correct it.

Yes, thanks Hunde. I was tinkering around the DGen folder and remembered seeing something like this topic in the threads. Is adding the AEP planes more complicated ? Example, I wanted to add P-38 in a VVS campaign (obviously, it would be somewhat fictitious, he he..), can it be done ?

Yes you can do that. I made a whole campaign for the P-38 and another for the P-51. Make sure you add them like this for example.

P_39L
P_38J
P_51D20NA
