Sky Fighters V - "the Good Weather is Lasting" is posted.

two times six new missions, from May 18 to May 31, 1940, twelve new tracks, all the used skins.

I was planning to finish the campaign with this fifth chapter, but the pack is 50 Mb so, there will be a chapter VI - "The Last Mission".

The downloading links are the following:
- Sky Fighters I et II (109 Mb) (http://www.simulation-france-magazine.com/download.php?op=mydown&did=682)
- Sky Fighters III (27 Mb) (http://www.simulation-france-magazine.com/download.php?op=mydown&did=793)
- Sky Fighters IV (33.6 Mb) (http://www.simulation-france-magazine.com/download.php?op=mydown&did=865)
- Sky Fighters V (47.5 Mb) (http://www.simulation-france-magazine.com/download.php?op=mydown&did=921)

For users having a low speed connexion, "light" packs are available (without skins and tracks):
- Sky Fighters I et II (328 kb) (http://www.simulation-france-magazine.com/download.php?op=mydown&did=683)
- Sky Fighters III (222 kb) (http://www.simulation-france-magazine.com/download.php?op=mydown&did=792)

- Sky Fighters V (490 kb) (http://www.simulation-france-magazine.com/download.php?op=mydown&did=920)

Each new chapter replaces the last mission of the previous one (to link them together) and update the files in accordance with user comments sent on the forum or by email to the address given in the read-me.

From the ReadMe:

Sky Fighters
V €" The Good Weather is Lasting

Thank you for downloading this campaign. We hope that you€ll enjoy playing it.
It was developed for the Ubisoft software, IL2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles + Ace Expansion Pack + Pacific-Fighters. A merged installation of the software is necessary to run it. It was developed with version 4.05m of the software, but it should work with later versions.
The campaign Sky Fighters is based on the book Chasseurs du Ciel written in 1941 by Captain Accart, on his hospital bed. Captain Accart was leading the first flight of the GC-I/5 (first fighter squadron, in the fifth wing), equipped with Curtiss Hawk 75 (P-36).
Sky Fighters V is extending Sky Fighters IV.
Sky Fighters IV is extending Sky Fighters III.
Sky Fighters III is extending Sky Fighters II.
Sky Fighters II groups the two first chapters of the book. To run the campaign, the installation of Sky Fighters II + Sky Fighters III + Sky Fighters IV is required. Sky Fighters can be downloaded on the main web sites about war-bird simulation, and on Simulation France Magazine (www.simulation-france-magazine.com, click on <downloads> and <campagnes/missions kalaluth&gthttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. No use downloading Sky Fighters I, for the chapter two is in fact grouping the two first chapters. Many modifications were asked by the first users, leading to a complete update of most of files.
This is an historical campaign, about the fights held by the GC-I/5 during the €œPhoney War€ and from May 10th to 14th, 1940.

Contents, Installation.
Before installation of any new campaign, I€m used to make a back-up copy of the following directories: €˜missions€ and €˜user€. This is a potential return ticket, consuming few time and disk space. I recommend it before installing this campaign
For the installation, just unpack the files and copy it in the right directory (default directory is c:\program files\Ubi soft\IL2-sturmovik Forgotten Battles).
Files are installed in the following directories:
- Missions \ Campaign \ DE \ Chasseurs_du_ciel: campaign files, from German side.
- Missions \ Campaign \ DE \ Chasseurs_du_ciel \ Videos: Introduction videos, from German side
- Missions \ Campaign \ FR \ Chasseurs_du_ciel: campaign files, from French side.
- Missions \ Campaign \ FR Chasseurs_du_ciel \ Videos: introduction videos, from French side.
- PaintSchemes \ Skins \ B-239: skins for B-239. I don€t know the author of the basic file. This file was slightly modified, to add plane numbers, from 1 to 13.
- PaintSchemes \ Skins \ B5N2: these Chance Vought, dressed for the Aéronavale were made by Tcha¯ka too.
- PaintSchemes \ Skins \ Bf-109E-4: Thank you and congratulations to MacWan and Zargos for these superb skins, adapting the Bf-109 aspect to what it was in 1939-40.
