9. For every career a file that defines plane classes for this career can be created. File name is ClassesNnX.dat, where NnX is career ID, like DeS for Geman Stuka. It is a text file that overrides default plane classes for this career, the format is:

PLANE ROLE,
for example:

FW_109A4 FIGHTER
FW_109A5 FIGHTER

the following roles are supported:

FIGHTER = escort, intercept, recon missions
LIGHT = same as fighter, "soft" ground targets like trains can be attacked.
TANK = soft targets + tanks, not antiship or anti bridge.
JABO = scramble, recon and all ground attack missions
ALL = all missions, fighter and ground attack
GROUND = only ground targets, suitable for bombers or ILs


Can someone explain how to create the above file & where it goes exactly?

"An attack against a unit of Flying Fortresses was something like controlled suicide...Sometimes 50, Sometimes 80 machine guns were firing at you... You attempted to close your eyes & continue to fire, Frightened to death, Frightened to death."

I tried what I thought was the right way to do it - I created a ClassesRuF.dat file and put a single line:-

P-39N LIGHT

but I don't know what to do after this

Thanks for any enlightement

i dont think you do anything after that, The DGEN engine takes over

But when I go into the campaigns screen in FB there's nothing there about P-39s that I can see, so I think there must be some final step that I'm missing...

I don't think you anything on the campaigns screen, This file changes the type of missions you'll fly with that aircraft, It works in the background.
