CFS Macro Ford G8T
CFS Macro Ford G8T. CFS Version of a WWII ground vehicle. The Ford G8T (Ford-6), was a 4x2, 2-ton truck developed by Ford Motor Company, used by the United States, the British Empire and the Red Army during World War II. Equipped with a 158in. wheelbase and the common 144in. by 80 in. cargo body, the Ford G8T was by far the most numerous commercial 1. 5t 4x2 truck and was delivered to Russia under the Lend-Lease Act from 1943 on. Together with his civilian ancestor, the 2G8T, from which he differed in the engine type and some minor modifications, the total amount of delivery sums up to 61, 000, making the Ford-6 the second most delivered truck. Like with most modern western vehicles, often technical problems arose due to the high compression and the pure Russian fuel quality. General chara

Engines of the Red Army site) I have created a api macro with Easy Object Designer (EOD), Version 2. 0. 47 (Matthias Br ckner), to generate four versions of Ford G8T, with and without canvas, painted as USAAF Ground Services and the russian Red Army on WWII. Some textures are based on pictures availables on WWII Drawings site, mastered by Vincent Bourgui on, Rochefort (Belgium) and www. o5m6. de, Engines of the Red Army site. This macro was tested only in CFS1 sceneries, but I believe that can work without problems in CFS2-3 and FS2000-2002. All mine API macros, could be included on objects libraries with crash detection (for CFS missions), but must be distributed with the original API-MACRO copyright.
