CFS Macro Opel Blitz Crane Track
CFS Macro Opel Blitz Crane-Half track. CFS Version of a WWII ground vehicle. Updated file with some corrections. The Opel Blitz was a 3 ton, 4x2 & 4X4, german truck, that saw service in World War II and post-war. This half-tracked version, equipped with crane, was used by the Luftwaffe ground crews in maintenance duties. Also are included two cargo versions, with and withouth canvas. Maultier (Mule) is the name given to series of half-tracked trucks used by Germans during World War II. They were based on Opel, Mercedes-Benz or Ford trucks. During 1941 Germans troops discovered that their wheeled transport vehicles were unsuitable for the muddy Rasputitsa conditions that marked the beginning and end of the Russian winter. Only halftracks were able to operate in these conditions, but removin

Instead, Germany began to build half-tracked versions of their Opel, Daimler-Benz and Ford trucks by removing their rear axles and placing new driveshafts connected to Panzer I track assemblies. The Panzer I was out of production at this point, and existing parts could be used for cost effective conversion of the trucks. Most conversions were to Opel trucks, which proved successful in service although they lacked the overall mobility of purpose-built halftracks. I have created this api macro with Easy Object Designer (EOD), Version 2. 0. 47 (Matthias Br ckner), to generate three static Opel Blitz Maultier, used by Luftwaffe on WWII. 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.
