Wikipedia on line) I have created this api macro with Easy Object Designer (EOD), Version 2. 0. 47 (Matthias Br ckner), to generate a static Type 98 APC So-Da, used by Imperial Japanese Army and Marines 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.
