– FS2004 Douglas C-47 With Long Range Tanks

FS2004 Douglas C-47 Package with Long Range Tanks. This package offers the Douglas C47 in five WWII liveries and incorporates a Long Range Tank modification. Beaumont and Bitzer’s four-tank “no ALL tanks” and automixture modifications are also included, together with Dave Bitzer’s latest improved flight dynamics. The default FS2004 DC-3 is configured for three fuel tanks, whereas by design the C-47/DC-3 had four tanks. The C-47 was also designed to permit the installation of up to eight 100-gallon fuselage tanks so that the aircraft could operate over longer routes as needed for military service. With proper leaning of the mixture, 3200 nautical miles is possible in no-wind conditions. Typical circumstances in which such long range capability was sought included ferry delivery of new aircraft across the Atlantic or Pacific in wartime and extended search and rescue work where fueling facilities were scarce or non-existent.
