HMS Drake. A heavy cruiser in the Royal Navy which served as a convoy escort during WW1. This Gmax model was based on a drawing obtained from the National Maritime Museum in London. By John MacKay.
The heavy cruiser HMS Drake served the British Royal Navy during WW1 as a convoy escort. On 2 October, 1917 she was torpedoed by U-79 off the north coast of Ireland and later sank after reaching Rathlin Sound.
This medium detail model was built using a copy of original plans that were obtained from the National Maritime Museum in London.
This model was built in gmax. Copies of the source files can be obtained from TurboSquid. These files are also available in 3ds and obj file format.
This model is for use in Microsoft's Flight Simulator X.
Unzip the files into a temporary directory. Place the various files in the different directories based on which folder they are found in. For example: Take the folder that is located in the folder titled "Place in SimObjects_Boats folder" and place it in the "Boats" folder that is located inside the "SimObjects" folder.
Player controlled HMS Drake.

Pressing the "L" key will fire all three different cannon salvos at the same time. The navigation lights should be turned on and off using the light switch that is available on the 2d cockpit panel.

This AI model works with AICarriers2 sample AICarriers cfg file entry:
unit.0=HMS_Drake_AI, 0, 0
(XX=the proper formation number)
Note: If the player-controlled HMS Drake is in the FS world with the AI HMS Drake, pressing the "AIM" buttons on the fire control panel will cause the aim animation to play on both models.
