This is a repaint of the Manfred Jahn Douglas C47. C-47 Skytrain Exterior Base Pack 1.0 required (C47BASEPACK.ZIP), optionally also the interior model tweak (C47_INTERIOR.ZIP). The paint is fictitious. There was however a Bloch 220 with a similar painting. These airplanes flew for the Vichy government in the unoccupied France from 1940 to 1944. By B. Lechner.
