The LancaStar  in Atlantic Air Combat™

The presence in AAC™ of a design mimicking the British Lancaster (and variants) is due to the late use of Lancasters and Lincolns  bombers by Argentina and of its ASW derivative, the Shackleton, by both the Royal and the South African Air forces.   All AAC™ variants have similar performances, share the same bomb bay and therefore do not respect original details.  The AR683B7 and variants will be available and referred to under the following colors and designations :

AR683B7 LancaStar Bomber standing for the Lancaster B.I 400 gal fuel tank in bomb bay (optional)
AR683M3 LancaMar ASW standing for the Lancaster MR.III 400 gal fuel tank in bomb bay (removable)
AR694B2 LincolnStar Bomber standing for the Lincoln B.II 400 gal fuel tank in bomb bay (optional)
AR696AS ShackleStar ASW standing for the Shackleton MR.II 400 gal fuel tank in bomb bay (removable)
AR696EW ShackleSky AEW standing for the Shackleton AEW exclusive to the game AI
