Thanks for pointing this out Freycinet,I had'nt realised the fairings could be raised or lowered,you learn something everyday and I had'nt realised this before.

I just thought we had two distinctly different aircraft here,those fairings completely change the profile of the Defiant,top stuff mate I appreciate the reply to my thread.

what about the end of the fuselage right before the tail, all the photo's show a regular even decent towards the tail, the one in game just drops down lower before the tail. what is the reason for this?

I've noticed that too, but I think it's related with a specific angle of view.

Notice the fairings are in the up position. In the down position there would be a definite change in the slope.

A better drawing, http://aircraftdrawingsdownload.com/files/defiant.pdf

No I'm talking about the rear of the fuselage by the tail it appears that it is a difference between a Defiant I and Defiant II, the II has the regular sloping fuselage.

Yeah,the model we have in COD has both fairings in the lowered position,I understand this now,I do hope that they make the Defiant flyable,and that if they do,they incorporate the lowering and rising of the fairings within the controls.

I can't believe I thought that there were different models,I just assumed that there was two diffrent aircraft marks,lol.

My sincere apologies to Luthier and team,how could I doubt you,you're aircraft are spot on.

They could perhaps implement the fairings as air-breaks: Up is off, down is on. One of the problems of the Daffy (and Skua) was that lowering the fairings for action would severely hit speed. Being slightly oldish, they would have problems keeping up with "modern" designs like the He 111 and Ju 88 as it was, lowering the fairings would really give them problems.

I really hope they make it flyable!

On further reading of my book'Boulton Paul Defiant by Mark Ansell,the fairings were incorporated,so that the air flow was'nt interupted through the rudder.

Apparantly they had major problems aerodynamically as soon as the turret was fitted.
