F27 Friendship vs Combiplane? I donīt get it.
« on: February 25, 2014, 03:13:04 PM »
I donīt get it. Why did Fokker in the end of the 50s release two planes with the exact same stats, except one is more expensive than the other.

Fokker F27 Mk 200 Friendship was just released, and has the exact same range, pax capacity, fuel consumption, payload and crew as another model released the same day: Fokker F27 Mk 400 Combiplane.

What am I missing?

The Combiplanes are cargo and passenger aircraft. Cargo isn't in the game yet, so at the moment it doesn't make sense. As soon as there is cargo, the two different versions will make sense.

No one has put in the feature request yet for cargo :)

We don't have solid numbers for realistic cargo demand like we do for passengers. It's been on the long-term to do list for years now. I have always had a dream of flying some ridiculously old inefficient planes out of Africa cargo-only myself.
