HS 748/ATP Freighters
« on: March 18, 2020, 12:06:29 PM »
With the end of series production of the beloved 748 will we now see the Freighter conversion, the cargo door of which was also used on the ATP.  Several examples of the 748 freighter are still flying (Canada)  as are about 16 ATP versions (mostly in Sweden)?

I don't believe that these models are in the game currently.

Could post as a feature request if you have sources for any data on these?

Extremely galling to say the least to see the ATR freighters appear in the game just as I am having to put 14+ year old ATPs up for sale when I could be converting them to freighters!!!

Wouldn't be so pee'd off about this if the illustration in use for the ATP in the game wasn't a damned freighter!!!!  Just rubbing salt in the wounds.
