This addon is a model of a Russian aerosled, a vehicle developed around WWII for use as a lightly armoured snow-traversing vehicle. The sleds were powered by a rear-mounted propellor, and could be turned using the front skis in the manner of a snowmobile. They often had a gun mounted on the front, but could also be used for recreational purposes. Find more info here.
This is apparently the author's first addon, and I should stress that this is a beta. If this is the case, the author shows a lot of promise and I hope he keeps on churning out the goods.
The model is excellent, with the propellor fully animated. The skin, too, is highly accurate. Unfortunately the author has not yet managed to get the front skids to turn because of limitations within OFP, but hopefully this is something that can be remedied, and it is certainly nothing major.
I can guarantee you that this addon really is as fun as it looks, and for such a pitiful filesize it's really worth a try just to zoom around Winter Nogojev in for a while. It would definitely liven up any mission it is found in, but unfortunately AI gunners will not target vehicles with the machine gun to my knowledge.
Appart from a few small niggles as you would expect from a beta version this addon works very well, and hopefully the full version will not take too long to arrive. Watch this space.
