The T-28D is an addon aircraft for Microsoft's Flight Simulator X with either Service Pack 2 or Acceleration.

The T-28 was initially created as a two seat trainer for the US Air Force with the first aircraft flying in 1949. The aircraft had a short production run with the last new T-28 delivered in 1958. The original A model had a miserly 800 horsepower, 7 cylinder radial engine and a two bladed prop. The Navy became interested in the aircraft and ordered 491 B models which had the considerably more powerful 1425 horsepower Wright Cyclone R-1820-86 9 cylinder engine. The C model followed a few years later and this was modified with a tail hook for carrier operation. A shorter prop was installed on the C to prevent prop strike. Some of the original A models were modified with a larger engine and became the D model. These D models saw combat in various regions around the world.

This aircraft is based upon the T-28D “Huff ‘n’ Puff” from Warbird Aviation at Archerfield. The aircraft has a 1,425 horsepower 9 cylinder Wright Cyclone radial engine with typical cruise speeds from 180 to 200 kts. Climb rates can approach 4000 fpm.

Also available as a separate package is the T-28B/C as flown by the US Navy.

Version 2.0 updates the original T-28D by adding a new ATTACK model which features guns, rockets and bombs, an armament panel and gun sight. Other changes in Version 2.0 include new virtual cockpit rain, icing and fogging effects, an improved animation manager, extra liveries and many other enhacements and fixes.

 

T28D Version 2.1 update includes:

  • Improved engine sounds
  • Prepar3D 2.0 versions included
  • Improved flight dynamics
  • Various minor bug fixes

Features

  • Native FSX model
  • Incredibly detailed model with full animations and completely clickable virtual cockpit
  • Silky smooth 3D gauges
  • Weapons systems (in ATTACK model) with launchable guns, rockets and bombs
  • Three different models. DUAL model contains front and rear cockpits. SOLO model contains front cockpit only for better framerates. ATTACK model is the same as the SOLO model but with six weapons stations, armament panel and gun sight.
  • Lovely 3D style landing lights
  • Fully adjustable interior panel lighting with individually switchable lights and intensity
  • Original period radio sets (modern transponder and autopilot available as 2D popups only)
  • 10 liveries
  • Genuine thumping radial engine sounds
  • Open canopy wind noise
  • Individual sounds for switches knobs etc.
  • Custom engine start routine for realistic engine starts (auto start also available)
  • Two-speed supercharger correctly modelled
  • Animations for wheel chocks and pitot covers
  • Animated pilot and copilot models which can be displayed or hidden
  • Virtual cockpit rain, icing and fogging effects
  • Exterior model structural icing effects
  • Realistic Prop Torque Effect for better flight dynamics
  • Wear and Tear modelling to simulate engine damage
  • In game Animation Manager for setting program preferences, weights, fuel and checklists
  • Demo version available to check performance on your system (visit www.antsairplanes.com)

This is an addon aircraft for Microsoft’s Flight Simulator X SP2. You therefore need either Microsoft's Flight Simulator X with Service Pack 2,  Acceleration or FSX Gold (which includes Acceleration).  The aircraft will not work with FSX RTM or SP1. The Trojan is a considerably detailed aircraft and therefore places a large load on your computer. I can only recommend that you download the demo version to test the performance of the T-28D on your system. The demo includes the Attack version of the T-28D and will give an accurate indication of how well the full version will work on your system.

OK, let’s start by saying “I don’t do reviews”. I think this is only my 2nd in the past 10 years, and the 1st one was inspired for a bad reason…”add on was so bad I felt totally ripped off.” But, I am happy to announce this is for the complete opposite reason….”I am completely blown away with this add-on”. I own a lot of add-ons, and these days most of them are good, but I expect them to be good based on the money I pay for them, especially when there are often very nice freeware offerings of high-quality. But this aircraft impressed me in two ways…outstanding quality for an unbelievable price.. I have no experience with the developer ANTS, nor have I read much about “Ants”, so I did not expect much. I gave it a 2nd look b/c the T-28 is one of my favorite aircraft and it is often ignored when it comes to things like this, such as sim aircraft and decent scale models. Everyone wants to make another P-51, or B737. SO just the fact that it is a T-28 got my attention. But how good could it be for under $20 bucks? Well the answer is surprisingly good in every way, better then good. The VC is awesome in everyway….perfect textures and level of functioning is above average. Everything works and sounds as it should. The overall sound inside and out is awesome. Love that big radial sound, especially the sound at altitude, cruise setting, from external spot shot. Wow, gave me goose bumps. Is it perfect? Well NO but what is..its a sim. My favorite livery of this aircraft has always been the Navy training orange/white theme, but once I got a look at one of the USAF polished aluminum liveries there is no turning back…out of this world. I have spent thousands on add-ons…purchase several per week for several years but I need to say that the textures as seen from inside the “pit” looking out over the wing is the best I’ve seen. It is perfect the way they simulated the high sheen of aircraft enamel and polished aluminum stretched over the stringers and wing structures. All the dimples…awesome. The flying experience is as good as it gets from a total immersion perspective, look, feel, sound….totally swept away. I can actually smell the oily steel of this military warbird..not kidding. And it flies like a dream, with a nice challenging take-off experience common with high HP, high torque military war birds of this error. I have not flown a T-28 but I’m a pilot and have flown a North American SNJ (AT-6), and it has a similar feel…very different from a Piper or Cessna 172. This add-on captures that feel with the torque pull, and wing dip on take-off if not totally on top of it and prepared. Trimming is very important. The landing feels authentic and you get this nice little stall buffet if your close to stall speed as the heavy duty gear hits the concrete. Really nice. It also has all those typical bells and whistles, and much more…nice package of extras. If I was to find fault in any of the flight model features I would say “It’s a lot hotter then ever expected in the performance department”, but then again I have heard this aircraft was a great trainer b/c if the neophyte aviator got into trouble all he would need to do is push the throttle to the firewall and this ship will climb its way out of anything..and yes, as advertised 4000 fpm climbs are the norm with this bird…really, really hot on take-off climb…maybe a little to good, but I could be wrong. I reach T/O speed so quickly that I often over rotate, as I completely miss the posted V1 and VR speeds and need to come out of full military power early if I want to keep it in the pattern. So in summary after spending thousands’ of dollars over the past 3 to 5 years on FSX add-ons, I have to give this one a very very big thumbs up in every way…actually better then advertised. Keep it up “ANTS”…don’t let this one get to your head. What else is in store..would love to see an F-4 Phantom…most prolific modern aircraft and not a single quality add-on available…hint, hint. If you like this sort of aircraft I would say it’s the best bang for the buck on the market with no corners cut for price. JJETMEC
