History

Heinkel's He 219 Uhu is undoubtedly one of the most advanced aircraft to emerge from World War II. Conceived solely as a gun platform to serve as a defensive night fighter, the plane featured a bubble-top cockpit that was well forward, affording the pilot superb visibility. The cockpit was equipped with ejection seats, and was exceptionally well laid out. All controls were easy to reach and identify. Combined with the tricycle landing gear, this plane was truly a "pilot's aircraft" and was very easy to fly. It was stable and predictable, exactly what one would expect from a plane with the Uhu's intended purpose. The earlier versions were adequately powered by the Daimler-Benz DB 603A, and had good rates of climb and acceptable top speeds approaching 400 mph. However, later versions of the He 219 were much heavier, and because the more advanced, powerful engines were in short supply, these variants suffered in performance.

The He 219 was a superb and lethal gun platform and the later versions packed as many as eight cannon, including the potent 30mm "Schrage Musik" which fired upward into a bomber's belly at an oblique angle. These accompanied as many as six forward-firing cannon. The "Uhu" was absolutely devastating to any aircraft that came into range of its guns. This was accomplished through the use of radar, a new technology. Ground-based stations would direct the night fighter to the bomber stream, and when in range, the Uhu's radar operator would then take over and guide the pilot to within 100 meters of the target. The bristling antennae were ugly and added a lot of drag, reducing the aircraft's ultimate top speed substantially. But without the radar the plane would have been useless at night, and since the Uhu was still about 150 mph faster than the Allied four-engine bombers, this was really not a handicap. Some of the latest versions were used to track, hunt down, and kill the Mosquito bombers, which were a much more challenging quarry than the lumbering four-engine craft comprising most of the night fighter's prey.

In the end, the He 219 fell victim to bad decision-making and was too little, too late. But it was the most advanced aircraft for its time, signaling the shape of things to come.

Customer Reviews
TROPICALSIM - ALBUQUERQUE INTL KABQ MSFS
Eric
For a Payware airport this should be a self install rather than a manual extract to proper file location. After follow the directions from this developer scenery still fails to load. This try of scenery really is meant for location on AvSim. If developer reaches out for better install instruction; or better yet, how about a .exe file extension for auto install.
LATINVFR - AIRBUS A321NEO MSFS
David
Very good performance and aerodynamics and a surprising product. The plane is not so far from Aerosoft and PMDG standards.
SLH SIM DESIGNS - LA DÉSIRADE AIRPORT TFFA MSFS
bernard
Very good scene my friend, I love your work, keep up the good work, the Caribbean comes to life on MSFS.
HIFI TECH - ACTIVE SKY CLOUD ART FSX P3D3-5
Pierre-Olivier
Flying only in VR , ASCA combined with Active Skyv (meteo engine) is a "must have". Huge diversity of clouds , real time clouds texture, the immersion is perfect and the impact is very low even if the clouds layer is covered.
SOUTH OAK CO - EMERGENCY LIGHTS - USA MSFS
Mark
Adds life and drama to the night and I especially appreciate that there are multiple emergency light patterns used. Highly recommended, especially given the wide coverage area.
CLOUDSURF ASIA SIMULATIONS - MEGA MANILA SCENERY FOR MSFS
Mark
Well crafted, with good night lighting. Includes good coverage of Manila's highrises. Works great with the freeware Manila mods in my collection. Highly recommended.
TABURET - C.AMERICA CARIBBEAN S.AMERICA GA TRAFFIC MSFS
Mark
Quite effective at adding a bit of life to the surrounding skies. The traffic density is quite believable, occasional and not too busy, and the models are good. This is a bargain given the vast area covered. Highly recommended!
TABURET - SINGAPORE MALAYSIA 10 M DEM MSFS
Mark
After flying the Malaysian part of the Malaysian Peninsula, I can report that this package makes the mountains look great. The lowlands no longer randomly undulate, and both the flowing water and water bodies align well with this DEM. Only the cities still suffer from random lumps and spikes, hence my awarding only four stars, though I can understand why the author might avoid cities, as they have done with the airport. Performance was also excellent; I didn't notice any drop in frame rate. I highly recommend this package as it is a massive improvement over the default mesh.
MLD SCENERY - LRIA - IASI INTERNTIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Ovidiu

ality and performance is really good.

A few years ago I flew in a Cessna 182 as a co-pilot with my friends, and we took off and landed at this airport. Ever since then I been waiting to see this airport in the game. Thank you so much!
