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.

Hannes
Well - I haven't seen such poor ground textures for a while. It really calls for an urgent update.
FSDG - ST LUCIA TLPC MSFS

Overall good scenery in a beautiful location. I still think there is an opportunity here to add some more features (Well known surrounding buildings, roads etc.)

Very well detailed city and surrounding areas. Everything is done with great attention to detail. I advise you to look at the night illumination of the city and attractions-it looks exciting! Thank you for your great work in creating a beautiful Siberian city!
GODZONE VF - GODZONE - REAL NEW ZEALAND DUNEDIN FSX P3D

Another great Airport from GodZone. Excellent detailing, great frame rates and a must have for those Queenstown - Dunedin - Christchurch hops! Pleased I bought it.

Needs some work to be ready for primetime. Could potentially be a very nice add-on, but not until they fix several issues.
BIJAN HABASHI - 4 SEASON PACK V5.02 - MSFS
Ath
This is arguably the most value-for-money addon in all of MSFS at the moment. The dedication of the developer, who is continuously improving the product with weekly updates, is amazing. The feedback and support he/she provides is amazing. The product itself is amazing and it makes MSFS so much better. It's a must have addon at a super reasonable price and that's the end of it.

Chris
Just incredible!! I must have bought/currentl-
y own hundreds of addons's over the years of simming. Ranging from the so called top end "T2G, Fly Tampa, MK, Orbx" down to single person teams. This product is most certainly within my top 3 all time and if only I flew there more often would likely be number one. I truly have a great big smile every time I fly into here. Everything about this product is spot on. Performance, accuracy, modelling, textures. Its details like the boneyard aircraft with mold/dirt on them near RWY33 that make this work. Paulo I so wish you would branch out wider! Your work needs to be seen by many more.
ACO DESIGN STUDIO - TAIWAN SONGSHAN INTL AIRPORT MSFS
Martin
Excellent scenery of both RCSS and Taipei that was worth the wait. No performance issues. Very enjoyable addition to MSFS. The Covid pandemic killed our Taiwan cycling trip for 2020, and probably for 2021, but this scenery helps ease the pain (well, at least a tiny bit). Highly recommended. I hope RCTP and RCKH are not far behind.
