This is a brand new simulation of the last purpose-built dive-bomber used by the U.S. Navy.

Designed to replace the Douglas SBD Dauntless divebomber, the new Curtiss SB2C had a difficult birth and a tough early career. Structural weakness, poor performance and significant handling issues all led to inevitable delays for the production model to enter service.
The challenging handling issues were never really resolved and the aircraft earned many nicknames including ‘The Beast’. However, in the hands of experienced crews, the ’Helldiver’ became a formidable anti-shipping attack bomber and sub-hunter, contributing greatly to allied successes in the Pacific theatre.

The flight dynamics in this unique simulation have been engineered to give a challenging, authentic flight experience based on contemporary reports and pilot notes.In experienced hands, the SB2C became one of the most effective weapons employed in the Pacific war and featured in just about every major battle.

Every detail of this amazing machine has been authentically modelled in perfect detail. The rear gunner's cockpit boasts a full animated gunner and twin machine guns, housed in a retractable "turtledeck" which is also fully and authentically animated. Every switch, knob and lever in the pilot's cockpit is functional thanks to many unique animations.

Special "stutter-start" prop effects and sounds simulate the Wright Cyclone engine perfectly and the cockpit includes all the accurate switch procedures for authentic engine starts.

The bomb doors open and bombs will swing down and drop when dive-bombing. The high fidelity exterior model includes the Helldiver's unique dive flap system which has been modelled and functions to a high degree of accuracy. The wings fold revealing detailed working mechanisms and there is a working tail-hook for carrier landings.

There are two brand-new USN pilot figures with animations that include oxygen masks which are put on at altitude and you can toggle the rear gunner action that swings the gunner round and down to man the guns.

This is the most authentic rendition of this venerable USN dive bomber available and will provide many hours of challenging, simulation pleasure.

HARD DECK SIMULATIONS - FUNCTIONAL AIRCRAFT CARRIER MSFS
Lucas
Pretty good but it is to note that the key, as I write this, is single activation only. You can deactivate the key if you're switching computer to use it on an other one but if you want to use the add-on on multiple computers only or you can't deactivate the key for whatever reason you'll need to contact the developer.

Excellent airport! I was waiting for this plane for a long time! Finally we have great Samos airport in XP11

So cool. So beautiful. A work of art. The flight dynamics are crazy good. Some details should be improved (the sound of the engine shutdown is not coordinated with the propeller, the nose wheel doesn't turn when you taxi...) but it's definitely a WIN.

I purchased this plane since about day one and it is getting better and better. One note: I modified the static engine data from 15500 to 10500 static thrust. Lost a bit of top speed but much more throttle range in the sub sonic flight spectrum. Thanks its a great plane.

Aeroporto ben fatto ma con ancora alcune imprecisioni sui magazzini merci in fondo alla pista 36 dove mancano le scritte dei corrieri. Su questa pista, la 36 non sono ancora riuscito a decollare, sembra che non si riesca a togliere il freno di parcheggio o che ci sia un muro invisibile di fronte all'aereo. Ho provato con tre aerei diversi ma, sia manualmente che in copilota automatico, non riesco a partire. Sulla pista 18 invece nessun problema con gli stessi aerei che non partono dalla pista 36; al momento no ho ancora provato le piste 17/35 per la GA. Ho notato anche che con alcuni aerei, per esempio Icon 5, non si ha più il controllo della manetta che continua a salire e scendere in modo autonomo, in pilotaggio manuale intendo ovviamente. Ri-
ngrazio gli sviluppatori che stanno pensando anche agli aeroporti delle zone dove risiedo.

The Previous Review mentioned the 'Dis Used' Runway issue and we did have a 'Tussle' with our MFS 2020 Captain who did his best to make a Take Off from that Runway. Apart from the sure to be rectified issue with this Runway there is little to complain about with this version of Dublin International and the detail and Talented Craftsmanship is very evident. ps A definite 5 Star's when the Runway Anomaly is corrected.

Great that MXI has set out to produce small Swiss airports. I had previously purchased LSZB Bern. Am super satisfied and can only recommend it. I look forward to more Swiss sceneries.

Stable and open,low speed aircraft, great for relaxing and watching the scenery. The creator also actively listens to feedback in the forum. I think it's worth the price.
