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.

SOUTH OAK CO - FS BIRDS - NORTHEAST USA MSFS
David
While I do really like this addon, I even featured it in a recent video it needs some tweaking in my opinion hence the 4 stars. The birds appear too small for my liking which can lead you to think the addon does not even work, yet it does. They are just quite small and have to really look for them when at a smaller airfield, also they only seem to be in groups of 5 or so. Canada geese stick in larger flocks be it in the air or on the ground, so hopefully that can be tweaked in the future. All in all though it does had some much needed wildlife to the sim and add to your sense of being there, I look forward to future tweaking and new areas added.

One of the best, if not the best, addons for the sim. Before buying I was a little bit sceptical concerning FPS hit, if it looks too artifiacial. B-
ut after installing it, which is a very easy procedue, I asked myself why I did not buy earlier. It is an eyecatcher, updated often and with a really great support. Thank you Bijan for this great addon :-)

As a long time fan of Inibuilds I own their A310 and A300 fro X-Plane I am disappointed with this scenery because there are absolutely no parking spots at this airport. You have to spawn on the runway.

SOUTH OAK CO - FS BIRDS - NORTHEAST USA MSFS
Asael
This addon is a pretty sweet addition. The birds look great. I was line up to take off runway 31 at LGA and as I was making the turn onto the runway a flock of birds looked like they got spooked and flew right over the windshield. I was so impressed. This is a great addition! I would love to see if the birds can actually have an effect on the engines if you hit one. Maybe it does, I haven't tried running into one yet lol

It's Kerry as I remember it. One minor gripe - none of the stands show up on the world map, meaning you can only spawn onto the runway. Hopefully that will get looked after in future releases.

This aerodrome is very detailed in all areas that I personally observed and has a unique layout that is well-represente-
d in this. Well done and worth the value.

Very well worth the value. The aerodrome and surrounding facilities are accurate and the field is extremely detailed with vehicles and equipment. Combined with the nice coverage of the area, it makes for a great experience.
