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.

This is a very clever piece of software which is very simple to use and does exactly what it claims. Defi-
nitely worth buying to be able to put a carrier (or frigate) where you want it.

Duncan
As another reviewer has stated, the installation of this aircraft is not straightforward-
. However, by following the instructions, it's not difficult. SSW are rather unique with their installation processes but all works well. This aircraft appears to be a very good representation of its real world counterpart. Having seen these fly in real life only a handful of times, it's always been one of those aircraft that I'd have loved to have seen more of. Both the exterior and interior models are seen to be very well presented with crisp textures seen throughout. Sound is a tad underwhelming, but this shortfall is somewhat offset by the aircrafts decent handling and "atmospherics". All in all, an extremely good buy, more so because of the very low price that it's available for at the time of this review.

Excellent representation of HHN! As an airline I fly into and out of Hahn frequently in real life; additionally I am a member of a virtual airline which does so as well. I was making do with the older Aerosoft version and wondered if they would update it for Prepar3D v. 5 but saw this become available and had to pull the trigger. Great detail, excellent frame rates and it integrates well with Orbx Germany North. Highly recommend!

yes i know this product is 10 years old and no longer has tech support but i bought the competitor's product and after 3 days of trying to get the autopilot v/s and alt hold to work and the same for the fuel management i bought this. you don't need tech support if everything works as advertised (and it does). i gave it 4 stars because the sun visor sometimes is down when i load a flight and there is no way to get it to go back up other than reload/restart the aircraft/flight respectively.

Carlos
The airport is nicely done though I find the island too green and the worst is the autogen, default one. An iconic key element of the island is the specific autogen in the cliff but you only see default one. So if interested only in the airport this is fine
