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.

It has some ways to go. Few things to tweak, few to add. Right now moderately enjoyable to fly and to look at. Definite recommend after a few updates.

I got this plane from Just Flight website and this bird did not dissapoint! The sounds and handling are spot on, it is fairly easy to learn to fly it and i have not yet noticed any bugs. I got it on release and have flown it around the world in any weather conditions. Just Flight is by far one of my favorite 3rd party devs in MSFS and this just prooves how far they are able to go. Also i use Aerosoft traffic and is was in a collition course and the plane also noticed this and told me to pull up. Never experienced that before in any plane.

The graphics overall aren't the best quality. No lighting of an evening time other than runway and taxi lights. But worst of all, is that the ramp by the terminal is like a rally course, incredibly uneven surface surrounding the terminal! In desperate need of an update and some serious work being done to it to warrant it being worth the price tag you set for it. Disappointed is an understatement.

This is an update to my earlier (1 star) review. The developer has now responded to my issue, giving great helpful support and a new file to try. All issues are now fixed and it's a great little product.

This is the best carreer addon currently existing for MSFS. (May 23rd, 2022)
SOUTH OAK CO - FS BIRDS - EUROPE CENTRAL MSFS
Stefan
Very good addon, brings life to the game. At the airport there are always birds sitting around and at the gate there is suddenly a shadow, you look in the air, no is not a plane but a bird (smile). In VFR low-level flight you meet flocks of birds that brings additional life in the air. Very nice to observe when you go on a discovery trip with the helicopter.
