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.

I personally do not think this scenery is worth even half the asking price. Not impressed at all.

Actually..in continuation to my previous review,i find the model unable to land it or take it of due to spinning etc (yes i have modern model) and i do hope they will update it's physics which are nothing close to realistic as they state. It floats like a balloon No hate.I believe they will fix it.

I just bought this yesterday 27/1/2021 Awes-
ome detail and overal quality.Awesome sounds as well. I just found MAJOR BUGS at the camera selection.I press the default buttons for the views and it gets me inide the engines cables-textures etc and then it fixes by it's own. I surely believe that they will update it. Good price which i can forgive many things,unlikely some other which ask 33 euros for CRAPPY F15

Zero Stars. This scenery is incompatible with p3Dv4.5. It alters all default airfield taxiway, runway, approach & PAPI lights to blurred textures which can only be rectified by removing the scenery from the scenery library. The scenery is low on detail for a product supposedly ‘compatible’ with p3Dv4.5 & it looks like it was originally designed with FSX users in mind. Stephen Bell

The Great Wall of China is super! I also liked the skyscrapers and houses with gates.
LIONHEART CREATIONS - TRINIDAD TB-21 GT MSFS EDITION
Filipe
A plane in Beta on the limit of being acceptable. It has some potential but needs an immediate update! One can't start cold and dark, can't read the GPS lights which are over-bright and low res! Doors do not open yet nor some other functions. For now it is a poor men Mooney with nuanced fails in cabin interior polygon count and some unfinished textures. In the outside the plane is very well done. Again it can go as far as the developer wants to push it. In my opinion you better off waiting for the update and future reviews.

Very nice, price fits it just right. I'd give it a 5 but I noticed some rain going through the window inside while flying in weather. Update it and its a 5*

Is not the best work from Mex High flight I hope they work on the details, tall treetops on approach to runway 8 and better textures on the terminal building looks like a cartoon Please update this title Alex
