Curtiss P-40N Warhawk / KittyHawk IV Early, Mid-Production and Training Versions

Ready to fly the fastest, lightest weight and most agile versions of one of the most historic and famous Allied fighters of WWII? Ready for some low-level dog fighting and ground attack missions? Care to take a stripped-down training model on a personal cross-country tour or to perform aerobatics or even racing? And ready to do this in a plane that you can take to any climate on Earth, in any season? Then these aircraft are for you.

Outstanding as a close ground support aircraft, the P-40 somehow gained a post-war reputation as a mediocre design as an air superiority fighter. Modern research has shown that the P-40 in reality performed surprisingly well in this regard, too, taking a very heavy toll of enemy aircraft, including when flown against the lightweight and maneuverable Japanese fighters like the Oscar and Zero.

Later versions, such as the N version of this package, were the most capable. Climb performance was still below average, and performance above 15,000 feet lagged behind many other fighters, but manouverability at mid to low level was truly excellent, dive acceleration was good and dive speed was excellent. The highest-scoring P-40 ace, Clive Caldwell (RAAF), who claimed 22 of his 28½ kills in the type, said that the P-40 had "almost no vices.”

The P-40 tolerated harsh conditions in the widest possible variety of climates, from the heat and humidity of the Pacific to the dust and sand of the North African deserts to the Arctic conditions of Alaska and Russia. It was a semi-modular design and thus easy to overhaul and repair, including in the field. Although it lacked many of the aircraft innovations of the later War fighters, it made up for this with a strong structure including a five-spar wing, which enabled P-40s to even go so far as to survive several midair collisions (some intentional). Caldwell said P-40s "would take a tremendous amount of punishment, violent aerobatics as well as enemy action.” Operational range was good by early war standards, and was almost double that of the Supermarine Spitfire or Messerschmitt Bf 109, although this was quickly overtaken my newer aircraft types.

The P-40 offered the additional advantage of low cost, which kept it in production as a ground-attack aircraft and a trainer long after it was obsolete as a fighter.

More N’s were built than any other P-40 variant, some 5,215 in all. The last rolled off of the production line in Buffalo, NY, on November 30, 1944.

As of 2013, it was reported that some 72 P-40’s were still in existence (25 of those being N models), with 31 of those (10 N) being airworthy.
 

This package contains 5 models, with 2 different VC's (early main panel and intermediate panel):

  1. Early lightweight 4-gun, with classic early 'birdcage' canopy (as found on the E.F, and G models, etc.)
  2. Later lightweight 4-gun, with standard N model canopy
  3. Later lightweight 6-gun, with standard N model canopy
  4. Mid-production bare metal aircraft
  5. Unarmed but otherwise complete, training model
  6. Stripped and unarmed, very lightweight training model

A few of the features:

  • Highly refined flight dynamics: can and must be flown 'by the book';
  • Airspeed effects flight control effectiveness;

FLIGHT SIMULATOR INNOVATIVE ADDONS - FLIGHT SIMULATOR FIRST OFFICER PROFESSIONAL EDITION FSX P3D
Anthony
I am rating this a 3 star for being a great product feature wise. Unfortunately, I can't get the product to work for an entire flight. For some strange reason it stops responding in the middle of my flights and then crashes. I only have the QW787 aircraft so I am not sure if it's exclusive to this aircraft. I have all of the necessary requirements so not sure what the problem might be, and I haven't gotten a response from the developer. I am using FSX. I would have given the product a 5 start it I could get it to do an entire flight. So again, 3 star for the features since the features are great. Best Regards.
INFORMATICA AZ - EUROFIGHTER TYPHOON MSFS
Tom
Nice looking model, VC has some rough looking edges ( the edges of the canopy glass for example). Would like to have an manual to get everything out of the MFD's, the loadout and the plane's starting and shutting down procedures. Tried to shut down engine after landing "by the book", but had to use the MSFS shortcut keystrokes. I found the Eurofighter Typhoon quite stable in flight, no jumping up or down, while mantaining straight flight. Reacting good on the stick during turning and climbing manoeuvres. Go-
od sounds, only speech (radio messages from ATC) tends to be blotted out by the sound of the engines. All in all, I find it a believable jetfighter and can recommend it.

LN DESIGN - KAVIK RIVER CAMP AIRSTRIP - RK1 MSFS
Koen
You can see that the author of this airport really put passion into this airport.. The accuracy of the models is amazing. I searched for a few pictures online and I compared them with what is in the game and its like completely 1:1 For example there is a weird wooden thing behind the living containers, and when you look on pictures the stand is right, the barrels are right, everything just fits perfectly. I also like the little extra's he put in, like the hand drawn made VFR map and the livery for on the cessna caravan. I do have some nitpickings tho; He could've made like the living trailers' corrugated steel actually 3d. now if you look closely you can see that its just a texture also there are some trees and bushes located on the gravel which is kinda weird since they dont tend to grow on gravel there are also some models with some nice details in them, like the aviation gas tanks. The way these nozzle hoses curve are really nice Overall this airport is a must have for people who like to do bush trips, especially if you like to do them in Alaska. Therefore I will give this airport the full 5 stars
WF SCENERY STUDIO - HONG KONG INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT VHHH P3D
Bradley
Very nice scenery indeed, looks great at night, good small details in various places. Lacks a good afcad which is now edited over at AIG Alpha India Group ; ) and also could be improved in areas like the construction site and other areas where building is going on. This is a nicer version of VHHH over T2Gs in my opinion and is also better in regards to housekeeping and the installation.
AZURPOLY - LFTH TOULON HYERES AIRPORT MSFS
Brian
Nice little airport looks great but no SID's or Star's for me. I don't know if it down to the Airport devs or MSFS. Hope it will get sorted soon.

Nice scenery. Not highly detailed but enough to enjoy it. Some improvements on the civil airport would be appreciated to be really immersive (buildings, flag, ... little boxy, brightness, shadows ...) ; hope we will have a more « photographic based on »update On A1 parking, night, two « sparkling circles» appear randomly in the sky (maybe a specific issue with my configuration), SID available but not STAR with A320 probably a msfs issue.

I love this plane. It is good looking and well detailled. Ideal for "low and slow" sightseeing. It flies well. The package comes with many liveries and a small but clear manual. I certainly can recommend this plane.
