Curtiss P-40N Warhawk / KittyHawk IV Single Version

Ready to get to take charge of your P-40N? Ready to explore the performance boundaries and dangers of this excellent ground attack and aerial combat fighter? Can you handle low-level dog fighting, ground strafing, and training exercises? And ready to fly in any climate on Earth, in any season? Then this aircraft is 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 1 model (the most produced version of the N variant), and fully equipped panel and VC:

  1. Standard P-40N late model (the most produced version), complete in every detail
  2. 50 gal. drop tank, droppable
  3. Bare metal versions

A few of the features:

  • Highly refined flight dynamics: can and must be flown 'by the book';
  • Airspeed effects flight control effectiveness;
  • Realistic inertial starter sequence on aircraft with on-board starter;
  • Working weapons system, including accurate rate of fire and number of rounds;
  • Accurate orange tracer rounds;
  • Working collimated gunsight;
  • Working recognition light system;
  • Eight researched paint schemes;
  • Accurate and challenging ground-handling characteristics;
  • Photo luminescent gauges;
  • Spotlight cockpit lighting;
  • Individual gauge lighting where applicable;
  • Droppable drop tank, that removes weight and fuel from the aircraft.cfg for realistic performance change;
  • Fully selectable fuel system;
  • Accurate engine performance;
  • Working oxygen breather gauge;
  • Canopy can be jettisoned;
  • Working emergency gear extension;
  • 32 page Manual;

Lukas
Rather well done. I was skeptical at first but it flies nice, it's modeled nice, textures are good and on top of that it has a cool and unique custom efb smart phone with apps (weather, gps, notepad)Even comes with a well modeled fuel truck and transport car for those who like extra immersion. All in all you can tell the dev put passion into this XA42.

First I’d like to confirm that this is fully compatible with FSX Steam Ed. You only need to direct the install to you FSX Steam root folder which is very easy to do. There aren’t a lot of Russian military fighters to choose from or compare this to but this is definitely the best you can buy. The modeling of this SU27 is really quite good. Excellent exterior with reflections and shine as well as detailed aircraft modeling. All switches and panels in the cockpit are 3D. No sections that are just 2d photos pasted into position (like AFS Designs SU planes) while all switches, dials and knobs are 3d, only a handfuls are actually clickable. Only the most important can be clicked and the rest are not simulated at all. At least the VC is accurate and looks great! The Mach indicator in the Airspeed dial doesn’t seem to work. For example when I am at fl360 going 1200 kmh the Mach ready should read approximately (based on conversion charts and speed converter applications taking pressure, temp etc in to consideration) Mach 1.6 but is actually blank at the needle point. The AoA limiter allows for the most stable flight behaviors and forgives excessive stick input. Turn it off and the plane becomes vastly more maneuverable but also less forgiving of extreme movements, but is the only way to perform a “cobra”. With the limiter off, it becomes far more easy to accidentally enter high speed aerodynamic stalls and uncontrolled rolls and spins. When that happens you can hit the “auto recover” button and the plane will usually recover itself even if the pilot blacks out. The overall flight model feels very different from other jet (like F15, F14 etc) fighters of the era making for a nice change of pace if you’re used to American types. The audio is very cool! The engines sound as powerful as they should. Very nice afterburner effects and unique audio set adds to the overall immersion. Turn it up! Overall this is the best SU27 I can find. While little of the systems are simulated (typical of most planes of this type anyway) you get the most important and can enjoy the flight and extreme maneuvering capabilities just fine. It’s priced well all things considered. Excellent frame rates! Based on use with FSX Steam Edition Win 10 3.3ghz i7 16GB ram Intel UHD630 integrated GPU

Best aircraft I have flown in-game. I highly recommend this F35 to anyone who wants great immersion.

nothing to say top scenes with beautiful graphics, well optimized. I recommended it to you

even after this recent update, my plane crashed and it said; what a nice touch down....

I’d been using a freeware MYNN until this. Significant upgrade. Well worth the money.. Great rendition, smooth framerates. Very pleased. The only critique is the former runway that is now isolated taxiway is lit up like a runway.

Great addon with an awesome developer. Only downside is that SimMarket only offers downloads through their app.

Thank you Dino for this excellent ADDON, a great achievement to transcribe the VSTOL flight under MSFS. The modeling of both the aircraft and its cockpit are superb. I only have one wish: an update so that your aircraft carriers are mobile under MSFS! Can't wait for you to make us an E2C hawkeye for MSFS too!

Cannot recommend this in its current state, especially given the price. There are serious texture bleeding issues, the taxiways completely lack night lighting, and there are typos on some of the ground markings. The modelling and apron work has a lot of potential, and I would give this a higher rating if these issues were to be fixed.
