This package contains a selection of the rarer and more exotic variants of the famous Me-262 jet fighter of WWII:

1. Me-262B-1a/U1 Two-seat Nightfighter
2. Me-262A-1a/U4 "Pulkzerstörer" with 50 mm Cannon
3. Me-262A-4a/U3 Reconnaissance

History of the aircraft in this package:

(For a general history of the Me-262 aircraft, please see the previous release, the Me-262A and B for FSX.)

- Me-262B-1a/U1 Two-seat Nightfighter

Five two-seat trainer variants of the Me 262, the Me 262 B-1a were adapted as night fighters, complete with on-board FuG 218 Neptun radar and Hirschgeweih ("stag's antlers") antenna, as the B-1a/U1 version. Serving with 10 Staffel, Nachtjagdgeschwader 11, near Berlin, these few aircraft (alongside several single-seat examples) accounted for most of the 13 Mosquitoes lost over Berlin in the first three months of 1945. However, actual intercepts were generally or entirely made using standard German nightfighter "Wilde Sau" methods, rather than radar-controlled interception.

'Red 12', wk/nr 111980, was surrendered to Allied forces in 1945. This particular aircraft does not appear to have had any equipment installed in the upper part of the canopy, unlike some of the others of its type. The aircraft was destroyed in a gale at RAF Brize Norton in the UK, in 1947.

Extensive research was undertaken to portray this extraordinary aircraft's front and rear cockpits as authentically as possible.

- Me-262A-1a/U4 "Pulkzerstörer"

Only 2 prototypes of this model were constructed and flown, featuring the 50 mm Rheinmetall-Borsig Mk 214 cannon, with the overall package being designed by Mauser.

This large weapon took up the entire nose section, requiring that the design of the nose gear be modified to rotate 90° during retraction, which enabled the wheel to lie flat as opposed to the usual configuration. A revised wheel well door arrangement was also created to deal with the new layout.

The fitting of the Mk214 to the Me 262 was an effort to create an effective bomber-killer that could attack enemy formations from long range without being subjected to the bomber's defensive fire. The gun fired 1.5-kg shells at a muzzle velocity of 1100 meters/second, with the 2400kg recoil of the weapon being absorbed by a hydraulic damper. It was estimated that a single hit would be sufficient to cripple an Allied bomber. This development was designated the Me262A-1/U4 and was known as the "Pulkzerstörer" (formation or pack destroyer).

During testing the cannon operated without problem, but during the only 2 operational flights made by the aircraft on the 16 April, 1945, the cannon jammed.

- Me-262A-4a/U3 Reconnaissance

This was the reconnaissance version of the Me-262, being standard fighters modified in small numbers, with Reihenbilder RB 20/30 cameras mounted in the nose (sometimes one RB 20/20 and one RB 75/30). Some retained one 30 mm (1.18 in) cannon, but most were unarmed.

Features:

  • Highly accurate VCs, each different, individually modeled after photos of those in existing period aircraft;
  • 2 different types of artificial horizon, each modeled in 3D (including turnable locking rings);
  • 2 different types of Vertical Speed Indicator modeled in 3D;
  • Luminescent gauge dials for night flying, just like the original;
  • Cabin Ventilation lever that opens visible air scoop;
  • Revi16B gunsight that folds accurately out of the way;
  • Revi16B can be turned on and off;
  • Revi16B tinted glass can be realistically folded out of the way;
  • Nightfighter has red gunsight reticule, like the original;
  • Working trigger guard and trigger on control stick;
  • Accurate and working systems buttons on panel;
  • Fully clickable and workable cockpits overall (except Nightfighter rear cockpit, which is limited);
  • Five different models;
  • Four different textures;
  • Bump mapping in selected areas;
  • Carefully researched textures, including help from a major museum;
  • Accurately landing gear sequence (e.g. on approach: main wheels first, them front gear);
  • Accurate Luftwaffe pilot flight suit, flight helmet and oxygen mask;
  • Turn on the oxygen system and the pilot puts on his mask;
  • Animated pilots;
  • Exhaust cones that move with throttle setting, just like the original Jumo 004's;
  • Full flight operations manual, accurate and derived from the original;
  • Written history of all the aircraft depicted.

 

NOTE: The Nightfighter does not have an operational radar. We would have liked to have had one, but no such gauge exists presently, and it was outside our capacities to create something so sophisticated. However, there is a gauge poly there, so that should anyone find a suitable gauge, it can be easily installed (contact support if help is needed).

The Nightfighter has a visible pilot head (only) in the front VC cockpit, to enhance realism when the user is sitting in the rear seat. If you would like to fly the Nightfighter from the front seat, the pilot head can be removed with a simple click on one of the canopy bolts (see illustration in the Manual). 

The lowest-performance computer this product was tested on was a P35, E6600, ATI HD3850. There were no reported performance problems.

M'M SIMULATIONS - ESKN STOCKHOLM SKAVSTA MSFS
Erik
This is the first rendition of Stockholm Skavsta for Flight Simulator I can remember, and a very good one! Visited the airport once a long time ago, but when I started the sim it felt immediately like I was there again. Also very nice to see the interior modelled. Also important is that the developer is really quick in replying to questions and issues. I pointed out a few minor issues, which are already fixed and coming in an update as we speak!

This scenery offers a nice upgrade from the default MSFS scenery. For the price tag, it looks great and shows good attention to detail. Looking forward to more scenery from this developer as long as the price stays reasonable.

Should have before starting to fly. It's the reason why I bought the full edition afterwards.

In comparison with the guide I received with the physical premium deluxe edition of msf20, this is the guide they should have included. On top they keep updating the guide!

Great product! This scenery is same quality level as some of the bigger developers. I'm happy and overall, happy with my purchase! I recommend this scenery to anyone out there who likes to fly around the mountains!
VIRTUALCOL - BEECHCRAFT MODEL 99 SERIES MSFS
Johnny
Not sure what everyone is so upset about for a sim aircraft that costs under $20. It's not the worst plane I've ever flown. It feels like an early-release in terms of sound and instrument functionality, but it's also not a study-level aircraft. My only complaint are the sounds. Still, it flies well and is enjoyable enough.
HARD DECK SIMULATIONS - FUNCTIONAL AIRCRAFT CARRIER MSFS
Lucas
Pretty good but it is to note that the key, as I write this, is single activation only. You can deactivate the key if you're switching computer to use it on an other one but if you want to use the add-on on multiple computers only or you can't deactivate the key for whatever reason you'll need to contact the developer.
