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.

YSIM - SUBSONEX JSX-2 MSFS
Chandler
Updated review for V1.1 Really fun little jet. Handles really nicely and a joy to fly. Become one of my main choices because its so versatile. It takes a little bit of adjusting to the landing but it only takes a few tries and becomes natural. This update added parking breaks which was a great addition and great to see that community feedback was listened too. Currently the oxygen system also doesn't sem to work. The gage is there but you can't turn it on or off however it's more a candy feature but given how "minimal" the cockpit is, I really would love to see that added. The screen has 2 modes, the G3X which is nice for basic VFR flying especially if mostly use the default aircraft aviaonics but you also have the MGL with 3 options of display, which when activated show smoke status,any aerobatics and the G force shows and it also helps keep heading in aerobatics by showing the ideal line to keep on track.I also love the fact that when you retract the landing gear, you can see a little bit below the plane, which can be helpful to look quickly at both to see where lined up but also because it's easy to check if gear is down. I have bought way to many planes for this simulator and for the cost, enjoyment and difference this is a must buy in my opinion and one of the coolest planes we have so far with the only really similar plane being the Cri Cri jet version which I find this different enough (being small and jet powered is basically where the similarities end) that I wouldn't say if already have the cri cri and enjoy it not to get this. If torn between the two, I'd have to say I'd pick this as you will have a blast if pick this up and you can count on Y-Sim to keep up the great work. Keep it up Y-sim and I look forward to seeing what the updates and future products you bring to the simulator ???? P.S the discord is a really amazing space and you will find any help or answers to questions you may have there!

It's not a bad airport, but the MSFS version is obviously an upgrade from FS2004 that was then upgraded to FSX, and then to P3D. The developer made an effort to add a few bells and whistles like PBR, but it doesn't hold up very well to MSFS standards. I hope it gets updated with better weathering, possibly a modeled interior at least for the jetways (which at least are custom, so there's that), better landside area and surrounding, and by the love of god, please improve that NAMC YS-11 model, because it really doesn't do justice to such a historical aircraft. While at the moment it's not worth the asking price, IMHO, I think with a bit more work it could be.

hi i love the mesh but Pokhara and the surrounding mountains has a lot of bugs, airport surfaces has wrong elevation and Mt fishtail and the annapurna range completely disappears if flown near.

Purchased it on his store. A great rendition of an interesting Aussie airport. Really captures the character and essence of the region. Can't beat the price, either.

Really fun little jet. Handles really nicely and a joy to fly. Become one of my main choices. It takes a little bit of adjusting to the landing and there seems to be quite a bit of bounce while slowing and you have breaks but not parking breaks. Currently the oxygen system also doesn't work. The gage is there but you can't turn it on or off which yes it's more a candy feature but given how few switches there are I really would love to see that added. The screen has 3 options of display, which show smoke status, G force and helps keep heading in aerobatics.

2 things please, Can you please add some wing flex? Can you please let livery creators be able to paint the winglets? Thank you, other than that it's great!

This is a must have if you love Cargo flights, UPS especially in this case. Quality is as good as their KMEM for FedEx. What I love about FSDT, is that they always add fun stuff! KMEM was the fully designed Tower; For KSDF, something took me by surprise with GSX: whenever you unload cargo (or load) instead of having the default trucks to pick it up, you have a UPS guy that will take your cargo and place it at the storage next to it! Really fun touch, makes cargo flights more fun.

This scenery is very worth the price of 12 euro, New york have tons of detail building and airports, the image scenery that it comes with is great and cover so many area, The image scenery covers all of the north east scenery so if you wanna to Denver then this is the scenery for you, But it only comes with New york city airports so keep that in mind, overall i would give this scenery a 5/5 star
