Messerschmitt Bf-109Z "Zwilling"

Discover this unusual and highly challenging Messerschmitt experiment, the Bf-109Z "Zwilling". The first prototype was built, but was never flown due to bomb damage followed later by project cancellation. You will, however, be able to experience every aspect what was likely to have been the "Z"s amazing and skill-demanding performance, from highly demanding take-off and landing behaviours to it's handling qualities at combat speed. You also become the Test Pilot, and are free to make modifications to the aerodynamics in the effort to extract every possible performance increase. A high level of flying skill is needed.

History

There is not a great deal of information on this ultimately un-flown version of the Bf-109. The origins probably lie with a precedent within the Luftwaffe for the joining of existing airframes in order to create a new type, an example being Heinkel joining together two He-111 bombers in order to create the He-111Z (“Z" also for "Zwilling", the German word for "Twin"). The He-111 Zwilling was designed to be a heavy transport and glider towing aircraft, and was a successful design much liked by its pilots.

This experimental prototype, intended to be a heavy destroyer rather than a fighter, was based on two Bf 109F airframes joined together by means of a new wing center section and new stabilizer, both of constant chord, in a similar way to the later F-82 Twin Mustang. The right fuselage cockpit was faired over and the pilot flew the aircraft from the left side fuselage.

Additional modifications included moving the main undercarriage hinges further inboard, and subsequent substantial modifications to the outer wings’ forward structure in order to accommodate the repositioned undercarriage plus the Rheinmetall‑Borsig Mk 108 30mm canon and ammunition.

Four variants of this aircraft were initially proposed. One was a destroyer armed with five 30 mm (1.18 in) cannon and up to a 1,000 kg (2,200 lb) bomb load, another a fighter-bomber armed with two MK 108 cannon and up to two 2,200 lb. bombs. Both airframes were to be powered by the DB605 engine. A third and fourth were designed on paper and would be similar to the first two airframes but powered by Jumo 213 engines.

Only one Bf 109Z was built (presumably at Regensberg), and it was never flown, having been damaged in its hangar during an Allied bombing raid in 1943. Never rebuilt, the project was permanently abandoned in 1944.

AEROSOFT - ANCHORAGE PROFESSIONAL P3D

It's okay. I wouldn't pay full price for this because the texturing just isn't all that. Performance is decent but not insane, and it's an alright scenery, but not up there with the best and definitely not worth it at full price.
TABURET - MSFS NORWAY 15 M DEM
Uwe
Hey Folks, Mr Taburet has done a fantastic job. The DEM is amazingly accurate and the mountains, e.g. in Lofoten, look really good. Of course, I can't tell you if there are problems anywhere. Norway is just too big for that, but what I have seen so far is very good. Of course, there would be the objection that Asobo has made some improvements in the last update... Maybe. But the Taburet Mesh is still better! Sharper ridges and peaks. If you fly IFR, you don't need it, but it's recommended for all VFR pilots. And if you fly helicopters anyway. If there are problems somewhere, the developer is very happy to help and improve his stuff. I have bought all DEM meshes for MSFS from him and I am very happy with them. He has also improved all of them so far and an improved Spanish DEM will be released soon, if I remember correctly. You need a strong CPU and GPU though.

Exclente escenrio, muy detallado e identico al real. El rendimiento es excelente, si no lo adquieres estaras cometiendo un gran error. Vale cada dolar pagado. Gran trabajo, felicidades a SierraSim Simulation

An amazing addon for MSFS: the work done makes flying along the Tuscany and Sardinia coasts an amazing experience! It's what MSFS should have been in terms of scenery design!
TABURET - ITALY DEM 5 - 10 - 15 M RESOLUTION MSFS
Luca
Very good mesh! Greatly improve Alps and Appennines. It would be great (I don't know if it' possible) improve Gran Sasso area with a 10m resulution...

Greatly improve italian coastline! I don't kow if it's possible, but I hope in the future see something for "Costa dei Trabocchi" in Abruzzo...

The overall scenery is great. However, the buildings are lacking. PANC is good airport to have.

BRSIMDESIGNS - EMB200 IPANEMA CROP DUSTER - MSFS
Les
We are on v5 of this add-on and it's solid! Spray works both inside and out (you have to fill it before takeoff), flight model solid (they got the tail dragger aspect correct), and the cockpit/visual model is spot on both inside and out. Comments were made about how the pilot looks in the cockpit from external view but after reviewing some real world pics it looks about right. The only thing left that's a sore spot for me is internal lighting at night in the cockpit and when opening the side windows you don't hear the wind rush sound like in other add-ons like the JF Arrow. Also the cockpit canopy still doesn't open. If they get these few items addressed this is easily a 5 star add-on. Great job so far, looking forward to v6.
GOLDEN KEY STUDIO - MIG-21BIS "FISHBED" EXTENDED EDITION P3D4-5

This is a decent aircraft when it comes to flight model and performance let down by some really bad graphics. Most of the skins would not be out of place in an aircraft boneyard, I'm all for weathering but it should be subtle. I hope there is an update to correct this unfortunate blemish on an otherwise very good project. Can't get through to their site but perhaps this might get their attention.
