Discover what made the famous rocket-powered Messerschmitt Me-163B the extraordinary flying machine it was. This package features possibly the most authentic aerodynamics ever done for this iconic WWII fighter, painstakingly researched and written by FSX aerodynamics master Bernt Stolle, whose own father flew the Me-163B in WWII - and thus this was a very special project. From mastering the art of taking off in an aircraft with a very narrow (and jettisonable) undercarriage, to combat maneuvering at high speed among the bomber formations, to flying back to your airfield and landing the aircraft in gilder form once the engine fuel is used up, you will come to know both the challenges and joys that were those of the real Me-163B pilots.

Although the Me-163B was known for its nice in-flight handling characteristics, this Me-163B will none the less be a challenge for experienced pilots, or for those seeking to expand their skill range. Discover why only the best of the best were allowed to fly the Me-163B Komet - including those with exceptional glider skills.

Experience the Me-163B aerodynamics to their absolute fullest.

Included free:

  1. An entire USAAF B-17G Flying Fortress bomber formation, to scale, with 162 accurately scaled low poly aircraft (flying via a single set of air files), which can be flown as AI or by using freeware programs (such as the excellent FormationSetup, available here), to fully enable you to experience the spectacle and scale of these formations plus what it took to get the Komet into a firing pass, for example, and discover the high skills required of flying such a high speed aircraft against slower machines.
  2. An accurately scaled, low poly, Messerschmitt Bf-110G tow plane, to take you up to altitude on unpowered training flights (instructions for use included).

History: 

The Messerschmitt Me-163B saw action from May 1944 until the end of the war, and so far has been the only rocket-powered fighter to ever have been operational.

Designed by Alexander Lippisch, a pioneer in the field of aerodynamics and especially 'flying wing' designs, the first flight of the revolutionary Me-163A was in 1941, and soon established a new speed record of 1104.5 km/h (624.2 mph). However, the revolutionary design meant a lengthy development period, and the Komet only became operational in mid-1944. The rocket engine would remain a temperamental (and often dangerous) element of the design, but the extraordinary performance of the Me-163B would give it an unrivalled speed advantage over any contemporary piston fighter for the rest of the War. The fastest-ever recorded speed of the Me-163B was 1,130 km/h (702 mph), a speed which would not be exceeded until 1953, by a Hawker Hunter.

Information is not that clear, but some 400 Komet's were built, with 279 seeing operational service. Their actual effectiveness, due to late-war production and fuel-supply difficulties, was limited, and in the end the 163 was only responsible for (depending on the source) between 9 and 16 kills in total (for the loss of some 6 Me-163's due to enemy action plus another 9 to accidents ).

Nice done! Nice fps! The airport and surrounding scenery are wonderful. I had looked for this airport for a long time, then, it suddenly appeared, AMAZING!

This applications save me from the disappointment of not being able to use the B787 Dreamliner. I recently upgrade my Standard MSFS2020 to Premium Deluxe just so I wanted to try this new airliner. I read in the forums that there is a known issue with the B787 but I never thought that it almost ruined my experience and my faith I had on ASOBO. The aircraft won't do a tight turn. If you did, its stop and won't move at all. So you have to figure out how to make it move again. If you an experienced and long time player you just know what to do. Also if you put too much fuel or too much payload. The aircraft will start to bounce when you start taxiing it on the runaway. This apps save the rage in me because it can assign steering tiller and make you steer the aircraft easily and responsively.

Great details and awesome scenery. Round it up with the Singapore City payware add on!

Not all the buttons work, but most do. I would love to see an update that adds the hud and and maybe higher res textures, but this plane is most definitely worth it in it's current form.

Very good representation of the airport. The main terminal building roof colors are exactly like the real life. This is probably the best scenery for this airport. Thank you Sierrasim for making my home town airport

For a first attempt at MSFS scenery, I think this is pretty good. I would advise the authors to work on adding PBR with an update, and to improve the resolution of the front sign. Also the model of the approach lights is very good, but they need to be made operational, instead of just overlapping with the default ones.

Magnificent scenery. Very accurate, fps-friendly and detailed. 10/10, would recommend.

Outstanding and amazing job on this airport, we need to see more African airports with this type of accuracy, I was in Senegal, in 2019 and flew in this beautiful airport...one of the best in Africa. This scenery depicts exactly what I saw. Attention to details make it enjoyable and want to fly in MSFS 2020, I would like to request that you add more African airports with details like this one (GOBD), I feel like African airports are a little bit neglected in a Sim world. I'm pretty sure that if you craft other African airports like GOBD, you'll be in this business for long. I'm particularly requesting Doula and Yaounde, the two main airports in Cameroon.

Very fun plane to fly, especially in VR but definitely needs more work, optimisation and love in the future. It works for what it is and for around 20€ I'd say it's worth it. The included liveries however are of questionable quality at best.

Does not even come close to the quality of the MB339. There is no "feel" to the flying, it feels like an arcaded game.
