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 ).

That's a trully awesome addon.... well almost. The plane feels great to fly, the model is magnificent but the sound... omg AH, have you ever heard a P-51 ? Because that surely does not sound like one. That's almost an insult to our hears and to the packard Merlin music. Pleas-
e please correct those sounds

This aircraft would be very nice but unfortunatley several issues occuring: - Strange behavior regarding the thrustlevers with the most of controllers (programming mistake) - The whole Engine-startup procedure with the additional app does not work properly - The SSW-support does not exists (no answers, no tickethandling, no help)

INDIAFOXTECHO - AMERICA-CLASS LHA SHIPS MSFS
Mohd Nazri
I love the detail they put into the ship. However, there still room of improvement. They need to put locate the ship strategic place like in South China sea, Andaman sea, Strait of Malacca, Java sea, Indian ocean. Also if you try to move to the elevator it seems like there is a huge gap/hole that make your aircraft sink to the floor. Fix that and put the ship to more accessible location and I will give it a 5 stars.
