Special Edition Me-262a

Discover what made the famous Messerschmitt Me-262a Schwalbe the legend it is. A reworking of the previously released Flight Replicas' Me-262s, this new Special Edition features possibly the most authentic aerodynamics ever done for this iconic WWII fighter, painstakingly researched and written by FSX aerodynamics master Bernt Stolle. From managing the difficult early jet engines, to combat maneuvering at high speed, to getting back on the ground safely, you will come to know both the challenges and joys that were those of the real Me-262a pilots.

Not an easy aircraft to fly, this Me-262a will 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-262.

Included free: An entire USAAF B-17G Flying Fortress Combat Box, to scale, with almost 40 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"), to fully enable you to experience what it took to get the Me-262 into a firing pass, for example, and discover the pro's and con's of flying such a high speed aircraft against slower machines. Experience the new aerodynamics to their absolute fullest.

(Please note: While much of the physical model in this release is unchanged from the previously released Flight Repicas Me-262 models (which is what has prompted the lower than normal price), this new Special Edition nonetheless features many new VC upgrades in order to enhance realism even further and maximize your immersion, plus new high resolution textures throughout.)

History:

The Messerschmitt Me-262 Schwalbe (German for "Swallow") saw action from late summer of 1944 until the end of the war, sharing the title of first operational jet fighter with the British Gloster Meteor.

The Me-262 began life in 1938, when Willy Messerschmitt was called upon to design a new fighter to be powered by two gas turbine engines. The configuration eventually chosen featured a sleek streamlined fuselage with the two podded engines carried beneath a low-mounted wing. Although the first airframe was ready to fly by 1941, the B.M.W. engines were suffering prolonged development delays, which slowed the project significantly.

Developed steadily over the next two years, and using the famously unreliable Jumo 004 engines, the Luftwaffe began committing the Me 262A-1a to combat in mid-1944 when they were pitted against the streams of heavy bombers making daily raids on German cities and military targets. Despite being well-armed with highly effective 30-mm cannons and air-to-air rockets, the remarkable Me-262 was simply too little, too late, to turn the tide of war in Germany's favor. Maintaining production was difficult due to Allied attacks on industrial centers, many aircraft being destroyed on the ground before they could ever fly.

Some 1,430 total aircraft were built, though only about 300 ever saw combat. Some 120 two-seat trainers were built, made by modifying the single seat airframe. The Me-262, although a spectacular aircraft for its time, had a negligible impact on the course of the war, shooting down an estimated 150 Allied aircraft for the loss of 100 Me 262s, the majority of aircraft being grounded too often for lack of fuel.

Great value for such a detailed and important technological jump that thankfully came too late to make a difference. The historical relevance is undoubtedly considerable. Sure you only get three but they are remarkably well represented in both detail and expected flight characteristics. A must have for any WW2 collector and surprisingly fun to fly. Just don’t throw the throttle around like you might on an F16 or you’ll stall both engines. The 262 gas powered engines were not quite ready and terribly unreliable not to mention easy to fail.
My only complaint is that the oxygen tank meter is always set to empty for some reason, but the breather glows bright and dull indicating it’s functioning. I wish there were a loadable weapon configs but only the guns have ammo. Fun to fire though.
Best handful of dollars I’ve spent in a while.

Works great with FSX Steam Win 10 3.3ghz i7 16GB ram Intel 630UHD integrated GPU. Very easy on frames!

Magnifique avion, malheureusement j'ai beau suivre précisément la check list je n'arrive pas a démarrer le moteur droit.( obliger de démarrer un autre avion puis recharger le cl415) je n'arrive pas non plus à écoper plus de 2000lbs. J'espère que je trouverais rapidement une solution à ces deux soucis.

Excellent produit qui fonctionne parfaitement avec le Fenix A320 et les autres modèles de MSFS A32NX. Mode Distance ou mode Rudder Control avec l'avantage de tirer ou de pousser l'avion et de régler la vitesse avec le joystick en utilisant les élévateurs. -
Excellent product which works perfectly in two mode Rudder control push or pull with speed control with elevators or Distance mode. We can use it with every planes of MSFS included FBW A32NX and A320 Fenix since the last update 2.4.6 and 2.4.7 Better if documentation in futur could be updated with the new version. Do not forget to modify yours parameters inside the wheel when you launch it. Thanks FS2crew

CL 415 .Avion certainement issu de FSX. Intéressant , sauf pour le son moteur qui ne correspond pasà la réalité (Pratt & Whitney Canada PW100). Voir DHC 7 ou 8 et ATR. Une mise à jour du fichier Sound serai la bienvenue pour une bonne immersion sonore. Cordia-
lement merci -

MA-GNI-FI-QUE ! Superbe scène, très détaillée et surtout réaliste ! Jetways amortis lorsqu'ils se mettent en place. Véhicules de piste bien reconnaissables de marques françaises, les panneaux et signalétique au sol sans défaut. Aucun regret de l'avoir achetée !

plutôt contente de cet avion j'aime son look rétro, certes l'intérieur mériterait d'être un peu moins rustique, bien que tous les instruments soient là et fonctionnent parfaitement ( avec la version rechargée ce matin). le PA très simple a utiliser fonctionne très bien. peu-être une amélioration concernant le son qui semble pauvre pour un bimoteur des années 50, et des hachures de son par moments qui mériteraient d'être fixées. en conclusion bien agréable et maniable pour faire un vol tranquille de temps en temps (sans prises de tête les diverses procédures pré-vol, vol, et après-vol..
