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.

Lanseria is quite impressive, detail is very, very good with excellent quality modelling. So seem so real that I've actually thought to myself. I never heard who is Caelus Aerial from. Welldone Caelus Aerial and thank you for making me feel like I'm actually in JNB.

La cabina interior horrible, el aspecto es peor que en un fs2004, muy caro para lo que ofrecen, espero que haya una acutalizacion.

Great looking scenery, really nice details (love the F/A-18 in the hangar). Nice to have a field to fly military planes from that's populated with static military jets.

Very nice scenery. I liked all the new features including the redesigned terminals, buildings, & holding bars. Looking forward for new updates on the scenery. Not-
e: It'll be nice to update the title of the scenery on Simmarket to 2021 rather than keeping it as 2019 so buyers can know that this is the newest version of Amman's scenery. Excellent job guys! Keep it up.

Better than the default scenery but I think some more can be done here. The taxiways could use some work. Plus the default push back wouldn't recognize the airline parking spots.
ROSIG2 - JAPAN TOUR, PART 1 + PART 2 - MSFS
Donato
I was allowed to take off as a test pilot - thank you for that ... because I was able to fly two handmade trips where the focus is on flying and not Wikipedia. You can feel the love and commitment with which they were designed every moment. The atmosphere in Tour I can only be described as WOW due to the timesetting, and in Tour II I was simply thrilled by the route guidance through pictures alone - something really new and a VFR according to new standards. The "trimmed to old" style of the pictures creates an exciting atmosphere. It was great fun to find the right route - another WOW! ... and finally fly over Fukushima without being contaminated ;-) I would especially like to mention the extensive possibilities for adjustments to the trips, all of which are excellently explained in the illustrated instructions provided, making this a useful "manual" for ALL bush trips. By the way, the links to suitable freeware add-ons for the Japan II Trip given in the instructions are a MUST in my opinion!

Scenery itself is okay, not too detailed but it performs very well. Conclu-
ding, this scenery is for everyone who wants an airport that is rather bland and not anywhere near Flytampa niveau but way better than any other payware RKSS.
AFS-DESIGN - PANAVIA TORNADO V2 FSX STEAM
David
Another AFS product that looks to offer a lot for the money but plagued with bugs. First off the flight models are not quite up to snuff compared to other makers of this same plane, but not really that bad either. The interiors are low Rez maybe slightly better than an average Virtavia cirque 2015 but some gauges do not work and others make no sense. For example the fuel flow never moves beyond its apparently locked position at 100% The inflight refuel fails to actually refuel. The tanker shows but no matter the speed or altitude you get no gas ever. The throttle goes straight to full afterburner half way up. You cannot fly more than barely 200kias without afterburner at altitude (such as FL360 plus) so you either fly full burn at high Mach speeds burning your fuel up nice and quick, or chug along like a struggling Cessna 208 past it’s ceiling. The auto pilot doesn’t have a speed hold so no joy there either. The missions don’t work, though you can technically select and fly them. The issue is no flight plan and no briefing can be located during the mission. So you have to take notes and prepare your flight like it were a WW2 era pencil and paper kind of thing. Unless you have a good memory and the pre flight briefing sticks in your head. Whatever you do you will not ever get a completion confirmation afterward. Rostock is supposed to be included with certain scenery updates but it hasn’t changed on bit after installing. Lighting up the GPS button should enable flight following of the GPS plan but it doesn’t. You have to select NAV to follow GPS which begs the question why even have a GPS button? 2 stars because I like the liveries and it can be fun to fly once in a while when I just want to go fast for a little bit, but other than that the noted problems make it not worth doing anything beyond that. Another AFS WTF product leaving a bad taste in my mouth. If they do a FREE update fixing all the problems it currently has, then it could be a fair 4 star product. Not today though.

AFS-DESIGN - EUROFIGHTER TYPHOON PROFESSIONAL 6 FSX STEAM
David
This is one of AFS better offerings. A pretty decent model inside and out with a nice selection of liveries. I have a Typhoon by another developer that is much better, but it doesn’t have many liveries at all. What sold me on this was the inflight refuel option in addition to the generous amount of liveries. There are aspects of this plane that feel off so to speak but for the money it’s hardly anything to complain about. All things considered this is my favorite AFS product.
