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.

Customer Reviews
LOTUS SIMULATIONS - L-39 ALBATROS
Roger Halunen
It works for me in P3D V4.5. I purchased it when it first came out and it's been one of my favorite AC. It was a quality AC back then and is every bit as good today. It's a timeless piece of art that everyone should have in their hanger. The only difference in P3D 4.5 is that the wing tip lights are not in their exact position while night flying. A small price to pay considering everything else works as advertised. If Real Air Simulations had done a jet this would be it! Highly recommended!!

All hail Zev! Master creator and FS Innovator. Another one thoroughly hit for 6. Just bought it and did a few circuits to see what's what and I got my mind blown by the level of detail AGAIN! FPS PERFORMANCE SUPERB! Great job!!
SIMDESIGNSCO - SKPS ANTONIO NARIÑO AIRPORT FSX P3D
juan herrerra
Very good scenery the immersion when you are approaching to RWY20 was completely blow mind.
PKSIM - BOGOTA SKBO P3D
juan herrerra
Some of PKSIM's products can be a little blocky and outdated for today's quality against companies such as Orbx, Flightbeam, FlyTampa. And there's a small amount of this on the peripheries such as vehicles on the surrounding highways and some outer objects, And it's a little clean looking compared to a real airport that other designers will spend time on to give users a more immersive atmosphere. -
But ... the size of this airport, the amount of overall detail, this is just mind-blowing and a credit to the designers. And the shortcomings are soon lost in this massive and highly detailed airport, the FPS was average throughout the experience.

This scenery is EXCELLENT. LatinVFR have also done a phenominal job with the surrounding areas. I can recommend this scenery to one and all. GOOD JOB !!!!
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - UUEE MOSCOW SHEREMETYEVO X V2 - FSX P3D
tedias lim
Oh this is so good! Much better than V1. Probably one of the best sceneries I currently have installed. Love the ground details and the large amount of static a/c. Also, Sode VGDS works correctly at gates. Fantastic! Very satisfied with the purchase.

Great Product, few issues BUT Zev was on line to help within 15 mins and sorted, great support and fantastic real life airport, only left the real BDS a few days ago, so remember it well, and this is so true to the real thing, Keep going Zev.
ANTS AIRPLANES - TIGER MOTH PRO FSX P3D
William Sheridan
This is a great simulation of this classic biplane - the VC and external modelling are excellent as are the flight dynamics and the sounds which are a very true replication of the Gypsy Major engine. It also comes with a very useful and innovative interactive pilots handbook. Highly recommended and great value!

Roland Knöpfel
Very nice and detailed airport/surroun-
ding area which was missing for P3D4 since a long time. The scenery is FPS freindly (even with HD resolution) and it is possible to adjust a few parameters with the easy to understand config tool. Well done.
