The Martin Mars was first conceived as an enormous bomber, a squadron of which could level Tokyo in a single trip, according to designer Glenn L. Martin. The prototype, XPB2M-1, was eventually transformed into a cargo plane with no armament, and served well in the Pacific from 1943-1945. Only six more of the type were ordered at the end of WWII. These served as transports until 1956, when they were retired. In 1959, the remaining four were purchased for conversion to firebombers. Two were later lost, but two remain flying to this day, the Philippine Mars and the second Hawaii Mars.

Sehr gut ! Schade das es nur zwei Bemahlungen gibt. Manko : es handelt sich um ein reines Wasserflugzeug und ein Fahrwerk wie bei der ME-Komet ist da fehl am Platz !

SWISSMILSIM - DE HAVILLAND VAMPIRE DH-100 MSFS
Charles
One piece of information concerning the commentary on the texts in the cockpit of the Vampire: Switzerland being a quadrilingual country, the choice of inscriptions in the cockpit of military aircraft from the 1940-1990 period was delicate. The German-speaking majority did not want to impose itself too much! And as it was the time of the Second World War, making a distinction with the German neighbour was probably important. As a result, all military aircraft had French cockpit markings (with some exceptions on later instruments). The SwissMilSim Vampire being a faithful reproduction of the aircraft of the time, the texts are in French. As for completing with the original English versions with faithful instrumentation-
s, SwissMilSim has done so in FSX and P3D versions with little sales success!

Amazing Scenery. Worth the price. I've been following this company for a while and they put out nothing but top notch scenery.

This is a great little historic aircraft and a nice model. Well worn interior, decent exterior, good set of features and excellent sound that is all too often lacking in far more expensive payware. It's old, cranky and not so fast, but has good pilot viz and fun to fly. Hopefully, folks will come out with some other liveries and more will give the Vampire a chance because it's worth it.

Comment to my previuous review OF course, as usual, the screenshots DO NOT capture the real work done

Those who criticise the looks have no idea what they are talking about while i'm not a pilot i have sat in a real vampire and the cockpit was just how it was in the real world, i also see no problems with the texturing and quality on the exterior model either, and while i have seen a few planes textured a little better they in no way deserve your crummy 1 star. The external textures are part of the livery and could be improved by other textures if they get made anyway.. That all being said i do have some issues, the documentation while good can be a little confusing in its wording i am guessing this maybe a language translation issue i would also for this price hoped it would come with a few different versions and some historical liveries like raf. After shutting down ambient sounds vanish which is a little weird and there is no sound difference between canopy open and closed The labels in the cockpit are German? while i hate to be arrogant most simmers speak English and English is the international language of aviation so would have been nice to have them in English .apart from those which are minor the plane is great to fly and the sound of the Goblin Engine is amazing. i found it pretty tricky to land getting the speed right i also found it very easy to spin and i haven't been able to recover from it maybe its me or maybe its unrecoverable i have no idea if the real one was so easy to spin also that engine blows up a lot so need to keep the throttle down out of the red all in all a good product and i hope a few fixes are made to make it even better

Despite the lack of inside modeling, its a very good work And the terminal is very precisely designed. The airport itself includes many buildings. As usual with Tropical Sim, the screenshots desserve the product

Those who criticise the appearance of the cockpit have certainly never sat in it. I have flown this plane, I can assure you that it is a very faithful historical reconstruction not only in appearance but also in performance, and not an avatar!

Textures are abysmal. Seems all the ground textures were done with google images. Runway textures is horrid and crooked. I wish more time was put into this project as this is my home airport. There's much to be desired. It seems extremely rush. Not worth the money.

I really love this Plane. This and Br Sim Design's H35 Vtail are just fantastic. Some of the best engine vibration effects and prop effect i have seen. Flight model is great and the plane is such a joy to fly. I have both and they are a part of my regular rotation. This one is unique in its design. Definately worth it! You won't regret it.

Rather well done. I was skeptical at first but it flies nice, it's modeled nice, textures are good and on top of that it has a cool and unique custom efb smart phone with apps (weather, gps, notepad)Even comes with a well modeled fuel truck and transport car for those who like extra immersion. All in all you can tell the dev put passion into this XA42.
