A-3, A-4, A-5, A-8 and A-9: over 20 individual models flown by key German pilots from 1942 to 1945. Each comes with detailed historical and technical information about the development of the many variants.
Each variant has a unique 3D virtual cockpit with fully operable 3D instrumentation with German period micro-mechanics.
Each aircraft makes full use of Flight Simulator X's advanced 6DoF aerodynamic equations, including accurately modelled coupled Moments of Inertia calculations, giving the virtual pilot that 'really flying' sensation.
Exterior modelling and textures
Five highly detailed FSX-native exterior and interior models and twenty one historical exterior liveries in 2048-pixel high resolution textures, supporting bloom, specular, bump mapping and self shadowing. Plus an option to use extremely detailed 4096-pixel interior textures, configurable using an external texture manager application.
Custom systems and damage modelling
You can fly with the realism of custom engine damage and aircraft systems modelling or use the 'Just Fly' utility to just jump in and fly. Fly the early A-3 and A-4 fighters, make the transition to early blind flying and radio navigation with the sleek A-5, progress to the versatile A-8 and then master the 2,200 horse power A-9.
The custom flight models take account of the operable bomb and drop tank loadings. There's even a working reflector gun sight. The Fw 190s unique 'Kommandogerat' ('brain box') is also modeled - a mechanical computer which automatically controls mixture, propeller pitch, boost and magneto timing!
"These new fighters gave us a hard time of it... faster in a zoom climb than a 109, far more stable in a vertical dive and they turned better than the Messerschmitt so we had all our work cut out to shake them off. We all agreed it was superior to the 109F and completely outclassed our Spitfire Vs. It was not until some months later that our intelligence admitted the introduction of a completely new fighter, the redoubtable Focke-Wulf 190, designed by Kurth Tank." Group Captain, 'Johnnie' Johnson, RAF Fighter Ace, writing of his first encounter with the Fw 190 in 1941
