This Curtiss SB2C package from Aeroplane Heaven includes the -3 and -4 variants of 'The Beast' for FSX and P3D, with details such as two animated crew members, gunner's cockpit, simulated dive bombing with droppable bombs, folding wings and a working tail-hook for carrier landings.
The aircraft come in eight liveries and a special Configuration panel pop-up lets you load a variety of weapons and provides a 'cold and dark' start-up option.
This is a brand new simulation of the last purpose-built dive-bomber used by the US Navy.
Designed to replace the Douglas SBD Dauntless dive-bomber, the new Curtiss SB2C had a difficult birth and a tough early career. Structural weakness, poor performance and significant handling issues all led to inevitable delays for the production model to enter service. The challenging handling issues were never really resolved and the aircraft earned many nicknames including 'The Beast'. However, in the hands of experienced crews, the 'Helldiver' became a formidable anti-shipping attack bomber and sub-hunter, contributing greatly to allied successes in the Pacific theatre. In experienced hands, the SB2C became one of the most effective weapons employed in the Pacific war and featured in just about every major battle.
The flight dynamics in this unique simulation have been engineered to give a challenging, authentic flight experience based on contemporary reports and pilot notes.
Every detail of this amazing machine has been authentically modelled in perfect detail. The rear gunner's cockpit boasts a fully animated gunner and twin machine guns, housed in a retractable 'turtledeck' which is also fully and authentically animated.
Every switch, knob and lever in the pilot's cockpit is functional thanks to many unique animations.
Special 'stutter-start' prop effects and sounds simulate the Wright Cyclone engine perfectly and the cockpit includes all the accurate switch procedures for authentic engine starts.
The bomb doors open and bombs will swing down and drop when dive-bombing. The high fidelity exterior model includes the Helldiver's unique dive flap system which has been modelled and functions to a high degree of accuracy. The wings fold to reveal detailed working mechanisms and there is a working tail-hook for carrier landings.
There are two brand-new USN pilot figures with animations that include oxygen masks which are put on at altitude and you can toggle the rear gunner action that swings the gunner round and down to man the guns.
This is the most authentic rendition of this venerable USN dive bomber available and will provide many hours of challenging, simulation pleasure.
