It was the most sophisticated submarine that time with a great hydrodynamical design for conning tower, hull and guns which allowed up to 17 knots submerged speed, improved batteries and powerfull 3.700 kw electro motors allowed a range of 15500 nmi. The technic included snorkel, sonar- and radar detectors and a radar transmitter plus an electric torpedo-reloading system. The boat entered the war too late to succeed in any battle but the design directly influenced advanced post-war submarines of nations like USA, UK, France and Soviet Union. The only surviving boat is Wilhelm Bauer (ex. U-2540) which is now a museum ship in Bremerhaven/Germany. The FS-model has many animations including sub merging. 2D periscope panel graphics combined with camera views allows 360° look around and zoom functions plus watching the submerging from the eyepoint of the commander. From the attack periscope a torpedo, with a delayed explosion effect, can be launched. Optional ten more original submarine sounds can be activated by R.L. Clark's sound switches like: Rough sea, hatch, merging, diving, submerging, sonar-pings, torpedo launch and attackes by depth charges; even movie soundtrack is possible. Some extra sounds are included but due to the copyrights some specials sounds are not included but they can all easyly downloaded at boataces.com.

With an overall lenght of 65 meters she was a quite big and fast warship, equipped with twenty six 12-pounder guns and some more 6- and 8 pounders. While the original was built in just eleven month the replic, laid down in 1997, was completed after seventeen years. Today she is one of the biggest wooden ships. My models represents the original one. The Sim-model is almost complete rigged with hundreds of ropes and has many animated guns, six animated stunsails and six animated crewmen. Twentyfour cameras let you explore the whole ship: The deck, the lower gun deck and the sailors views from high above in the masts.

This Aircraft(from Libellulidae, a taxonomic family of dragonflies) was a Second World War tandem wing experimental aircraft built by Miles Aircraft, designed to give the pilot the best view possible for landing on aircraft carriers. A scale version of the M.39 design was proposed by Miles to meet Air Ministry specification B.11/41 for a fast bomber. The M.39B was used by Miles to generate data from which the M.39 design was improved, but the M.39 project was cancelled and the M.39B broken up. by Kazunori Ito.

FS2004 Effect-Sound Option FOR FSX Effects. In most of my FS2004 addons I have configured some FSX effects. Effects like Wing guns, Explosion or 16inch ship gun comes now with proper sound in FS9. Mostly they worked visually in FS2004 but the sound which is linked to the effects did not work. Now I found a method which makes that effect sounds also functional in FS2004. Of course this option works also with those effects from other aircrafts and ships. Credits to all the persons who made that effects and sounds. My work is only to make it functional in FS2004.
