Aft of the flight deck, the fuselage was open to form a moveable machine gun station. The tailwheel undercarriage was retractable. The Fw 58 was widely used for training Luftwaffe personnel. It was also used as a VIP transport, ambulance, feeder airliner, photo reconnaissance, and weather research aircraft. It was built under license in Bulgaria, Hungary and Brazil. It was also operated by several countries such as the Netherlands, Romania, Croatia and Turkey. This is an FSX panel update for the Focke Wulf FW 58, previously designed for FSX by A.F. Scrub. The package includes a wheeled and a float version of the aircraft. Both the new entirely remodeled and enhanced VC and the 2D panel are now equipped with all authentic German gauges. smoke and VC light added. The wheeled variant's engines are now automatically fired off on the runway.

See readme for details, operational features and credits. Sound current aliased to Howard 500X-an excellent sound pack. Original package by Wolfgang "Wolfi" Faber. Thanks to LLS for the FSX native conversion. Andre Luddick for some texture updates. Other updates by Chris Evans. Tested in P3D4 but should be fine in FSX and earlier P3D versions. IMPORTANT!! ---->>> Use only gentle (c. 50% approx) throttle during takeoff (over 80K (MPH) and increase gradually after takeoff. Otherwise you will crash this powerful aircraft.

FSX/P3Dv3/v4 Spitfire Mk VbTrop The basic Mk V was a Mk I with the Merlin 45 series engine. This engine delivered 1,440 hp (1,074 kW) at take-off, and incorporated a new single-speed single-stage supercharger design. Several Mk I and Mk II airframes were converted to Mk V standard by Supermarine and started equipping fighter units from early 1941. The VB was the first production version of the Spitfire to use "clipped" wingtips as an option, reducing the wingspan to 32 ft 2 in (9.8 m).The clipped wings increased the roll rate and airspeed at lower altitudes.

FSX/P3D v3 Hurricane two seater The Hurricane was a big leap forward in performance compared to biplanes such as the I-152 in service when the Germans attacked. The Hurricane also handled differently to equivalent Soviet designs and as a result the Soviets asked for a two-seater trainer version very early on.Ten Hurricane Mk.IIs were selected for conversion which involved removing the armour behind the original pilot seat and effectively fitting a duplicate cockpit complete with second windscreen. Having gained experience building the two seat trainers the Soviets went about converting the aircraft with a second position behind the pilot for an observer who faced rearward and was thus not as obstructed by the aircraft’s wing when looking down as the pilot was. These aircraft never had full canopies fitted to them which as well as making them extremely cold in the harsh Soviet weather also caused buffeting problems at high speeds.

The Dornier Do J Wal ("whale") was a twin-engine German flying boat of the 1920s designed by Dornier Flugzeugwerke In the military version (Militärwal in German), a crew of two to four rode in an open cockpit near the nose of the hull. Several countries, notably Italy, Norway, Portugal, Uruguay and Germany, employed the Wal for military tasks. The civil version had a cabin in the nose, offering space for up to 12 passengers, while the open cockpit was moved further aft. Main users of this version were Germany, Italy, Brazil and Colombia. The Norwegian polar explorer Roald Amundsen used two Dornier seaplanes in his unsuccessful attempt to reach the North Pole in 1925. His two aircraft, N-24 and N-25, landed at 87° 44' north. It was the northernmost latitude reached by any aircraft up to that time. This is an FSX update for the FS2002 model of the Wal, posted by the "Freeware Project Dornier Whale" in 2003. It features three closed cabin models and one open cabin model in four different liveries. The focus of this update lies on completely reworked VCs and new 2D panels, giving the cockpits a much more realistic appearence. Included are three different panels (two for the closed cabin model and one for the open cabin) with now all German authentic gauges of the 1920s. Thanks to Michael Garbers, Wolfram Beckert, Uwe Hochmuth and Markus Senkbeil for the original models, reworked VCs and new 2D panels by Michael Pook.

The Messerschmitt Me-323 Gigant ("Giant") was a German military transport aircraft of World War II. It was a powered variant of the Me 321 military glider and was the largest land-based transport aircraft of its time. A total of 213 are recorded as having been made, a few being converted from the non-powered glider Me 321. This an FSX/ P3D (V.3) update particularly for those who like this awesome "Giant of the Air", now equipped with both a much more realistic VC and 2D panel. Also, I've given it a more realistic paint job to make it look more like the real thing. Realistic exhaust smoke for all six engines added as well as vc light and extra camera views and animations added (opening cargo doors and truck being unloaded). Original model by Kazunori Ito, extra camera views and truck animation by Erwin Welker and new repaint, VC and 2D panel as well as smoke and VC light configuration by Michael Pook. FSX/P3D (V.3 but not v4).
