Textures for all five gliders in the original package (types A, B & C) updated for FSX in the dds format by Henry Rastouil (2) and Ross McLennan (3). This German assault glider, developed by Deutsche Forschungsanstalt fur Segelflug (DFS)/ German Research Institute for Sailplane Flight, was used for the first time during the operation against the Belgian Fort Eben-Emael near Maastricht (May 10, 1940). They were also used during the Krete invasion (Maleme, 1941), in the Western Desert and on the Russian Front for transport purposes. Were used to deliver Otto Skorzeny's commandos against the Gran Sasso mountain-top hotel to rescue the imprisoned Mussolini (Sept 12, 1943). The Royal Italian Air Force (Regia Aeronautica) received almost 20 DFS 230's, but they were used only for training. UPDATED FSX PACKAGE (September 2010): Also includes a JU52 Military Version from the JU52 Factory (Managing Director: Pierino Primavesi) as the AI tow aircraft updated for FSX. Flights to replicate the attack on FORT EBEN-EMAEL. In support a brief history of Fort Eben-Emael and Grand Sasso (Operation Oak) attacks. Support is given by Ross McLennan only.

The aircraft are simply revisions of my FS2004 Passenger In The Cabin Project but are only provided in standard VC mode for FSX. Original aircraft model from THE JUNKERS JU52 FACTORY Managing Director: Pierino Primavesi. Bush Unlimited Flying textures by Heather Sherman. Original 1936 Lufthansa D-AQUI textures by Pierino Primavesi. Because these FSX versions are based on my FS2004 PIC project, they have full autopilot control including speed but being floats, not amphibians, have no VOR1 or Nav hold facility. The aircraft can also be setup to drop Heather Sherman's parafoils. It is recommended you fly in Alaska or elsewhere from defined water runways. FSX updated version September 2010.

This aircraft is simply a revision of my FS2004 Passenger In The Cabin Project but is provided in standard VC mode for FSX with the option to convert to PICR operation. Original aircraft from the Junkers JU52 Factory Managing Director: Pierino Primavesi. Aircraft was "First Round The World". In FSX some period gauges used previously did not work so there have been replacements fitted. An inspection of photographs of the real aircraft seemed to indicated the altitude and VSI gauges are imperial in the modern aircraft update. The aircraft has also flown around the world again in IWC paint. The FSX version is tuned to climb and fly safely at 12500 feet and because it is based on a PIC version, has full autopilot control including speed and Nav hold. The aircraft can also be setup to drop Swiss Paratroopers or Parafoils. The FS2004 sim version on which this FSX project is based used the model Ju-Air JU52 HB-HOT and textures version 6 by Pierino Primavesi. FS2002 PIC Concept by Ross McLennan, July 2007, consolidated update for FS2004 October 2009. FSX version of the aircraft September 2010. Packaged and supported by Ross McLennan.

FS2004/FSX Junkers Ju-87 Stuka. A remake of a previously uploaded Stuka (by Italo D'Attomo). This is now a new full package (aircraft and panel). The Stuka (Sturzkampfflugzeug) was a two-seat, pilot and rear gunner, German ground-attack aircraft with inverted gull wings. The Stuka was used during the Blitzkrieg and with its fame behind was exported to Bulgaria, Hungary, Rumania and (159 airplanes) in Italy, where it was dubbed "Picchiatello", a pun meaning at the same time "diver" and "knocked in his head". It served from Norway (sometimes with skis instead of wheels) to Libya (hot weather version B-2/Trop). This model features highly reflective metallic skin and full animations. Three textures are provided, one Italian and two German. The panel is the same made by Italo D'Attomo with a few minor changes. Included also is a virtual cockpit, with working essential flight instruments and animated flight controls, plus camera views (FSX only). By Capt. G. Quai.
