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.

FSX/P3D Hawker Hurricane The Sea Hurricane Mk IA were Hurricane Mk I modified by General Aircraft Limited. They were modified to be carried by CAM ships (catapult armed merchantman) and called Hurricats, they could not be landed on the ship after their mission. The Hurricane Mark IIC modified with catapult spools and arrester hook were known as the Hooked Hurricane and were real carrier born fighters. FSX/P3D native GMAX model by A.F.Scrub.

The two packages that are contained in this offering was previously offered in 2 seperate packages, but for ease of distribution I've now combined these. I also did the following: 1. The aircraft.cfg files were tweaked. 2. Many textures were improved/corrected, they now sports the relevant stencilling as is applicable to the type. 3. The previously incorrect textured wing cannon issues that showed up on these models due to incorrect textures were also fixed, now all of these are case-specific to each of the related Helldivers as these are now colour-coded for the respective aircraft concerned. 4. The wheel-rims are also corrected and much more crisper. 5. The prop-blade textures was also improved.

The different Hurricanes contained in this offering is possible the best freeware ones that are avaiable to the 'simming-community'. It was however not avaiable in an all-inclusive package as many downloads from other sites was required if one would want to compile a noteworthy package. This is exactly what I went and did, and more: 1. The aircraft.cfg file was tweaked. 2. Some textures were improved/corrected. 3. Two brand new Night Fighter textures were added that was created by me. 4. The previously textureless issues that showed up on these models due to the incorrect mapping or lack of textures for the cannon-armed Hurricanes was also fixed, now all of these are case-specific to each of the related Hurricanes as these are now colour-coded for the respective aircraft concerned.

This is an improved, much crisper texture set for an existing ALPHA package, it now sports ALPHA-channelled textures. I did everything that I possibly could to make this offering as representative as possible a specimen of the real one. The only area that I wish I could have made to look better is the spinning prop effect, but due to limitations within simulation what is contained in this offering is the best I can do. Requires 'ALPHA_P-51DupX.zip' available from Simviation to work.

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).
