The Wait is Over for the Wooden
When you are trying to outrun a
determined enemy there is no substitute for speed and agility – something that
the Mosquito has got in spades!
Just Flight is very pleased to
announce that its long-awaited Mosquito expansion will soon be taking to the
simulated skies. Mosquito is fully licensed by the Royal Air Force and has been
developed to the very highest standards by the vintage aircraft experts at
Aeroplane Heaven as a lasting tribute to this amazing aircraft.
Mosquito is due for official release
on 15th August 2008 and will be available as a great-value package for FSX and
FS2004 in boxed and download versions. Mosquito will include three classic
Mosquito variants – the B. Mk IV, the FB. Mk VI and the frightening FB Mk XVIII
Tsetse with its underslung flak gun. In addition, owners of Mosquito will be
able to expand it further with two keenly priced upgrade packs, available
exclusively from the Just Flight website. Costing just 4.99 each, the upgrades
will add a total of eight additional aircraft types in sixteen liveries to the
Mosquito hangar. With all three packs installed you will have a total of 20
exciting Mosquitoes to fly!
Built from wood and powered by two
Rolls-Royce Merlins, the Mosquito was a formidable aircraft with the speed of
a fighter, the manoeuvrability of a racer and the payload of a bomber. Now
flight simulation enthusiasts can experience the same blistering performance
in this brilliant package for Flight Simulator X or 2004.
The high-quality models are
accompanied by many unique animations and superb textures covering a range of
aircraft along with the distinctive sound of the Rolls-Royce Merlin engines.
The cockpits are equipped with the
latest "smooth" gauges for more realism and just about every switch, button
and control lever operates with the mouse – even the crew doors open with the
lever! Everything is historically and technically authentic right down to the
panel bolts and brackets.
In the bomber version, the ‘bomb
room’ is equipped with a working bombsight, arming switches and bomb trigger.
Even the emergency axe hangs on the fuselage wall!
The exterior models are finely
detailed with correct movement for the flaps, radiator shutters, rudder and
elevator trim tabs, bomb doors and more. The landing gear is highly detailed
down to brake lines and hydraulic actuators.
Many novel effects are featured,
including dropping of ordnance, smoke and firing guns.
