Well known aircraft developer, A2A Simulations, has released their latest aircraft in the Accu-Sim range, the Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress for P3D v4/5.
The Flying Fortress is a World War II heavy bomber which saw action across Europe, Africa and Asia throughout the war. The B-17 first flew in 1935 and saw service up until it’s retirement with the Brazilian Air Force as late as 1968. Throughout its service with mainly the USAF and RAF, the B-17 earned its name for being a rugged, deadly platform that would more often than not, make its way home, even when badly damaged. Nearly 13,000 airframes were built but only 9 of the type are still in airworthy conditions today.
A2A has chosen to replicate the B-17G variant of the heavy bomber to include a host of features typical of their Accu-Sim range. Along with a faithful model and texturing of a well-used bomber, the B-17 comes with accurate flight physics which models how the aircraft handles after dropping its six-tonne bomb load. The aircraft comes with a whole crew which can take tasks away from the pilot to help ease the workload as well as a maintenance hangar where you can check how much wear and tear the aircraft has received during your flights as well as being able to see inside each individual cylinder on each engine. The aircraft also reacts to the world such as requiring more primer in cold weather compared to hot.
To purchase the B-17G Flying Fortress for P3D v4/5, you can find it over on the A2A website for $14.99 or $26.99 depending on your P3D license.
