Aeroplane Heaven Releases North American P-51D Mustang

Another warbird by Aeroplane Heaven has made its way into our simulators.

After a long period of teasing us with screenshots, Aeroplane Heaven has released the famous North American P-51D Mustang. The fighter plane saw its introduction in 1940, with the RAF. After an upgrade to a Rolls Royce Merlin engine, the plane became viable competition for the Luftwaffe. The P-51D, the ‘definitive’ version, uses a license-built version of the Merlin 66 engine, and was armed with six .50 browning machine guns.

Aeroplane Heaven’s rendition of the plane includes similar high quality modelling and (PBR) textures as can be found in several of their previous releases. The team also claims the plane has accurate flight dynamics and performance, which they have based on real flight tests. Additionally, the team has also included a bunch of extra’s such as a U.S. military pilot and special code to simulator tail-dragger behaviour. Furthermore, you can ‘open up’ several parts of the plane to inspect its insides, such as the engine covers and ammunition bays.

The Aeroplane Heaven P-51D Mustang is available for $35.95.
