Cockspur Announces He-162 “Spatz” for MSFS

Cockspur recently announced on their Facebook page that they’re bringing the Heinkel He 162 to Microsoft Flight Simulator. Initially teased in their April Fools post via a preview of the German sparrow, the He 162, nicknamed “Spatz” or “Sparrow,” has been in development for some time and is currently in beta.

Not much else has been shared about the aircraft other than the above. Additionally, twotonemurphy previewed the aircraft live on his Twitch channel displaying the WWII jet-powered fighter in all its glory.

The Heinkel He 162 was developed by the Germans towards the tail end of the war and was made primarily out of wood, as supplies for metals were hard to come by. The aircraft was notoriously dangerous to fly as several fatal accidents occurred during its development. Still though, this aircraft was truly one of a kind as an early iteration of jet-powered fighter aircraft.

Stay tuned to FSElite for additional updates as we get more information about the development of this historical airplane. Until then, enjoy some of the screenshots shared by Cockspur below.
