After the release of their P-40, iniBuilds is back with another classic aircraft: the Bf108 Taifun (Typhoon). Designed by Messerschmitt, this German plane first took to the skies in 1934. It was officially introduced in 1935 and with 885 aircraft built, finally retired after World War 2.
iniBuilds rendition of the plane promises to be a faithful one, using MSFS’ CFD technology on all primary and all flight control surfaces, as well as the propeller. The unique STOL capabilities of this plane have also been modelled, with the leading edge slats allow the aircraft to land as slow as 45 knots. Furthermore, the team is bringing a fully modelled fuel system to the aircraft, as well as an authentically recreated Argus As10 engine.
Last but not least, the Bf108 will come with some fun animations and features that make the plane more interactive, such as folding wings, the iniBuilds EFB, opening doors and compartments and even a rain cover.
