Virtavia Releases First MSFS Aircraft: Short Stirling

At long last, aircraft developer Virtavia has released their first add-on for MSFS, with the release of their Short Stirling. The Short Stirling was a popular heavy bomber during the Second World War. It was the first four-engined bomber, powered by Bristol Hercules radial engines (Mk. I). The aircraft received a lot of praise from pilots due to its ability to outmanoeuvre enemy night-fighters. However, its service ceiling and limited range, combined with a limitation on its payload were often criticised and despite the plane’s popularity in the early war, these factors made that it was quickly replaced with the Handley Page Halifax and Avro Lancaster.

Virtavia’s Short Stirling package includes the. Mk. I Mk. II and Mk. III versions of the aircraft, The aircraft features PBR textures and a Wwise sound pack, which is based on the Hercules engines. The company promises an authentic flight model, and a working Lorentz Indicator for navigation. Last but not least, there is a toggle able crew ladder, toggle able crew figures, animated cowl flaps and animated cockpit windows and bomb bay doors for an enhanced feeling of immersion.

Virtavia’s Short Stirling is available for €25 from simMarket.
