Just Flight has recently announced on their Facebook page a link to “full details” and five photo’s of their upcoming Avro Vulcan B Mk2 for P3D and FSX.

The aircraft has been modelled after extensive hands-on research with a real Vulcan B Mk2 at Wellesbourne Airfield. The aircraft will have various 4K paint schemes, realistic payloads, and ground equipment.

Here’s the entire features list:

Model

  • Accurately modelled Avro Vulcan B Mk2, built using real-world aircraft plans and comprehensive photography of the real aircraft (XM655)
  • Many detailed animations, including:
    – Crew door
    – Bomb bay doors
    – Multi-position airbrakes
    – Multi-stage brake parachute
    – Deployable ram air turbine (RAT)
    – Variable-speed wipers
    – Tilting main landing gear
    – Flying controls (including elevons)
    – Animated pilots
    – Retractable taxi/landing lights
  • A range of payload options:
    – Blue Steel nuclear stand-off missile
    – 1000lb bombs
    – WE.177 nuclear bomb

  • Different aerial, refuelling probe and other external parts providing several configurations
  • Olympus 201 and 301 engine nozzle types
  • Ground equipment, including Houchin GPU and Palouste compressor for engine start
  • 4096×4096 textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity
  • Bump and spectacular mapping used throughout the aircraft to produce a truly 3D feel

Cockpit

  • A truly 3D virtual cockpit right down to accurately modelled ejection seats and screw heads – every instrument is constructed fully in 3D with smooth animations
  • Cockpit textures feature wear and tear based on reference photos taken in the real aircraft to produce an authentic environment
  • Interactive engine start checklist
  • Checklists for every stage of flight
  • Panel state system which will automatically save the panel state whenever a flight is saved and reload the panel state whenever that flight is loaded
  • Aircraft configuration system that will allow you to choose between ‘cold & dark’ or ‘ready for take-off’
  • Functioning oxygen regulator system with realistic consumption based on altitude – watch the oxygen quantity drop with usage
  • Realistic V/UHF radio unit – save and recall commonly used frequencies
  • Fully functioning magnetic indicators, warning lights and push-to-test buttons
  • No detail is too small – even the option to switch between day and night modes on the landing gear indicator is included!
