Aircraft developer, DC Designs has announced its first vertical take-off aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator - the AV-8B Harrier II is out now.
The Harrier is designed to be accessible to all users without the need for intense study while also providing a challenge for those who like to fly complex aircraft. The package features all three Harrier variants: AV-8B, AV-8B Plus and GR9 along with 12 liveries: Royal Air Force GR9s, US Marines AV-8Bs as well as Spanish and Italian Air Force paint schemes. Other highlights include a custom-coded vertical take-off and landing system built specifically for Microsoft Flight Simulator, authentic night lighting and slime lights for combat operations.
The 3D cockpit sports an accurately modelled ejection seat, animated controls and 3D instruments. The MFDs (Multi-Function Displays) and a HUD (Head-Up Display) are custom coded based on actual Harrier displays. Other details include scratched canopy glass effects, pilot crew figures in the cockpit and interactive checklists. A full operations manual is also included along with a paint kit. The package is available on Just Flight's website for £24.99.
