Just Flight has announced the highly anticipated Avro Vulcan for Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) is out.
The iconic delta-wing for MSFS was developed by Just Flight's in-house team following hands-on research with a real-life Vulcan B Mk. 2, XM655, based at Wellesbourne Airfield. The package includes three variants wearing 18 authentic paint schemes: the B Mk. 2 strategic bomber, K.2 Air-to-Air Refuelling and Maritime Radar Reconnaissance (MRR) variants that saw service with the Royal Air Force.
Up front, the captain and co-pilot positions are modelled with hundreds of functional switches, knobs and controls. A selection of rear crew panels are also recreated. The Vulcan features complex custom-coded systems based on real-world manuals, including electrical, fuel and engine systems. The aircraft also sports TACAN and VOR navigation systems along with a multi-function Electronic Flight Bag (EFB).
The aircraft has been modelled to a high level of detail and features 8K textures, realistic payloads (including Blue Steel, 1,000lb bombs and bomb bay tanks) and custom ground equipment. Realistic animations include dynamic wing-flex, service and cargo doors and the distinctive lift-dumpers and tail-mounted airbrake.
Other details include wear and tear based on extensive reference photos, dynamic cockpit and exterior lighting, and 3D Wwise sounds. The Vulcan is available on Just Flight's online shop for £27.99.
