The Battle of France is over: the Battle of Britain is about to begin

The Battle of France is over: the Battle of Britain is about to begin”. Deze beroemde woorden van Winston Churchill kennen we allemaal. De daaropvolgende slag om Engeland maakte de Spitfire een waar icoon. Desondanks was de eigenlijke held de Hurricane aangezien dit toestel in veel grotere getale beschikbaar was en voor meer overwinningen zorgde dan welke Spitfire dan ook. Maar wat zijn Spitfires toch prachtig, het “begon” allemaal met de Spitfire MK1, en deze succesvolle serie eindigde met de prachtige Spitfire PR Mk.XIX. Ergens daar tussenin zat de MK IXc. Ontwikkelaar FlyingIron Simulations werkt aan deze prachtige onderscheppingsjager voor MSFS. En wat doen ze hun best zeg! Alles wordt uit de kast getrokken om van deze add-on een echte “must have” te maken. Niet voor niets mag ze al oprecht een study model genoemd worden. Hier vind je alle info.

 

 

Key Features:

3D Cockpit Model built from Heritage Flight Simulations incredibly detailed & millimeter accurate CAD Model

The model is a perfect replica of the Spitfire Mk IX cockpit, down to the smallest detail, and is used for the production of HFS’s amazing cockpit replica (available here 6).

This is of course backed up by our usual ultra-high Artwork standards across the entire aircraft – the in-game screenshots say more here than we ever could!

Professional Wwise Sound Design by an experienced Sound Engineer

This release marks our greatest achievement in sound design so far, by a long mile, thanks to the power of Wwise (the industry leader in game audio-engineering). All sounds have been professionally recorded from a real Spitfire Mk IX. We have splashed out here to obtain an exhaustive Spitfire sound pack, professionally recorded by an Audio studio for the purpose of simulation & game development. It has been worth it! The audio experience is incredibly immersive and enhances the experience significantly!

Extensively researched, detailed and realistic Flight Model

Asobo has developed an enormously complex, detailed and realistic set of Flight Modelling tools that we have fully implemented to build our Spitfire FM from the ground up. Our experience in developing our Spitfire Mk IX for X-plane 11, as well as our recent experience developing Flight Models inside 3 different simulation platforms, has allowed us to quickly build a highly accurate Flight Model that not only flies ‘by the numbers’, but just feels ■■■■ good.

We will also be including several variants of the Spitfire, either on or shortly after release. This includes:

  • A clipped wing variant (Mk IXe)
  • Merlin 66 engine limited to +16lb Boost
  • Merlin 70, unlocked to it’s full +25lb Boost. Optimized for higher altitudes
