Flight Replicas Messerschmitt Me-262 Rare Types

Flight Replicas have released their Messerschmitt Me-262 Rare Types for FSX.

This package contains a selection of the rarer and more exotic variants of the famous Me-262 jet fighter of WWII:

  • Me-262B-1a/U1 Two-seat Nightfighter
  • Me-262A-1a/U4 “Pulkzerstorer” with 50 mm Cannon
  • Me-262A-4a/U3 Reconnaissance

Features

  • Highly accurate VCs, each different, individually modeled after photos of those in existing period aircraft
  • 2 different types of artificial horizon, each modeled in 3D (including turnable locking rings)
  • 2 different types of Vertical Speed Indicator modeled in 3D
  • Luminescent gauge dials for night flying, just like the original
  • Cabin Ventilation lever that opens visible air scoop
  • Revi16B gunsight that folds accurately out of the way
  • Revi16B can be turned on and off
  • Revi16B tinted glass can be realistically folded out of the way
  • Nightfighter has red gunsight reticule, like the original
  • Working trigger guard and trigger on control stick
  • Accurate and working systems buttons on panel
  • Fully clickable and workable cockpits overall (except Nightfighter rear cockpit, which is limited)
  • Five different models
  • Four different textures
  • Bump mapping in selected areas
  • Carefully researched textures, including help from a major museum
  • Accurately landing gear sequence (e.g. on approach: main wheels first, them front gear)
  • Accurate Luftwaffe pilot flight suit, flight helmet and oxygen mask
  • Turn on the oxygen system and the pilot puts on his mask
  • Animated pilots
  • Exhaust cones that move with throttle setting, just like the original Jumo 004′s
  • Full flight operations manual, accurate and derived from the original
  • Written history of all the aircraft depicted.

Please note:

The Nightfighter does not have an operational radar. We would have liked to have had one, but no such gauge exists presently, and it was outside our capacities to create something so sophisticated. However, there is a gauge poly there, so that should anyone find a suitable gauge, it can be easily installed (contact support if help is needed).

The Nightfighter has a visible pilot head (only) in the front VC cockpit, to enhance realism when the user is sitting in the rear seat. If you would like to fly the Nightfighter from the front seat, the pilot head can be removed with a simple click on one of the canopy bolts (see illustration in the Manual).

The lowest-performance computer this product was tested on was a P35, E6600, ATI HD3850. There were no reported performance problems.
