Interested in the ultimate Handley Page Victor K2 based around the Alpha Simulations latest release?
The Ultimate Handley Page Victor K2 external model by Alpha Simulations is a highly accurate model of the HP Victor K2 in both - hemp livery and the camo livery.
It is noteworthy for achieving accurate simulation in panel, gauge and flight characteristics. This model has several exciting features such as:
- speed brake that is both full and variable
- detailed design of the inboard flaps, correct flap settings and a very accurate replication of the inboard flap structure
- gear mechanics that have been correctly modeled
- nose art that is strikingly similar and accurate
- distinctive gold tinted main cockpit windows
- accurate landing light movement
- complete set of tanking lights with proper tanking markings
- extending Artouse AAPP (APU) inlet and retracing RAT (Ram Air Turbine) scoops
- accurate set-up of pitch trim over the elevator movement
- opening and closing crew hatch
- correct navigation and beacon lighting
- correct retracting/extending landing lights
- realistic dynamic shine on the fuselage
- accurate air brake which can be set up to become proportional and an accurate camo version.
The Handley Page Victor, the British jet bomber aircraft produced by the Handley Page Aircraft Company during the Cold War, on which the Ultimate Handley Page Victor external model is based, was the third and final of the V-bombers that had provided most of Britain's nuclear deterrents after the end of the second World War.
This jet bomber has also featured in popular culture in the 1962 British movie comedy The Iron Maiden. Many sequences in the movie showed the aircraft in various stages - close-up, taking off, climbing, flying past and landing with parachute deployed. The last Victor aircraft was retired from Royal Navy on 15th October 1993. It was also the last V-bomber to retire from operations after being used in service as in-flight refueling tanker during the Falkland War and 1991 Gulf War. As of now, only five Victors have survived apart from few cockpit sections.
