As far as designs and styles go, very few things in simulation can surprise me – however, upon hopping into the cockpit of this model you can quickly find that the design and style of this is a bit surprising, a bit different.
Whilst I haven’t had the pleasure of spending much time in the cockpit of something as fun and as unique as this, I did find quite quickly that the FSX WW2 fighter Spiteful MK XVI was something that I had to get to grips with quite quickly. The one thing that came to my mind when looking at this was my old History classes in school, as we covered WW2 aviation quite a lot – nothing that I see in there, though, reminded me of this interesting piece of history in front of me!
This was a unique improvement on the old Spitfire which we all know about, and was quite revolutionary as it introduced into play things like the laminar flow wing amongst other new features. It was eventually upgraded and improved to be fitted with a new Griffon 10 engine, which would become a massive difference maker over the years with its level of performance.
It was first tested in late 1947, and was capable of hitting speeds of 494mp/h across heights of 27,500ft! This remake, though, is capable of hitting 430 knots as well; this means that you are flying something which pays incredible close attention to the model which it has been built to represent closely.
The model is made to be used within FSX so it carries a lot of the little design hallmarks that made FSX models so increasingly popular, and also makes it nice and simple to get into the swing of things. The improvement on the aircraft, though, can be attributed to the excellent work carried out on the actual textures and the body. A.F. Scrub has created some truly outstanding designs that do everything they can to promote and push the aircraft forward and to make it look the very best that it can.
I was hugely impressed by this, but moreso I was impressed with the way that it works and the development style that it brings to the table; it’s very different to most craft of its size so it’s a great new learning curve for pilots who aren’t used to this kind of aircraft.
More importantly, though, it will help to push and promote the right way of understanding and then falling in love with your fighter as it truly captures that deep and engaging design – I was a huge fan of this model from the minute I used it and hours of enjoyment has not dulled that enjoyment one bit.
If you like this kind of aircraft and want to experience something new and exciting, you should start off with this more or less right away.
