This remake of the Lockheed/Kawasaki P-3C Orion is a hugely useful asset to have in your FSX hanger, as this is an aircraft with plenty of features that you will want to try out. As an aircraft, it’s something that manages to capture the imagination and has been used for many years in various formats.

The aircraft brings a huge amount of interest to the table in that it provides the speed and power of a much smaller jet in what is a pretty large body. If you’ve always wanted to try this model out then this is one of the finest recreations of it yet.

This package works in full compatibility with FS2004, and has been modified and updated to work with FSX. However, some minor compatibility issues still exist that are unable to be sorted. This creation by Hiroaki Kubota and Daisuke Yamamoto is one of the most impressive in terms of capturing the power and the feel of the Orion correctly, though. Despite these minor compatibility issues and problems, you can easily get to grips with this aircraft with a few days of practice and learning as it still works in just about every sense that is required.

The Orion itself is an aircraft that comes with a huge reputation, having served for just under 30 years. It first appeared in 1961 and served a prominent role in various military formats until 1990. In that timeframe, it was used continuously by groups such as the US Navy, the Japanese MARITIME Self-Defense Force and the Royal Australian Air Force.

All of these groups, some of the most impressive in the world, regularly swore by this aircraft until it eventually was phased out in favor of more modern models such as the Lockheed P-7. The aircraft itself, though, comes with an incredibly adaptability and a unique ability to get through even some of the most challenging situations.

It has been through several developments and changes over the years thanks to the updates in electronics and in the way that aviation has been handled. As such, it’s still used in minor capacities across the planet for anti-sub warfare, reconnaissance and patrolling. However, it still holds an incredibly positive reputation because it still manages to handle extremely effectively whilst giving an easy example of why it is so highly thought of.

Eventually, it will be phased out and replaced with the P-8A Poseidon, but you’ll always be able to enjoy the class and the style of the Orion through this recreation. If you have always wanted to see what the Orion would be like to fly then this package can be the perfect opportunity to be able to do that.

I fell in love with this plane as soon as I flew it in FSX. Great sounds and flight characteristics. The ONLY thing I can find wrong with this masterpiece is it won't start from a cold start. Its a real shame not to be able to use in Air Hauler.

Cool P-3. Flies very much like the real deal. The exterior detail is stunning. Works very well on FS9!

Just like in real life - you have to fly her to the ground.
