FSX Northrop Grumman B-2A Stealth Bomber for FSX SP2/Acceleration. The B-2A Spirit is the newest bomber in the USAF inventory. The B-2A, sometimes called the "Stealth Bomber," was designed using sophisticated low-observable technologies that give the aircraft a very low radar cross section (very small "blip" on the radar screen). The B-2A is capable of delivering both conventional and nuclear weapons against heavily defended targets. Model comes with customized 2-D panel, No VC and customized sound set. Original model by Ruggero Osto, converted to FSX by High Flight Simulations / B.C. Selb. (See also B2APNLFX.ZIP)

Editorial

As someone with half-fascination half-horror at the fact that stealth bombers are actually a thing, I installed this mod for FSX with a bit of hesitance.

I’m not a huge fan of military hardware, especially not in this kind of guise – it was nearly enough to put me off using something like to be honest. However, I had heard great things about this mod and decided that it was time to give it a go.

How did I feel flying around the skies in this aircraft, then? Was it quite as terrifying as I thought it was going to be?

Detail

The level of detail on the actual model itself is massively impressive, doing an expert job of capturing the real power and class of the old Grumman B-2A.

Although it’s relatively simple in its design, this mod does a fantastic job of capturing just how it should feel and the way that it should look up close. The smooth textures look great and give it that faceless look, which is more or less what the real thing looks like – it’s got custom sounds to make it really sound the part as well as look it expertly.

It’s this attention to detail that made this so fun to fly for me. It not only captured that level of realism with ease but it also made sure that the whole system felt like a piece of cake to get my head around – from the new 2D panels to the incredible speed of the aircraft.

Precision

One thing that immediately peaked my interest, though, was the inclusion of the numerous little features that helped to make it feel as dynamic as possible.

The lack of a virtual cockpit is one thing but the mod makes up for it in due style with plenty of additions to help make it feel as realistic as it possibly could. It’s this hard work and range of additions that made this feel so welcoming – despite coming from a background far more inclined with civilian aircraft, I managed to get to grips with this fairly quickly.

Quality

The level of quality throughout is just sublime. It flies like a demon and gives you the real understanding that what you are flying with is far more than the rather simple image that it promotes. This is a piece of devastating military hardware and the sheer speeds that it can move at is simply breath-taking.

I was a bit overwhelmed after my first few usages of this mod but over time I’ve quite happily grown accustomed to its unique nature. It’s something that’s hard to control but deeply rewarding when you finally work out the nuances behind it.

So far the best b2 out there I downloaded another one which used what looks to be a passenger airlines insides. it flew well not as good as this one. The issue with the other one is I couldn't break 480 knots. Thats using the gps ground speed. The knots in the air wouldn't go over 370ish. Thank you for giving this one the actual performance numbers.
