Unveiling a comprehensive addition to the Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020, the Dornier Do 335, in both its iconic Pfeil and trainer Ameisenbär variants, offers a unique blend of historical aviation and modern flight simulation experience. Let's delve into the technicalities and enhancements this freeware mod brings to your virtual skies.

Do 335 in flight in MSFS (2020 release) after installing this freeware add-on.Technical Overview

The Dornier Do 335 stands out with its push-pull configuration, a distinctive feature that sets it apart from other twin-engine designs. This layout, with one engine at the front and another at the rear, drastically reduces aerodynamic drag, lending to the aircraft's high-speed capabilities.

Enhancements and Features

  • Performance Tweaks: Originally maxing at 180 knots, the mod elevates the Do 335's speed capabilities to a formidable 260 knots, pushing the boundaries of its historical prowess.
  • Alarm System: A realistic alarm feature activates when exceeding 260 knots, reinforcing the importance of speed management in this high-performance aircraft.
  • Updated Flaps Mechanism: The single-seater Pfeil variant sees an enhancement in its flaps functionality, improving its aerodynamic control and realism.
  • CFG Title Edit: Both aircraft now appear accurately titled in-game, enhancing the user interface and selection experience.

Historical Context

As a heavy fighter developed by Dornier for WWII, the Do 335 was remarkable for its era. Its speed, attributed to its innovative engine layout, was unmatched by other piston-engined aircraft of the time. The two-seater trainer version, the Ameisenbär, mirrors this performance while offering a dual-pilot experience.

Future Updates

The developer hints at forthcoming enhancements, including potential improvements in camera functionality and lighting. These updates are poised to augment the realism and immersion for virtual pilots.

For enthusiasts of historical aircraft and fans of high-speed flight, the MSFS Dornier Do 335 mod offers an engaging and technically rich experience. Its unique design and enhanced features promise to bring a new level of authenticity and challenge to the Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 platform.
