The Creation By Col.Robert K Suchke one hell of a C.O. Frank D Merrill


The Creations
(Airborne Version)
And the Lord God spoke forth unto the heavens and said "Let there be Airborne". The earth did tremble and quake, and the waters did rise up. The clouds did part, and there came forth a multitude of parachutes which filled the sky. God looked down and saw that this was good. And they were good, for they were AIRBORNE!! God then spoke forth unto the land and said "Let there be Rangers". And all at once the day turned into darkness, and the winds did howl, and the mountains crumbled into the sea. The great rocks did part and there sprang forth a horde of Mephistopheles' disciples wearing Ranger tabs and carrying all manner of deadly weapons. God looked down and saw that this was bad. And they were bad, for they were RANGERS !! Then God spoke forth thrice unto the sky, the earth and the sea, saying "Let there be Special Forces". Lightning did flash and thunder did echo across the sky. Mountains spewed forth molten rock and rained down fire upon the land. Tidal waves surged against the shore, and despair, disorder and turmoil did prevail. Forthwith, there did appear a band of twelve extraordinary men. A few came from beneath the waves. Others jumped from the skies, and still more stalked silently from the forests. Each one was in camouflage battle dress, wearing a green beret. Working together, they brought peace unto the land. God looked down and saw that this was amazing. And they were amazing, for they were SPECIAL FORCES!! Besides himself, God now spoke forth and commanded "Let all ye that be weak in mind and body arise and go forth". And lo, from the abyss they crawled forth with indecision and limped weakly upon the earth. God looked down and saw that they were  pathetic. And they were pathetic, for they were LEGS! !**

When I first decided to download this remake of the Cirrus, I was not really sure what to expect –what could it bring to the table that I otherwise had not seen before? Well, I was about to find out. This remake was sold to me as something that was a fresh and engaging repaint whilst also offering multiple changes to the realism of the aircraft itself.

I quickly found that during my time using this aircraft that it felt fresh and easy to manipulate in the skies, giving me something that is clear and exceptionally simple to manage.

The Performance

Performance levels were excellent – it flew very much like the real thing would have been expected to use. It also comes with a really impressive flight handling system, ensuring that it flies with the precision and care that you would hope for when using a modern aircraft system.

One thing that really surprised me, though, was just how detailed the level of performance that it could provide was. It really did a wonderful job of capturing all of the little features and details that make a simulated flight so fun to be a major part of moving forward.

The Realism

The level of realism and the overall attention to detail was another thing I felt very impressed by – it done a wonderful job of capturing what this aircraft is all about. With the level of realism in the cockpit as well as the exterior of the aircraft, it was very easy for me to see where it was in terms of design and quality.

Given that the aircraft is so well-known for its safety elements and the ease of use that it provides, this makes a massive difference in terms of seeing a progressive change in the flight style. I felt really safe when flying this model, as if I was at home in the comfort of the real thing.

The quality put into this design really is something that I would love to get to grips with further, but so far I’ve been hugely impressed with it.

The Verdict

Its attention to detail, the level of quality put into the design and also the depth of performance ensures that this feels like a lot of fun to fly around in. whilst the original aircraft is not something I had a massive amount of real-life knowledge about, I’m certainly interested in learning now!

A huge fan of the design and the precision of the features, I would happily recommend this mod to anyone who wants to experience the world of the Cirrus aircraft without having to look too far or having to get invested in any premium packages.
