The B-47 was the first all-jet production bomber in the Air Force and was the backbone of SAC's bomber fleet in the 1950s. This is a complete new model based on my original B47 released earlier this year. The upgrades are fully animated gears, with opening/closing gear doors as well as bomb bays for those CFS enthusiast that would like to use the B47 to bomb the enemy, it also has stearable nose wheel, flaps, rudder, and tail, with clear cockpit glass (blue) and pilots, spinners, smoke effects, and finally ALL NEW textures!.Model, paint and dynamics by: Rey Lopez.

Editorial

Having always been equally terrified as I was impressed by a Stratojet, I decided to finally try one out properly. As such I fired up FS2004 and added this Boeing B-47 Stratojet in to see what I made of it. This all-jet production bomber was produced as the first of the Air Forces’ bomber fleets in the 50s. Since then it has inspired a generation of barely believable bomber aircraft that can decide the fates of thousands in one single run

Threateningly Fun

Based on the old B47, the Stratojet was an aircraft that was supposed to add more. I can confirm that, having used the old design by Rey Lopez for the B47, this goes to the next level entirely. It’s a completely new model which is based on the original, making the most of full animations for effects.

From fully animated gears to opening and closing gear doors, as well as workable bomb bays, this feels authentic. Whilst not a huge fan of why this aircraft exists (blowing people up isn’t very nice) I love the manufacturing side of it. If you want to go about bombing somewhere on the map, then you can with this – it’s destructively addictive!

Design & Detail

The design elements are hugely impressive, too. from the steerable nose wheels to the flaps and rudders, everything works as it should. The clear cockpit glass is a great thing, too, making it easy to see what’s ahead of you whilst providing a fantastic reflection.

From the textures to the pilot models and even smoke effects, this goes all the way in terms of detail and design. The mode, the paint and the dynamics are all taken from authentic sources so this flies as it should. Overall, I found the aircraft to be as impressive to fly as I did to look at!

The detail inside the cockpit was massive, in comparison to what we’re used to. It feels the busy and frantic place it should be when you use something like a Stratojet. It also holds so much power and potential that you can’t help but feel a little drink from all that potential!

Just imagine what it would be like to fly one of these things in real-life. It’s all that I could do when flying this grumbling, booming fortress through the skies. I have to say, then, that the fact it makes me feel this way is a testament to the quality and attention to detail that the developer has put into the aircraft.

If you enjoy military aviation, or you want to experience it through this, please do so. It’s an education, and not the kind that you will wish you had never signed up for!

Great site for a 80 year guy who is retired and has limited change. Thank you.
