AlphaSim Releases Lockheed U-2S

Posted on Sun, 17 Oct 2004 22:00:00 GMT

Now available from AlphaSim for FS2004 and FS2002 is the Lockheed U-2S, the most modern version of the famous Cold War "Dragon Lady" spy plane. For more information, click on Read More.

New from AlphaSim - the Lockheed U-2S! The famous Cold War spyplane, the 'Dragon Lady', is modelled here in its most up-to-date form, the unusual-looking 'S' variant. The model includes many animations, including jettisonable 'pogos'. A realistic U-2 'spaceman' pilot is included, the helmet has an animated visor. The cockpit is authentically modelled, with several mousable animations, night-lighting and v-c rain effects. Great care was taken to ensure the flight dynamics offer a realistic U-2 experience: take-off, cruise (70,000 feet) and landings must be done 'by the book' and to aid this we have included a detailed flying guide, accessible from the pilot's kneeboard. Also included is an interesting article in html format which details a flight in the real U-2S, well worth a read. For FS2004 only, price $14.00.
