Icarus has just announced the release of their Vickers Valentia for CFS2 and FS2002. The aircraft includes multiresolution full animations with working virtual cockpit gauges, and a double gunner animation, RAF pilot textures, and exclusive new weapons.

The Valentia was much used as a Night Bomber in the early stages of the War in North Africa and Eastern Mediterranian by No's 70 and 216 Sqns, and was renowned for its slow wallowing flight, which was an advantage in some respects when being attacked by the much faster opposing modern Aircraft, as its adversary would often misjudge and overshoot!
