Now available from Icarus Golden Age is the Curtiss Hawk II, a single seat biplane fighter used by the U.S. Navy. Included are seven textures, detailed virtual cockpit, new effects and more. For details, click on Read More.

 The Curtiss Hawk II represented the end of a lengthy period of a Boeing monopoly on single seat fighter sales to the US Navy. This is not to say that Curtiss products or those of other manufacturers were unsatisfactory or that Boeing had an unethical relationship with US Navy procurement officers since Curtiss had sold a number of two-seaters to the Navy during this period.

  • 7 texture sets
  • specular reflectivity (dinamic shine)
  • detailed virtual cockpit with animations
  • NEW EFFECTS
  • 2D panel with gauges
  • 2D panel pop-ups for GPS and throttle lever
  • Multiresolution
  • Shock absorber movement
  • Wheel rotation

Major operators included Bolivia(9), China (50), Colombia (26), Siam (12) and Turkey (24). Except for the Turkish machines all of these Hawks saw intensive combat service. Additionally Hawk II fighters were sold in ones, two's and threes to various small scale operators including the famous two Hawks that were sold to WW1 ace Ernst Udet.

You can buy it now at Icarus website.
