The Highest Rated Microsoft Add-Ons Ever Created Now Available In One Box!

Dallas, TX August 22, 2006 - Shockwave Productions and Wild Hare Entertainment celebrate their newly formed partnership by making two of Shockwave Productions critically acclaimed flight sim add-ons available in one box. Aircraft PowerPack for Microsoft Flight Simulator X®, Microsoft Flight Simulator 9® and Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 3®, will be available October with a suggested retail price of $29.99.

"...Shockwave has established itself as the boldest and probably the best developer of payware add-ons for one of PC gaming's all-time greatest franchises."

The Aircraft PowerPack add-on includes:

Wings of Power: Heavy Bombers and Jets originally released for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004®, is now compatible with the highly anticipated Microsoft Flight Simulator X®.

Wings of Power: Heavy Bombers and Jets for Microsoft Flight Simulator X® raises the bar by adding eight meticulously created aircraft, visuals, and missions to Microsoft's latest and greatest flight simulator.



  • Gorgeously constructed aircraft, inside and out, down to the last rivet
  • Fully clickable cockpits with authentic working gauges
  • 3D cockpits so real, they look just like their 2D rendered counterparts
  • The latest wind-tunnel technology helps to create for the most authentic, fluid flying qualities, including complex spins and stalls
  • Enhanced lighting visual effects
  • Fly the famous heavy bombers of WWII and the ingenious German jet technology that opposed them

Featured Aircraft


  • B17F and B17G "Flying Fortress"
  • B29A "Super Fortress"
  • B24D and B24J "Liberator"
  • PB4Y-2 "Privateer"
  • Lancaster BIII and "Grand Slam"
  • Ar234 "Blitz Bomber"
  • Ta183 "Huckebein"

Also Included in Aircraft PowerPack

FirePower for Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 3®, immerses the player in realistic air combat like never before in over 50 missions.

"...Some add-ons bolt new features onto games, and others make good games better, but the rarest mod is one that transforms a decent title into something truly outstanding."

Experience revolutionary, explosive, special effects. Witness towering explosive blasts, aircraft being torn in half, and smoke drifting thousands of feet above the battlefields. Shrapnel will fly, tanks will blow, and guns will shred their targets to pieces.

The airplanes, their flight models and the weapon effects were built with the input from over thirty real Warbird pilots, authentic military test data and real world combat footage. Under the hood, you will find every aircraft, building, and vehicle reacting precisely as they did when you unleash all of the newly designed weapons. Specific targets will require specific weapons, just like the real thing.

FirePower is so real you may find all you ever do is attack anything that has the misfortune of crossing your sights.

As an added exclusive bonus the Aircraft PowerPack includes the visually stunning Wings of Power P 51D "Mustang"... as a playable aircraft in the combat environment of FirePower for Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 3®.
