DBS AI/Simlandmarks present Livery Expansion Pack 1 for Tu-154M AI Project.

The DBS website contains a wide range of excellent add-on packages that are designed to offer the perfect level of performance and suitability for those who want reality as much as they want to have some fun. In this package, you get access to all the help that you need in making the entire process a whole lot of fun.

Additionally, the updated configuration files tallies well to ensure that it feels far more personal than it did before this point, ensuring that it all works out and moves in the manner that it was supposed to, capturing the real-life version perfectly.

In fact, the panel.cfg file makes some significant changes to ensure that the entire package can run at its very maximum. This ensures that you can get the most out of the panels and the cockpit itself, making you learn that the whole thing is suitable for use and can be used to utilize full control of the TU-154M.

The TU-154 is a fantastically designed Russian model that carries over 50 years of history with it. First put to service in 1968, it serves briefly even today and has been a long-term member of Russian aviation circles. With this add-on you will finally get to the see aircraft taken on by the professionals, made to look the very best that it can whilst making sure it all goes together and really looks the part.

The Tu-154 holds a rather patchy safety record, though, with 39 fatal accidents occurring that involve this aircraft. This has usually been caused by matters unrelated to the aircraft, but due to the fact that the aircraft tended to be overused in demanding schedules back in the day. These aircraft were subject to rough treatment for many years and typically struggled to maintain their look and their feel due to this.

That being said, they are still being used today for a reason – and still being the subject of modifications, too! This package will give you a full appreciation of the depth and the range that this aircraft tends to carry and the sheer power that it once had. At the moment, the aircraft is only being used for military and charter operations these days as passenger flights have simply become too dangerous.

The model provide in this, though, is a bit more nostalgic and therefore will give you a much greater level of performance than the rather declined models of today. If you want to see what one of the genuine peaks of Russian aviation looked like once upon a time, you should consider checking this out without a doubt, it really does the service and quality of the aircraft some justice!

If you want to try and fly something a bit more interesting and engaging than your typical craft, this can be the perfect way to try out something a little bit new without having to push the boat too far out!
