JustFlight has released some packshots for its upcoming FSX add-on, RAF Vulcan, featuring the title aircraft. The add-on features an incredibly detailed Vulcan model complete with animations. The virtual and 2d cockpits are detailed to the level we have come to expect from JustFlight and the flight dynamics were engineered at tested by an actual Vulcan pilot.
There is no concrete release date for the add-on yet, but you can find the official product page here.
The Avro Vulcan’s beautiful lines and distinctive shape make it an icon of cold-war aviation. The Vulcan first flew in 1952, entered RAF service in 1957 and the final Vulcan flight was back in 1993. Thankfully, the last of these milestones has changed – Vulcan XH558 is airborne again thanks to a Heritage Lottery Fund grant and the tireless work of its dedicated fans.
Soon to be updated for FSX compatibility, RAF Vulcan includes a faithful model from acclaimed developers PSS of XH558 as it appears currently, an additional eight all-new liveries from some of the aircraft involved in the Falklands conflict of 1982, and some of the preserved aircraft in the UK.
RAF Vulcan contains a total of eighteen examples in different Squadron liveries and with different model variations, including the 2K air-to-air refuelling tanker variant and those carrying the Blue Steel British nuclear cruise missile, the Shrike anti-radar missile as used in the Falklands, and the ‘project cancelled’ Skybolt missiles.
