    T-2 Buckeye's Visual Features

    RAZBAM's T-2 Buckeyes are visually accurate and detailed inside and outside. All renderings are true to photos I found on the Internet. Surface textures, shadows, reflections, and other attributes are very good. I found nothing about appearances to fault.

    T-2 Buckeye's Instruments

    The instrument panel overall differs obviously from most aircraft for three reasons: 1) The overall arrangement of instruments is different. 2) Some familiar instruments are missing. There are no OBIs, ADFs, HSIs, GPS, or autopilot. 3) Some instruments are unusual. The TACAN Course Indicator (TCI) and the Bearing-Heading-Distance Indicator (BHDI) provides specific TACAN information, which is unavailable in most FSX aircraft. The attitude indicator shows whether the aircraft is climbing or diving. The flaps indicator and landing gear indicator are within a single instrument, and both are easy to read. Other instruments are unique to military aircraft such as "liquid oxygen." This instrument panel consequently requires some acclimation, but anybody with basic understanding of aircraft instruments can figure out most of the T-2's instruments.

      Great review. Throughout the early part of my career I encountered these aircraft from time to time. They seemed like real beasts!

      What's the difference between a "smooth glide" and a "controllable dive"?
