FSX Update For The Douglas A2D Skyshark. The A2D-1 was developed as a turboprop replacement for the iconic AD Skyraider series in the late 1940s. It was somewhat larger, faster and could carry a heavier weapons load. Unfortunately, the Allison T-40 series turboprop ran into many development delays mostly regarding reliability of the gear box which prevented the Sky Shark from being ordered into full production. It was the end of the line for prop driven attack aircraft for the US Navy. This is a major panel update for my previous FSX update to make the interior and panel look a lot more realistic. In addition to the three original textures by Paul Clawson there are two new "what-if" repaints based on textures by Juan Anotnio Martinez Castro, which he had designed for the FS2002 model by Kazunori Ito. The package also features exhaust smoke, better props and better reticule. Original native FSX model by Paul Clawson and 2D panel by Kazunori Ito. Two new repaints, new completely reworked VC as well as new gauge configuration by Michael Pook. The model may work in FS2004 and P3D (v3). By Michael Pook.
