    Accu-Sim P-40 For P3D v4

    The rugged P-40 with its Flying Tigers shark-toothed paint scheme may very well be the world's most recognized image of an American Word War II fighter aircraft. Yet, the P-40 with all of its fame, still remains misunderstood even today. It was called underpowered by some who perhaps, were quick to judge and never understood its true potential. But if you look at this aircraft, and the facts that surround it, you will see quite a different story. One fact that cannot be overlooked is, when in the hands of Colonel Chennault, commander of the AVG (American Volunteer Group), his then controversial hit and run tactics ended up giving that group the worlds highest kill ratio which is still not matched to date. It was not without its flaws, but when you compare the technologies and performance against aircraft being developed by other nations at that time, you will see quite a remarkable aircraft.

    Part of the secret of the P-40 was in its rugged Allison engine and its high dive speeds. Some squadrons pushed its capabilities well beyond its official limits in combat. This high power matched with an air frame that held onto energy better than the Japanese counterparts, meant an experienced pilot could command the fight. He could decide when to engage and when to escape. When we read about Middle East and Australian squadrons over-boosting their Allison engines, we couldn't wait to Accu-Sim this bird and experience it ourselves. This resulted in us digging even deeper into not just the function of this engine at such high power levels, but the sound. Additionally, other systems like the P-40's unique hydraulics required us to take our Accu-Sim to yet another level of detail. You may notice when a fighter raises its gear, the gear sometimes comes up at different times. Instead of us simply and without condition, telling the aircraft to raise the gear one leg at a time, we decided to dig deeper and create the entire underlying system, allowing whatever behaviours be the result of actual systems at work. In fact, this is the philosophy behind Accu-Sim from the start. Build it right, and enjoy the experience.

    When looking to the construction, the newest modelling and advanced material-making techniques results in an aircraft that you can just spend not just minutes but hours admiring the beauty of the shape and look of the aircraft. Together, with professionally recorded sounds and physics, the end result is the sense of having a complete, real, majestic, raw, flying machine stuffed inside your computer. We hope you enjoy your new beautiful bird, and hope you learn to fly and treat her well.
