    Virtavia P2V-7 Neptune v2 for FSX Steam Edition

    Lockheed's P-2V Neptune was a Cold War maritime patrol aircraft that was involved in many surveillance operations during the 1950s and 1960s. The details of these exploits are still not entirely public. These missions could be extremely dangerous, the Soviet Air Force being given tacit approval to shoot down the Neptunes on sight without paying too much heed to whether or not the plane was actually in international air space. The most famous Neptune was a P2V-1, the "Truculent Turtle", which flew non-stop without refueling from Perth, Australia, to Columbus, Ohio, a distance of 11,235 miles. This type, P2V-7, was first flown in 1954. In 1962 it was re-designated as the SP-2H, OP-2E, or AP-2H. The Neptune served until the mid 1970's, when it was replaced by the P-3 Orion.

    This model is a 2020 remastered version of the original 2006 package for FSX Steam Edition.

      Virtavia...I would like to see the old Convair series aircraft done in a professional manner.
      How about developing the 440...complete with a VC. I know you guys can do it.
      Yes, I know there is a freeware version.....I would like to see it polished to payware.
      I would donate the audio for it!

      Cheers,

      A really great FSX Steam A/C would be the Douglas "Wide body" AD-5. A lot of old Navy Aircrews and Aviators would really love this one!
