Legendary Me 262 Jet Fighter/Bomber

This famous plane was included in the latest update 3.101 and is already available to Bodenplatte owners.

 
 

The list of its peculiarities includes the dangerous effect of Mach tuck at higher speeds that at first decreases its yaw stability. This yaw stability decrease not only makes the aircraft harder to handle but also warns the pilot of the increasing danger of an uncontrollable dive. While the plane is capable of reaching up to 837 kph near the ground it has good controllability at low speeds thanks to wing slats. It should be noted that the longitudinal center-of-gravity depends on the remaining fuel, ammo and modifications installed very heavily. For instance, if you remove the nose gun armor and two guns, it becomes so tail heavy with full tanks that it is dangerous to fly. Positive characteristics include good roll controls at any flight speed. All in all, the plane is surely controversial, unusual and very interesting to fly. You can customize your 262 by selecting any of its modifications:

  • EZ 42 gyro gunsight with automatic deflection calculation,
  • R4M unguided air-to-air rockets, 12 per mounting,
  • armored pilot headrest,
  • pilot back armor,
  • removal of the gun mounting armor for making the aircraft less nose-heavy,
  • removal of two Mk 108 guns,
  • fuel regulating valve that limited an excessive fuel pressure and almost completely removed the danger of engine fire from careless throttle inputs (installed on Jumo-004 B1 engines during routine maintenance since the end of 1944),
  • bomber variant capable of carrying two SC 250 or one SC 500 bombs.

Update 3.101 Released

In addition to Me 262, the latest update 3.101 includes a lot of more content, for instance, Т-34-76 made by UVZ factory in early 1943 for Tank Crew - Clash at Prokhorovka and airplanes S.E.5a and Albatros D.Va for Flying Circus - Volume I. You can read the entire list of additions and improvements HERE.

 
 

FS Expo 2019

Orlando, FL was host to FS Expo 2019 and Jason was there showcasing IL-2 to virtual pilots all weekend long. Once again, we crashed the civ-sim party and while the civilian sim-flyers were doing touch and goes in there Cessna, we were blasting bombers in the Me-262! The FS Expo continues to grow in size and popularity and several Il-2 community members stopped by the booth and whenever possible helped Jason set up, pack up and operate the booth - this was greatly appreciated by Jason and 1C Game Studios. We truly have the best community in all of flight-simming! For more information about FS Expo and next year’s event please visit www.flightsimexpo.com.

 

As promised Il-2 was showcased on an Edge 6D motion platform by Gforcefactory. We also had two other cockpits running Il-2 in glorious 4K resolution. We would like to thank Gforcefactory (www.gforcefactory.com) for supplying the motion platform. In addition, we would like to thank Virpil Controllers (www.virpil.com) for providing their joysticks and throttles and Monstertech (www.monstertech.de) for providing their awesome mounts for some of the hardware. We could not have pulled off the show without them! Please show them your support by considering their awesome products for purchase. See you again next year in Las Vegas, NV for FS Expo 2020.
