F4F-4 Wildcat

Compatible with: FSX and FS2004

Grumman designed the F4F as the first carrier based monoplane. The F4F-4 model had more powerful engine, increased armament, self-sealing fuel tanks, armor, and folding wings than the earlier variants. Eventually, Grumman built 1,168 aircraft which was used mostly by the US Navy and US Marines in early World War II.

In particular, the Wildcat fought in the early Pacific battles in the Coral Sea, Midway and Guadalcanal. It also flew in support of the invasion of North Africa in 1942. Massimo Taccoli and Dennis Seeley modeled this warbird for FSX, FS2004 and FS2002.

F6F-5 Hellcat

The carrier based Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat fighter-bomber was one of the most successful and most feared of the Allied aircraft.

Hellcat pilots were responsible for more than 76% of the confirmed U.S. carrier-based victories. In two years, Hellcats achieved 5,156 victories; an outstanding 19:1 kill-to-loss ratio.

The single-seat Hellcat was a follow-up to the F4F-3 Wildcat after early US Navy combat experience. It incorporated major design changes including a low-mounted wing, wider retractable landing gear, a more powerful engine, improved cockpit armor plating and increased ammunition capacity.

The F6F-5 variant had a redesigned engine cowl, new ailerons, a strengthened tail and a water-injection system for the engine, which added 10% to the takeoff performance and increased its armament-carrying capabilities. The F6F-5 was first flown in April 1944, and production continued through November 1945. It was credited with over three-quarters of the US Navy's air-to-air kills in the war.

P-61 Black Widow

The Night Fighter

For World War II, only one US plane was specifically designed to fight during the dark of night - the P-61B Black Widow. It proved to be successful against both the German Luftwaffe and the Imperial Japanese.

To quote the U.S. Army Air Corps, the need was for an aircraft that could accomplish: "the interception and destruction of hostile aircraft in flight during periods of darkness or under conditions of poor visibility". The Northrup Corp. dutifully responded with this powerful twin with very long endurance (8 hours of duty) to locate and destroy enemy aircraft.

Includes 2 liveries, Moon Light Serenade and Swing Shift Skipper

Catalina Platinum

The PBY Catalina has a long history of service to the military, mostly with the US Navy. During World War II, the PBY was often equipped with bombs, torpedoes, depth charges and machine guns and used as for anti-submarine warfare, reconnaisance, search and rescue and supply transport..

The PBY-5 entered production in 1940 with high power engines that made the aircraft suitable for reliable, long-range flight. The Catalina also served the military of allies including Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Sweden. Following the war, many were converted to aerial firefighters.

As you can see, Dave Eckert and Warwick Carter have created a superb PBY-5A model in high detail with Ken Mitchell doing the instrumentation. Renowned artist Garry Smith has painstakenly delivered the PBY's liveries. And sound expert Aaron Swindle has produced a new, authentic sound set for the Cat.

This superb PBY-5A Catalina has four colorful liveries and a paint kit for those who want to addtheir favorites. We invite you to take the Catalina out for a free test flight to enjoy the view in this classic aircraft from a bygone era.
