We are excited to present to you the sleek, yet powerful, P-38 Lightning. We've faithfully modeled the version to a very high level of fidelity, simulating all of the important details that make the P-38 such a distinctive aircraft.
From the suggestive rumble of it's twin 1,600 hp turbo-supercharged V-12 engines, to it's deadly "Christmas tree" launch racks laden with high velocity rockets on each wing, our P-38 Lightning is designed to closely match the feeling of the real machine.
Precision Flight Dynamics
Our goal with all of our releases is always to make the aircraft as realistic as possible. As important as it is to make an virtual cockpit or external model look great, replicating how an aircraft actually handles is absolutely essential. The characteristics of an aircraft in flight, being able to recognize the natural limits placed on an airframe by it's design, the effort required to master and safely handle a powerful machine, these are traits where we aim to transform your simulator into a place where you can immersive yourself in the beauty of flight.
In our P-38L, we've tasked Bernt Stolle with creating the expertly refined flight model. Not only will you be able to fly it 'by the book', you'll be able to recreate many of the same issues that real P-38 pilots faced, including that of high-speed compressibility. Our model displays behaviour consistent with the actual aircraft; you'll need dive flaps when entering a dive, or you'll need to employ the same techniques as recommended when in a compressibility stall. Indeed, you'll have to be very mindful when flying the P-38 at it's upper limits!
Included in the package are 21 high resolution liveries, created with extreme attention to both detail and quality. Many of the included liveries are representations of P-38's that have seen service, and where available we've included the pilot and deployment notes. After all, the P-38 is not only a significant part of aviation past, but also plays a very important part in the history of WWII as well.
All P-38L users have the ability to configure and release a variety of animated armament, including fuel tanks, with the appropriate effect on aircraft appearance and performance.
Optionally, the Milviz P-38L can be installed with TacPack integration.
Selected from the multi-installer at time of installation, the TacPack version provides functionality for the P-38's gunsight, the .50 calibre machine guns, the 20mm autocannon, the 10 high velocity aircraft rockets (HVARs), as well the ability to drop 500lb bombs.
TacPack users will enjoy some extended weapons system functionality and weapons visual and audio effects - and the ability to damage the simulated environment!.
Vertical Reality Simulations' TacPack software offers stand-alone weapons and warfare platforms for both Flight Simulator X and Prepar3d. It is a payware product and are not included with your purchase from Milviz. An appropriate, platform specific version of the TacPack software is required for the above described extended functionality in the Milviz P-38L.
This package includes a TacPack enabled version; the TacPack version requires a working installation of the TacPack software (not included).
