Product information "Aeroplane Heaven - Curtiss SB2C Helldiver"
This is a brand-new simulation of the last purpose-built dive-bomber used by the US Navy.
The Curtiss SB2C package from Aeroplane Heaven includes the -3 and -4 variants of 'The Beast' for FSX and P3D, with details such as two animated crew members, gunner's cockpit, simulated dive bombing with droppable bombs, folding wings and a working tail-hook for carrier landings.
The flight dynamics in this unique simulation have been engineered to give a challenging, authentic flight experience based on contemporary reports and pilot notes. This is the most authentic rendition of this venerable USN dive bomber available and will provide many hours of challenging, simulation pleasure.

Effects have been remade for compatibility with P3D V4; they have changed for all other simulators as a side effect of compatibility with this simulator, tested in FSX:A, P3D V2.5, P3D v3.4 and P3D V4.x - those pesky rear guns are working (stock unmodified versions of the tested simulators)
