Product information "VC10 Professional - Standard, Super & RAF"

The VC10 is widely regarded as one of the most graceful jet airliners ever created, with its long slim fuselage, clean angled-back wings and graceful swept-back tail surfaces.

The aircraft was designed by Vickers-Armstrongs to fly on long-distance BOAC routes between the UK and Africa and needed to be able to operate from hot and high airports with short runways. This resulted in an aircraft with superb performance, second only to the supersonic Concorde in terms of speed for a jet airliner. The VC10 was introduced into RAF service in 1965, operating in the transport, cargo and in-flight refuelling roles, until its retirement in 2013, nearly 50 years later.

VC10 Professional for FSX and P3D includes accurately modelled Standard and Super civilian variants and C1K, K3 and K4 military variants of the VC10 in a variety of liveries covering their time in airline and RAF service.

Included models:
Five accurately modelled civilian and military variants, built using real-world aircraft plans and access to real aircraft:

  • BOAC Standard VC10 (Type 1101)
  • Super VC10 - more powerful Conway engines, additional fuel capacity and a longer fuselage
  • VC10 C1K transport/tanker - Standard VC10 fuselage with Super VC10 wings, engines and tail, main-deck cargo door, wing-mounted refuelling pods
  • VC10 K3 tanker - Super VC10 with main-deck cargo door, centreline hose drum unit (HDU) and wing-mounted refuelling pods, sealed passenger doors
  • VC10 K4 tanker - Super VC10, no main-deck cargo door, centreline hose drum unit (HDU) and wing-mounted refuelling pods

Model Features:

  • Many detailed animations, including:
    • Accurate landing gear operations
    • Authentic flaps/slat action
    • Variable-incidence tailplane
    • Windshield wipers (separate Captain and Co-Pilot controls)
    • Passenger doors (fore and aft) and cargo doors (port and starboard)
    • Animated pilots
    • Thrust reverser doors on outboard enginesRetractable taxi/landing lights
    • Refuelling hoses
  • Ground equipment (air stairs and baggage carts)
  • Specular map to give realistic light effects on the aircraft surfaces
  • Bump mapping to give a more realistic 3D effect to aircraft liveries

Cockpit:

  • 3D cockpit with virtually all the hundreds of switches, knobs and levers animated and functional. Many gauges are modelled in 3D for smooth operation.
  • All four flight crew positions modelled (Captain, Co-Pilot, Flight Engineer and Navigator)
  • Cockpit textures feature wear and tear to produce an authentic environment
  • Cockpit lighting with atmospheric instrument backlighting
  • Special 'baked' textures have been used to present a well-used look and feel to the cockpit area and controls
  • Fully modelled Flight Engineer station with fuel, engine, electrical, anti-ice and hydraulic controls (automatically configured in a 'ready for take-off' state when the aircraft is first loaded, allowing you to get airborne within seconds)
  • Many features have been added to help with usability such as a switch to hide the control yokes for a better view of the instruments and pre-set angled views for the overhead panel, centre pedestal and Flight Engineer station
  • Animated Captain's arm-rest for improved visibility of centre pedestal
  • Ability to integrate third-party weather radar
  • Split flap/slat lever with the ability to extend slats without deploying flaps
  • NAV 1/2 and ADF 1/2 radios feeding CDIs, VOR and ADF indicators for easy navigation
  • GPS unit included for easy navigation
  • Numerous warning annunciators will illuminate on fault detection and a functional engine fire warning and protection/extinguishing system are built into the cockpit
  • Animated cockpit side windows

Systems:

  • Custom-coded fuel system with wing and centre tanks, fuel transfer and jettison, cross-feed and LP/HP cock controls
  • Custom-coded autopilot with pitch and bank hold, ability to navigate via VOR/GPS and autothrottle with IAS/MACH hold capabilities
  • Thrust-reverse system which, like the real aircraft, is only available on outboard engines
  • Realistic trim lever operation with rate of tailplane movement proportional to the rate of trim lever displacement from the central position
  • Aircraft configuration system that will allow you to choose between 'cold & dark' or 'ready for take-off'
  • Fully compatible with default control assignments (lighting controls, autopilot controls, HP cock levers etc.) and [Ctrl]+[E] autostart
  • Realistic engine start procedures using ground air supply and cross-bleed
  • Simulated powered flying control units (PFCUs) – loss of electrical power or manual isolation of PFCUs will render flying controls (ailerons, elevator, rudder and spoilers) inoperative, as in the real aircraft. Each control surface can be individually isolated.
  • Custom-coded Delco Carousel IV-A Inertial Navigation System (INS)
  • Many other custom systems – engine management, electrical, hydraulic, pressurisation, lighting and navigation
