Product information "Avro Vulcan B Mk. 2, K.2 & MRR (XP11)"

Just Flight, in partnership with Thranda Design, are proud to present the Avro Vulcan B Mk2, K.2 and MRR for X-Plane 11.

The Vulcan B Mk2 is an iconic, four-engine, delta-wing strategic bomber which saw service in the UK during the Cold War. XM655, on which this product is based, was the third-from-last Vulcan to be produced for the Royal Air Force. It was delivered in 1964 and saw service as part of the UK’s nuclear deterrent force throughout the 60s and 70s. It is now being preserved by a team of volunteers at Wellesbourne Airfield.

This product also includes the K.2 Air-to-Air Refueling and Maritime Radar Reconnaissance (MRR) variants that saw service with the Royal Air Force.

MODEL

  • Accurately modelled Avro Vulcan B Mk2, K.2 and MRR built using real-world aircraft plans and comprehensive photography of the real aircraft (XM655)
  • K.2 air-to-air refuelling variant with Hose Drum Unit (HDU) and animated hose
  • Maritime Radar Reconnaissance (MRR) variant with air sampling pods and nose blade aerials
  • Many detailed animations, including:
    • Crew door
    • Bomb bay doors (with realistic deployment speed)
    • Multi-position airbrakes (accurately linked to landing gear position)
    • Drogue and main brake-chutes
    • Deployable ram-air-turbine (RAT)
    • Variable-speed wipers
    • Tilting main landing gear
    • Flying controls (including elevons)
    • Animated pilots
    • Retractable taxi/landing lights (with realistic ‘blowback’ above 180 knots)
  • A range of payload options, selectable via a custom 2D panel:
    • Blue Steel nuclear stand-off missile
    • 1,000lb bombs
    • WE.177 nuclear bomb
    • Saddle bomb bay tanks
    • Cylindrical bomb bay tanks
  • Ability to configure external model options for each livery – refuelling probe, 201/301 engines, TFR dome, modern aerials and tail fin ECM, HDU, air sampling pods and aerials
  • Olympus 201 and 301 engine nozzle types
  • Ground equipment, including Houchin GPU and Palouste compressor for engine start, and engine covers and chocks
  • 4096x4096 textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity
  • PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials with real-time environment reflections for superb quality and realism
  • Detailed normal mapping for down-to-the-rivet precision of aircraft features

COCKPIT

  • A truly 3D virtual cockpit right down to accurately modelled ejection seats and screw heads - every instrument is constructed fully in high polygon 3D with smooth animations
  • Cockpit textures feature wear and tear, with PBR effects, based on reference photos taken in the real aircraft to produce an authentic environment
  • Interactive engine start checklist
  • Checklists for every stage of flight
  • Panel state system which will automatically save the panel state whenever a flight is saved and reload the panel state whenever that flight is loaded
  • Aircraft configuration system that will allow you to choose between 'cold & dark' or 'ready for take-off'
  • Realistic V/UHF radio unit – save and recall commonly used frequencies
  • Fully functioning magnetic indicators, warning lights and push-to-test buttons
  • Numerous interactive animated blinds and visors
  • Realistic flight instruments, including direction horizon, beam compass, control surface and CG indicators
  • Option to activate flashlight from within pop-up window, to aid in those pitch-black cold and dark starts at night
  • Option to remove window and instrument reflection effects
  • All knob, switch and button animations routed through plugin logic, for optimum movement fidelity and sound synchronisation
  • No detail is too small – even the option to switch between day and night modes on the landing gear indicator is included!

AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS

  • Airbrakes, bomb doors and brake-chute can be operated using standard control assignments for ease of use
  • Numerous custom-coded systems:
    • Fuel system – fuel tank groups, transfer and cross-feed
    • Electrical system – alternators, Airbourne Auxiliary Power Plant (AAPP), Ram Air Turbine (RAT), synchroniser busbar and 2D AEO panels for controlling the AAPP, RAT and secondary supplies
    • Flying controls system – Powered Flying Controls (PFCs), Mach trimmer and auto-stabilisers
    • Engine start system – Rapid or normal engine starting, cross-bleed and Palouste external air supplies
    • Hydraulic system, including the electrically-operated hydraulic power pack unit (EHPP)
    • Oxygen system, including oxygen regulator system with realistic consumption based on altitude – watch the oxygen quantity drop with usage
    • Air conditioning system – cabin pressurisation and air conditioning, emergency depressurisation controls
    • Thermal anti-icing system, including airframe and engine anti-icing
    • Autopilot, including pitch and bank hold
