Created exclusively for Prepar3D (versions 2, 3 and 4), the Milviz Corsair features an intricate flight model, in-depth system simulation, high definition textures and a highly detailed 3D model.
Based on a FG-1D that was produced too late for active service in World War Two; c/n 92132 spent its naval career in the reserves before it was retired in 1957. It returned to the skies in the 1970’s for a brief stint in the television show Black Sheep Squadron before being acquired by the Tri-State Warbird Museum in Batavia, Ohio, where it is now being restored.
The Milviz package comes with six HD liveries, detailed textures and precise 3D modelling both inside and out, while the cockpit features custom 3D gauges.
In addition, the powerplant is modelled in detail including the water injection and manually operated two stage supercharger; as well as the fuel system, electrics pilot oxygen, undercarriage dive braking using the main wheels in a trailing position. Additional systems include comprehensive avionics, gun charging & armament (via TacPack). The FG-1D also is ready for carrier operations with folding wings and a working arrestor hook.
The flight dynamics have been modelled to closely perform like the real aircraft, so proper technique is required to recover from stalls, as well as for performing safe landings and take-offs.
MilViz Aircraft Management System (MVAMS) is included with this release, which allows for easy set-up of the aircraft, including configuring the default start-up state, radio frequencies, as well as enabling the setup of a joystick axis for the supercharger.
The package is TacPack compatible, enabling you to operate the Mark 8 illuminated gunsight, fire guns, drop bombs, or launch rockets from your now-armed-to-the-teeth Corsair. Weapons are selected in-game via a loadout manager.
Vertical Reality Simulations’ TacPack software is not included with the product. It is a pre-requisite for using the weapons features of the MilViz Corsair, but is not required for the operation of any other portion of the aircraft. Please note: At the time of this release, the TacPack software has not been updated for use in Prepar3D version 4.
