MAAM-SIM North American B-25 Mitchell 'Briefing Time' for FS2002 & FS2004 CD-ROM. Add-on aircraft package for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 and 2004-Century of Flight.
NOTE: A free FSX Basic Compatibility Upgrade for this aircraft, and many other free enhancments, are available on the MAAM-SIM Free Stuff Page.
The award winning MAAM B-25J Mitchell, 'Briefing Time', add-on aircraft for Microsoft FS2002 and Flight Simulator 2004 "A Century of Flight" and upgraded with some great new features.
In addition to the museum's current olive drab and gray livery, the CD also contains the bare-metal version of 'Briefing Time' as she looked soon after delivery to the 489th Bombardment Squadron, 340th Bombardment Group in Corsica, before she got her coat of olive and gray paint.
The third model included is the solid-nose, "strafer" version of the J-model. It was widely used in the Pacific theater where it's 14 forward-firing .50 caliber machine guns proved devastating to Japanese shipping and ground targets. This ship flew with the 489th Bombardment Squadron "Falcons", 345th Bombardment Group "Air Apaches".
An extensively illustrated User's Manual will guide you through every panel, pop-up, and phase of flight operations.
Supplementing the manual are 11 instructional, digital videos filmed on board 'BT' and at air shows around the region covering all phases of flight. Several of these feature instructions by MAAM President Russ Strine, demonstrating engine-starting, engine shut-down, takeoff, and more.
If you prefer your reference materials to be vintage, you won't be disappointed. A twenty-minute WW-II B-25 Training Film will take you through a complete short-course on flying the Mitchell.
A complete, 170-page, Pilot Training Manual for the B-25, clearly scanned in high resolution jpegs will go into even more detail.
The aircraft's exterior and interior feature "extreme photo-realistic textures derived from thousands of digital photographs. The sounds of the mighty Wright Double-Cyclones were recorded in the real plane, of course. 'BT's flight performance has been painstakingly reproduced in the simulation's flight model.
There are an even dozen 2D panels and pop-ups, including both the pilot's and copilot's perspectives, with enlarged, IFR panels for both. All of the gauges and controls on the real aircraft have been duplicated exactly and programmed to operate like their real-world counterparts.
'Briefing Time' features a 3-D "Virtual Cockpit" of exceptional clarity and detail with numerous animated controls and features.
But it does not stop there. You can move into the Upper Turret Compartment, to the rear of the cockpit, then "slide" through the tunnel beneath the flight deck.
Seven photo-real views allow you to take up other crew positions, such as the waist gunner's, and the top turret gunner's.
Both self-installing aircraft packages (FS2002 & FS2004) include three different complexity levels of virtual cockpit and cabin to accommodate slower systems, or just boost your frame rate when you want top performance. Easy menu selections allow you to fly the complete aircraft, or to opt for the Medium version which has the virtual cockpit, but not the other compartments; or the Light which dispenses with the 3D virtual cockpit altogether. Switching between versions can be done at any time by accessing the aircraft menu and, because the three versions are identical in every other way, you won't even disturb your flight path.
Dozens of Free "skins" and other enhancements and upgrades are available on the MAAM-SIM Free Stuff Page.
