The T-28 was initially created as a two seat trainer for the US Air Force with the first aircraft flying in 1949. The aircraft had a short production run with the last new T-28 delivered in 1958. The original A model had a miserly 800 horsepower, 7 cylinder radial engine and a two bladed prop. The Navy became interested in the aircraft and ordered 491 B models which had the considerably more powerful 1425 horsepower Wright Cyclone R-1820-86 9 cylinder engine. The C model followed a few years later and this was modified with a tail hook for carrier operation. A shorter prop was installed on the C to prevent prop strike. Some of the original A models were modified with a larger engine and became the D model. These D models saw combat in various regions around the world.

This aircraft is based upon the T-28D 'Huff ‘n’ Puff' from Warbird Aviation at Archerfield. The aircraft has a 1,425 horsepower 9 cylinder Wright Cyclone radial engine with typical cruise speeds from 180 to 200 kts. Climb rates can approach 4000 fpm.

Also available as a separate package is the T-28B/C as flown by the US Navy.

Version 3 update adds the following:
