Following on from their award-winning Canberra PR9, Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer and Tornado GR1, this highly detailed simulation of the Avro Vulcan B Mk. 2 has been developed by Just Flight's in-house team after comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-life Vulcan B Mk. 2, XM655, based at Wellesbourne Airfield.

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.

The aircraft has been modelled to an exceptional level of detail and features a variety of 4096x4096 paint schemes covering its time in RAF service, realistic payloads (including Blue Steel, 1000lb bombs and bomb bay tanks) and ground equipment. The aircraft features a fully 3D virtual cockpit with smoothly animated 3D instruments and fully functioning custom-coded systems and avionics.

See the Detailed Description below for all the aircraft features!


MODEL

  • Accurately modelled Avro Vulcan B Mk. 2, built using real-world aircraft plans and comprehensive photography of the real aircraft (XM655)
  • Many detailed animations, including:
     - Crew door
     - Bomb bay doors
     - Multi-position airbrakes
     - Multi-stage brake parachute
     - Deployable ram air turbine (RAT)
     - Variable-speed wipers
     - Tilting main landing gear
     - Flying controls (including elevons)
     - Animated pilots
     - Retractable taxi/landing lights
  • A range of payload options:
     - Blue Steel nuclear stand-off missile
     - 1000lb bombs
     - WE.177 nuclear bomb
     - Saddle bomb bay tanks
     - Cylindrical bomb bay tanks
  • Different aerial, refuelling probe and other external parts providing several configurations
  • Olympus 201 and 301 engine nozzle types
  • Ground equipment, including Houchin GPU and Palouste compressor for engine start
  • 4096x4096 textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity
  • Bump and specular mapping used throughout the aircraft to produce a truly 3D feel

COCKPIT

  • A truly 3D virtual cockpit right down to accurately modelled ejection seats and screw heads - every instrument is constructed fully in 3D with smooth animations
  • Cockpit textures feature wear and tear 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'
  • Functioning oxygen regulator system with realistic consumption based on altitude – watch the oxygen quantity drop with usage
  • Realistic V/UHF radio unit – save and recall commonly used frequencies
  • Fully functioning magnetic indicators, warning lights and push-to-test buttons
  • No detail is too small – even the option to switch between day and night modes on the landing gear indicator is included!

AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS

  • Custom-coded fuel system – fuel tank groups, transfer and crossfeed
  • Custom-coded electrical system
