Pros: Great VCs Great Everything!
Cons: They could have included the P-51, though that is coming at later date

Everything Is great! The one drawback is that they should have included the P-51 Mustang, and the Me109 two of the best known fighters of WWII.
The Musatng did the escort, and the 109 did the attacking!

Pros: Excellent aircraft models
Cons: No interior detain from the exterior views, released too late

The VCs are just simply amazing! And the realism is amazing, aircrafts fly just as they would in real life! But they could've added some detail to the interior of the plane on the exterior model, kinda like what MAAM does. And they should've included the P-51 with this package, bump the price up by 20 bucks and I still would've gotten it.

Pros: engine sound, price, aircraft models
Cons: VC detail

It comes with many famous WWII allied bombers in the package. The exterior of aircraft models are all very nice and come with many famous WWII paint skins. The sound of the engines is incredible. The flight characteristic of each bomber has been carefully modeled and you can feel their difference by flying them. You can also belly land those big heavies in simulating the emergency landing. Lots efforts were put into the engine and throttle control. The C-1 auto pilot system of the B-24 is functioning and included.


Instrument panels themselves are very clear and authentic. The VC lacks some detail on the "decoration" part of the cockpit. I think the 3D cockpit is actually made by 3D model rather than the texture mapping. (I can see the actual polygons) It can't compete with the CaptainSim F-104 or DreamFleet A36 in VC detail, eyecandy wise.


You can't tour the terrets or any other part of bombers without an external program. However, for the price paid to own all the legendary WWII bombers it is a very nice package to have. give it an 9 for the amount of quality bombers you get from the package.
