A timeless legend, an icon, a hero and arguably one of the most beautiful aircraft to have ever existed.
Designed by Supermarine to be a short-range, high-performance interceptor, the Spitfire is most famous for it's pivotal role in World War II & The Battle of Britain where it was a key weapon against Axis forces. Instantly recognizable by it's iconic elliptical wing, the Spitfire needs little introduction from us.
3D Cockpit Model built from Heritage Flight Simulations incredibly detailed CAD Model
The model is a perfect replica of the Spitfire Mk IX cockpit, down to the smallest detail, and is used for the production of HFS's amazing cockpit replica.
This is of course backed up by our usual ultra-high Artwork standards across the entire aircraft - the in-game screenshots say more here than we ever could! Combined with the gorgeous scenery of MSFS, prepare to be blown away by just how good an old legend can look inside a modern simulator.
Professional Wwise Sound Design by an experienced Sound Engineer
This release marks our greatest achievement in sound design so far, by a long mile, thanks to the power of Wwise (the industry leader in game audio-engineering). All sounds have been professionally recorded from a real Spitfire Mk IX. We have splashed out here to obtain an exhaustive Spitfire sound pack, professionally recorded by an Audio studio for the purpose of simulation & game development. It has been worth it! The audio experience is incredibly immersive and enhances the experience significantly!
Extensively researched, detailed and realistic Flight Model
Asobo has developed an enormously complex, detailed and realistic set of Flight Modelling tools that we have fully implemented to build our Spitfire FM from the ground up. Our experience in developing our Spitfire Mk IX for X-plane 11, as well as our recent experience developing Flight Models inside 3 different simulation platforms, has allowed us to quickly build a highly accurate Flight Model that not only flies 'by the numbers', but just feels damn good.
Realistic Start-up Procedures, Failures and Flight Systems
Simulated to function as faithfully as possible to the real aircraft; you will need to start-up, operate and fly the aircraft just as a real Spitfire pilot would have all those years ago. Custom failures enforce this realism – exceeding operating limits or incorrectly operating the aircraft will result in appropriate failures.
Our Spitfire package includes both the Spitfire Mk IXc , as well as the unique clipped wing variant of the airframe, infamous for its unique look, significantly improved roll rate and slight speed increase.
