Farmington, CT USA January 13th, 2006 – Shockwave Productions has released the latest Wings of Power aircraft, the Wings of Power Focke Wulf "Long Nose" for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004®.

The late model Focke Wulf “Long Nose” was the nemesis of the USAAF P-51D Mustang in the skies over Europe during World War II. This latest Wings of Power offering from Shockwave includes five different models from this ultra high-performance fighter.

The crowning achievement in this series is the Ta152H high altitude interceptor, which is the most advanced prop-driven fighter developed during World War II. It was fast, maneuverable, powerful, and had the ability to reach altitude of over 48,000 feet. The Ta152H had a pressurized canopy and had a to speed of 467mph TAS@41,000 feet MSL.

The synergy between Shockwave’s fluid flight dynamics, 3D cockpit environments, and sound technology represent the heart of Shockwave’s relentless pursuit of “Absolute Realism.”

"With this latest Wings of Power release, we are pushing the limits of Flight Simulator 2004 further than ever to recreate the power characteristics of the supercharged piston engine. We worked directly from authentic power charts for these aircraft to reproduce, as closely as possible, the way these engines behave at various altitudes, throttle positions, RPM, and when emergency power is engaged.

The distinctly different manner in which the GM-1 nitrous oxide injection functions as contrasted with the water-methanol injection is clearly explained in our documentation and closely duplicated. Details were carefully researched and authentically captured (even to the point of converting Pfederstarke (PS) to horsepower from these authentic charts to ensure the closest fidelity possible). As always, rates of climb, cruising performance, range, speeds, and even combat and service ceilings have been certified accurate using original research sources. Flight characteristics even reflect the added weight and length of the “long-nose” as compared to the original Fw190.

For those who appreciate the accuracy and attention to detail of the Wings of Power aircraft, this is yet another step forward for Absolute Realism,” said Scott Gentile of Shockwave Productions Inc.

Wonderful plane! Thank you very much... hoping for a 109 in the same quality...

One of the best Add-ons for FS2004.

One question: is it possible to get the background graphics for the electrical and other panels in original german version (as with wings of power) without the english markings?
