G'day mate,

welcome here. How is your Lanc going?

No plans for a Lanc as far as I know and there are a fair few aircraft in line before more are added. Have a look at the October update if you haven't already,

regards

Darryl

No lancaster has been made by A2A, and no announcement has been made to create one. Currently, they are working on a Spitfire, P-51, F4 Phantom and the F-104 Starfighter, all accusimmed. Have a look at the october update as Kill allready stated, it's all in there. Make sure you have some kind of towel nearby :)

Oh and off course: Welcome to this community! Hope you enjoy the A2A products!!!!!!

Hold up fellas ... Back for FS9 in the bombers package, A2A (then Shockwave) did market a lanc.

They have one, its a matter of updating for FSX ..

True snuffy :)

But to be honest: I don't care about fs9 ;)
I doubt it's just a "matter of updating" though...

I would never suggest that A2A Simulations and Aeroplane Heaven are in the same league, but if you're looking for a Lancaster I saw just last night that the August/September issue of PC Pilot is offering AH's Lancaster as freeware on the cover CD. My local bookstore still has that issue and hasn't received the November/December issue yet so you might still be able to find the Aug/Sep issue as well if you act quickly.

And yes, before A2A Simulations changed its name from Shockwave Productions, it did release a pack of FS2004 bombers that included two B-17 variants, a B-24, a B-29 and a Lancaster. This product was basically reissued in the early days of FSX as "FSX compatible" models as part of the Aircraft Power Pack; however, subsequent FSX service packs have interfered with the compatibility of these port-overs.

Aircraft Power Pack 2 was the reissue of "WWII Fighters Special Edition" (ie, the Wings of Power II Spitfire, Bf109E, P-47D, and P-51D...not sure if the A6M was included though) and single variant of the P-40. It also had the Sky Defender game included.

Hey what if A2ASimulations came out with a Aircraft Factory Lancaster III or a WOP II Lanc?
Any interest in that you guys?
Sure it would be better to have an accu-sim one (perhaps later on) but it would be a nice start.

Maybe after the Spitfire? They will have the Merlin sorted out - just the airframe to do! 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

Good point Robin the Merlin engine is already there.It would make that part easier.

Maybe now that they've got Accu-Sim modularized, future aircraft can be developed faster. It'd be cool if they could use the Spitfire/Mustang Merlin and drop it into a Lancaster like Robin suggested.
