About This Content
This Dunkirk Spitfire add-on for FSX:SE provides models of the very early Mk1 with the two-bladed propeller, Mk1 version at the time of Dunkirk in 1940 and the Mk1A in the Battle of Britain era. The add-on is extremely high on detail, the models feature unique animations, goggles and oxygen mask appearing automatically on the pilot at a set altitude, TR9 radio and 'hidden' NAV/COM radios, airframe shake and gauge needle tremble during engine start and idle, authentic start-up and accurately simulated hand-pumped or hydraulic landing gear operation.
In this add-on you will also find examples of Mk1As which fought in the Battle of Britain and were piloted by some of that battle's Aces.
