As promised, FlyingIron Simulations has released today its latest masterpiece, the BF 109G-6, for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The BF 109G-6 is a true master of the skies, feared by its opponents and respected by all. This aircraft represents the pinnacle of German aviation and holds its place in history as one of the deadliest and most fearsome fighters ever made.
The BF 109G-6 comes with a host of impressive features, including detailed 3D artwork, immersive Wwise Soundscape, authentic flight modeling, extensive system recreation, detailed modeling of the DB 605A-1 V-12 engine, all-new electrical modeling, custom ground handling physics, beautiful UV cockpit lighting, dynamic cockpit vibrations, animated fuel line bubbles, a functional gunsight, and full integration of the FlyingIron Pilot’s Tablet.
The BF 109G-6 holds the record for the most produced fighter aircraft of all time, making up 47% of German aircraft production during WWII and scoring more aerial victories than any other aircraft of the war. This historical masterpiece has now been recreated with the most detailed and authentic simulation effort yet by FlyingIron Simulations. Thousands of man-hours have been poured into the project by the team, with new simulation techniques developed in-house to truly capture the unique characteristics of this beautiful aircraft.
The BF 109G-6, nicknamed “Gustav,” was among the best of the numerous models developed during the war. Introduced in the summer or fall of 1943, the G-6 was a single-engine, single-seat, low-wing fighter aircraft. With a wingspan of 9.92 m (32 ft 6 1/2 in), a length of 9.02 m (29 ft. 7 in), and a height of 3.4 m (11 ft. 2 in), the BF 109 G-6 was a force to be reckoned with.
The team at FlyingIron Simulations counted on the invaluable insights of Walter Eichhorn, a former Bf 109 pilot and a true aviation legend. With over 300 hours flying the BF 109, Eichhorn is the most experienced pilot of this aircraft since the end of World War II. His extensive flying career spans a range of aircraft, including the Convair 340, Boeing 727, 737, 747, DC-10, Ju-52, AT-6, and many others. Notably, Eichhorn continues to fly daily with his Extra 350 at the age of 86. FlyingIron has stated that Eichhorn’s knowledge and experience have been invaluable in ensuring the authenticity of the BF 109 G-6 simulation for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
The BF 109G-6 is the latest addition to FlyingIron Simulations’ distinguished lineup of accurately modeled aircraft, following their impressive Spitfire IX, P-38L, and F6F Hellcat. With the BF 109 G-6, simmers can expect the same level of detail and immersion that FlyingIron Simulations is known for.
The BF 109G-6 is now available for download on the FlyingIron Simulations website, with a Marketplace debut expected in the following weeks. It’s priced at $45.00 AUD (around $30 USD)
