Product Description

Built only for FSX SP2 and Acceleration (no planned version for FS9), the P36 Hawk has a highly detailed virtual cockpit complete with 3d gauges and authentic textures.

With animations present and correct, including custom sound recordings also adds to the immersion as you open up the throttle and watch how the self shadowing, bump mapping and spectacular highlights bring any of the 8 carefully selected paint schemes to life.


The Curtiss P-36 Hawk, also known as the Curtiss Hawk Model 75, was a U.S.-built fighter aircraft of the 1930s. A contemporary of the Hawker Hurricane and Messerschmitt Bf 109, it was one of the first of a new generation of combat aircraft—a sleek monoplane design making extensive use of metal in its construction and powered by a powerful piston engine.

The P-36 saw only limited combat with the United States Army Air Forces but was extensively used by the French Air Force and also by British Commonwealth and Chinese air units.

The P-36 has been designed to take advantage of all the graphical features FSX has to offer, including fully-custom specular shine textures, high resolution bump mapping, self-shading and 3D sound cones.
