    de Havilland Vampire DH-100 by SwissMilSim

    Was wondering if anyone has this and what you think of it.

    Available at SimMarket

    Looks impressive, but costly.

    Ooohhh... nice pics.

    Yes, I'm a fan of the Vampire as well. Any issues encountered with the product or install?

    It has great flying characteristics things get a bit dicey when you load bombs or wing tanks increasing the weight

    you have to fly at the right power settings other wise you will blow the motor very realistic

    a very nice cockpit all gauges are in Swiss but I believe they are going to bring out a international model which will be great

    A great machine

    It comes made for FSX FSX-Steam and p3DV4.5

    Hello,

    The idea of this development was to reproduce as accurately as possible the aircraft, its flight and mission behaviour and the way it was flown. To do this, we have added not only TacPack support, but also missions (scenarios) that allow you to better discover your environment at the time.

    Two former pilots of this real aircraft participated in the design and conducted multiple tests. In addition, most of the systems have been modeled and are functional, such as the NAFU and GCA navigation system, which makes it a unique extension to my knowledge.

    Another unique feature: the extension is available in 3 languages: French, German and English, for missions, checklists, but also for the manual which is over 100 pages long (downloadable from our website)!

    All this is the result of more than 2 years of work and I would like to thank in advance those who will support us by purchasing this extension.

    Now, I understand that this price can discourage some of them, it's not an extension that you buy on a whim, but rather after reflection.

    We are a small team of 4 people who do this as amateurs and who have spent thousands of cumulative hours on the project. The income is therefore only a meagre compensation.

    In addition, we believe that the quality of our extension is similar to an A2A extension, for example in terms of realism, and therefore the price is also similar and therefore corresponds to the market price.

    Jérôme from SwissMilSim Team

    Thanks for the background, Jerome.

    Can you share more information on the "international model" mentioned by musterpilot?

    Sorry, but I have nothing more...
    The only thing that I can say is that we planned to do an international version, with international textures, because this one is with a swiss cockpit.
    We are going to discuss this soon with the team, but no details at all for the moment.

    Hi Jérôme,

    Another question: can this model be simply started up by ctrl+e or does it require a startup procedure.

    When I have time, startup procedures are no problem, but sometimes (after work or after helping my boy with his studies), I just like to get up into the air fast and enjoy some time flying.

    Cheers,

    Priller

    Hi Priller,

    Yes, it is possible to startup using CTRL+E as a simpler startup procedure too.

    Best regards,
    Jérôme

    Jerome,

    Seems I've encountered a problem with my FSXA install.

    I have sent an e-mail to the SMS Support, but have not received a response. Thanks.

    Of course.

    The installation went fine. The installer found the FSXA install.

    All is fine except that the Tacpack weapons are not loading for the short nose model. Fuel tanks and empty pylons are showing. There are no display problems with the long nose model.

    After my report to SMS, I did a full uninstall - downloaded a fresh installer - and reinstalled the aircraft, and the issue persists. My guess is that there is something quirky with the short nose model for the FSX install.

    SMS is looking into the problem.

    Not yet, but we're working on it.

    BTW - which version of the sim did you take those screenshots from? Seems you were able to get the weapons to display.

    We probably found the problem and it happens only on FSX/FSX:SE and for the short nose model. We just need a couple of days to test and create a patch.

    I just bought it, and love it. REALLY want the international model (with the more common external fuel tanks). Really like how it flies!
