    Would anyone happen to have any recent news about BlackBird's Skyraider for MSFS? That is one I've been really looking forward to (having a family connection to original Skyraider production).

    This was the most recent information I could find

    Milviz has a bunch of products being worked on at a given time, which sometimes makes it hard to track them all down. Remember the A-1H Skyraider? Earlier his year it was estimated to be out around March clearly, that hasnt happened, and we stopped hearing news about that aircraft until now. Milviz revealed that the Skyraider has been sold to another company! We dont know who, but its now up to them to release the Skyraider for MSFS. Well stay on the lookout!

    This is why I never get excited about a MilViz release until it's downloaded to my drive. They announce a ton of products, but who knows if or when they will ever see the light of day.

    Coincidentally, a month later, a Skyraider was announced for DCS World. No idea if they two are actually connected at all, though.

    Thank you, AK, I had not seen that information. Yeah, I remember when MSFS was first released, Milviz showed their Cessna Bobcat being one of the first brought over to the new sim, yet the news on that one seems to have gone quiet.

    I would still like to see an update for their Corsair - even if only to at least correct the left wing tip light lens, which has no texture/solid black.

    You can watch the full video of the streaming here:



    D'Andre is showing off all models in my WIP KBAB so you can get a nice preview of that too, will be in beta very soon.

    The civilian C-130 - presumably the LM100J - will be very welcome.

    Good to see the F-86 is on the list.

    Excellent news! I've been hankering for a PROPER C130 in my hanger!

    Also I definitely wouldn't say no to the Skyraider, either!

    I think I'm most excited for the F-4S. But they're going to put out a lot of excellent releases. I was also wondering if their F-86 was migrating to this platform, good to see it's OTW. I wouldn't mind a Shrike Level F-86H and/or F3J as well.

    Milviz/Blackbird/

    Since way back when Colin, for all his 'whacky' showmanship, has always been very committed to quality at MILVIZ. I do trust his judgement - their T-38's and the F-86 were superb in P3D.

    However, the arrival of MSFS has understandingly sent shockwaves through the all these Dev teams - they know that MSFS has changed the flight-sim landscape forever and most pertinently has changed the earnings potential for Devs massively.

    I assume that their Commercial work for the likes of LM is very remunerative but one would have thought that the commercial reality of MSFS and the Marketplace has narrowed the gap. Hence the introduction of the Blackbird and now the Shrike sub-brands.

    This reflects a very sensible approach whereby they can now address 3 separate markets simultaneously and many products become fungible certainly between Blackbird and Shrike and as per the C-130 between Commercial and Blackbird.

    The Shrike brand will not be study level, will have no manuals and no in depth systems modelling. However, they will work on Xbox, they will look great and fly realistically and will be priced at $20 or lower. In their words unashamedly "toys".

    I'm guessing with the annoucment of all these products Milviz is simply saying, "We are still relavant" in the world of flight simulation. Their F86 and F100 models in FSX were stunning.
    Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.

    Cool! C-130 and the PA-30! Sign me up! Thanks, Blackbird!

    Loved their stuff in the FSX/P3D days. Their quality was high, but they do come through slowly (understandably) so I'll believe them when I see them. Fingers crossed!

    Not familiar with their Islander (guess its no longer for sale?) but the Porter is great, as is the Corsair!

    The Islander is Blackbox Simulations. That's what I get for skimming through my list of planes!
