now it's official. Just Flight has a new Avro Vulcan B Mk. 2, K.2 and MRR for X-Plane 11 in development. More screenshots and details can be found on the product page.

This X-Plane 11 Vulcan package includes the B Mk2 model as well as the K.2 air-to-air refuelling variant with hose drum unit and animated hose and the Maritime Radar Reconnaissance (MRR) variant. A total of 17 paint schemes are included.

Features include PBR materials, ground equipment, a range of realistic payload options, detailed animations including a multi-stage brake parachute, realistic flight instruments and V/UHF radio unit, fully functioning magnetic indicators, warning lights and push-to-test buttons, checklists for every stage of flight and numerous custom-coded systems and avionics.

Just Flight, in partnership with Thranda Design, are proud to present the Avro Vulcan B Mk2, K.2 and MRR for X-Plane 11.

Following on from their award-winning PA-28 series, Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer and C152, this highly detailed simulation of the Avro Vulcan B Mk2, K.2 and MRR is being developed by Just Flight's in-house team and Thranda Design following comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-life Vulcan B Mk2, XM655, based at Wellesbourne Airfield.

The Vulcan B Mk2 is an iconic, four-engine, delta-wing strategic bomber which saw service in the UK during the Cold War. XM655, on which this product is based, was the third-from-last Vulcan to be produced for the Royal Air Force. It was delivered in 1964 and saw service as part of the UK’s nuclear deterrent force throughout the 60s and 70s. It is now being preserved by a team of volunteers at Wellesbourne Airfield.

This product also includes the K.2 Air-to-Air Refueling and Maritime Radar Reconnaissance (MRR) variants that saw service with the Royal Air Force.

Following the Falklands War, six Avro Vulcan B Mk2s were converted for air-to-air refuelling as an interim solution prior to the delivery of VC10 and Tristar tanker aircraft that were due to replace the aging Victor tankers. This conversion consisted of the addition of a Hose Drum Unit (HDU) mounted in the tail cone, and three bomb-bay drum tanks. The K.2 variants served with 50 Squadron (RAF Waddington) from 1982 to 1984.

In 1973 nine Avro Vulcan B Mk2s were converted for Maritime Radar Reconnaissance (MRR). The MRR variants flew patrols around the coast of the UK, primarily operating at high level and using the radar to monitor shipping but also flying at low level for visual identification and inspection. They had a secondary role carrying out air sampling, flying through airbourne contamination following nuclear tests and using air sampling pods mounted under each wing to collect samples for analysis. The MRR variants served with 27 Squadron (RAF Scampton) from 1973 to 1982, at which point the Nimrod took over these duties.

The aircraft has been modelled to an exceptional level of detail and features a variety of 4096x4096 paint schemes with PBR materials and real-time environment reflections covering its time in RAF service, realistic payloads (including Blue Steel, 1000lb bombs and bomb bay tanks) and ground equipment. The aircraft features a fully 3D virtual cockpit with smoothly animated 3D instruments and fully functioning custom-coded systems and avionics.
