VL Myrsky II 'Storm' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
The VL Myrsky II ('Storm') was a Finnish World War II fighter designed by the State Aircraft Factory (Valtion Lentokonetehdas) for the Finnish Air Force. Entering service during August 1944 the Myrsky was reasonably fast and manoeuvrable enough to dogfight contemporary Soviet aircraftand and it's wide undercarriage gave it decent ground-handling properties. Myrsky usage ended in May 1947 and the last Myrsky flight was made in February 1948.
Veltro2K very kindly made this (following a request from me) and it's another one of the lesser known aircraft that Ed has brought to Strike Fighters. The FM isn't perfect but it's manageable if you fly it smoothly and avoid ham-fisted manoeuvres close to the ground. A simple skin with authentic serial numbers are included and I've just taken a bit of artistic licence with the contemporary fin marking (easily removed).

Thanks to Veltro2K for making the 3D model and allowing me to skin it.
Thanks also to Charles for some valuable tips now incorporated on Version 2.
And, finally, thanks to everyone in the wider Third Wire community.
