Fine Stratos  here they are:

This is an unashamed promotion of the possibilities available from the current 160Special installation with different theatres, starting with some screenies from Carrier Air War.
This was an allied intercept mission:

A test drop in safe waters, just for the screenie. You can see the bomb and the bounce splashes:

Just the ETO default, but don't you love that gun convergence that goes back to the original 1.28 release ?

Looking at the screenshot of the MB-3 it reminds me, I'm upgrading pretty much all the cockpits in the inventory with modified instrument panels to make them more readable.

Another SimHQ member, Ribob suggested it a while back and I think it makes sense.

It's taking a while to do them all but I hope to be finished in a month or so.

For instance, from this:

To this:

I'm also adding animated landing gear and flap actuator switches or lights. Notice in shot #2 the set of four vertical red lights next to the flap warning plaque. The lights change depending on the flap position, from full up to full down. Other cockpits have a rotating handle for the flaps rather than the lights.

The big silver switch to the right of the fuel gauges goes up and down for the landing gear activation.

Adding these animations is a challenge to say the least but they do add a nice touch to our otherwise static cockpits.

True there are some cockpits with engine on/off levers and some with gear / flap indicators but not that many. When I'm done pretty much all the cockpits will have these functions.

In addition, many of the single seaters will have opening and closing hatches. That is not my invention but I've vastly increased the number that have them.
