P-38L with TacPack for FSX/P3D

One of the greatest fighters of World War II, the legacy of the P-38 is unmatched. At the time of it's introduction in 1940, the P-38 was capable of climbing 3,300 fpm and could attain a top speed that was 100 mph faster than any other fighter in the world. A range of 1,150 miles, a payload capacity nearing the B-17, a potent mix of four .50 calibre machine guns and a 20-mm cannon combined to deliver a versatile and legendary aircraft.

A total of more than 10,000 P-38's (including 18 distinct models) were manufactured during the war, flying more than 130,000 missions in theaters around the world. P-38 pilots shot down more than Japanese aircraft than any other fighter and, in a reconnaissance role, obtained 90 percent of the aerial film captured over Europe.

As a testement to the effectiveness of the P-38 Lightning, as well as it's fearsome might in skilled hands, the two highest scoring aces in American history, Maj. Richard I. Bong and Maj. Thomas B. McGuire Jr, both flew the P-38 in the Pacific Theater of Operations. Each man received the Medal of Honor in recognition of his courage and accomplishments.

Introducing the Milviz P-38L!

We are very excited to present to you our latest aircraft: the sleek yet powerful P-38 Lightning. We've modelled to ultimate perfection the 'L' model, faithfully simulating every last detail; from the suggestive rumble of it's twin 1,475 hp engines, to it's deadly "Christmas tree" launch racks on each wing, each laden with five high velocity rockets. An extremely accurate virtual cockpit rounds out the package, with highly detailed textures throughout and richly featured functionality.

Precision Flight Dynamics

Our goal with all of our releases is always to make the aircraft as realistic as possible. As important as it is to make an virtual cockpit or external model look great, replicating how an aircraft actually handles is absolutely essential. The characteristics of an aircraft in flight, being able to recognize the natural limits placed on an airframe by it's design, the effort required to master and safely handle a powerful machine, these are traits where we aim to transform your simulator into a place where you can immersive yourself in the beauty of flight.

The P-38, as with many warbirds, was a very powerful machine. It's impressive rate of climb and very fast top speed were the result of giving the aircraft enough power to haul an extensive weapon load, and giving it the endurance to travel long distances. With that vast amount of horsepower however, limits to the design were soon realized. One of the most serious problems that plagued the P-38 was that of aerodynamic compressibility. Essentially, during very high-speed flight and especially during dives, the aircraft's tail would begin to shake violently and the nose would tuck under, steepening the dive. Once caught in this dive, the fighter would enter a high-speed compressibility stall and the controls would lock up, leaving the pilot no option but to bail out (if possible) or remain with the aircraft until it got down to denser air, where he might have a chance to pull out. It was finally determined, after much trial and error, that installing dive flaps on the P-38 was the ultimate solution.

In our P-38L, we've tasked Bernt Stolle with creating the expertly refined flight model. Not only will you be able to fly it 'by the book', you'll be able to recreate many of the same issues that real P-38 pilots faced, including that of high-speed compressibility. Our model displays behaviour consistent with the actual aircraft; you'll need dive flaps when entering a dive, or you'll need to employ the same techniques as recommended when in a compressibility stall. Indeed, you'll have to be very mindful when flying the P-38 at it's upper limits!

Authentic Liveries

Included in the package are 21 high resolution liveries, created with extreme attention to both detail and quality. Many of the included liveries are representations of P-38's that have seen service, and where available we've included the pilot and deployment notes. After all, the P-38 is not only a significant part of aviation past, but also plays a very important part in the history of WWII as well.

TacPack Edition Available



For the first time, we are very excited to offer versions of the P-38L that includes TacPack integration for both FSX Acceleration and Prepar3D 2.5.

With these versions, as well as a copy of the TacPack software from Vertical Reality Simulations, full functionality is provided for the P-38's gunsight, the .50 calibre machine guns, the 20mm autocannon, the 10 high velocity aircraft rockets (HVARs), as well the ability to drop 500lb bombs.

Vertical Reality Simulations' TacPack software is a stand-alone weapons and warfare platform for Flight Simulator X and Prepar3d. It is a payware product, and is not included with your purchase from Milviz. It is required for the above functionality and integration.
