Six infamous wartime bomber planes come head to head in the WWII Collection.
Hawker Heroes offers you the chance to fly four of the most iconic aircraft ever to take to the skies. Dating back to 1931 when the Hawker Fury set the template for all fighter aircraft that would follow.
The Hurricane was the hero of the Battle of Britain and changed the course of WWII achieving more enemy kills than any other aircraft.
Even whilst the Hurricane was still rolling of the production line, the Hawker Company were already planning the replacement aircraft, the Hawker Typhoon. Pressed into service on D-Day to turn back the tide of armour on the Normandy beaches the Typhoon was instrumental in the liberation of Europe.
The Hawker Tempest entered service shortly before the end of the war in 1944 with outstanding acceleration with excellent climb and dive performance, its introduction was fortuitous being one of the few aircraft able to intercept and shoot down the V1 flying bomb.
Each aircraft has been painstakingly recreated to offer the ultimate in simulation. Accompanied by adrenalin charged missions for Flight Simulator X, would-be fighter aces can relive the Hawker experience where the best pilots truly became heroes!
Stuka vs. Hurricane
Operating in almost every campaign of World War 2, the Junkers Ju87 Stuka was the pride of the Luftwaffe. With its trademark siren - "the Horn of Jericho", daring Stuka pilots would put their aircraft into a vertical dive as they attacked their targets!
Push your flying skills to the edge and beyond in a test of nerve as you dive towards the ground at 300MPH and see how low you can go.
The meticulously detailed Stuka has been carefully crafted by a team of experts to recreate an authentic flying experience with a stunning 3D recreation of the aircraft featuring accurate period liveries. Strap yourself in and fly in a cockpit so realistic you will grip your seat as you hurtle towards the ground, siren wailing!
The allies too had their own ground attack bomber in the guise of the Hurricane. The MK IIC Hurricane, dubbed the "Hurribomber" was the allied alter ego of the Stuka, performing attack missions on behalf of the Royal Air Force, often on dangerous night intruder missions.
Accompanied by detailed histories of each aircraft, a Stuka dive tutorial, panel guides and missions (Flight Simulator X only) Stuka vs. Hurricane pitches two iconic aircraft head to head in the ultimate battle for aerial supremacy.
