For any aviation enthusiasts, the Bronco is one of the most loveable aircrafts of its 1960s heyday. As a major part of the military expansion that took place in the 60s, aircraft became faster, stronger and more reliable. However, while the size and power of the aircraft were apparent, many of these models were unable to make the same impact in jungle terrains and harsh environmental conditioning.
Enter the OV-10 Bronco. This aircraft hit the market and very quickly became a majorly popular aircraft for dealing with these terrain conditions. Capable of landing on carriers as well as grass with ease, it soon become a staple in military environments.
This edition, created by Aerosoft, helps to bring that versatility to life in the most wonderful fashion possible. The new Bronco X release, built using the help of those who still fly them today, ensures that this leaves you with a very close take on the real thing. This results in a very fun and charismatic aviation experience, making sure you can enjoy an aircraft that is flexible and comes with controls you can easily master. Highly authentic, you’ll need to get to grips with new features like electrical fuel systems. Taking the time to truly understand this wildly different aircraft, though, will be a reward well worth your time.
Those who invest in this take on the OV-10 Bronco will come away with 8 very impressive model. Each model covers major organizations like USAF, US Marines, and even NASA, ensuring it feels authentic and fun to fly. Also, no model edition comes without an impressive level of attention to detail; by using the latest insights into modeling, this takes the model as far as FSX can manage.
Visually, too, you will see other major changes. From the needles skyrocketing on the gauges to lighting being entirely new, visual appeal here is massive. The development team has really gone the extra mile to include new animations, from smoke generation to oil cooler doors opening and closing. The aircraft feels alive, with everything moving as it should and creating a much more immersive and enjoyable cockpit experience.
The engines, a Honeywell TPE331, is included in the aircraft totally made from scratch. This allows for a very impressive feel to the aircraft, which ensures the visuals aren’t the only impressive part. The authentic use of wear and tear on the engine as you use it, too, alongside the chance for start-up sequence alterations and even in-air restarts, this adds a whole new dynamic to your flying.
Also, the engine can work authentically due to the fact it delivers realistic engine failures due to overheating or excessive torque. Add in the engine flame-outs due to icing, too, and you can see a really challenging yet rewarding aviation experience unfold in front of you. With fully operational TACAN radios and COM2 adios alongside a Becker BXP-6401 transponder, this makes a massive difference to the immersion and authenticity of the aircraft itself.
