P-51 Mustang Military Accu-Sim for FSX2 reviews
Military aviation has always been something of a strange thing to use in Microsoft Flight Simulator. Because at one stage there wasn’t a huge amount to shout about in terms of the chances for actually interacting with other aircraft, especially in combat, they could feel a little bit hollow. However, one of the strengths of this situation was that it made life incredibly easy for those who wanted to fly old-school aircraft that simply aren’t used anymore. This led to the creation of some of the most interesting aircraft out there; including the P-51. Read more...

The P-51 Military
This was one of the most powerful aircraft during the Second World War era, and served as a vital part of the British vanguard against the rampaging Axis military. Whilst the world wasn’t quite sure of what was to come following the beginning of the Second World War, it was well-known that the British had developed a formidable fighter in the form of the P-51. It’s versatility in the skies as well as reasonable armor and ability to take a considerable amount of hits meant that the P-51 was already one of the first volunteers to get on the front lines when hostilities commenced.
It was commissioned to the North American Aviation firm, and was created by “Dutch” Kindelberger, who was the President at the time. However, the original deal was to make a series of Curtiss P-40s instead; Kindelberger refused, and stated that he believed his team could create a stronger, more dynamic aircraft in just 120 days.
Had this not been agreed to, then one of the most valuable in the whole of the war may never have even been created in the first place; it was this US impetus that helped to push things forward on the aviation front. With a strong fighter brought in to assist the British with new firepower and a far more balanced link between speed, strength and agility the P-51 became one of the most impressive aircraft of the era and helped to conquer many battles at the time.
It served on every theater of war for the Allies and became a true symbol of where the Allied defenses were going – they had the strength and the intelligence to do the job, it just required the hard work and commitment of the pilots to pull it off!
In this package, you’ll gain access to this fighter in all of its fateful glory – every last feature that could possibly have been included has been, so that you are flying a genuine aircraft fighter that looks and feel as it should. For any big war enthusiasts out there who want to try and see just how this now obsolete fighter would have held in the skies, you’ll love this mod.
It’s been created strictly by the book, ensuring that it carries all of the key attributes and figures of the originals – this changes the entire landscape of the flights that you will undertake, making them feel completely different to anything else that you might have come across in a flight simulator so far!
Arguably the most iconic fighter of the entire Second World War, this is well worth having installed if you have any kind of interest in that era of aviation
Everything about this plane follows the example of the real thing, with every bolt placed in the right location and each possible inclusion that can be added has been to make a truly complete experience
You’ll find it easier than ever getting used to flying this aircraft due to how close it is to the real thing – any WW2 enthusiast should feel right at home!
A massive amount of time and patience has gone into the overall design and shape of the aircraft – if you want to use something that is a close to the real-thing in terms of performance and aesthetics as you are likely to see, then this is what you need. It comes with custom cockpit systems and gauges that help to blend all of this together, helping you get used to the rather unique style of cockpit thanks to the massive attention to detail on every last section!
3D lighting included to help spark up the roads and make sure that you can get home as quickly and easily as you possibly can, regardless of where you might be considering going in the future! Whether it’s a small rural airport or a massive international one, the new lighting will make landing and actually staying on track to land effectively much easier than you might have become used to!
A map is included in the cockpits pilot to help make up for the lack of GPS systems and other tools – flying around and getting from A to B is quite easy with the help of this excellent little map, making your entire flight simulation experience that little bit simpler

ACCU-SIM has long been the ideal pinnacle for many people when it comes to high-end, realistic flight simulation. Of course, the real issue is that sometimes what we expect to see in a simulator simply was not capable of being included within the development timeframe; this is where the mods come in, and A2A Simulations in particular. One of their main mods has been ACCU-SIM because it does just that – it creates a completely accurate simulation of what you would actually expect to see, feel, and deal with up there in the skies. The first thing that you need to remember is that many of the smaller details that majorly contribute to the success and/or failure of many flights is actually not a part of the FSX series – instead, this mod brings them to life in incredible fashion.
The version of ACCU-SIM included within this package has been masterly designed so that it enhances the specific qualities of the aircraft that you are flying, as well as the overall world around you. ACCU-SIM works on far more than just how the physics in the game work; it boasts a list of almost countless smaller additions that have been made over the years to bring ACCU-SIM to the very pinnacle of sim modding. If you want to enjoy something a bit more unique than the usual aircraft found within FSX, then the ACCU-SIM package is just what you need to truly augment it.
ACCU-SIM is one of the most thoroughly enjoyable additions because it brings one thing in abundance; variety. Every flight should be different from the last, and the huge array of things that can –and will at one stage – go wrong in ACCU-SIM is absolutely outstanding. If you feel like your flights seem to pass without a single hitch then you’ll absolutely love the help that ACCU-SIM can provide you with in changing the challenge.
Now, you’ll be able to deal with those instant reaction situations that can happen to any pilot, at any time. Rather than miss out on the incredibly important educational journey of learning how flights can go wrong, use ACCU-SIM to give yourself all the knowledge that you need.
This stands as a legitimate improvement tool for pilots – after all, it was designed by legitimate pilots. Now, you’ll find jetting off into the skies easier than ever before, whilst simultaneously adding to all of the issues that can happen at any given time. This more realistic approach helps to add another layer of authenticity to th whole flight; are you balanced enough? Is there too much fuel going into the wrong areas? Can your engine handle the stress?
All of these questions – and more – will simply come pouring out of you as you work your through one of the most thoroughly enjoyable flight simulation modifications that has ever been designed. Introduce a new layer of challenges to your current level without making it an impossibility with the help of ACCU-SIM.
Designed to make the impossible things in a flight simulator a simple addition to the overall picture, ACCU-SIM totally revolutionizes the way that a typical flight will be handled. With the help of the unique dual-speed supercharged engine that resides within the P51, you’ll be able to witness the full might of this stunning aircraft at full flow
Everything has been added in with the addition of ACCU-SIM – from the P-51’ incredible power in flight to its stunning and in-depth cockpit, you will feel as if you are truly in charge of a mobile battle station as you rip through the skies at the by-the-book speeds that this aircraft was capable of
Nothing is taken for granted with ACCU-SIM; the clue is in the name! Everything included in here has been researched and validated long before even being considered to be part of the overall finished product. If you want to see genuine authenticity, then ACCU-SIM can provide it in abundance
Your aircraft has a memory – if you had a bad day yesterday and bashed it up pretty bad, you’ll need to take a trip to the mechanical hire and get it fixed up. Remember, it’s your plane, so you need to be the one who can keep It in the best shape you can!
Get a first-hand education on how aircraft of this power and strength actually handled; this is a far more authentic take on the way the Mustang cut through the air – and enemies – than anything else out there on the market at the moment

An immersive in-cockpit experience that really helps to drive home just what you are in command of. The ACCU-SIM features help to make the cockpit even more demanding, and even more powerful. If you want total dominion over your Mustang, with the potential to control every last action that it carries out, then this is what you want to be looking at!
Real-life examples of how piston combustion engine modeling takes place as you fly – this aircraft is literally alive, it’s not just a nice feature to make the sounds!
Everything from the temperature and the density in the air will affect your own flight performance; these tiny factors that would seem pointless to towers can be the difference between being early and never actually completing the flight at all!
Nothing is left to chance within this design, and it results in a truly remarkable improvement over the already impressive FSX features – you’ll now be able to go the next level of flight simulation, with all of the power that you could possibly need at your fingertips
