About This File
The North American B-25 Mitchell is a medium bomber that was introduced in 1941 and named in honor of Major General William "Billy" Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation. The B-25 first gained fame as the bomber used in the 18 April 1942 Doolittle Raid, in which 16 B-25Bs led by Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle attacked mainland Japan, four months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
This plane has elements which contain realistic data and characteristics. All guns(+1 Cannon) are operable (minus the side ones). Four standard bombs are also loaded in the bombs compartment.
The plane comes with one sitting american pilot and it also contains a functional instruments panel. The panel bears a partial similarity with the real one. The pilot and some instruments have been borrowed by the Grumman J2F fine plane (created by Pascal Dumat & Thomas Brueckelt) add-on http://www.qualitysimulations.com/vsf/files/Grumman_J2F.exe
Engine sound is realistic and as a horn it uses a WW2 pilot voice sound.
