JessicaBelle Aeronautic Projects has come on the scene with the release of it’s first warplane, it’s rendition of the Focke-Wulf Fw 190, also known as the “Butcher Bird.” Maneuverable, compatible with two combat systems, and with armament of machine guns, bombs, and rockets, it is both an excellent dogfighter and ground-attack aircraft in areal duels and combat RP battles.
From this writer/pilot’s point of view, the JessicaBelle Fw 190 flies easier than the other two brands I’ve flown. The engine scripts are made by Shana Carpool, whom has a record of building popular aircraft. Flight can be performed from either first-person-view/mouselook, or third-person-view from behind. Besides the owner, the plane can also be made to be flyable through someone else through guest mode.
Other controls are as follows:
start/stop=starts/stops the plane.
g=raises/lowers the landing gear.
vice on/vice off=activates the vice combat system,allowing guns/rockets/bombs to operate.
tcs on/ tcs off=activates the TCS combat system.
team1-4=chooses your vice team,default will be no team/team 0.
b=fires/drops rockets or bombs
left click on the mouse fires the guns once vice is active,also works in mouselook.
directional arrows also work.
page up/down=increases/decreases throttle.
The ease of flying the plane makes it ideal for dogfighting for both new and experienced pilots, able to maneuver with ease. For a combat roleplay sim with the VICE system, in which combat can be Air vs Ground vs Sea, the Dayafter Fw 190 makes for a useful addition. It can attack ground and sea targets with either bombs or rockets, the latter being the more popular choice (rockets can also be used against bombers, as real Fw 190s did, but some combat RPs consider them “cheating”).
By all means the plane is good for more than just combat. The same ease of control that makes it so good in a dogfight makes it a great plane for acrobatics, or just casual flying around.
There is also a smaller version of the JessicaBelle Fw190 available for pilots who prefer tiny avatars.
The Real Fw 190:
The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Würger (Shrike) was designed by Kurt Tank in the late 1930s. It was used by the Luftwaffe during the Second World War in a variety of roles. Like the Messerschmitt Bf 109, the Fw 190 was employed as a "workhorse", and proved suitable for a wide variety of roles, including air superiority fighter, strike fighter, ground-attack aircraft, and operated with less success as a night fighter.
The Fw 190 was well-liked by its pilots. Some of the Luftwaffe's most successful fighter aces flew the Fw 190, including Otto Kittel with 267 victories, Walter Nowotny with 258 victories and Erich Rudorffer with 222 claimed kills. A great many of their kills were claimed while flying the Fw 190.
The Fw 190 participated on every major combat front where the Luftwaffe operated, and did so with success. Some 28 Fw 190s are in museums or in the hands of private collectors around the world. In 1997, a German company began manufacturing new models.
