The release of the T-28B/C package introduces some new features which include weapons systems, engine damage modelling and VC rain, fog and icing effects. The T-28D has been updated to include all these improvements. Existing T-28D owners can download the AntsT28DV200 installer from their retailer account. You should be able to run the installer and it will overwrite version 1.0 or 1.1. You can determine which version you have currently installed by opening the Pilot’s Handbook. The version number is written on the top of each page.

Ant's Airplanes T-28D Trojan offers Flight Simulator X pilots the unique chance to fly this classic military aircraft. It is very well detailed on the exterior, and the 3D panel is simply superb.

The T-28 Trojan will never be a considered a beautiful aircraft like sleek piston powered fighters such as the Mustang and Spitfire. The aircraft was initially created as a two seat trainer for the US Air Force with the first aircraft flying in 1949. The aircraft had a short production run with the last new T-28 delivered in 1958.

The original A model had a miserly 800 horsepower, 7 cylinder radial engine and a two bladed prop. The Navy became interested in the aircraft and ordered 491 B models which had the considerably more powerful 1425 horsepower Wright Cyclone R-1820-86 9 cylinder engine. The C model followed a few years later and this was modified with a tail hook for carrier operation. A shorter prop was installed on the C to prevent prop strike. Some of the original A models were modified with a larger engine and became the D model. These D models saw combat in various regions around the world.

This aircraft is based upon the T-28D “Huff ‘n’ Puff” from Warbird Aviation at Archerfield Airport.

The initial release is only for the T-28D. It may be possible that in the future the A,B and C models will be done (stay tuned!)

Typical cruise speeds for the T-28D are 180 to 200 kts with 30 in Hg of manifold pressure and 2000 rpm. Climb rates can approach 4000 fpm.
