FSX/FS2004 – WWII Heavy Cruiser ADMIRAL HIPPER. This was a 210 m fast and heavy armed warship of the Kriegsmarine (German Navy), almost the same as the Prinz Eugen-class. The design was even quite similar to the battleship Bismarck and Tirpitz, only everthing was smaller. Even that cruisers were eqipped with a catapult and they carried at least one Arado-196 floatplane. My FS-model provides an animation to rotate the catapult and to perform a catapult launch of the Ar-196. All main turrets and a few of the AA-guns are animated in azimuth and elevation. Even two torpedos can be shot from one of the four triple torpedo launchers. The crane brings a boat down to the water surface. Twenntyseven cameras let you explore the beautyful ship and the virtual decks and let you enjoy the amazing animations. Ship and weapon effects are included.
