FSX/P3D – Vought FU7 Cutlass Updated. The Vought F7U Cutlass was a United States Navy carrier-based jet fighter and fighter-bomber of the early Cold War era. It was a highly unusual, semi-tailless design, allegedly based on aerodynamic data and plans captured from the German Arado company at the end of World War II. Regarded as a radical departure from traditional aircraft design, the Cutlass suffered from numerous technical and handling problems throughout its short service career. The type was responsible for the deaths of four test pilots and 21 other U.S. Navy pilots. This is an FSX update of the FS2002/2004 model deigned by RanchoJen models and features a modified 2D panel and a highly detailed static VC (non-functional gauges). Automatic smoke and afterburner effects added. Credits go to the designers mentioned above, whom I’ve tried to ask their permission for this update but their E-Mail as well as the website mentioned in their readme is invalid anymore.
