VEAO P-40F Kittyhawk
VEAO P-40F Beta planned late 2014

Hi Guys,

Thought I would start the Dev Diary for the P-40F Kittyhawk.

I dont know about you guys but I always remember the airfix models of the Kittyhawk when I was a kid, with the desert colour and big sharkmouth on them. I am really looking forward to bringing this aircraft to you guys as soon as we can.

So if you have not already guessed the fact that I am posting this today means that the P-40F will be the first aircraft we are releasing!

Currently the aircraft is with the modeler having the finishing touches added to the model and then its onto the cockpit for him. Once this is done the texturing can begin as well as the model integration. Sound recording will be completed hopefully by September as well so we have some nice authentic sounds for the module.

The ASM is being started as well, with the FM soon to follow with some of the basic framework already being laid down.

We have some great research materials for this aircraft as well as access to some great people who have worked and flown this. We have no less then 3 P-40 pilots who are ready and willing to assist us with the fine tuning of the flight modelling of the sim. A number I am convinced will increase closer to the release of this aircraft.

Currently Beta release is planned for the back end of Q4 2014, although this is subject to change, this remains very much our target.

I'm hoping to be able to share some renders of this with you guys in the next week or two and anyone lucky enough to get to Duxford for Flying Legends can come and find me as I will have the model with me.

I will keep you guys in the loop as/when there is more to report.

All the best as always

VEAO P-40F news

Couple of new renders for you guys

As you can see the P-40F is coming along nicely, we hope to have the model finished within the next 2 weeks or so

What you see here is not the current state of the model just an example of how things are progressing

VEAO P-40F Cockpit update

Couple of renders showing the work that Rock is doing on the P-40F cockpit.

Bear in mind these are max raw renders so they do look a little different in sim

VEAO show Charlie (P-40F pilot)

We'd like to introduce you to our new team member Charlie. Charlie is our pilot for the P-40F.
You'll see more of him in his aircraft over the coming weeks....

VEAO P-40F webpage available:

For those of you that are keen eyed and keep an eye on our site you'll notice that the P-40F product page is now live.

You can't pre-order yet but we thought you'd like to see some new images on the product page at least ;)

VEAO some info about the P-40F develop

Haha you guys love it

To clarify the suspense...
I'm home tomorrow morning early (01.30) and I'll be talking to the team tomorrow night to finalise the release date.
I'll then talk to TFC/ED this week to ensure it doesn't conflict with any other module release date and we'll agree a launch.
Then we'll put it live on our site for pre-sale. It's normally on ED site about a month or two prior to release as pre-sale.
Steam is always about two weeks after release.

As I said on Matt's stream chat yesterday (for anyone that missed it) we have three TFC Pilots that fly their P-40 checking out ours the week of Legends (next week). The Stig's cousin (our EFM programmer) is at Legends from Friday next week and will be talking to the pilots about their feedback.
In fact all of the VEAO P-40 team will be at Legends except one who had to cancel last minute which is a shame (we'll miss you Storm).
Nick Grey (head of TFC for DCS) normally flies our aircraft in-sim as well and gives feedback and actually Stephen Grey also did last year.
When the team gets back home from Duxford those tweaks will be made but we have a polished product ready for Legends so it's just tweaking after that.

We'll then get it to the VEAO and ED testers for final bug hunting and feedback and then it's good for ED final sign off (yes they do vet it to set standards).

So they are the last milestones to meet for P-40 (and all projects actually).

So when we say Soon TM, we mean it

Yes Q2 ends tomorrow but we want to get pilot feedback on the EFM prior to release and Legends is the best time to do that as Nick and his pilots are there.

So, I can't give a definitive release date for the reasons mentioned above.
