Microsoft Flight Simulator T-6 Texan II

Today third-party developers announced a relevant new aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator and showcased new assets about an upcoming airport.

The aircraft is the popular trainer platform Beechcraft T-6 Texan II announced by Iris Simulations, This is a rather natural move for the developer, as it already released an excellent rendition of the Pilatus PC-9, upon which the Texan is based.

At the moment, not much information has been shared, but we get the first screenshots, which you can enjoy below. Considering its relevance as a main turboprop training aircraft for the US Air Force and the US Navy, on top of air forces from other countries, it's definitely great to see that we're getting it in Microsoft Flight Simulator.


Speaking of screenshots, we get new ones from MLD Scenery about the upcoming Timișoara Traian Vuia International Airport (LRTR) in Romania. According to the developer, the wait for its release won't be long now.
