Cessna 337 Skymaster and 02A Military Variant

 

The Cessna Skymaster Models H & D and its military variant, the 02A, represent an innovative twin-engine all-purpose aircraft built in a push-pull configuration. Instead of the engines being mounted on the wings, one is mounted on the nose and the other at the rear of the pod-style fuselage. The stabilizers are mounted on twin booms that extend from the wings, creating centerline or symmetric thrust. The usual yaw characteristic of twin engine aircraft is avoided, and also, the aircraft is much easier to handle on one engine.

 

337 Skymaster Models:
337D - Normally Aspirated
T337H-SP, Turbo-supercharged and pressurized cabin

 

02A Variant - Normally Aspirated

Load Manager is included, for configuration of additional paint schemes, and for setting the aircraft weight and balance, as well as keeping track of operating and maintenance costs.

Many systems that are not modeled in Flight Simulator have been created for the Cessna 337/02A.

 

The 02A features ordinance mounted on the exterior surfaces.

Recommended System Specifications
While cutting edge add-on aircraft such as this will "run" on a system with the minimum specifications outlined by Microsoft for Flight Simulator 2004, the following are minimum guidelines to achieve acceptable performance:
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004  or Flight Simulator X - *Required for use of this software
  • Pentium IV or AMD Athlon/Duron microprocessor or higher with 2 GHz MHz + speed and 512 MB RAM minimum
  • Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP
  • Nvidia or ATI Radeon based 3D accelerator video card with full antialiasing and T&L lighting capability and a minimum of 256 MB onboard RAM minimum.
  • SoundBlaster Live or equivalent 128-bit DirectX sound device
  • Up-to-date DirectX video and sound drivers

Obviously, higher end systems with 3.0 GHz+ speed  CPU, 1024 MB system RAM and 256 MB or preferably 512 MB video RAM will perform much better.
