The Mitsubishi MU-2 is a high-wing, twin-engine turboprop with a pressurized cabin and is considered somewhat of a hotrod by its enthusiasts. Ideal for freight, passengers and cargo, the MU 2 is one of the fastest turboprops in service today.

The MU-2 began in 1956 and was intended to be a light twin turboprop. In 1965, Mitsubishi established a production facility for North American at San Angelo, Texas. When MU-2 production ended in 1986, it was assembled exclusively in Texas

Recommended System Specifications
While cutting edge add-on aircraft such as this will "run" on a system with the minimum specifications outlined by Microsoft, we recommend the following as minimum guidelines to achieve acceptable performance:
  • Pentium IV or AMD Athlon/Duron microprocessor or higher with 2 GHz MHz + speed and 512 MB RAM minimum
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 or Flight Simulator X.
  • Windows XP or Vista *
  • Nvidia or ATI Radeon based 3D accelerator video card with full antialiasing and T&L lighting capability and a minimum of 128 MB onboard RAM
  • 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 + video RAM will perform better.

*Only Windows XP and Vista are supported for Flight Simulator X. The aircraft may install and run in Windows 98/ME or Windows 2000 in FS 2004, providing your Windows software environment is in good order. But since the Windows 9X platform was notorious for program installation problems, driver conflicts, general instability and poor memory management we cannot support problems resulting from the use of this long obsolete operating system. The Windows 9X platform  is generally considered inadequate for today's DirectX applications and Windows XP is strongly recommended.  We cannot support issues arising from the operating systems prior to Windows XP
