X-Aviation and the newly re-branded TOGA Simulations (formerly X-Scenery) will be releasing the Mitsubishi MU-2 version 2.0 on Friday. Fans of the version 1.0 aircraft will even see a substantial discount on offer when it goes up for sale. Here are some of the details.
The Mitsubishi MU-2 is a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries manufactured high-wing, twin-engine turboprop aircraft with a pressurized cabin. With a cruise speed near 300 knots, this is a fast short range light utility transport can cover about 1,200 nautical mile while cruising at 25,000 feet. A decent performer!
The version 2.0 of TOGA Simulations MU-2 is a rebuild and remake of their very first payware project coming out with X-Plane 9 and seeing constant updates through multiple versions of the sim. This new version features redone systems, modeling and textures. A series of development threads announcing the project and then providing periodic updates including this last one detail the behind the scenes that went into the project.
Current owners will get a $20 USD discount coupon.
It’s late in X-Plane 11’s life and few aircraft are releasing right now which makes this aircraft release notable. The developers have confirmed that there will be a free update to X-Plane 12 when the time comes.
Release is expected on Friday, July 15, sometime in the afternoon.
Check out this announcement thread for the details.
It’s good to see some late breaking X-Plane 11 content even at this late moment in the sim’s life.
