There are no subject matters that we can verify the data with, although it is not a requirement if you have seen the criteria that Wags has sent.:

If possible, proof of access to subject matter experts on the aircraft (pilot that have flown the aircraft).
Instead we have multiple reports like this one:


That help us build the EFM needed for this Komet. Additionally there is a lot of airfoil data collected on 163B thanks to NASA. Finally we are in contact with a group that have a ME-163 that is used for gliding.

For the icing on the cake, we have a member that does aerospace engineering who also has a hobby of making real rockets (On a smaller scale of course) that is helping us.

Thanks

We would like to introduce CHSubZero to our team who will be working on the liveries for the ME-163B. We are looking forward to showing you some high quality historically accurate liveries.

@LP, you do realise it's now going to be Swiss skins only from here on, right?

Default March 2018 Mini Update

CHSubZero has already started doing research on decal locations for the liveries and has produced this spreadsheet to help show were they go.





We hope to use this research to incorporate the BORT numbers into the ME-163 model. Jone's article he wrote here on how to do this will help us.

Over the couple next days i plan to add clickable elements into the cockpit and have a first version of the HUD.

I built a model of this rocket (not jet) powered aircraft when I was a kid.

These things had a nasty habit of exploding upon landing with remaining volatile fuel still in their tanks.

Sign me up. If I am still kicking upon release, I will purchase it.

This will be really exciting and provide some very interesting missions. Fighter pilots will have to protect the Komets takeoff and landing fields from enemy fighter aircraft who would try to shoot them down on their glides and landing approaches (similar to Me-262 jet stories).

It looks like it will be really fantastic to fly the simulation. If nothing else, it will be a great 'trophy plane' to add to my aircraft stable and to design offline missions for it through the Mission Editor!

Well done! Salut!
