iniBuilds released their P-40F WarHawk for Microsoft Flight Simulator only a few weeks ago, but they have already issued a number of updates to improve the aircraft.

These updates have been steadily coming out from the team, improving on the original release. Version 1.02 (patch 1) is perhaps the most significant so far with VR support improved, better sounds and enhanced aircraft behaviour. That said, the team continued to fix issues with a subsequent update since.

The Curtiss P-40 was an iconic single-engine fighter that flew first in 1938. The P-40F featured a Merlin engine, also found in planes such as the Spitfire, instead of an Allison engine that was found in most other variants of the plane. This made the aircraft perform better at high altitude.

The latest version of the P-40F WarHawk can be obtained through the iniManager right now. If you don’t already own the aircraft, you can buy it for £14.99 from the iniBuilds Store.
