Antonov An-24RV. Full version

Recommended Posts

Hello, we are glad to announce that our long-dated project "Antonov An-24RV" is getting really close to the release. If you know already our An-24B, An-26 and An-30, you'll notice only few changes in the exterior visual model : the right engine nacelle contains now a little complementary jet engine (this is the main difference between An-24RV and An-24B), the rear cargo door can be opened, the nose opens too (in maintenance mode) and glass cleaners are functional. The plane got also automatic propellers feathering (when an engine stops airborne). But the main improvements are inside.The aircraft has now a fully functional virtual cockpit and a cabin. The 3D instruments panel is based on the Bocharnikov/Gritsevsky panel (included in An-26 and An-30 packages), so it is quite complex. You'll surely need to read the included manual. The panel comes in its new version 1.3, compatible with FS9. In spite of the complexity of the virtual cockpit, the model is perfectly flyable from it. The textures are now almost ready (but not completely)We plan to release An-24RV next week after a beta-testing.

This is an unbelievable airplane. First is a great design and second the flight here is better than a lot of payware. I only wish it had a cheaters version (english cockpit.) The Russian lettering causes me a lot of difficulty though it is fantastic.I wonder if it will work with FSNav? If it would I would think it is the most perfect airplane on my HD.Eric

The plane is compatible with FS2002. The panel is another story. In fact, we'll include the latest version (1.3) made for FS2004, so it isn't sure it works in FS2002. However, this version is intermediate, since some instruments don't work yet in FS2004, namely the VOR indicators. Mr Gritsevsky is working on it.Some nightshots...

Dear Dimitri,First, congratulations for your great work. The AN-24 was the most important plane in my youth and I'm looking forward to fly your new version.Second, I have a question - can the 'old' textures (from the AN-24B) be used for the new AN-24RV? I ask this because I made about 20 repaints for your AN-24B, most of them are AN-24V/RV in reality, but I didn't release them yet (Tarom, Balkan, Air Ukraine, LOT, Iraqi etc). If they work with it, should I send them to you to include in your package, or release them separate?Kind regards,Gergely Kosa, Bucharest

Hello,I've just uploaded the full package to avsim.com file library. Hope it will be available soon. There is an install program - you set up the plane, the panel and the docs in a click. It comes with an HTML manual in English and even with a little russian-english glossary for those who still has difficulties to read russian gauges. (practice!!! what will you do when a new Tu-114 comes?)Finally, Stepan Gritsevsky solved the problem of bad working gauges and the new panel (included in our package) works perfectly in FS2004. 2Gergely: the external texture set is the same as for An-24B, maybe just some little changes (namely the texture inside the cargo compartments). If you repaint the new An-24rv, don't forget to change the interior!
