MGAI MQ-9 Predator B USCBP

Post by Greg »

This model was part of the 2011 MAIW Christmas special and until now only available from the home page.

Our first 2011 Christmas present was brought to you by Mike Guenthner and Michael MacIntyre in the form of the United States Customs and Boarder Protection's Predator B unmanned aerial vehicle.

The USCBP operated 6 of these aircraft at the time of release for surveillance and boarder protection from ground stations located in Arizona, North Dakota and Texas. Included in this release are two different models, the standard RQ-9 and the RQ-9 Guardian model which is slated for long range ocean patrols using its sophisticated sea search radar system. There are five aircraft textures included for the five known aircraft. The sixth aircraft, a standard RQ-9 had just come on line and carried no serial number markings so it has not been included with this release.

There are paint kits for both model variations included as well as voice pack files to be used with the models which operate under the standard USCBP air unit call sign of "Omaha". Michael MacIntyre has recreated the flying characteristics of this UAV in great detail through his customized FDE set.

Please see the included readme file for important information regarding creating flight plans for this model.

The 3D model has been extensively modeled by Mike Guenthner and includes the standard MAIW AI model features that you have come to expect from Military AI Works. Additional assistance with this model and its textures was provided by Kevin Reed who was instrumental in its overall development.

We hope to see this futuristic aircraft patrolling the virtual boarders of your Flight Simulator skies soon.
