Canadair/Orenda Sabres?
« on: January 17, 2010, 05:59:45 PM »
Hi Jan et al,

Looking at the future plans for the Sabre fleet, would it be possible to add Canadair's later versions to your list? Specifically, the Orenda 10 powered Sabre Mk.5 and Orenda 14 powered Sabre Mk.6, the latter being the most potent Sabre variant in the world! As far as modeling goes the Mk.5 is equivalent to the later F-86F with the 6-3 fenced, hard edged wing and the Mk. 6 was a slatted 6-3 wing. Some very early Mk.6s had the fenced wing but were later refitted to match the rest of the slatted ones.

The F-86E/F we have now is basically equivalent to the Canadair Mk.1-4 series, I'm more interested in seeing a later Canadair version in the hangar in future!  ;D

Thanks for this awesome aircraft!

Jan

Hey Jocko,

Well,possibly yes. Basically just about every Sabre variant is on the work list. How much of them eventually get materialized remains to be seen of course. With native FSX models in the pipeline now too i wouldn't hold my breath though.  ;D

cheers,
