Miltech Simulations U2 Spyplane


The U2 Spyplane is a single-engine, high altitude reconnaissance aircraft operated from the 1950s, and still in operation today, by the United States Air Force (USAF) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

It was flown during the Cold War over the Soviet Union, China, Vietnam, and Cuba; and more recently has taken part in post-Cold War conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as supported several multinational NATO operations.

The U2 is famous (or perhaps, infamous) for being incredibly difficult to fly. Its design, combining the aerodynamics of a glider with a powerful jet engine, make U2s incredibly difficult to land (requiring assistance from a chase car), and cruise incredibly close to the coffin corner.

Miltech Simulations U2 Spyplane will feature:

  • Two variants - U2R (analog cockpit) and U2S (glass cockpit). Each variant will feature an accurate Flight Model (challenging to fly) and a more relaxed "arcade Flight Model" for casual pilots.
  • Accurate flight model developed by Aerospace Engineers to precisely model the effects of high altitude flight, including the coffin corner. 
  • A mission system, inspired by real-life Cold War and modern events; including the missile crisis in Cuba and the Space Race; as well as modern events such as the Chinese Balloon incident.
  • Chasecar with voice commands to guide you during landing.
  • Various sceneries included - Groom Lake, RAF Fairford and Osan AB.
