After three days of teasing, AOA Simulations have finally confirmed the company is developing a Beechcraft AT-6 Wolverine and T-6 Texan II for X-Plane 11. 

As covered in our previous article on the 21st of March, AOA teased the flight-sim community with previews of an unknown turboprop aircraft in development in a Facebook post. Many guesses emerged from users with some correct answers but today the project was formerly announced on Facebook as well. 

The Beechcraft T-6 Texan II is a single-engine turboprop engine that was developed by the Raytheon Aircraft Company on the base of a Pilatus PC-9 for the U.S. Air Force and Navy to replace their ageing fleet of Cessnas 37B and T-34C. As of today, over 850 of them have been produced. The AT-6 Wolverine is a light attack and weapons training version, that is equipped with a more powerful PT6-68D engine, a reinforced structure and different weapon configurations. 

A few months ago, AOA confirmed that their T-7 would be compatible with Vulkan, check our article about it out.
