Australis OC 2014 for FSX -- 28Mb

Australis is a joint private/military operations center and occasionally some prototype aircraft testing. It's official purpose is military missions in the far east of the globe. It acts very much the same as a normal AFB except that it is outside the US boundaries, and exists near another US installation not far away.  It's unofficial second purpose is acquisition of foreign aircraft and their technology - Russian and Chinese-built aircraft are trafficked through here! It also doubles as a spaceport, and has SV-Class shuttle recovery facilities similar to the ones in Echo Canyon, Borealis, and Maraca Island. It's sister base is Borealis OC.

Australis began as Basecamp "Foxtrot" in 2011 by Mike Vivaldi. It was originally created as an alternate landing site for both the Aurora Project and for Orbiter space missions, and early on consisted of simply a runway and a fuel truck and a crane for lifting the shuttle onto its carrier.

"Basecamp Foxtrot" 2011

In 2012 the base grew more complex and turned into a full base of operations, and began to mirror what Josh had done with Borealis OC. Since all the other sceneries we've done as a group were all so far away, we decided to make an operations center in this part of the world, so Australis was born.

Australis OC - 2012


In 2013 Austin Gardner of Firestorm Aerobatics joined the project and finished the base completely with the addition of base housing, a hydroelectric power plant and added his own inputs. It's also his first released scenery project. At his suggestion, an RAAF Bell 206 was added to the Bell Camo Package released here.
