The Virtual Aeroshell Aerobatic Team aims to emulate the real life Aeroshell Aerobatic Team in DCS World. This includes sight references, maneuvers, timing, and the overall professionalism of the real team. Founded by Le’Will Brown in early 2019, the team performed their first LIVE virtual airshow at Virtual Aviation Nation on 10.18.2019 and plan on flying many more events to come!
The T6 Texan and the challenging demonstration Aeroshell performs makes this an incredibly fun team to be apart of. Slow speeds, lots of pull, p-factor, rudder, loud engines, and tons of smoke is what it’s all about!
We are in no way shape or form affiliated with Shell the company, or the Aeroshell Aerobatic Team. We are simply a group of individuals from the United States & Canada who love the real team and want to replicate Aeroshell virtually.
If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to reach out!

The North American Aviation T-6 Texan two-place advanced trainer was the classroom for most of the Allied pilots who flew in World War II. Called the SNJ by the Navy and the Harvard by the British Royal Air Force, the advanced trainer AT-6 was designed as a transition trainer between basic trainers and first-line tactical aircraft. It was redesignated T-6 in 1948.
In all, the T-6 trained several hundred thousand pilots in 34 different countries over a period of 25 years. A total of 15,495 of the planes were made. Though most famous as a trainer, the T-6 Texan also won honors in World War II and in the early days of the Korean War.
The Texan evolved from the company’s BC-1 basic combat trainer, which was first produced for the U.S. Army Air Corps with fixed landing gear in 1937 under a contract that called for 174 planes. North American designed the NA-49 prototype as a low-cost trainer with many of the characteristics of a high-speed fighter.
Although not as fast as a fighter, it was easy to maintain and repair, had more maneuverability and was easier to handle. A pilot’s airplane, it could roll, Immelmann, loop, spin, snap and vertical roll. It was designed to give the best possible training in all types of tactics, from ground strafing to bombardment and aerial dogfighting. It contained such versatile equipment as bomb racks, blind flying instrumentation, gun and standard cameras, fixed and flexible guns, and just about every other device that military pilots had to operate.Source by Boeing
