The Lockheed P-3 Orion is a four-engine turboprop anti-submarine and maritime surveillance aircraft developed for the United States Navy and introduced in the 1960s. It is used by a number of Air Forces.

The models are versions for the Royal Australian Air Force, the United States Navy and the New Zealand Air Force.

Initially the propellers are stationary, use the B key or Aircraft Action Trigger setting 2 to start or stop the engines. For AI operations, use the Aircraft Engine Start Rule, kuid2:60238:80004:1

The aircraft will load passengers and goods, and will flare on landing, use the V key. They emit smoke from the wheels on landing, trigger setting 4.

The commercial version, the Lockheed Electra L188 is also available – see the Commercial page.
