Great sim-moments in Birds of Prey

Birds of Prey

" The weapons were destructive to any object, no matter what the device or target. I have witnessed a Forger get hit AFTER launching from a carrier by a Mk83 slick released by a B-1B Lancer. "


... attention to detail...

" Air density - this caused problems with many aircraft engines. Low level, the afterburner could instantly kick in, but get it above, say 25,000ft and you may have to wait several seconds or more for it to open up. "

Matt Wietlpach's F/A-18 cockpit is pretty well kitted out and uses Project Magenta software to drive the instrument displays. - Matt Wietlpach's F/A-18 cockpit
