  • content_pasteComplacency killed the cat, or so the saying goes. After logging about 1850 hrs in Microsoft Flight Sim and recording over 700 flight videos from takeoff to landing I felt pretty confident. But that was in an MB-339 jet. By contrast I wouldn't have logged 2 hours in the EA-7 Optica. That lack or experience and overconfidence shows at the end of this video when I stalled and crashed.
    Luckily I was thrown clear and landed in a haystack.

    The AJS-37 Viggen is a Swedish double-delta supersonic attack aircraft from the late Cold War. It was the backbone of the Swedish Air Force during the Cold war, serving as the main attack and anti-ship platform. The AJS is the 90�s upgrade of this 70's era aircraft, adding several advanced weapons and systems functionalities. The aircraft was designed around the pilot, with an excellent man-machine interface, supporting the pilot through the smart use of autopilot systems, radar and HUD symbology in order to deliver the ordnance onto targets from treetop level with high speed attack runs.

    The aircraft is armed with multiple weapon systems ranging from programmable stand-off weapons such as the RB-15F antiship missile to the BK90 Cluster munitions dispenser to various bombs, rockets and missiles for a wide range of target types. The aircraft can also carry gun pods and the Sidewinder series of infrared-guided missiles for air defence and self-protection purposes.

    The MiG-21bis is a delta wing, supersonic, fighter-interceptor jet aircraft. Much like the AK-47 became the everyman's rifle, the MiG-21 has been operated by more than 40 countries worldwide, and has enjoyed the longest production run of any modern jet fighter to date. The MiG-21, in all of its variants, has fought in wars stretching all the way from the Vietnam War in the 1960's to the modern day Syrian Civil War. Owing to its unique blend of versatility, ruggedness and maintainability, the MiG-21 remains in active service to this very day.

    Leatherneck Simulations' recreation of the MiG-21 is, by far, the most accurate and comprehensive simulation of this supersonic jet fighter to date. The fully simulated systems, interactive cockpit, advanced flight modeling and incredible graphical fidelity come together to create a package that will provide you with the most authentic simulation possible. So strap in, and get ready to experience the rebirth of a legend.

  • content_pasteMACEuses an energy-based aerodynamic model for aircraft flight. Specific Excess Power (Ps) is the primary driver for describing an aircraft’s flight performance. At positive values of Ps an aircraft is free to turn, climb or accelerate, when Ps is negative an aircraftis forced to decelerate or dive or a combination of both. Psis also useful to depict an aircraft’s speed-altitude envelope;if Ps has reached zero, the aircraft can neitherclimb nor accelerate, andthus the aircraft has reached eitherits ceiling or maximum level velocity. When an aircraft maneuvers, it retrieves the specific excess power of the aircraft at its current altitude, Mach number, and g-loading. It then initiates a climb angle, turn angle, and rate of acceleration based onits specific excess power data-tables. As the aircraft’s altitude, speed, and loading changes, its energy state changes as well.The Energy model continuously retrieves the available excess power and adjusts its climb angle, turn angle, and rate of acceleration to reflect the new energy state. An energy based aerodynamic model is a good balance between reasonably-close aircraft performance and limited CPU usage when trying to simulate large numbers of constructive forces.The final equation yields a relatively easy means of developing data tables that incorporate the necessary parameters (i.e. thrust, weight, drag, load factor, wing area, Mach number, and dynamic pressure) to produce accurate Psdata.
