  • precision_manufacturingLockheed
  • content_pasteS models feature upgraded engines and avionics making them truly all weather fighters and the last production models. The leading edges of the F-104 wings were so sharp the ground crew had to exercise special care not to be cut when working near them!

  • content_pasteMiGForce: A and B models, a/c model by DC Designs. Livery by Donka. | Another head turner and a classic marque. Flies quite stiffly compared to say, the MiG-29.

  • local_airportLockheed Martin F-16 Falcon
  • precision_manufacturingLockheed Martin
  • content_pasteA classic. 'nuff said! Modelled very nicely by SC Designs. A Dec 2022 upgrade added CFD, but I have to say it seems rather stiff. It's still early days for realistic implementation of CFD I feel. Obviously there's a learning curve.

  • precision_manufacturingMcDonnell / McDonnell Douglas
  • content_pasteThe Hornet was conceived from the word go as a dual-role aircraft, hence the designation F/A-18, which means Fighter-Attack. It was meant to supplement the role of the F-14 Tomcat, providing shorter range Air defense and to totally replace the A-7 Corsair and A-6 Intruder.

  • precision_manufacturingMikoyan Gurevich
  • content_pasteThe "Soviet Super Fighter" is what we called it in the 1980's. Modelled here by Deimos. The cockpit interior has bland textures, however that's irrelevant to me because I use a physical cockpit. BUT - it's in the flight model that the MiG wins! Fantastically fluid and responsive. Does it perform accuratelt at the extremes of the envelope? Well, (1) I wouldn't really know and (2) I don't think ANY of the ac do, and that's down to limitations of the sim's flight modelling. I also enjoy the engine sounds, which use at least 3 different frequencies and change as you move around the airframe. Great fun.
