Virtual aviation enthusiasts can now join the modern-day boys in blue, open the taps and move the mud at Mach 2.2! The real Tornado was developed by perfectionists and this unique simulation is no different; it’s officially licensed by the Royal Air Force and depicts aircraft from No. II(AC) Sqn, IX(B) Sqn, XIII Sqn, 14 SQn and 617 Sqn. The Panavia Tornado, a multi-role combat aircraft like no other, was the product of a unique European collaboration. Similarly, its virtual counterpart is a joint venture between celebrated developers Lago, Just Flight and the Royal Air Force. The result is a brilliantly detailed aircraft for FSX/FS2004/FS2002 and, as a bonus, there’s a simplified version for Combat Flight Simulator 3. The 16 FSX/FS2004/2002 liveries include RAF, Luftwaffe, Italian and Royal Saudi Air Force colours.
Take the Tornado up in Flight Simulator 2002/2004 from one of three custom airfields to try out the terrain-hugging radar, use the ground proximity warning system, or test your flying skills behind the VC-10 and KC-10 with the in-flight refuelling feature – a first for Flight Simulator! (Please note: The scenery and refuelling feature are not included for Flight Simulator X and CFS3.)
Realistic FSX/FS2004/FS2002 animations include cockpit canopy, pilots’ heads, control surfaces, thrust reverser, refuelling probe and even the Tornado’s famous swing-wing system. The front cockpit comes with a high-detail 2D panel incorporating moving map and rear view mirrors.
The highly detailed HUD for FS2002 includes heading switches, radar altimeter, bank angle, velocity vector, heading and vertical rate indicators.
In Combat Flight Simulator 3 the Tornado becomes a fearsome war machine clothed in three authentic liveries. Custom damage model and activated CFS3 weapons means you can take on the enemy and hit him where it hurts!
