Work began on a new version of the Bf-109 at the start of 1940, to replace the Bf-109E. Pre-production models of the new F "Friedrich" version first appearing at the end of 1940, after the Battle of Britain. The fuselage aerodynamics were improved, most noticeably with a new engine cowling and spinner, and the squared wings of the Emil replaced by newly designed and improved units featuring most noticeably rounded wing tips and different flap configuration. The first production series F-1/F-2 received the 1,175 hp (875 kW) DB601N engine. The 1,350 hp (1,005 kW) DB601E was first used in the F-3 model together with a better propeller with improved performance. The most popular version, the F-4, appeared at the start of 1942. Pilots generally agreed that the F series were the best-handling of all the Bf 109 series.

The armament of the Bf 109F consisted of the two MG 17 above the engine plus a cannon firing through the propeller hub: The early F versions were equipped with the MG FF/M cannon, the F-2 got the 15 mm MG 151, and from F-4 on the 20 mm MG 151/20 was used. Several aces, particularly Oberst Adolf Galland, criticised the light armament as inadequate for the average pilot. Major Walter Oesau even refused to fly an F as long as 'Emil's were still available. Only after a lack of spare parts, did he accept an F. Later on, an attachment of underwing 20 mm cannons addressed the issue of fire-power, but at a price to performance. Werner Mölders on the other hand was very much pleased and saw the single centerline gun as an improvement. It is possible that the criticism of the Bf 109F's armament is based on the early F-2 version with the 15 mm MG 151/15 cannon, which was later replaced by the 20 mm version of the same weapon and was seen highly effective by aces like Günther Rall.

Hans Joachim Marseille, the Luftwaffe pilot who scored the highest number of kills against Western aircraft, a total of 158, achieved most of his victories in a Bf-109F-4/Trop, in North Africa. Having scored five kills in the Battle of Britain, he rapidly accumulated further victories over the desert due to his excellent marksmanship. Marseille died at age 22 on 30 September 1942, when his Bf-109G caught fire and he struck the tailplane while trying to bail out. He would be remembered as the "Star of Africa".

Approximately 2,200 Friedrichs were built.

  • Each model features versions with and without pilot lifejacket, for over-water missions;
  • 7 different textures;
  • Accurate and challenging ground-handling characteristics;
  • Droppable Drop Tank, that removes weight and fuel from the aircraft.cfg for realistic performance;
  • Droppable bomb;
  • Working Flettner tabs on the rudder of appropriate models;
  • Accurate pilot flight suit, lifejacket and flight helmet;
  • 100% authentic Bf-109 startup sounds;

Thierry
Beautiful scenery by Digital Design! The high resolution textures, very well modelled buildings (with interior), and great land class on the approaches on both runways make it, in my opinion, one of the best sceneries available at the moment. The only thing that disappointed me a little bit, are the 'wet' apron textures. They're all right, but not as breathtaking as on DD's other sceneries.

What a terrific piece of scenery design. It's not cheap but worth every Euro. There's detail everywhere and frame rates are superb. Don't stay airside either. Take the Pajero and drive around the outside where the car parks and terminal entrances are. The detail is amazing right down to flower beds. Stay airside and you'll miss all of this. Definitely a 5* must have airport. Well done Digital Design.

Another fantastic scenery from Digital Design. Blends seamlessly with surrounding Orbx products and the performance is excellent. Textures are crisp and look incredibly real. A must have!

I'm using this in P3D V4.5 HF3. Whilst the airport itself is ok, the surrounding photoreal is very poor, especially the roads. It is very low resolution and detracts from the scenery overall. Airport building textures are also low quality. The blending with Orbx OpenLC South America is not great either in my opinion. This scenery is a step down from Sierrasim's other excellent sceneries. For this price point I expected an increase in quality but was disappointed. I hope they provide future updates addressing these points.

Really nice airport with great details. I only miss some animated vehicles and hope they will come in an update. Anything else is fine and it blends well with Orbx.

Hands down for this masterpiece of work! It is well detailed and beautiful. A perfect rendition for your collection of airports. If you fly to France or in France this is the airport for you. Frames on this airport are fantastic and the developer has done a great job without sparing any detail.

The product is okay. However, there are annoying mistakes. For example, the scenery sometimes does not correspond to reality because there are still buildings in the simulator that were demolished in reality. In addition, the jetway model is different from stand to stand. That looks bad, maybe you wanted to save work here. It should also be mentioned that the advertising of the jetways has been out of date for years and does not correspond to the real situation. The ground markings in the south of the airport are also incomplete. In my opinion too many mistakes that have arisen from sloppy and incomplete work.
