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.

Features:

  • Highly accurate VC, with many functioning parts;
  • ReviC12D gunsight, that can be turned on and off;
  • 7 different models to cover variations;
  • 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;
  • Propeller blades which alter their angle with prop setting;

  • 3D gauges in the VC, for incredible realism;

The Manual and Paintkit are the F-4 aircraft folder, as is an optional aircraft.cfg instruction for FSX users.

Please note that the Bf-109F is a fairly demanding model, and is recommended for computers 3 Ghz and above, with dedicated graphics cards. However, those with less powerful computers (e.g.2.8 Ghz) have also run Flight Replicas aircraft without serious problem.

RKAPPS - FSREALISTIC PRO MSFS

What's here works really well for the most part. It's not perfect and has a few bugs. The most worrying thing, though, is that the developer seems to have stopped updating it. As it is, this is a functional but incomplete product.
RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY: TBPB 2020 FSX P3D
Graham
Brilliant scenery, and excellant after sales service from Richer Simulations. I had problems installing in P3D v5.3, but after an exchange of two messages with RS, it was all sorted out. Extremely fast response on their part. Turns out I had a problem with my SODE installation which prevented the tarmac and aprons showing. Uninstalled and reinstalled SODE and hey presto! All good. Very pleased. This scenery is compatible with P3D v5.3.
FRANCE VFR - AIRPORT FRANCE PACK 2 MSFS
damon
Acceptable quality. mainly use of photo textures, low res in places. good pricing and cost effective way to build up some airports in the sim. not at quality level of some of the better well known developers but to be fair, not marketed that way either and priced well. 3 star quality but extra star for price
FRANCE VFR - AIRPORT FRANCE PACK 1 MSFS

Acceptable quality. mainly use of photo textures, low res in places. good pricing and cost effective way to build up some airports in the sim. not at quality level of some of the better well known developers but to be fair, not marketed that way either and priced well. 3 star quality but extra star for price
FRANCE VFR - LFRK - CAEN CARPIQUET MSFS
damon
One of the best France VFR airports so far, texture quality appears better than some of the earlier airports from the packs. I think the earlier airports are 'ok' quality but priced accordingly, but I was surprised how much better Caen was. still not completely on par with the big name developers but not at that price point either, I think for the price represents very good value and great addon with the France VFR NW pack. 4 star quality but 5 overall due to price
TROPICALSIM - BUENOS AIRES EZEIZA SAEZ MSFS
Peter
This is a decent Tropicalsim airport. It's basic, but does the job.
PAULO RICARDO - SANTOS DUMONT AIRPORT (SDU) RIO DE JANEIRO CITY LANDMARKS (INCLUDE) MSFS
Peter
Really well modelled. Currently this is my favourite South American airport in MSFS. Great attention to detail and makes full use of the textures, PBR and night lighting MSFS has to offer. It also has some scenic and challenging approaches!
JUSTSIM - LARNACA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Peter
Overall disappointing. Textures are not great. Night lighting is poor, except for the car park! Hopefully it gets an update.
MARIO NORIEGA DESIGNS - CAPRONI-VIZZOLA C-22J VENTURA MSFS
Kenny
Phenomenal bang for your buck with this one. This little jet is tons of fun to fly around. I enjoyed the cockpit modeling a lot, as it really does give off that strong 1980's aesthetic vibe. Fuel consumption feels about where it should be for a jet like this. Systems functionality is decent, though as with the vast majority of MSFS modules, don't expect 100% fidelity. Everything that really counts is there though, and more than just the bare bones. The flight model is fairly forgiving, though that's pretty much true for basically all MSFS aircraft. You will want to ere towards the longer options of municipal airport runways, as you're not going to have the same stopping distance as something like a 172, but that makes sense given the type of aircraft it is and the amount of energy you'll have on touchdown. All in all, would recommend. I kind of wish the civilian variant had actually entered into full production and had been a bit more popular. (Though it did see service with the Italian military as a trainer.) This must have been a joy to fly.
