  • Description

    This DC Designs F-14 Tomcat package for MSFS brings you highly detailed and VR-ready A and B models in a total of seven paint schemes, with front and rear cockpit positions, authentic cockpit night lighting, custom sound sets for both variants and custom-coded manoeuvring flaps, slats and intake ramps.

    Among the other features are F-14 Tomcat systems which include Direct Lift Control, CADC and basic ACLS, Head-Up Display, reflective glass, icing and rain effects, numerous accurate animations and user-controlled ordnance via the Payload Manager.

    DC Designs are proud to announce the F-14 A/B Tomcat package for Microsoft Flight Simulator, bringing you two highly detailed MSFS models.

    Fully native MSFS aircraft

    • All models have been coded with Microsoft Flight Simulator native 'Model Behaviors' animations and built to MSFS operational specifications to prevent issues with future simulator upgrades.
    • All custom cockpit instruments and screens are coded in HTML for native, high-performance display in MSFS
    • The Tomcats make use of the new simulator's features such as effects and sounds, fully reflective glass, native aerodynamic sound structures, the new 'Modern' aerodynamics system with the ability to provoke 'departure spins', and customised visibility controls for wheel chocks, covers, tie-down chains and GPU
    • The Tomcats also contain custom-built and animated effects such as afterburners
    • Full compressor-stall engine modelling and coding for the F-14A TF-30 engines
    • Other features include authentic cockpit night lighting with brightness controls, which includes user-operated 'slime lights' for combat operations, and custom-coded manoeuvring flaps, slats and intake ramps, all based on aircraft airspeed and angle of attack
    • Numerous external animations including canopy, crew ladders, tail hook and control surfaces
    • The F-14 Tomcats are fully compliant with Virtual Reality headsets
    • Full custom sound sets for both the TF-30-powered F-14A Tomcat and the GE-F110-powered F-14B Tomcat

    Cockpit

    • Truly 3D virtual cockpits featuring accurately modelled ejector seats, controls and detailed texturing
    • All analogue instruments constructed in 3D with smooth animations
    • Reflective rear-view mirrors
    • 'Scratched canopy' glass effects, reflective glass, icing and rain effects
    • Crew figures in the virtual cockpit are coded to disappear when you occupy their seats
    • Front and rear cockpit positions included in both variants
    • Fully customisable crew helmets, names, flight suit patches and even faces

    Aircraft systems

    • 3D modelled dials, ADI, 'whiskey' compass and other high-detail instruments designed to emulate the appearance of the real F-14 Tomcat
    • Display screens with visual layouts based on the real aircraft's systems (within the confines of MSFS' current capability)
    • Head-Up Display with authentic layout based on the real F-14A
    • Custom-coded, user-controlled ordnance via the simulator Payload Manager, allowing for live mounting of weapons on hardpoints with active weight increase
    • F-14 Tomcat systems include Direct Lift Control, CADC and basic ACLS
    • The aircraft are compatible with the Hard Deck Simulations Aircraft Carrier Module

    Great plane, very detailed model. Just fun to fly. I also got excellent customer support because I had issues with installing. The support of Just Flight was very patient and gave me detailed instructions on what I could try to solve my problem :)

    Such an amazing airplane it even has afterburners with the swept wing design.

    Fantastic addon for MSFS! I love jet fighters and enjoy the F/A-18 in FSX. The acceleration and the high-G turn are so pressure-relieving. However, there are few modern jetfighter addons in MSFS. I've tried DC Designs F-15 Eagles for MSFS but it didn't achieve my expectation. Now DC Designs F-14 A/B Tomcat MSFS has reached a new level in MSFS. You can fly over Mach speed easily and also enjoy the low-speed stability. The simplified control system is its advantage. I would recommend this addon if you expect to fly a classic jet fighter and enjoy the weather and scene in MSFS.

    The flight model requires armloads of trim. You are constantly trimming. So it isn't hard to fly. It's just large, heavy and lets you know right away that if you don't fly her, she'll fly you. The engines seem to spool up much too quickly and unrealistically for a first generation afterburning turbofan. Also the buffet seems to come on too early. The pitch rate should be higher. Especially with the wings fully extended. The thrust for the engines seems too close together. Realistically, with one engine out, the thrust from one can easily exceed the yaw and roll authority. Also I almost wish the A model's engines were less forgiving like the real thing. It took forever to even get one to fail and it was fairly mundane and easy to control. The pilot and RIO figures look a bit cartoonish. The put-your-face-on-the-pilot thing is somewhat adolescent. Otherwise the visual model looks good. It's worth it but I wish it made you work harder.

    Superb achievement for FS2020. I have loved this air superiority fighter since a long time and I was hoping, that when FS2020 was released, it would be included in MSFS. It remains to tame it ! Flight tests continue :)
