The de Havilland Vampire, also known as the DH.100, was the second military jet to be built in the United Kingdom by the de Havilland company. It entered service just after the Second World War and has the unique feature of being equipped with a twin-beam rear fuselage. It was the first jet aircraft to cross the Atlantic Ocean, and the first jet aircraft capable of operating from an aircraft carrier. More than 4,500 were built, some under licence, and used by about 25 different countries. Switzerland tested it in 1946, followed by an order for 75 aircraft in 1949 and the manufacture under licence of 100 aircraft. Originally acquired as a fighter, it was used until 1970 as a fighter and ground attack aircraft. It was then used as a training aircraft and target aircraft for the anti-aircraft warfare. The last military flights took place at the end of 1990, many of them were sold at auction and some still fly in various countries.

The Vampire DH-100 underwent two major upgrades: the first in 1960 with the installation of an ejection seat and modernized instrumentation (artificial horizon and gyrocompass). The second in 1980 with the addition of UHF radio equipment and a transponder (IFF), which necessitated the lengthening of the nose, which became pointed like that of the DH-112 Venom of the time. The 1960s also saw the start of blind flight (IFR) for the Swiss Air Force. The existing direction-finding stations were supplemented by approach radar installations (GCA) and a very original omnidirectional talking radio system (NAFU). We intend to reproduce the operation of this system and thus provide our Vampires with blind flight and landing capabilities in a future update that we hope will also allow the engagement of the armament as realized in the P3D version.

Obviously a labour of love for the development team. Systems are well modelled and the plane flies well.

It is an early jet and while it has very pleasant handling characteristics, you need to read the documentation as the engine requires careful handling or you'll end up belching flames and smoke - though this can often be recovered with the extinguisher!

External model is good and reflects the small aircraft well. Sounds are good. Cockpit is effective and realistic - though with one or two points where the textures are a bit flat. The other challenge with the cockpits is the mix of languages on the instruments and the use of metric measurement. This accurately reflects the Swiss aircraft it is based on.

If you want a pleasant early jet and are happy to learn its (few) challenges, then this is a rewarding package that you will like.

Overall, highly recommended.

In the future...
A tweak or two to the cockpit would be nice.
As most of the hard work is done, it would be great to have a RAF FB.6 with English instrumentation.

I really love this aircraft. I have a very high end computer and I find the textures look great even in vr. What we really need is an update with some new liveries(RAF, RCAF even if the model is very Swiss) or a paint kit. This is such a fun little jet and really fun slowing for approach and getting the throttle control just right.

Nice plane but looks like FS9 inside with 2D textures which is unacceptable for MSFS2020 standards and for the price, Outside textures with poor painting.... flight model is still quite ok and pleasant to fly

One piece of information concerning the commentary on the texts in the cockpit of the Vampire: Switzerland being a quadrilingual country, the choice of inscriptions in the cockpit of military aircraft from the 1940-1990 period was delicate. The German-speaking majority did not want to impose itself too much! And as it was the time of the Second World War, making a distinction with the German neighbour was probably important. As a result, all military aircraft had French cockpit markings (with some exceptions on later instruments). The SwissMilSim Vampire being a faithful reproduction of the aircraft of the time, the texts are in French. As for completing with the original English versions with faithful instrumentations, SwissMilSim has done so in FSX and P3D versions with little sales success!

This is a great little historic aircraft and a nice model. Well worn interior, decent exterior, good set of features and excellent sound that is all too often lacking in far more expensive payware. It's old, cranky and not so fast, but has good pilot viz and fun to fly. Hopefully, folks will come out with some other liveries and more will give the Vampire a chance because it's worth it.

Those who criticise the looks have no idea what they are talking about while i'm not a pilot i have sat in a real vampire and the cockpit was just how it was in the real world, i also see no problems with the texturing and quality on the exterior model either, and while i have seen a few planes textured a little better they in no way deserve your crummy 1 star. The external textures are part of the livery and could be improved by other textures if they get made anyway.. That all being said i do have some issues, the documentation while good can be a little confusing in its wording i am guessing this maybe a language translation issue i would also for this price hoped it would come with a few different versions and some historical liveries like raf. After shutting down ambient sounds vanish which is a little weird and there is no sound difference between canopy open and closed The labels in the cockpit are German? while i hate to be arrogant most simmers speak English and English is the international language of aviation so would have been nice to have them in English .apart from those which are minor the plane is great to fly and the sound of the Goblin Engine is amazing. i found it pretty tricky to land getting the speed right i also found it very easy to spin and i haven't been able to recover from it maybe its me or maybe its unrecoverable i have no idea if the real one was so easy to spin also that engine blows up a lot so need to keep the throttle down out of the red all in all a good product and i hope a few fixes are made to make it even better

Those who criticise the appearance of the cockpit have certainly never sat in it. I have flown this plane, I can assure you that it is a very faithful historical reconstruction not only in appearance but also in performance, and not an avatar!

very disappointed for the price! if the plane is overall quite pleasant to fly, it is much less to look at! the interior is absolutely awful and very far from the standards and what we can expect for this price in MSFS2020. and the exterior looks like a drawing lacking realism. This addon looks like it was frozen more than 18 years ago in FS9

Not worth the price! it Looks like a good freeware!! the cockpit textures are atrocious and the exterior looks like a toy! the flight model is pretty good, but it's far from what we can expect in FS2020 and especially for this price...

It is a nice model overall and flies well. The reason I am calling it a couple of stars short is because the VC texturing (and modeling of certain parts of the VC) look outdated as if they are a port-over from FS9/X? Surely this can be upgraded to more current standards?
