    F7F-3 Tigercat for MSFS

    The F7F Tigercat, which was derived from Grumman's first twin-engine fighter, the XF5F-1 Skyrocket, appeared as the result of a Navy request in June 1941 for development of a larger, twin-engine fighter for use on board the planned large aircraft carriers (Midway-class). The airplane was the first twin-engine fighter ordered in large quantities and the first carrier aircraft to incorporate tricycle landing gear. Built in single and two-seat variants, the heavily armed fighter served in ground support, night fighter and photo reconnaissance roles after World War II and in Korea.

    Tigercat variants included :

        Clean variant - No external stores. 3 fictional 'racers', also no guns or cannons.
        Fighter variant - Carries one belly drop tank. The typical day fighter loadout.
        Rockets variant - Carries two underwing drop tanks and eight unguided rockets. The typical ground attack loadout.

    Features :

    - folding wings
    - PBR materials/textures used throughout
    - Wwise sounds package with multi-stage engines, pilot's slide canopy muting, switch clicks and other unique cockpit sounds

    flight model is ok at best trims need work modeling is ok room for improvements in future updates sounds need a lot of work hope to see this one updated soon and made better its not to bad as is just needs a few tweeks


    Sera surement un très bon achat après une ou deux mises à jour. Les sons sont loupés et ne sont pas dignes d'un produit de 2023. Les livrées de base sont trop basiques ( prendre celles de Jankees ) . En VR, le poste de pilotage rend très bien, mais tout n'est pas cliquable. Un gros travail a été fait, mais il en reste autant à faire pour avoir un F7 réussi. Will probably be a very good purchase after one or two updates. The sounds are missed and are not worthy of a 2023 product. The basic liveries are too basic (take those from Jankees). In VR, the cockpit looks very good, but not everything is clickable. A lot of work has been done, but much remains to be done to have a successful F7.


    Sweet plane. Handles well, meaning hard as the original probably was. Nice looking cockpit and sounds


    This isn't anywhere near Flying Iron Level! Needs lots of work. Many bugs and low detail model. Not worth the price


    Really nice to see Virtavia doing classic military planes, and the visuals here are top-notch both in and out of the cockpit. Some nice details and animations, including folding wings, the tail hook, stepladder, etc. Flies well, with performance in line with the F7F's specs. Roll rate is good, but it does feel like you should be able to pull a tighter turn. Still, overall the flight model feels convincing. (Given there are few folks around actually flying Tigercats nowadays!) The one area I hope Virtavia can tweak is the sound. I don't have an issue with the sound samples or mix in general, but when you throttle back in the v1.0 release, the sounds is like what you hear when a radial engine is idling on the ground. Totally appropriate for taxiing, but not when you're in the air just slowing down. Hopefully this can be tweaked so that the lower-power settings feel more appropriate for sound in the air. The air racer variation with the spinners is nice, as well as the armed versions. Overall, a nice addition for aviation history fans! Would love to see the audio improved, and some glossier repaints from the community, but no regrets for the very reasonable price.


    I want to love this, I really do. But there are glaring issues. Sounds: The mix of the sounds would be okay if this was for FS2002. This is 2023, and we have so much better sounds and sound mixes, this is just a let down. Not to mention the wind noise in exterior cameras is just unforgivably loud. Textures: No sign of high res textures or PBR materials. Cockpit textures can be very hard to read until very zoomed in. Modeling: The modeling is actually quite good, although there is some light bleeding through the model in the cockpit where there shouldn't be, overall the model is nice. Flight control surface animations seem a bit soo slow to be realistic however. Also, would love to see a more WWII style cockpit and/or the Asobo default pilot avatar used. The current pilot model looks terrible. Flight: While I've yet to compare numbers from a manual, she's at least decent to fly, no complaints there.
