FSX Military Aircraft

You can fly the fastest fighter jets, the most nimble combat aircraft and the biggest bombers with the downloads in this section.  All of the aircraft files are compatible with Microsoft Flight Simulator X.  All of the downloads can be installed alongside your existing aircraft in FSX. While FSX isn't a combat or military flight simulator, you can still pilot these types of aircraft, however there are some limitations.

Two MiG-21MF fighter aircraft flying in FSX

Image shows two MiG-21MF fighter aircraft being flown in FSX.

In FSX you are unable to shoot down other aircraft or deploy bombs, things that you could do in a military simulation, however the aircraft are perfectly flyable with great cockpits, exterior modeling and 3D animations.

Microsoft Flight Simulator isn't well known for it's military simulation functionality and initially Microsoft released other simulators along side such as Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator, however once this was discontinued, many military enthusiasts turned to FS2004 and FSX for their military simulation pastimes.

With the release of Microsoft Flight, we can expect great things from a well balanced simulation package, however the focus will always be on civilian passenger and general aviation flight.

All of the files usually come with installation instructions present in the files, such as readme documents.  Installing the aircraft is quite an easy process, however if it becomes confusing, the forum is a great place to find help.

The aircraft featured here have great 3D models and accurate flight dynamics and are created by a talented team of developers, who create these models in their spare time and release them as freeware.

Featured aircraft include some of the best names in military aviation such as Boeing, MiG, Grumman, McDonnell Douglas and Lockheed-Martin.  Some of the most popular are the following:

  • Grumman F-14D Tomcat
  • General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon
  • Lockheed C-130 Hercules
  • McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle
