Editorial

Fancying a tremendously fun trip back in time, I decided to finally re-install FS2002 to hop into the cockpit of the wonderful F-14B Tomcat VF-103. This is an aircraft with a waspish nature, capable of nipping in and out of positions that usually people would not waste their time even trying out in – the best part about this, though, is the fact that this model does the real thing perfect justice.

The whole enjoyment and feel of flying the real thing comes from the fact that it can hit speeds few of its rivals were capable of – even today, this feels incredibly powerful. The dynamics and the way it flies are all hugely impressive, with a nice attention to detail in the way that it flies – the whole thing can feel lightning quick at times, sometimes too quick, but for me it was something that was very fun to get a hold of.

Like a Ducati racing bike, it threw me off the proverbial saddle more than once as I tried to dominate over its incredible power. This is an aircraft that I was unable to get to grips with at any real point at first – I just spent more time being quite scared by its gripping, powerful style!

It also came with awesome Gmax models inside which are all designed and edited to ensure they look the part in FS2002 – the usage of photorealistic textures does the aircraft the world of good, as well.

Now, it looks far more alive and authentic than it may have done in the past whilst also doing everything that it can to create the right atmosphere within the aircraft. It’s got fully moving parts that make it a hell of a lot of fun to be around, and also nice and simple to operate.

Add in the fact that it comes with the great 2D panels that make it a piece of cake to operate, and you have an aircraft that is well worth the time of even the most skeptical of pilots. The entire aim of what you get to fly in this package is to hit rapid speeds and deliver absolute chaos at the other end thanks to the sheer power that it comes with.

Well, you might not be able to launch off that armada and put an end to whatever is in front of you, but you can quite easily grow to love the excellent gauges and effects. These have been found online and then be totally adjusted to ensure they fit with the real model, making it much easier than ever before to hop into the cockpit, take off, and just enjoy the world around you from a whole new view and vantage point.

The entire aircraft has been meticulously looked after in the design phase and this makes a monumental difference to ensuring that you can fly it properly – tough to learn but user-friendly once you get there, I’d recommend this Tomcat addition to all flight simulation fans who like a challenge that comes with an excellent reward at the end.
