FSX Antonov AN124-210 Super Transport
FSX Antonov AN124-210 Super Transport. This is the modern version of the AN 124-100, with Rolls Royce engines. She has more power, a higher service ceiling, and longer distance than any previous versions. Flight dynamics are based on real-world specs, making this bird one of the most realistic fl...

Having never had the pleasure of getting on a real-life Antonov aircraft, I’ve only ever been able to live out and see these aircraft through the media and through the world of simulation. Whilst this annoys me, it has given me plenty of scope to try out some rather interesting aircraft I’d most likely never get near boarding in real-life, anyway, and one of these is the Antonov AN124-210.
Otherwise known as the ‘Super Transport’ this model of aircraft is more or less revered by approximately for its classy style and its effective nature, the fact it’s become such a flagship within the Antonov brand is another positive for it. I decided to try out this remake of the Antonov for FSX and I have to say that I was hugely impressed by how it flew.
This is a modern equivalent of the old AN124-100 if you have ever tried one of those. This comes equipped with Rolls Royce engines instead of something a bit more typical, and therefore brings an extra degree of “roar” to the table. It has more powerful, and it also typically has a much higher service ceiling than its more dated counterpart.
The whole thing is much easier to use than previous versions, and the longer distances that it can fly over its predecessors makes it a big choice for a lot of people. All of this being said, the Antonov AN124-210 is a hugely popular aircraft because it’s incredibly fast and nimble for such an aircraft that takes on such significant duties.
If you are used to aircraft of this size taking an age to do anything then you’ll be shocked by the speedy and responsive nature of the aircraft itself, which is something I was quite blown away by. I’m used to aircraft like this feeling their size and their weight, but this has the profile and the response of something half of its size.
Best of all, the aircraft itself is based entirely on real-world specifications so you know that you are flying something that is built upon the original idea. This isn’t just some basic, simplistic remake that uses basic or fictional dynamics; this manages to capture the whole thing more or less perfectly.
In fact, according to the developers and others I have spoken to who have used this, it’s one of the most realistic models on the market. It’s nimble and fast whilst offering a whole range of versatility and comfort when flying – what more could you possibly ask for from a model like this?
The realism and the depth of detail throughout is one of the most impressive factors of the whole thing as it ensures you are getting the most important part of any good flight simulation project; realism. If you are getting a realistic and enjoyable response from this model then you are going to get to the help that you need is settling down and enjoying its profile – if you like bigger aircraft with a real “oomft” to them, then try this out!
