Editorial

Having spent more than my fair share of time within flight simulators using military hardware, I was naturally very excited to get a chance to try out the Tomcat in all of its glory. The package itself was sold with the very highest standards expected, so I turned it on expecting to be absolutely wowed. From the quality and attention to detail in the textures to the way that the cockpit is a perfect recreation of the real thing, however, I was very impressed indeed from the first time that I took off and done a few laps.

The first thing that impressed upon me, though, was the cockpit. Upon sitting in the aircraft and getting ready to take off, I had to take a quick detour and head over to Google and look for cockpit pictures. To a gauge and a button, this manages to fit everything into the place that it should be – if you’ve ever had the luck to fly a Tomcat in real life you should feel right at home when you sit down and fire this up. It’s got that intricate style and nature to it that I can only recommending giving this a try.

The high resolution textures and photorealistic nature of the whole thing is just so impressive, with the artistic skill and quality of the designer making a telling difference to the whole thing and bringing it all together like never before. I love flying these kinds of aircraft, though, because they let you see the sheer power that our military pilots are getting access to in real life. With authentic dynamics being installed in the cockpit of this monstrosity, you will find it incredibly easy to just jet around and enjoy the scenery as you go!

Self-shadowing and bump mapping throughout also help to smooth everything out and make it look as authentic as it possibly can. It’s such an impressive design and overall format that you will be able to get something far more diverse from you typical civilian aircraft – if you are looking for a change that really takes into account the differences between military and civilian aviation, this is the place to get started with for sure.

I was so impressed by the dynamics, though. The large readme that comes with this lets you know what you are dealing with but you don’t need to doubt any of the specifications they claim for a minute – this thing just comes with real power! I was quite daunted by it the first few times that I got into the cockpit, so it was a nice change to be able to fly around in the aircraft after getting used to it for a few weeks.

Don’t expect to be able to fly around like a master within a few hours, but when you get the skills down and manage the aircraft properly you will notice a much more comprehensive style than you have ever been able to notice in the past.

Note: You will need the Acceleration package installed to use this – I found this out at my peril so make sure you already have it installed and ready to go!

Again not sure if I have done something wrong. I downloaded this to use in P3d. The plane loads fine and graphics outside are great. Issues im having is that the graphics inside are not clear and many buttons that look like they should work don't. One of these is for the displays switch will not move from off and therefore cant turn them on. If I have done something wrong please let me know.

Hi. I like it , but can I use it for FSX.

Ryan RoycroftThu, 13 Jun 2013 23:38:49 GMT

My Tomcat is a beauty as well BUT the ext. view reveals its faults, all movable surfaces didnt not download, from the nose cone to the swing wings they are gone, Im going to d-load a second version from this Dino guy(genius) BTW! I hope this works as it looks BADASS!

absolutely incredible better than payware!!!!!!
Pro MemberJonnyx5000Thu, 07 Oct 2010 22:07:10 GMT
Nice Aircraft very realistic in appearance, i would give this a 10 rating but there seems to be a floating blue light where the front landing gear is situated, when the landing gear raises the light stays there lol resulting in a floating light from no where. Any idea how to remove it ? ,pressing the lights on and off doesnt seem to effect please fix.
Pro Membersarge57Tue, 21 Sep 2010 01:54:08 GMT
Aircraft appears as skeleton and remains that way most of the time. When "skin" does appear it beautiful. No HUD display at all.
Pro MemberbelgeodeTue, 07 Sep 2010 23:10:20 GMT
THIS is the Tomcat all others in FSX should and will be judged by. Dino Cattaneo has made another winner here! A joy to fly every time, is there anyplace a tomcat CANNOT go? Anytime baby!!!
Pro MembertxvMon, 23 Aug 2010 16:04:14 GMT
Probably a noob question but I'll ask anyway . I fallowed the read me for the install to work proper (unzipped to MFS X ) but the plane is invisible at least most of it is also had some gauge issues ware the to monitors don't light up , the heads up display shows nothing . On the other hand it still fly's nice . Its probably what i call UE what i call a user error , on my end.
Pro MemberjwblackThu, 05 Aug 2010 04:19:43 GMT
WOW, I MEAN FREAKIN WOW, BEST DOWNLOAD I'VE HAD SO FAR, EASY INSTALL, GREAT FLYING EVERYTHING WORKS, EXCELLENT GRAPHICSM SCREENSHOTS I'VE TAKEN ARE AMAZING. SO MUCH DETAIL. DEFINATELY NEED A GOOD SYSTEM, BUT WELL WORTH IT, THANKS SO MUCH.

Easy download and install. Overall design and flight controls are excellent. I enjoy flying this aircraft especially on carrier missions.
Pro MemberGeekpower2000Mon, 12 Jul 2010 17:16:51 GMT
Great attention to detail, very nice work was done here. I think I have some system issues running the plane, but I am not sure if it's Direct X compatability, system specifications, or the level of detail that I am running FSX at. Still, someone poured their heart and soul into this add on. I highly suggest it for a morning of messing around.

VERY smooth to handle, even at high speeds. Easy aircraft to learn and fly, and no shortage of performance. Excellent attention to detail, both inside and out.
Pro MemberpawSat, 24 Apr 2010 18:10:29 GMT
Excellent!!!! The only thing I can think of is that I have trouble seeing the HUD. But if I were given this aircraft, I would have thought it was from PMDG or something like that.

Pro MemberAviator13Fri, 05 Mar 2010 21:01:36 GMT
this download is a waste u could see through the aircraft and u do need a fast graphic card on ur pc or else it would lag but i don't think u wanna fly this tomcat when u see thought it
Pro Membermmoore4249Tue, 23 Feb 2010 02:04:23 GMT
one of the best downloads i've downloaded so far
Pro Memberbig_bossTue, 16 Feb 2010 22:38:38 GMT
I wouldn't recommend it for people who's machines are just able to handle the graphics of the game, had a near fatal crash occur the first time I tried it
