Editorial

Although not always a huge fan of flying around in military hardware, looking at it purely from a technical point of view they do tend to be quite wondrous machines. So putting aside my pacifist nature I hopped into the cockpit of a USAF F-15 Eagle, and found myself within no time at all feeling as if I was in Top Gun!

The aircraft flies smoothly and clearly, and can hit speeds far beyond that of which I’m used to hitting when using a flight simulator. From the hardware point of view, very few models out there can match this for speed, power and overall authority in the skies.

The most impressive nature of this package, though, was just how well it captures this factor. With two different unique versions included – high visibility and low visibility respectively – you can make sure that you are flying something which feels incredibly sharp and easy to use.

It comes with plenty of those extra little features that you need if you want to try and put together the most authentic remake possible – Kimitaka Nishida (model) and Paul Barry (paintwork) need a huge amount of credit for the great work they put into this model.

The models which are included both look awesome, and go some way to ensuring that you have no problem in detailing and controlling your position when moving forward. There are two different versions open to you for various reasons, but each aircraft comes with some awesome features included such as;

New lighting to help you see where you are going – very useful when flying at night as these lights actually do, you know, illuminate the sky! Other mods have provided poor lighting but this does a wonderful job of creating the perfect way to represent this awesome model.

Smoke to help the aircraft fly and perform at its very best – not only does this make it look the part but it helps to make you really know what heights you are hitting. The whole aircraft does a fine rendition of copying the real thing, bringing it to life magnificently.

The GMax model being used is hugely impressive, too, and this does a wonderful job of selling the aircraft and letting you see just how detailed and unique this model can be. Add in the fact that it comes with additions like contrails when you pick up excessive speed and afterburner effects and you have an aircraft that looks wonderful and also manages to really capture that detailed and classic look that you would expect when you hop into the cockpit of one of the most feared and respected fighters out there to pick from in this day and age.

If you want to see what this kind of raw power and energy would feel like in your control, start with this.
