Editorial

When I first downloaded this mod, I was not sure what to expect – the creator, Kimitaka Nishida, is a very impressive editor but I hold my hands up and admit that I had never really spent any time with the F-15 aircraft before. I’ve stated on more than one occasion that my limited experience with military aviation probably makes me quite susceptible to their “WOW” factor; and that is exactly what I got here!

It’s brutally fast and hard to keep up with at times for someone like myself, but I’m sure that military enthusiasts would absolutely love flying around in a model like this. It feels fresh, it’s engaging and it’s very well managed within the limitations of the simulator that it is for.

I had to fire up an old copy of FS2002 to try it out at first, before trying it on FS2004 and finding that it worked just as well on either. However, one thing that really stood out to me was the fact that the NASA F-15 Eagle here feels a whole lot faster than many of the military aircraft that I have had the pleasure of using before.

It feels like a speeding bullet (definitely faster!) and gives me a huge level of satisfaction from the cockpit. It’s brutally quick and takes no prisoners at all, making it very easy to manipulate and fly to my own standards.

I was hugely impressed with the way that it could handle itself going at daft speeds in tight conditions. On more than one occasion I flew myself into a bit of trouble and, sure enough, this monster helped me get out of that problem within a matter of seconds. It’s very easy to maneuver even in tight spaces and for that reason alone many people will love flying around in this.

I was a huge fan of it as soon as I stepped off for the first time. It felt really powerful and although I don’t really engage with the whole blowing stuff up thing, from a technological point of view it’s a stunning piece of kit.

If you are like me and try to avoid older simulators because they feel dated, give this a try. It sure helps to freshen up the FS2002/2004 scene with relative ease. Thanks to this, you can make it feel much more engaging to interact with from the pilots point of view.
