Requires Dino Cattaneo's F-14B for FS2004 here. Contains new Air and Aircraft.cfg files, that will give you good control of the aircraft in the whole flight envelope. You can also land it on the carrier deck without Arrestor Cables, superspoilers or head wind, just apply parking brakes (!) while still in the air (stronger brakes don't spoil taxiing qualities). Keep 120 kts on final, up to 50% fuel, full flaps, (normal!) spoilers on, and with good vision of the deck all the time, just hit it as close to the cables as possible. There is also a new SOUND folder included, giving you a better feel of flying a thunderbird. By Ivan Kostic.

Having spent a fair amount of time travelling recently, I decided it would be good fun to mess around with the wonderful world of FS2004 again on my old tablet. At first it was a bit of a re-adjustment period but as soon as I added in some new aircraft to fly around in, it felt like home again. I decided to pick up the excellent rendition of the F-14B flight dynamics and sound pack from the network, as it fitted with the F-14B I downloaded from Dino Cattaneo.

What I found on my first impressions after flying it with the original was that with the new sounds, it felt like a whole new ball-game. I know not a lot of people bother with sound adjustments and tend to stick with their most authentic choices that they can find, but I always love it when an artist goes to that level of attention for us.

With this new package, then, it made the whole thing feel special – the new sounds will ensure that flying around in this monster really sounds the part. This is a brutal piece of tech and I would hate to come up against one in the real world, so I dread to think how terrifying it must sound in real-life if the game was giving me shivers down the spine!

I was hugely impressed with the sounds, as it really added another little bit of improvement to the whole experience, making everything seem a bit more fun than it was at the start. What I did find, though, was that when I was using this package that I was immediately drawn to the overall quality and class of the new flight dynamics. As far as making the craft easy to fly it was simply outstanding.

Now, I can take even the most stringent list of requirements for this aircraft and know that with this setup I will have it as close to the real thing as possible. All of these little changes will make sure that you can land on carrier decks without the need for Arrestor cables, and you can also deal with things like how you will land and the quality of your landing.

Instead of having to juggle you reentrance and causing havoc all around you, though, you can land like a professional with the grace of a gazelle simply by using the parking brakes. Purists might not be a fan of the landing being easier than it was in the past, but for guys like myself it’s an absolute godsend! It really does make a big difference to your overall confidence if you know that you can take off and land without wiping out half of the ship!

It’s a lot of fun to fly around with this package, and ensures that with the new dynamics you’ll feel as if you really are taking control of the mobile war machine that is the F1-4B; it’s challenging, but this makes it that little bit more rewarding.
