Editorial

One thing I do love to do when using a flight simulator is hop into the cockpit of an aircraft that I’ve never had the pleasure of flying before. Although most of my flights take place in smaller aircraft like seaplanes and the like (I like simplicity!) I do enjoy using something a bit more dynamic than your average civilian aircraft. For any time I want that extra zest and power, I decide to go with a single-seater military aircraft such as the Boeing EA-18G Growler.

This is a lovely aircraft that comes with a stunning design and an incredibly interesting layout, but it also comes with the sheer depth and strength that you might expect to come from something like this.

In fact, this aircraft is based on the Star Warriors equivalent which adds another nice little layer of authenticity to the whole thing, bringing it together in rather outstanding fashion. Indeed, it’s equipped with various jamming equipment for a start – countermeasures so that you can dodge those incoming missiles! – and gives you plenty of speed, ferocity and overall firepower to have fun with across the board. It’s a unique and engaging aircraft that really does its best to capture the look and feel of something so interesting and engaging.

Another big plus point is the work that the team done with the dynamics of the flight – it more or less feels the way that it should. I compared the stats and power of the aircraft with the real-life model and it’s about as close as you are likely to get without going over the top. For this reason, this aircraft can be an absolute joy to fly as it has all of the strengths and quirks of the real thing, making it a brutally powerful piece of machinery to fly around in.

Likewise, it looks outstanding – this matches the depth of the dynamics, at least. The color and the shine of the aircraft is simply outstanding, as it manages to capture that amazing depth and precision that more or less any good aircraft manages to carry these days. As far as the design and the elements of the aircraft that you most want to see being put into place goes, this really does all that it can to give you total control over this nimble yet incredibly powerful aircraft.

Not everything you fly in FS2004 will feel super realistic but this is the best attempt at a Growler I’ve ever seen. It might be the first time I’ve tried one out but from now on I’ll certainly by Growling a whole lot more!

The outside of the is plane looks great. But the cockpit seemed to be something from a cessna which messed up the whole flying experience. Except for the cockpit the plane was really nice.
