For full details, click on Read More. IRIS Flight Simulation Software brings you their latest aircraft, the Royal Air Force F-4 Phantom FGR.2. The Phantom continues the range of FS2004 only products from IRIS and will be compatible with Microsoft Flight Simulator X due out later in the year.

Thanks to the lead product researcher Steve Holland, who was a member of 56 Squadron during the reign of the almighty 'Toom', the Phantom features enhanced XML coding within the aircraft models to accurately replicate the inner workings of the aircraft. The virtual cockpit is by far the best to date; in both detail and artwork this new cockpit outshines its predecessors and features working switches, radios, levers and other effects and silky smooth gauge refresh rates on most systems.

The exterior model has also retained their trademark quality which has been built from the established range of aircraft, and the product features a number of different models as has come to be expected of an IRIS product.

Iris has once again had the privilege to employ the sound genius of Christoffer Petersen who has provided some excellent sounds for the Phantom recorded from the real deal which will have you playing with that volume control!

Iris's resident artists have provided a total of twenty of the popular color schemes worn by the FGR.2 during its service from the well known to the unique ones not seen regularly.
