The F-5E Tiger II is designed to provide a top-quality aircraft that is highly detailed yet less demanding to fly than today's most complex procedural simulators.

The package sports 17 paint schemes and has been coded using native Microsoft Flight Simulator animations, such as scratched canopy and reflective glass effects, aerodynamic sounds and an extendable oleo gear leg. It also takes advantage of the modern aerodynamics system with the ability to provoke departure spins.

The high-fidelity virtual cockpit features an accurately modelled ejector seat, controls and detailed textures. All instruments are constructed in 3D with smooth animations, display screens based on real aircraft and reflective rear-view mirrors. Crew figures are also modelled with fully customisable helmets, names, flight suit patches and faces.

Aircraft features user-controlled ordnance via the simulator payload manager, allowing for live mounting of weapons on hardpoints with active weight increase (weapons are not included in the version on the MSFS Marketplace).

Other highlights include a functional multiplayer-compatible radar, a full operations manual and virtual-reality compatibility. The package is available on Just Flight's website for £17.99. Please note that the package is not compatible with the Xbox edition of Microsoft Flight Simulator.
