Microsoft Flight Simulator might be all about civilian planes, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a place for the cooler stuff – like fighter jets. Now, there’s a new military aircraft available for MFS. I’m talking about the Aermacchi MB-399 jet trainer, which you might recognize as it’s used by the Frecce Tricolori military aerobatic team.
The plane you see above can be purchased from the SimMarket for €24.40 including VAT in Europe. For that price, you’ll get the plane itself, along with plenty of liveries, including those that represent the UAE, Argentina, Malaysia, and – naturally – Italy. We also have a couple of videos showing it in action embedded below, but for those of you in the U.S., it’s probably not the most important news that I’m bring you today.
IndiaFoxtEcho – the folks behind the Aermacchi MB-399 – aren’t the only ones designing military aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator. DC Designs is working on something you might recognize: The F-15 Fighter Jet. As of now, there’s no official release date for the F-15, or a price, but DC Designs says that it should take at least a month or two to get everything working correctly.
The images you see in the Facebook post embedded above aren’t final and are subject to change as PBR (physically based rendering) hasn’t been implemented yet. I suppose that little fact makes the images even more impressive as it’s going to get even better. Either way, it looks like Military jets are going to be a decent part of MFS going forward, and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us.
