Captain Sim Releases C-130 Captain Exterior for MSFS

Captain Sim has released a brand new product for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The C-130 Captain Exterior is a 3D model of the aircraft type. There’s no virtual cockpit and only comes with a virtual cabin and stock functionality with HUD instruments.

The product page from Captain Sim makes it very clear that simmers will have to fly the aircraft without a virtual cockpit and will need to rely on other in-sim instruments. However, the outside of the plane is modelled with high quality texturing and realistic animations. Six liveries are included with the product.

Released 10-days after April 1st, Captain Sim hopes that people will want a C-130 for Microsoft Flight Simulator. You can buy your very own copy from Captain sim for $14.99.
