Maybe one of the most anticipated fighter jets for Microsoft Flight Simulator appears to be ever closer to release in the latest preview trailer. Posted over on the Heatblur Simulations YouTube channel, the mighty F-14 Tomcat is shown off in amazing detail with some Top Gun jokes here and there, giving us a big glimpse of what we can expect once this bird finally lands in MSFS.
The F-14 Tomcat has been famously created by Heatblur Simulations for DCS, and with the help of IndiaFoxtEcho the aircraft is making its way to Microsoft Flight Simulator. Although a status update was not shared by the team, the supersonic aircraft appears rather complete. It appears to sport weaponry, and although we’ve previously understood these are aesthetic only, it’s still a nice touch that adds to the immersion. The plane also features a high amount of detail and effects, such as vapor cone and trails and high quality modelling and textures. Those familiar with the F-14 for DCS might be able to make out the voice of Jester, Heatblur’s virtual RIO in the F-14, although it’s not clear if Jester will also make its way to MSFS.
We’ll keep you up-to-date on Heatblur and IndiaFoxtEcho’s efforts to bring this truly classic fighter jet to MSFS.
