SC Designs F-5E Tiger II Now Available on MSFS

SC Designs has released its awaited F-5E Tiger II for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The F-5E Tiger II is a lightweight, supersonic fighter aircraft developed by Northrop Corporation in the United States. It was designed as a cost-effective fighter to be used in various roles, including air superiority, ground attack, and reconnaissance. The aircraft first entered service in the early 1970s and has since been operated by numerous air forces around the world.

Some of the features for the aircraft include realistic effects and sounds, fully reflective glass, native aerodynamic sound structures, and the implementation of the ‘Modern’ aerodynamics system. This system allows for the simulation of ‘departure spins’, enhancing realism for users. Additionally, customized visibility controls for wheel chocks and covers further enrich the experience.

The cockpit of the aircraft boasts high fidelity, featuring accurately modeled ejector seats, controls, and detailed texturing. Reflective rear-view mirrors, ‘scratched canopy’ glass effects, and icing and rain effects. Crew figures in the virtual cockpit are coded to disappear when users occupy their seats, adding to the authenticity.

In terms of aircraft systems, users can expect 3D modeled dials, ADI, and other high-detail instruments that emulate the appearance of the real aircraft. Display screens offer visual layouts based on the real aircraft’s systems. The inclusion of functional multiplayer-compatible radar and customizable ordnance via the simulator Payload Manager further enhances the aircraft’s versatility and realism.

You can buy the SC Designs F-5E Tiger II from Just Flight for £17.99.
