Just Flight Tornado F3 for P3D Released

Developer Just Flight has released the Tornado F3 for Prepar3D v4 and Prepar3D v5. Developed by the same team which created the Hawk T1/A Advanced Trailer, the Vulcan and also the Tornado GR1, this new product adds the iconic military aircraft to the simulator.

The Tornado F3 is a twin-seat interceptor version of the Panavia Tornado. Being equipped with the Foxhunter multi-mode track-while-scan, pulse doppler air-intercept radar to detect and target hostile, the aircraft is versatile in any weather condition. The aircraft proved popular with nearly 200 of the type build since it was introduced in 1979.

As with other Just Flight aircraft, the Tornado F3 comes with 4K texturing, realistic systems, a fully 3D cockpit and custom-coded systems and avionics. In the detailed feature list, the team said the cockpit features a realistic head-up0display, functioning navigator displays and also interactive checklists for each phase of flight. The aircraft also comes with detailed animations, modelling and PBR texture work throughout. Further to the detailed modelling, Just Flight has included custom-coded fuel and electrical systems and avionics.

If flying this iconic fighter jet is for you, then you can buy it from Just Flight’s website for £32.99.

Features

MODEL

  • Reverse buckets, in-flight refuelling probe and arrestor hook
  • Canopy and canopy support strut
  • Detailed pilots with visors and masks
  • Accurately animated control surfaces including tailerons, flaps, slats, spoilers and airbrakes
  • Range of payload options, selectable via a custom 2D panel:
    – Skyflash – a medium-range semi-active radar homing air-to-air missile
    – AMRAAM (Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile)
    – ASRAAM (Advanced Short Range Air-to-Air Missile)
    – PHIMAT pod – a chaff dispensing pod (with chaff effect)

    – AIM-9 Sidewinder – a short-range air-to-air missile
    – 1500L drop tank
    – 2500L drop tank
  • Ground equipment, including crew ladder, ground power unit, flags and covers
  • Physically Based Rendering (PBR) materials produce realistic metallic, plastic and glass surfaces (requires P3D v4.4 and above)
  • 4096×4096 textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity
  • Bump and specular mapping used throughout the aircraft to produce a truly 3D feel

COCKPIT

  • Authentic dimmable night lighting system in P3D v5. Dimmable electro-luminescent and gauge backlighting for P3D v4 users, with on/off floodlighting
  • A truly 3D virtual cockpit right down to the cables and piping – every instrument is constructed fully in 3D with smooth animations
  • Tactical radar system that allows AI aircraft to be tracked and targeted. Simulated IR lock-ons and weapon selection
  • Realistic head-up display (HUD) including different weapon modes. AI targets will be visually displayed in the HUD to guide you to your target!
  • Pilot’s Electronic Head-Down Display (EHDD) with its own targeting radar display and the ability to switch between a repeat of either of the navigator’s TV displays
  • Radar Homing and Warning Receiver (RHWR) display with the ability to display either AI aircraft and ground targets or both
  • Functioning navigator displays – select between radar modes, make target selections, view information regarding flight plans and the active route, configure fuel and more
  • Pilot and navigator positions included
  • Highly detailed ejection seat
  • Authentic autopilot with track, heading, altitude, radar height hold and speed hold modes
  • Functional CSAS and SPILS systems
  • Built-in test equipment (BITE) for a variety of systems
  • Functioning oxygen regulator system with realistic consumption based on altitude – watch the oxygen quantity drop with usage!
  • Interactive checklists for every stage of flight
  • Realistic V/UHF, TACAN and ILS radio units
  • Aircraft configuration system that will allow you to choose between ‘cold & dark’, or ready for take-off
  • Accurately modelled and animated canopy with handles and strut, functioning jack release and jettison
  • Fully functioning magnetic indicators, warning lights and push-to-test buttons
