After years of waiting and teasing, Milviz has finally released their T-38C Talon, which has been flown and tested by the U.S. Air Force’s T-38C instructor pilots!
The T-38 Talon is quite possibly one of the most iconic aircraft in the USAF’s fleet. The Talon carries the unique distinction of being the trainer aircraft for every fighter pilot trained in the last five decades, meaning every current (or past) USAF fighter jock has T-38 time logged in their logbook.
The -C upgrade commenced in 2002 after the Air Force decided to upgrade the current Talon fleet rather than commission a brand new aircraft entirely. When compared to the older, steam gauge T-38A (which Milviz also has a rendition of), the T-38C introduces a glass cockpit to the aircraft, as well as a HUD, GPS and INS systems, TCAS, as well as a propulsion modification aimed at increasing low-altitude engine thrust. Needless to say, the T-38C is almost a new aircraft entirely when compared to its older brethren.
