BAE Systems Hawk T2

Apologies if this isn’t the place for this… It’s more so that I’m asking if anyone knows of one in development? I know the T1 is in development, and I know there’s a T-45C, but in this (and DCS) I can’t find any evidence of a T2 in the works.

I like old-school stuff as much as the next person, but I also love more modern stuff so I’m suprised nobody that I can see seems to want this!?

This isn’t like 20 years ago, when you coukd dimply mod the cockpit files a little to get a different cockpit. 3D Cockpit and systems design is very time-consuming and complex in MSFS, so switching out a complete cockpit is probably more work than keeping a cockpit and changing the plane around it.

Currently the only plane I know that is available with glass cockpit AND steam gauges, is the C172.

So I can’t imagine a T2 coming around any time soon. The T-45 would be close enough for my taste if I were interested in a glass cockpit Hawk, even if there are several differences. Bonus: the T-45 is a carrier plane and once the Maverick DLC comes along I’m sure Dino will update it to work on carriers properly

I’ll be honest, I don’t quite understand your point here. I wasn’t referring to just switching the cockpit around if that’s what you mean?

I meant a full, from-scratch, build of a Hawk T2. And I know that it’s definitely very time-consuming and expensive, I’m just curious to know if there is anyone trying to do this, and if not, why. I would have thought more people were interested in an advanced trainer like this, and being British myself I just think it would be awesome to simulate flying my home country’s Air Force Jet Trainer.

Also absolutely the T-45 is enough for me too, I think it’s a great plane and from what I can tell, it’s been implemented very well into the sim. I’m just looking for options, and to be honest I’m just picky about aesthetics. I love the Hawk T1 shape, but I prefer the T2 :man_shrugging:t2:

There were rumours about Iris doing a T2 for P3D a few years back but it never eventuated and I think his current MSFS project is something like the PC9.

I’d be shocked if there’s a market for a Hawk T2 with the T1 and T-45 available. If it happens, I would guess it’ll be freeware, or a few years down the road when the SDK is richer and it makes sense to do a new generation add-on.

Or in DCS, where you could hang weapons off it and use it like intended. :slight_smile: Since the Razbam Hawk I paid for his now useless.

If I may interject, I think his point is that since making a T2 would be a non-trivial amount of work for a developer (even one of the developers who made the T1 or T-45C), and the market of those who would want a T2 and aren’t already satisfied with a T1 or T-45C is probably very small, it’s unlikely a developer would think it worthwhile to make one.

I thought Milviz was doing one?

Yeah that makes sense.

Is the Razbam one the T1 from a few years back that died off and was pulled from the sim?

Okay, that’s fair enough then. Still a shame though!

I’ve just checked their site, can’t see anything about a T2. I don’t remember the developer, but there is a T1 being done for sure.

As a regular visitor to RAF Valley and the Mach Loop as it’s nearby I’d love a T2 Hawk in the Sim…but I’m afraid I’ll be waiting a long time if it ever happens!

Jealous! I feel like it’s more likely to come to DCS at this point.

Looks like a freeware one is coming very soon but you will need to own both the Hawk T1 by Just Flight and the T45 Goshawk by IndiaFoxtEcho for it to work
