DC Designs has further addressed the development of their F-14A Tomcat. Super excited for this beast, which will include the A and B models.
Edit: the Tomcats have been released!
… “As many of you probably know, there were three Tomcats; the A, with its temperamental engines, raw handling and famous colour schemes; the B, with the upgraded engines that allowed it to turn-and-burn with any other fighter in the skies; and the D, which was basically a B with upgraded avionics and radar. This project will focus on the A and B models, because apart from the engines they were basically identical, which is easier on me after the intense pressure of the four-aircraft F-15 package. The focus here will be on delivering the most visually realistic F-14 yet seen in Microsoft’s Flight Simulator franchise, coupled with the DC Designs “way” of moderate systems detail and emphasis on handling and fun. With all I’ve learned from the Eagles’ development cycle, I’m confident I can now deliver an awesome F-14 Tomcat package right out of the gate, and anyway, I need to be doing it better, and cleaner, than the other guy.”…
