I come in peace! I work at a company that makes fighter jets so I’m all in, but I’ve been wondering about this for a while now and I’m curious to get your input.
As the title suggest I’m a bit confused about all these fighter jets being released for MSFS, including the upcoming Hawk that looks absolutely beautiful. I am actually a bit tempted to buy it when it’s released, but then I ask my self the question I’m about to ask you. What am I supposed to do with it once the first excitement has passed, which may take anywhere between 2-20 flights.
It’s not particularly good for IFR and it’s probably a bit too fast for doing any sort of VFR sightseeing. The armament is just eye candy and if I want to do any kind of tactical flying I have DCS. And I can’t think of any kind of Neofly/OnAir mission where a Hawk would be the platform of choice.
So for those of you that have bought a fighter mod and/or is planning on buying the Hawk, what is your motivation? What kind of flying do you do with them? Or are they collecting virtual dust in your community folder?
