Remembers me of the many hours I spent on the early 90s Tornado sim (Digital Integration) with extension Desert Storm.  You've only got to trust the ground radar, specially at night !

I've never owned such an aircraft, it does look very nice.

 

But.......... what do you do with it once you've got the hang of it?

Are there mission packs out there where you go and use your new found skill and weaponry?

I would guess it would be like any other sim flying we do, research training flights or missions made by the pilots that have flown it in real life and replicate it in the sim. Or if you are like me, just blast down valleys as fast as I can go. :D

Brett, if you were the pilot it would be a Tornado GRRRR1, ready for ooops! :D

Haha. ^_^ GRRRRRR, the government would never hire me to fly it after checking my crash record. Those things fly so fast my brain can't keep up with it. :D

I've never done that Brett.   All my flying has been done inside a client.  Mostly commercial on FSE and the odd flight or two in VAfs.   Whole new ball game.   Betya somebodies written military missions?

I believe they are bring out TacPac for Tornado so you can go and blow stuff up, air to ground or air to air just like you can with the VRS Superbug (F18)

They say they are to bring out a TacPac upgrade, but I don't think I will be getting it my self.  For me it is all about flying the aircraft, blowing stuff up I leave to the Playstation gamers.

 

 

You can use TacPac with Dino Cattaneo's F35 Lightning 2 as well.

Simulation wise I think TacPac would be good not just to blow things up but to learn about the weapons systems involved in an aircraft and their accuracy based on delivery. 2cents for the day. :)

Good point Brett.  Maybe I will think again about TacPac.  It is quite expensive though.
