Description: Iíve been enjoying this add-on for MSFS (there is also a CFS-3 version) for a year now, so I thought it was worthy of a review.


I downloaded the 22MB package from the Lago web site for Ä 24, 99. This included both the IDS and Recce versions and I counted no less than 10 liveries. Lago also provide an excellent User Manual which describes everything from cockpit instruments and systems through to in-flight refuelling.


External model, textures and animations (swing-wings, retractable refuelling probe, etc) are of a high standard. Flight dynamics are good, although the model appears to be over powered. Handling is good, although I found the circuit/refuelling easier with wing sweep/flaps in manual mode due to pitch changes around the swing speeds.


The 2D and 3D cockpits are of an extremely high standard. It is even possible to simulate Terrain Following Radar with the default FS terrain mesh using the autopilot. I did find the HUD quite hard to read against certain backgrounds (there are two brightness settings), but this is a small point.


This was the first add-on in which I ever tried air-to-air refuelling, however Lagoís Tornado in-flight refuelling has probably been surpassed by what you can do in the Lock On combat simulation. With Lagoís you can only hook up with the VC-10 hose-and-drogue combination whilst flying in and easterly or westerly direction, which might not be the way that you want to go. But itís worth doing anyway just for the sake of doing it and having your pilots chat on R/T with the appropriate accent (German, British or Italian) is a nice touch. FPS was good throughout.


So, even though this is not this yearís model, it is definitely a buy. Get yourself this model and try air-to-air refuelling or just go and chase those AI aircraft, but donít get too close as Lago have included some fairly impressive damage modelling!

Pros: Everything
Cons: Notta

The one thing I didn't like about it was that it is barely supersonic, but, it pretty much matches the F-16 for everything but the speed.

Pros: Wing Sweep, Liveries, Flight Dynamics, Flight Manual, Great Animations
Cons: Add-on scenery is of low quality, but does include hangers.

This product is great. It has wing sweep which does actually affect the flexibility of the plane. It also has many liveries including R.A.F modern. It has an incredibly fast rate of climb and. Chasing other aircraft is great. At night, with lights on and afterburners it makes for the ultimate screenshot oppurtunity. When you open the cockpit door the pilots even take their oxygen masks. One problem with it is that the addon scenery is not great. ATC is poor aswell as the plane is always refered to as AIR FORCE.
