Military aircraft fans will want to have a close look at the development of this new aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Just Flight have just announced that their next in-house military aircraft project is intended to be the classic Tornado low-level strike fighter. This is what we know so far!
Just Flight appear to be working their way through the RAF aircraft inventory as they announce their next big project. Following on from their well received Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer comes the Tornado GR1.
The GR1 was part of the Tornado IDS (interdictor/strike) and was primarily aimed at conducting low level strike missions in Europe. The GR1 was never used in this role, however, it did see service in a number of other conflicts including during Desert Storm in 1991, the Kosovo campaign in 1999 and over Iraq and Afghanistan in the 2000s. The GR1 was later modified into the more advanced and just recently retired GR4.
Just Flight’s recreation of this aircraft is, according to their announcement note on Facebook, being called ‘study level’ so expect a high degree of system fidelity to go along with this. They have also noted that the aircraft will make use of 8K resolution textures so it should look sharp too.
Several screenshots have been released and Just Flight is expecting to update their in-development section of their website soon with more images and more details in the coming weeks and months.
Tornado makes two!
Just Flight is the second developer to throw their hat into the ring for developing a Tornado with IndiaFoxtEcho also announcing in May that they were working on a Tornado as well. Two Tornado options should make for plenty who are fans of the aircraft.
Now… if we could just convince someone to do a DCS World version…
