F-14 Mini Development Update


Recommended Posts

There's no rest for the wicked! While we're working hard to iron out Viggen launch issues and add a lot of new exciting content and features to that aircraft, we're also working very hard on every aspect of the F-14, from the flight model, to the deep subsystems, and now finally we're taking our first big steps into the weapon systems.


The flight model is rapidly nearing full completion, with current focus being on matching our engine models to the available data.

We'll be highlighting all of these features in depth as we move along. :)


Working with museums and experts around the world is one of the most important parts of the development process.

For DCS: F-14, we've been lucky to enjoy the hospitality of the Tulsa air and Space Center and Hickory Aviation Museum! We are incredibly grateful to be able to spend some time in real F-14 airframes to make sure we really nail every aspect of our simulation.


Next month we're wrapping up our final F-14 research trip at Hickory, NC, who are currently working on restoring an F-105 Thunderchief. You can help us say thank you and expand on our modest contribution here: https://www.gofundme.com/2npjqn6s


Enjoy some quick shots below. There's plenty more to come! :)

I hate to be the negative guy, but is it really going to smoke like a Rhino? The whole thing is very realistic except for that crucial detail!!!


I'm gonna go out on a limb and say those are contrails not " smoke".
