is the most detailed and accurate simulation of a combat aircraft
ever developed for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The Superbug is the
culmination of almost 6 years of work, and continues to be enhanced
every release. From avionics to weapon systems, if it's in the real
aircraft, it's probably in this simulation!
The Superbug, is the first
true 3-axis fly-by-wire combat aircraft designed for
Microsoft Flight Simulator. The flight control system is not
"fly-by-wire-like", it's a dynamic, fully control-law-dependent
proportional control system driving a single (ordinance independent)
neutrally-statically-stable base flight model. The FBW system
extends to 100% custom autopilot functions.
The FSX version of the Superbug takes all of the
fantastic innovations we developed for FS2004 to a new level of
graphic nirvana. The 2D and VC models were reworked and re-textured
with high resolution FSX native materials including detailed
specular and bump maps. Draw calls were reduced by approximately
20%, and new skinned-mesh animations were added. Effects for missile
flyout were introduced that allow plumes and smoke trails. New
g-induced and mach-based vapor effects, afterburners, fresnel-based
lighting, and a slew of other improvements round out this incredible
new FSX package.
Crafted by a small, dedicated team of developers who
also happen to be engineers in real life, the Superbug seeks to
provide what we believe is by far the most comprehensive overall
simulation of ANY combat aircraft ever created for the Flight
Simulator franchise. VRS has created a truly remarkable and faithful
reproduction of the U.S. Navy's newest strike fighter. Systems
ranging from tactical (functioning weapons and sensors) to
dedicated, custom fuel, hydraulic and ECS simulation designed
[strictly] based on the U.S. Navy's NATOPS flight manuals for this
aircraft. Everything from the working and accurate radar, to the
early warning and navigation systems are meticulously recreated in
extreme detail and fidelity.
Superbug is also a fully TacPack-Powered
aircraft, meaning Superbug owners who also own the
will have vastly expanded cababilities, including live weapon
combat systems, FLIR video, NVG video, AI object spawning and much
much more. Your aircraft can destroy (or cripple) your adversaries,
and you yourself can become the prey, taking partial or critical
damage. Note that only multi-player users who own the TacPack (and
have it enabled) will be vulnerable to TacPack systems. For
more information about the TacPack and all it offers, please refer
TacPack product page.
The Superbug is the recipient of multiple awards including
Avsim Gold Star (both versions),
Magazine's Platinum award, and the
2011 SimFlight Award for Best Military Aircraft. These are the
highest review awards available in their respective mediums. If
you've tried military aircraft for MSFS before, and they've left a
bad taste in your mouth, give the Superbug a try and see why VRS has
been called "The PMDG/Level-D of military addons."
