features of the FSX version, as well as a few new tricks, including
P3D native "IR" shaders and 2D popup support for FLIR functions. VRS intends to grow with P3D

TacPack Powered F-14 Tomcat X!
posted Dec 4th, 2014
has just released their amazing
F-14 Tomcat X! Having been in development for 3-years,
this promises to be one of the most comprehensive military
aircraft packages yet released. Tomcat X features include
the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk aircraft carrier, supporting AI
aircraft, and much much more. Best of all, the Tomcat X is a
Powered* aircraft, which means users who own the TacPack will
also be able to utilize live weapon systems and other
TacPack-exclusive features built into the Tomcat.
"The Aerosoft F-14 X was designed with two principle
objectives. The first was to create an authentic and
detailed representation about what it was like to fly the
early model F-14`s and the refinements made over the first
20 years of the airframe`s service life. The second was to
create an accessible simulation for all users. While many of
the advanced systems will require you to RTFM to operate
effectively, anyone can be in the air within seconds of
loading the sim (well maybe a little longer if you`re
setting up a carrier launch). While failure logic, such as
engine compressor stalls are included, they will not become
active and take out an engine unless you enable the
- Users who own
TacPack will be able launch payloads including the
F-14's potent beyond visual range capabilities*
- TV Camera set (TCS) will focus on any radar locked
target and enable visual target identification at a
range of 10nm
- Too many features to list here!
|Iris TacPack Powered A-10A "Warthog Driver II"
posted February 28th, 2014
Iris Simulations, today released their ground-breaking
A-10A "Warthog Driver II" - TacPack Edition! The Iris
A-10A marks the very first third-party commercial
product utilizing VRS TacPack
technology, and marks the first of many such products that
are either planned or in active development!
“The Hog is Back!” As promised during 2013,
we have revamped the Airforce Series Warthog and
added integration with Vertical Reality
Simulations TacPack product. We feel that the
A-10 is the perfect accompanying product for the
VRS Superbug and the wide variety of ground
stores and the massive GAU-8 Avenger cannon make
it a powerful ground attack aircraft!
would like to offer our most sincere
congratulations to David, Rob, and the rest of
the Iris team for updating this marvelous
machine with TacPack compatibility! We would
also like to thank Iris for standing by us,
supporting us, and sharing our dream of bringing
our small community closer together through
cooperation and collaboration. Things can only
get better from here!
