Flight Simulator X
(SP2/X-Pack/Gold & Steam Edition*)
*Steam Edition support requires TacPack.
Please see system requirements below for important
X is the most detailed and accurate simulation of a combat aircraft
ever developed for
Microsoft Flight Simulator.
The Superbug is the culmination of almost 10 years of work dating
back to FS2004, and
continues to be supported with frequent releases. 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
FSX. The flight control system is not
a "fly-by-wire-like" CAS, it's a completely dynamic, fully control-law-dependent
proportional system driving a single (ordinance independent)
neutrally-statically-stable base flight model. The FBW system
extends to 100% custom autopilot and flight director functions.
State of the Art Graphics:
The FSX version of the Superbug takes all of the fantastic
innovations we developed for FS2004 to a new level of graphic
nirvana. 40 liveries with squadrons from every Carrier Wing in the
US Navy are represented using detailed sets of maps with FSX native
materials including specular and bump maps. Thanks to efficient
modeling techniques from life-long real-time modeling pros, detail
down to individual wires and bolts can be enjoyed while still
maintaining extremely high frame rates. For those who own the
TacPack for FSX, the already feature-rich
Superbug is expanded even more, with hundreds of additional features
and enhancements ranging from working combat systems to enhanced
Realism: 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 front-line strike fighter. Systems
ranging from functional tactical weapons and sensors, to dedicated
fuel, hydraulic, electrical and ECS simulations designed [strictly]
based on the U.S. Navy's NATOPS flight manuals for the
aircraft. Everything from the working and accurate radar, to the
early warning and navigation systems are meticulously recreated in
extreme detail and uncompromising fidelity.
Configuration Manager (ACM): The Superbug
includes a very powerful external application referred to as
the ACM, which may be used to manage aircraft systems
and simulation preferences. The ACM provides functions to
maintain and edit saved loadouts (weapon sets), program the
Mission Unit (MU), set initial fuel loads, and even arm
failures. Aircraft preferences are also available for
everything from avionic to graphic options. Finally, the ACM
can gather and export vital logging information about the
state of the Superbug and the simulation in case help is
needed diagnosing a support issue.
Powered: For those who also own the
TacPack for FSX, the Superbug
will have vastly expanded capabilities, including live A/A
and A/G combat systems, FLIR video, NVG video, AI object spawning and much
much more. Even the external and internal models have been
completely overhauled for the TacPack-powered version. 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

Rich History with Continual
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."
