Good FSX bomber/reconnaissance Military Aircrafts?

Recommended Posts

Hey pilots!

 

What would you say is a good/the best military bomber or reconnaissance aircraft for fsx?

I already own the A2A B17.

 

Thanks

JustFlight Canberra PR9, JustFlight's in house team did an amazing job on this one.

Depending upon what era and how complex an aircraft you're looking for then Virtavia's XB-70 fits the bill at the lite end of the spectrum for the cheap price. You can see some screenshots of it in the flights I posted in the screenshot forum.

Thanks guys!

Era should be all post WWII. I search more for the complex sim, price doesnt matter much if sim is good. But I already expected that there is not that much out there, hoped anyone has a secret treasure. As I dont like justflight the sortiment gets very small I think.

virtavia seems to have a lot of interesting bombers but i can't say i've tried them.

 

glowingheat has a hustler and an sr-71 that also look like they might be pretty good.

 

i'd love to hear comments if anyone has tried their stuff. 

 

cheers

Ah, I didnt know Glowingheat at all. A nice blackbird would be perfect... but I am not sure about the quality of this one.

Would also like to hear if someone ownes this bird!

Oh well, It's probably going to be one of the Virtavia "lite" addons then. shame really as the JustFlight Canberra is really one of the few military study sims out there.

It was built by their in house team, it's not the usual  systems lite stuff that Aeroplane heaven churns out for them.

Hmm I dont like lite sim stuff, I think I will check out youtube and maybe get into the Canberra.

If you want a non lite military aircraft that carries a lot of bombs but isn't a bomber per se, check out the MV F-4E...  (just saying)

Wasn't aware that developers were allowed to advertise in the Avsim forums, things certainly are changing around here.

I just have seen that there is a demo! I read thru the description.

Awesome, will trie... would be nice to have more demos in FSX world, this could save some bucks. But this is the reason why there are none, in some cases ;-)

A mighty fine WW2 recon sim: Aerosoft PBY Catalina X - slow as molasses but excellently modeled flight, VC and navigation systems.

I'd hardly call it advertising when someone ASKS for advice...

Apologies for the hijack. The Glowingheat birds look rather interesting.. and would complement my XB70 rather well. Thanks for the head-up, I'll check them out.

It's OK. The visuals are dated, the systems are light and rudimentary.  But fuel management, and procedures to get up to mach 2+, make for a unique experience. She's a bear to land.  It routinely comes up for sale 50% off and at that price why not.

Pretty sure Avsim is not going to cap down on Milviz for replying to a thread for a, may I observe, on topic suggestion to try their product. Get real Glynn and Milviz, please don't stop sponsoring Avsim just because some of the posters are confrontational.

Captain Sim's B-52 and C-130 packages are nice. For Recon, there's the B707 with the AWACS addon.

Ah the captainsim C130, I already own this... but I never got it running properly. It seemed to me as if this bird was still in Alpha ^^ many not working systems, engine start doesnt work as described... do you use any mods or "secrets" to operate it? WOuld be nice to be able to fly it. I never got deep into it because it was that cheesy.
