Vertical Reality Simulations(VRS) has released TacPack and Superbug products with support for Prepar3D® Academic. These are discrete product lines from the legacy FSX versions, with no cross-compatibility.
TacPack for Prepar3D® Academic is a true single and multi-player tactical combat engine for Prepar3D Academic. With TacPack, weapons no longer need to be benign figments of your imagination; Prepar3D Academic becomes a live battle space with realistically modeled weapons, countermeasures, and early warning systems. Your aircraft can destroy (or cripple) your adversaries, and you yourself can become the prey, taking partial or critical damage. TacPack has already garnered the support of many third party developers including Aerosoft, Iris Simulations, Metal2Mesh, Milviz, Razbam, Dina Cattaneo, and more. Look for more and more TacPack-powered aircraft to become available as our list of developer partners grows.
Superbug for Prepar3D® Academic is a professional-level, fully combat capable F/A-18E aircraft simulation. The Superbug and required TacPack combat system, work together to bring dedicated aerial combat and ground attack capability to life for the first time in Prepar3D Academic.
