Eurofighter Typhoon
– BEST FREEWHARE 2014 –
The Eurofighter Typhoon is a modern military aircraft which needs no introduction! His manoeuvrability is outstanding in every way and can happily compete with the famous F22 in a dogfight, despite the absence of thrust vectoring. This X-Plane model attempts to capture the same feeling as the real aircraft, as you will get a sense of what it's like to experience 9-G!

The exterior model is based and adapted to a low poly object which has texturing to rival frame-rate heavy models.
The interior cockpit is also low poly, which ensures basic functionality and no FPS drop during important phases of flight.

Now the flightmodel: I think is the best you can get from this type of aircraft (very unstable configuration with high performances) running in X-Plane without plugin. What you will fly is simply the best tuning of PlaneMaker parameters and Airfoils.

Expecially for Airfoils was fundamental the contribution of
Daniele Capizzi, who made possible to customize Airfoil polars throught his magic Excel spreadsheet. By arranging few keypoints for each airfoil coefficient (cl, cd, cm) the spreadsheet instantly soft interpolate the whole polar!

X-Plane features:
– Reasonable flightmodel
– Nice lowpoly 3D exterior model with normal maps
– Nice lowpoly 3D cockpit with basic flight functionality and openable canopy
– Custom sounds
– Autopilot and FMS
– Weapons functions
– Tail hook for carrier landing
– Brake chute
