MiG-21 Bis Fishbed Standard Edition for P3D
The MiG-21Bis (NATO reporting name: "Fishbed") is a supersonic front-line jet fighter and interceptor aircraft, designed by the Mikoyan-Gurevich Design Bureau in the Soviet Union. Due to its simplicity of design, ease of mastering the piloting technique and excellent indicators of speed and maneuverability, the Mig-21 is widely used in the world.
The MiG-21 "Fishbed" is:
Here's what you get!
Collectible model of the LEGENDARY MiG-21Bis created with an unprecedented level of detail and realism.
A package of pre-compiled photoshop files (.PSD) will be made available after release for easy community livery creation and repainting.
The GKS: MiG-21 comes with a 6 degrees-of-freedom, interactive, clickable cockpit. Detailed meshwork and textures provide the end-user with an immersive cockpit flying experience. P3D also offers full Oculus Rift support, and the MiG-21 cockpit is no exception.
To simplify the mastering of the cockpit and its controls, tooltips are provided to the end user in both English and Russian languages.
The cockpit, all text and artwork, has been fully translated from the original Russian labeling to English. Control over which cockpit language you'd like to use is achieved by a setting in the options menu.
MiG-21 is designed to from the ground up to faithfully recreate and simulate all interior avionics to their fullest extent. No effort has been spared in making this one of the most complex and accurate flight simulation aircraft available, which is designed to meet the Advanced Systems Modelling ("ASM") criteria set forth by Eagle Dynamics.
MiG-21 simulates all major and minor avionics and system components found in the Fishbed-N, including, but not limited to:
The flight model is heavily component based, and simulates aerodynamic forces acting upon each component of the aircraft in real-time. At no time during the flight envelope is the aircraft's behaviour "scripted". Tuned up to 19.000 meters, it will give you a unique experience in flying this small and agile fighter.
Learn to takeoff with small wings and a high speed, feel the RATO effect, experience non-symmetric wing load and super critical angles of slide/slip aircraft behavior and much more. Have fun experimenting and discovering the aircraft behavior in irregular flight conditions, where your engine will stall, you will loose your orientation, your weapon will detach from the aircraft and… you're gonna love it!
The flight model has been built over the course of a few years, and utmost care has been taken to ensure an authentic experience of flying the MiG-21bis, under all possible flight conditions.
MiG-21 comes with a suite of weaponry, some custom and unique to the MiG-21bis itself. As the MiG-21 evolved into a multi-role capable aircraft. The MiG-21 is capable of utilizing Air-to-Air missiles, free-falling, beam riding missiles, unguided rockets and gunpods, and more.
