The English Electric Lightning was designed in the late 1950s as an interceptor. This class of aircraft had to have great speed and even better climb speed to intercept Russian bombers before they could reach their targets. The Lightning is certainly fast and was in fact the first aircraft that could 'supercruise', meaning that it could fly at supersonic speeds without the use of afterburner.

The F.3 version in this add-on is not an easy aircraft to fly - it’s complex and full of systems you have to manage without the aid of modern electronics. Landing especially is hard as the landing speed is awfully high and there are many things you have to check.

  • Nine liveries (5; 11; 29; 56; 74; 92; 111; 56 (Firebirds) and LTF Squadrons)

  • Advanced flight dynamics
  • Choice of Firestreak or Redtop missiles (or none)
  • Cockpit ladder and array of ground equipment
  • Customised taxi lights
  • Multi-zoned dimmable cockpit lighting
  • More realistic brake chute thanks to the use of additional coding
  • Realistic in-flight refuelling rate (refuelling can take place when set parameters are reached, to simplify the task for the less experienced pilot)
  • Wing to wing fuel transfer
  • Aerosoft Sound Module that adds sound to switches, controls and events for a more immersive environment. Engine sounds recorded during ground runs at the LPG (Lightning Preservation Group)
