FS2004 (FSX compatible) single seat Mirage G8, complete package totally reworked, with full moving parts, animations, custom panel and a full virtual cockpit. By Patrice Grange, July 2008.
This is a total rework of my former Mirage G8 released 1 year ago. Model completely renewed to be more realistic and accurate, new textures, new animations (ejection, flaps, pilot ladder, air intake cones, opening trapdoors in the fuselage to have visibility on the engines, ...), realistic Matra missiles, and - last but not least - addition of a complete virtual cockpit.
The Dassault Mirage G8 was a twin engine fighter with variable sweep wings ("swing wings"), a very singular design for a Dassault aircraft. The Mirage G8 flew for the first time on May 8th, 1971, and demonstrated immediately an impressive level of performance, reaching Mach 2.04 during its 4th flight ... The G8 was one of the guest stars during Paris Air Show in 1971. Unfortunately, only two prototypes were built (1 two seats and 1 single seat, this one) before the decision to stop the program because of its cost and complexity ...
The model has full moving parts and animations (control surfaces, wings, gear, spoilers, flaps, canopy, pilot ladder, ejection, fuselage trapdoors, air intake cones, steering wheels, landing lights, ...), an original custom 2D panel (an original bitmap by me) and a full VC. Designed by Patrice Grange.
