FS2004 / FSX (SP2 acceleration compatible) Nord Aviation 1500 Griffon 2, complete package, fully reworked with an historical VC and photoreal textures, by Patrice Grange.
The Nord 1500 Griffon was the prototype of a dual turbojet-ramjet powered fighter designed and built by French aircraft manufacturer Nord Aviation (SNCAN) during the fifties. The prototype first flew on 20 September 1955 (Griffon 1) and this one, the second aircraft (Griffon 2) flew on 23 January 1957. The Griffon reached the speed of Mach 2.19 (2300 km/h) in 1958. However, technical difficulties in developing an operationally reliable ramjet led to the cancellation in 1959 of the Griffon program to the benefit of Dassault Aviation's Mirage III ...
The model has full moving parts (control surfaces, gears, engine inlet and compressor, spoilers, canopy, dragchute, weapons, ladder, ...) + a custom panel compatible with FS2004 and FSX + a VC + reworked textures with photoreal elements taken from the real plane.
