Indiafoxtecho announces Eurofighter Typhoon as part of MSFS roadmap
The image above is a reference shot of the real aircraft and not representative of Indiafoxtecho’s product.
Hot on the heels of the F-35 release for Microsoft Flight Simulator, Indiafoxtecho is now hard at work projecting the next products to come to the simulator. The developer revealed this week what plans he has for this year and beyond, with a product roadmap that includes the already known Sukhoi Su-31 and Aermacchi M-346, but also a great novelty: the Eurofighter Typhoon!
Indiafoxtecho has been making mostly military airplanes for Microsoft Flight Simulator, and this tradition will continue for the foreseeable future. An exception to that is the Su-31, which was announced last year and will finally be released in just a few weeks, possibly in March. The Russian aerobatic airplane took longer than expected to develop, but Indiafoxtecho believes the aircraft is now closer to being finished, although some flight dynamics adjustments are still to be made.
Also expected to be out by mid-2022 is the Aermacchi M-346, also announced quite some time ago and still under active development. Indiafoxtecho says the team continues to make progress with the 3D model, animations, flight model, and avionics, but they are happy with the progress so far, looking for a release no sooner than April.
Perhaps the most exciting airplane estimated to come out of Indiafoxtecho’s factory this year is the newly announced Eurofighter Typhoon, which was suspected to be in development but is only now being formally announced. It’s being completely built from scratch to MSFS, so there’s a lot of work still to be done, and there are no images yet to share with the community. Indoafoxtecho doesn’t project a release date for the Eurofighter, but the best-case scenario would be to launch by the end of 2022.
Beyond 2022, Indiafoxtecho has even more plans for MSFS. Another very promising prospect is the F-14D Super Tomcat, currently just an experimental project to test new technologies and development techniques for MSFS. It has, for example, a super-high polygon count, which is not very friendly to today’s systems. The developers hope to use this experiment as a test-bed for future products, and it’s currently not being considered as a commercial product, although that might change in the future.
Other notable projects in Indiafoxtecho’s roadmap for MSFS are, in no particular order, the MB-326, the M-345, the A-4 Skyhawk, the E-2C Hawkeye, and the C-27J Spartan. These are in different stages of planning/development, as the team gathers more information about each model, and are not expected for the near future. As for the Mini-500 helicopter, an in-house experiment to play with custom flight models in MSFS, it’s been put on hold for the moment due to the lack of resources. So, it looks like there won’t be any MSFS helicopters from Indiafoxtecho any time soon.
In broad terms, these are Indiafoxtecho’s plans for the foreseeable future, concerning Microsoft Flight Simulator. This openness provides a clear picture of what’s coming, so simmers can start taking notes and follow the progress of their favorite aircraft. As usual, we’ll bring you any meaningful updates from Indiafoxtecho, as the developer moves ahead with these plans and we start seeing new images and release details for every new product. Stay tuned!
What about the F-5 in the first picture? Would definitely prefer that to the Eurofighter 🙂
What if you can “connect” you`re MSFS 2020 to DCS and fly the mission for “real” and with a real commitment to in hours and interrest in flying and connect to Arma 3 series simulator and acctually fly for real and can only stay there in the ops zone for a limited time? A cool,new way to present how acctual flying works-NOTAMS and such will mean what they mean in real flying-fly over a industrial plant -and you will be escorted by AI Military Jets !
please please Indiafoxtecho can you give us a F-18 BUT look as good as THE Asobo F-18 or better BUT!!! it must go at least 1180mph and at least 922mph at sea level, please everyone loves this plane buts just so sluggish and just bad, a twin seat version would be epic just like from the movie Behind enemy lines 😉 hope this can be done.
Sounds nice, but in the end the eurofighter from heatblur will show How it’s Done.
Sadly the levels of the Military Planes in Msfs is atm very low. Playing dcs and Msfs , dcs is in flightdynamics far beyond msfs, Even the helicopter Physics compared to the h145 physics .
But for A CASUAL flight , msfs military Planes work. Btw asosbo f18 compared to dcs f18, worlds.
A-4 Skyhawk please first and i hope its in red like the DCS version, and Top Gun Version livey
A-4 Skyhawk please add a speed breaks for the A-4 Skyhawk, its a bugger to stop on runway, and hope you can give it respectable Accelertion

Can’t wait for the A4 Skyhawk. Hopefully the “non hump” version like the A4G will be available. I wonder if anyone will do the Grumman S2g Tracker?
