Sim Skunk Works is back with a new iteration of its stellar simulation of the Lockheed Martin Starfighter for Microsoft Flight Simulator. After the launch of the two-seater variant late last year, the studio is now offering the single-seat version, for those who like the loneliness of zipping through space in this striking aircraft.
The Sim Skunk Works Starfighter is a beautiful and detailed product that deserves your attention if you’re into this kind of airplane. It’s a fully-featured simulation, where the developer has attempted to reproduce the real-world flying experience, with some unique characteristics like a functional NASARR R-15 radar.
The single-seat variant that launches today is mostly the same experience, but with a slightly different external model. There’s one major new feature though, which is exclusive to the single-seat model: an autopilot! It should now be easier to maintain stable flight in the Starfighter.
It’s unclear if this new variant comes with added functionality besides the autopilot introduction, but we do know that it comes with a beautifully rendered 3D model inside and out, fully animated and featuring an impressive custom sound pack. The single-seat FRF-104G Starfighter also includes a nice selection of multinational liveries, 12 in total, and there’s even a paint kit available for creators to make their own.
If you loved the original Starfighter, the new single-seater may compel you with its autopilot upgrade and sleek looks. For everyone else, this is easily a must-have if fast military jets are your thing.
The Sim Skunk Works FRF-104G Starfighter is now available for MSFS, priced at around $25 / €25. It should also come to the Marketplace soon!
