Microsoft Flight Simulator F4F-4 Wildcat

Today third-party developers showcased an upcoming aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator, while another airport has been released. 

We start with the aircraft, and we go all the way back to the early years of World War II with the F4F-4 Wildcat, in development at Got Friends

Today we get to see work-in-progress footage showing a carrier landing, and visual effects including gunfire and the emergency Molin flare. Interestingly, these visual effects are visible in multiplayer. 

Of course, the gunfire is only cosmetic. You shouldn't expect any sort of actual combat in Microsoft Flight Simulator.


Moving on to a release, Gudism launched Frans Sales Lega Airport (WATG) serving Ruteng in Indonesia. 

It's available on Simmarket for $6.66 including the following perks.

  • FPS Friendly
  • Detailed building ground etc
  • Accurate Sorroundings
  • PBR Texture
  • Updated AFCAD

Microsoft Flight Simulator is currently available for PC (via Steam and Windows Store), Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox Cloud Gaming, on top of Game Pass. If you'd like to learn more about its upcoming add-ons, you should stay tuned on TechRaptor, as we host daily Microsoft Flight Simulator news on the topic.
