Its out! Royal Air Force Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4
This addon is intended to represent the Royal Air Force's EuroFighter Typhoon FGR4 only. No other national version is included at this time.
A word about "Realism"
It includes some features and capabilities that current serving aircraft have not been given yet. We've taken the liberty of trying to represent a fully capable aircraft that can support the widest possible range of weapons and roles. For the RAF's FGR4 at least this level of capability should only be 2-3 years away according to media sources.
