F-15 Is the plane too slow?



  • I had my first test flights yesterday. Then I wanted to catch up with a friend who was traveling in an A320. That took a long time!

    I noticed that the plane is just too slow!

    Fuel: 50%
    Height: FL360
    Airspeed according to HUD: max 365kt

    Shouldn't the plane be able to do about 1600kt / 3016 kmh?
    Tested once with start on the runway and once with Cool and Dark!



  • As far as I know, there's still a Mach 1 hard limit in MSFS. Limitation of the simulator, not DCD's F-15.
    I did read a post by DCD on their Facebook page, that a possible solution to "bypass" that had been found. Will be updated up ahead 👍

    Yes. There is a speed limit in MSFS but there may be a workaround possible,



  • @endl3ss There is another Jet the Eurofighter Typhoon and it can easily get up to 1600Kts in MSFS2020. So why is it not a problem on that plane? Or they can use same workaround

    @dm9966 All irrelevant now we think as it looks like it's sorted and will be possible. Update due now week, look out for it.



  • @dm9966 the flight behavior over 500kt with the Eurofighter is very bad. I have this one too and am disappointed.



  • Hi everyone, the F-15 Eagles will be Mach 2+ capable by the first update, released hopefully this week.

    Airspeed at altitude is measured by Mach, not knots, due to the lower air-pressure. Mach 2 at 55,000 feet reads as approx 550 knots, but the speed over the ground far below will be much much higher.



  • SUPERSONIC FLIGHT IS NOW POSSIBLE ON MSFS "MODERN FLIGHT MODEL"!!!?!?!

    Yes. Long story short the modding community has discovered that setting to zero certain parameters in the flight model configuration, it is actually possible to get planes to go well beyond Mach 1.0 which seemed, initially, an hard-coded limit in the flight model.
