Heatblur: AJS-37 Viggen

Ok, so I fired the Viggen up again. An incredible user friendly aircraft, especially considered that is was designed in the 1960s.


#811

So that apparently works as well :slight_smile:


#812

It really was ahead of its time.
It was designed to be user friendly for both pilots and mechanics.
It was served by conscript mechanics and we could switch engines in the field. Avionics racks that allowed for easy switching of computers and other electronics.
I’m proud to have served during the Viggen era. :slight_smile:

Nice landing. -5 points for not backing into the parking spot though.


#814

But can it launch?


#815

Nice landing, Mbot! I hope you were using my USN VA skins on that approach. :grin:


#816

Oh why didn’t I think of that?


#817

featuring DCS Cows ! :joy:


#818

That’s some seriously 80’ music!


#819

its a sexy looking plane.


#820

The «15» on the nose of those AJs denotes F15 Wing, from Söderhamn, where I did my military service :slight_smile:
Although, in the movie, they seem to be based at Visby, on the Island of Gotland, in the Baltic. Squadrons took turns manning the alert readiness base there.
Memories… :heart_eyes:


#821

If you still don’t have it, now is your chance to get it on the cheap! $24


#822

Bork jet is good investment, do recommend.


#823

Dangit, and I’m still learning how to fly five others right now…Sigh.

whips out credit card


#824

I’m really tempted, but I promised myself… no more modules until the P47 and the A6 are released.
Once those two are out, I buy those and I’ll never need anything else anymore. :slight_smile:

Narrator voice: except Komemiute knew all too well that was a blatant lie

No I dont.

Narrator voice: yes you do.

Well, maybe.

Narrator voice: sure…


#825

You won’t regret making an exception for the Viggen at that price. We won’t tell anyone :wink: .


#826

Definitely worth $24. I got it another sale, it has some interesting capabilities. Fun to fly.


#827

Dude, you’re not helping! Thank goodness the better half is out of town for another night- I’ll never hear the end of it:

“I haven’t seen you fly this one before… You bought ANOTHER PLANE? Didn’t you just started learning now to fly one a few weeks ago??”


#828

psssh, easy peasy. Buy her the Viggen, so she can fly with you.


#829

Haha your partner is more observant than mine. I’m pretty sure my wife’s excessive eye-rolling when she sees me simming prevents her from seeing the differences between cockpits…
