FSX/P3D – Rockwell-Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm X-31. The Rockwell-Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm X-31 was an experimental jet fighter designed to test fighter thrust vectoring technology. It was designed and built by Rockwell and Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm (MBB), as part of a joint US and German Enhanced Fighter Maneuverability program to provide additional control authority in pitch and yaw, for significantly more maneuverability than most conventional fighters. An advanced flight control system provided controlled flight at high angles of attack where conventional aircraft would stall or lose control. Two aircraft were built, of which only one has survived. This is an FSX update for the X-31 featuring a dramatically improved VC and a new 2D panel. I’ve tried to create both panels as closely to the real panel as possible. Automatic exhaust smoke and afterburner effect added. Thanks and credits go to Capt. I. D’Attomo for the original model.
