The SWS F-4 Phantom will be freeware on 12th of April

Hi all,

Just like in my previous topic about the F-104 by SimSkunkWorks, the online store SimMarket will offer the SimWorksStudios F-4B Phantom for free on the 12th of April, and ONLY ON THAT DAY.

I do not own that plane yet, but I have been following the various topics about these planes in several forums.
You can expect some beautiful 3D models both for the exterior and the virtual cockpit, as well as a very high level of realism and features.
The plane has fully functional weapons and related systems (you need TacPack by VRS I think).
Just like the MilViz Phantoms (F-4E and F-4J/S), the Phantoms by SWS (F-4B) are some of the highest quality military planes ever made for our sims. I strongly recommend you to take a close look to these ;)

I think He meant SIMWORKS STUDIOS - SWS F-4B/N(?). Looks really nice I do hope the promotion extends to the FSX version

Don't worry, I also always confuse these two acronyms. SWS and SSW ;)

Had a few problems with this one, the two runtime 2017 files crashed fsx on exit with fatal error message. Removed the two runtime files and FSX seems to be error free again.

The models look great but they don’t fly good, at least for me. It wants to pitch up and banks to the right.
