Microsoft Flight Simulator developers are constantly releasing new assets and add-ons for the popular simulation, and today is no exception.

We start with CJ Simulations who have released new screenshots of the Eurofighter Typhoon via the product page Flight’s store only.

While no release date has been announced, we now know that it will cost $34.99 and include the following features.

Fully native MSFS aircraft

The Typhoon was coded with Microsoft Flight Simulator native “Model Behaviors” animations and built to MSFS operational specifications to minimize issues with future simulator upgrades.

The CJ Simulations Typhoon is fully compatible with MSFS native materials and leverages the new simulator’s features such as rain effects and sounds, fully reflective glass, native aerodynamic sound structures, the new “modern” aerodynamic system and customized vision controls for wheel chocks and covers.

Other features include authentic night lighting that includes user controlled “sneak lights” for combat missions and custom coded animations for flaperons and slats based on the aircraft’s airspeed and angle of attack.

Numerous external animations include the canopy, crew leaders, tail hook and all control surfaces, as well as a customized delta and canard flight model based on real-world data for the Typhoon.

The Typhoon is also fully compatible with virtual reality headsets.
