    Prepar3D Freeware Focus: A.F. Scrub

    By Nirosan Pragash

    In this freeware focus article, I will be looking at three Prepar3D add-ons (also compatible with FSX), which I feel are well worth your time investigating. Before I talk about each one specifically, I wanted to explain my reasons for writing a freeware article based around Prepar3D, and not FSX.

    Unlike many of you reading this, I am a relatively new convert to the world of flight simulations, having first experienced Microsoft's FSX flight simulator about four years ago. Prior to that, I was a console only gamer (mostly Second World War first person shooters and driving games), but after seeing a friend land at an airport I know well from vacations, I was hooked!

    FSX is a great simulator, and one which has served me well. However, now that my computer hardware is up to scratch, I have finally made the move to Prepar3D, and the changes (in places) is quite remarkable. For me personally, I think the biggest difference I have found between FSX and Prepar3D, is that Lockheed Martin's platform seems to work a lot better from the off. Less tweaking means I can enjoy my flying (and simulated training) more often. However, many of the aircraft I have purchased for FSX, are not compatible (or licensed) for the latest release of the simulator (at present, version 4), and so this has led me to look for freeware alternatives.

    As my particular area of interest lies in military aviation, I decided to look for aircraft that fell into this category. Modern jets are okay, but I far prefer aircraft from World War 2, up to the Vietnam war era if I'm honest. This was where aviation saw its biggest technological advances, so it provides a real interesting period for a relative newcomer like myself.

    Luckily for me, it didn't take too long at all to find what I wanted, and so mentioned below are three military aircraft by the talented A.F. Scrub which I feel represent some of the best military freeware files available for Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D.

      Since mr Scrub makes his aircraft available for Prepar3D V4 I am a very, very satisfied "customer"of him. Most of his warbirds are now in my hangar.
