    Review: IndiaFoxtEcho - MB-339 For MSFS 2020

    The MB-339 from developer IndiaFoxtEcho is the first military aircraft add-on for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. Despite being somewhat held back by the current state of the MSFS 2020 SDK, reviewer Dale Ashcroft found the plane to be exceptional. It's not a study level aircraft but it is still created to a high standard, both in how it functions and in how it looks and sounds.
