Courtesy of Top Mach Studios, LLC
Introducing the world's most advanced operational air superiority fighter, presenting a monumental challenge for any flight simulation developer. A project of passion for us, Top Mach Studios has devoted over 9 months of research and development to creating this fully custom model (not based on an FSX / Prepar3D model) for MSFS 2020, we have pushed the boundaries of what is possible to do in MSFS 2020. We are proud to present this high performance and highly functional replica of the F-22A to the MSFS 2020 community. We believe this aircraft will give you absolute thrills and true piloting joy.
In return, we ask that you show your appreciation by taking a moment to give your opinion, your comments and suggestions are very important. We hope you have as much fun piloting this Raptor as we had making it. Top Mach Studios.
