The Chengdu J-10 is a multirole fighter aircraft designed and produced by the People's Republic of China's Chengdu Aircraft Industry Corporation. Known as "Vigorous Dragon", the J-10 is the most important aircraft designed in the past 20 years in the Chinese Aviation Industry. The J-10, which entered service in 2005, is a 3rd+ Generation multi-role combat aircraft capable of all-weather day/night operation. The J-10 from Bear Studios is an accurate and in-depth simulation product for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 & FSX (as well as ESP/Prepar3D). In this product, Bear Studios simulates complex systems and operating procedures from a real combat aircraft.
|Bear Studios Chengdu J-10 "Vigorous Dragon" for FSX/2004|
- In-depth simulation based on officially published papers related to Engine,
Hydraulic Machinery, Avionics, Radar, Flight Controls, and Navigation.
- Highly efficient and detailed external modeling. Delivery and Jettison sequence
- Weapons and storages individually modeled with weight. When selecting weapons/storage
released from the aircraft, the SMS (Storage Management System) will detect
the status and make dynamic changes.
- Custom keystrokes mapped to gaming devices for HOTAS setups.
- Highly detailed Virtual cockpit (VC) features:
- High resolution textures with sharp gauge text.
- Emissive Avionics, MFD, and HUD.
- Flood light and console light in 2 colors, MFD and gauge back light
for night flight. Interior lights controlled individually by light control
switches, simulating electrical bus behavior.
- Switchable cockpit positions both in FS2004 and FSX (2-seats only).
- Cockpits in both Chinese and English languages. Switchable via automatic
- JL-10A Multi-role Fire Control Radar and Optical Sensor System simulation.
- All weapons and weapon storages have delivery animation sequences and procedures,
controlled by the SMS system.
- Built-in aerial refueling using AI aircraft for Tanker.
- Fully animated canopy and ejection sequences.
- Procedural animation system including:
- Missile launches (4 types, with smoke tail and flame attached to animated
- JDAM/LGB/Bomb release (4 types, with animated bomb shapes).
- Rocket launches, with smoke tail and flame attached to rockets shapes.

deployed with real limitations related to real aircraft.
- Automatically trailing and leading edge flaps. Controlled by related
- Tip vapor effects.
- Afterburner and engine flame effect, controlled by conditional status.
- Gsh-23-2 Gun system and effect simulation.
- Cockpit sound system for warning with advisor voice (FSX only).
- Built-in exterior lights for landing, taxing, dim-able navigation and beacon
- 60 pages of Operational Flight Manual.

real aircraft. Includes 10 liveries covering typical J-10 units.
- Advanced graphics /back lighting techniques. Highly accurate, custom designed
avionic displays (MFD, HUD, DTU, CNI displays).
- Custom Auto Throttle for Cruise, Approach and Takeoff Status, continually
adjusted by the Flight Control System.
- Custom 10-mode autopilot which mimics the actual J-10 FCS:
- Barometric Altitude Hold (BALT).
- Radar Altitude Hold (RALT).
- Flight Path Angle Hold (FPAH)
- Heading Select (HSEL).
- Custom in-flight waypoint reprogramming via build-in GPS system.
- Coupled Waypoint (CPL WPT).
- Coupled Sequence (CPL SEQ).
- Coupled TACAN (Ground-based TACAN navigation).
