MIlViz F-86F Sabre
Countering the MiG-15\n\n\n\n
Produced by North American Aviation, the Sabre is best known as the \nUnited States\' first swept wing fighter which could counter the \nsimilarly-winged Soviet MiG-15 in high-speed dogfights over the skies of\n the Korean War (1950-53).\n\n\n\n
Considered one of the best and most important fighter aircraft in \nthat war, the F-86 is also rated highly in comparison with fighters of \nother eras. Although it was developed in the late 1940s and was outdated\n by the end of the \'50s, the Sabre proved versatile and adaptable, and \ncontinued as a front-line fighter in numerous air forces until the last \nactive operational examples were retired by the Bolivian Air Force in \n1994.\n\n\n\n
Its success led to an extended production run of more than 7,800 \naircraft between 1949 and 1956, in the United States, Japan and Italy. \nVariants were built in Canada and Australia. The Canadair Sabre added \nanother 1,815 airframes, and the significantly redesigned CAC Sabre \n(sometimes known as the Avon Sabre or CAC CA-27), had a production run \nof 112. It was by far the most-produced Western jet fighter, with total \nproduction of all variants at 9,860 units.\n\n\n\n
\n\nIntroducing the Milviz F-86F Sabre!
We are extremely pleased to introduce to you our rendition of the renowned F-86 Sabre!\n\n\n\n
As most F-86 enthusiasts will already know, there were many \nvariations of this aircraft over the course of it\'s service career. In \nresponse to the challenges posed by the formidable MiG-15 during the \nKorean War, a constant stream of improvements were designed and \nimplemented in an effort to achieve superiority.\n\n\n\n
We\'ve decided give our full focus, talents, and effort to a single variation: the F-86F-30.\n\n\n\n
The F-86F itself was deemed the \'ultimate MiG killer\' and was \nproduced in large numbers, with some 2,540 airframes manufactured. The \nF-30 represented efforts to counter the high altitude turning radius of \nthe Mig-15, with the famous \'6-3\' wing being introduced. A significant\n refinement, this modification deleted the leading edge slats and added a\n new solid leading edge with six inches more chord at the root near the \nfuselage and three inches more length at the wing tip. five inch high \nboundary layer """"fence"""" rounded out the changes.\n\n\n\n
With a maximum operating ceiling of 52,000 feet, a top speed of 695 \nmiles per hour, and the ability to finally out-maneuver it\'s primary \nfoe, the F-86F-30 became the supreme day fighter of the world.\n\n\n\n
\n\nPrecision & Perfection
Great care and attention has been given to all areas of this model. \nWe\'ve focused heavily on providing authentic flight dynamics that \nclosely mimic the real aircraft, drawing on a wealth of pilot reports \nand available documentation. As well, we\'ve also strived to closely \nmatch the systems of the F-86F30, and matched that with an extremely \ndetailed model and exquisite high definition texturing.\n\n\n\n
While we\'ve created an aircraft in which you can still \'jump in and\n fly\', those willing to take the time to thoroughly study the provided \nmanual will find a lot to benefit from, along with satisfaction of fully\n mastering one of the early complex fighter jets!
Our F-86F features a custom Aircraft Configuration Menu. Quite \nin-depth, this can be used to set detailed payload options, radio \nconfigurations and ground equipment visibility. Pilots will have to be \nmindful of how the aircraft is loaded, as adding or removing ordinance \nor fuel will have an effect on flight dynamics and handling \ncharacteristics!\n\n\n\n
The MilViz F-86 now supports a wide range of platforms, in a single downloadable installer:\n\n\n\n
\n\n    FSX: Steam Edition
\n\n    Prepar3d v2
\n\n    Prepar3d v3
\n\n    New! Prepar3d v4
18 Available Liveries\n\n\n\n
The installer includes 6 high definition liveries, including a \ntrue-to-life rendition of """"The Huff"""", which was an F-86F-30 flown by \nLt. James Thompson in the Korean War with the 51st Fighter Interceptor \nWing, 39th Fighter Interceptor Squadron.\n\n\n\n
In addition, we\'re also making available an optional livery pack \n(now freely downloadable!), which includes 12 additional stunning, high \ndefinition liveries crafted for the F-86 by Gunnar von Meeren.
We are pleased to offer a separate edition of the F-86F-30 with TacPack integration.\n\n\n\n
As of June 2017, our innovative MilViz Aircraft Management System (MVAMS) is now included with the F-86 package.\n\n\n\n
Our MVAMS utility runs outside the simulator in order to provide not \nonly a unified location for adjusting configuration settings, but it \nalso provides the means to incrementally update individual products to \nquickly address issues and make fixes when required, without having to \nhave our customers download and reinstall new versions of the aircraft. \nThis allows our customers to quickly discover and install any pending \nupdates for their aircraft, ensuring that they are completely up-to-date\n with our latest fixes, changes, or technology.
