After its retirement from the French military service in 2022 and more than 1.000.000 flight hours combined, it is time for the Transall to live a second life in Flight Simulator 2020!
It accomplished thousands of missions, flew above hundreds of countries and has been involved in numerous humanitarian missions.
We just wanted to salute this Franco-German aviation emblem.
Development has been conducted along with real pilots and true Transall connoisseurs.
A big thanks to the “Musée Européen de l’Aviation de Chasse” in Montélimar, France, that provided access to a retired French C-160R.
By inspecting it in every details, we have been able to reproduce an accurate and complete version of the aircraft.
We have put a lot of effort to improve even more our quality standards compared to our previous products.
The great complexity of the aircraft and its military-designed systems forced us to adapt our development processes accordingly.
Hence, our Transall includes a big amount of bespoke systems and does not re-use existing generic avionics from the simulator.
Our work is based on the C160 NG/R version which is the most modern one to have been operated in French Air Force.
