So, you are one of those flyboys who love two explore new sceneries with STYLE ! Yup, me, too. So there you go. Here you'll find a fine collection of reconnaissance aircraft for Microsoft's Flight Simulator.
Before we begin here's a short glossary
of used abreviations:
RECCE : military lingo for reconnaissance. Here used for reconnaissance aircraft which don't fit in any special section here. "Lemme see !"
FAC : Forward Air Controller. Slow 'n' low flyin' observation aircraft, mostly props. Those birds keep contact to isolated ground forces and direct fast attack planes to hard-to-see targets on the ground. "Lemme see before BANG !"
PHOTO RECON :PHOTO RECONnaissance aircraft. Fast 'n' dirty flyin' aircraft with a lot of cameras, mostly rebuilt fighters. Often used for "Bomb Damage Assesment" (BDA), i.e. proving how successful bomb raids actually were. "Lemme see after BANG !"
AWACS : Airborne Warning And Control System. Radar and sensor packed heavies which observe and control the operational airspace. "Lemme see all !"
MP : Maritime
aircraft. Sensor packed, very looooong range naval patrol aircraft, mostly
turboprops. Beside radar these aircraft are additionally equipped for "Anti-Submarine
Warfare" (ASW), including sonar buoys. "I can hear you !"
