The English Electric Lightning was designed in the late 1950's as an interceptor. This class of aircraft had to have great speed and even better climb speed to intercept the Russian bombers before they could reach their targets. The Lightning most certainly is fast and was in fact the first aircraft that could do supercruise, meaning it could fly supersonic without the use of afterburner.
The F3 version in this product is not an easy aircraft to fly. It’s complex and full of systems you have to manage without the aid of modern electronics. Landing especially is hard as the landing speed is awfully high and there are many things you have to check.
Aircraft of this type are rare for Flight Simulator and we feel the Lightning fills a niche that needed filling.
