Loadouts include wing and tip fuel tanks, and practice nuclear weapons mounted on the center fuselage. There is also a custom bombing calculator that will score your bombing runs. The low level attacks utilize a dual timer and a specific bombing profile, all of which is modeled. My accuracy was never very good, but then again when you are delivering a nuclear weapon pinpoint accuracy might not be so critical.

Altogether the Classic Jet Simulations CF-104 represents a fantastic opportunity to relive the glory days of Cold War technology. The F-104 was truly a “rocket with a man in it” and I’m sure every ex-Starfighter pilot looks back on their time flying it with a twinkle in their eye.
