Product Description

Ever wanted to fly a WWI aircraft? Now you can! Vertigo Studios Spad VII (150 bhp, early variant) comes with a total of 15 Paint schemes and is full equipped with TacPack functionality, utilizing the Vickers Machine Gun, and optional RFC over-wing Lewis Machine gun.  The guns feature custom effects for muzzle flash, tracers, and custom recorded audio. The aircraft is supplemented with easy to use configuration panel, for optional display of the pilot and the Lewis Gun, and  selection of cockpit status.


The SPAD S.VII was the first of a series of highly successful biplane fighter aircraft produced by Société Pour L’Aviation et ses Dérivés (SPAD) during the First World War. Like its successors, the S.VII was renowned as a sturdy and rugged aircraft with good climbing and diving characteristics. It was also a stable gun platform, although pilots used to the more maneuverable Nieuport fighters found it heavy on the controls. It was flown by a number of the famous aces, such as France’s Georges Guynemer, Italy’s Francesco Baracca and Australia’s Alexander Pentland.

The Vertigo Studios SPAD VII features a rich, and dynamic flight model, that has been written based on extensive study of pilot reports.


*Please note. Vertical Reality Simulations TacPack is a stand-alone weapons and warfare add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator X. It is a payware product, and it is required before weapons features will function on the Spad VII simulation.  You can obtain TacPack HERE.  Currently TacPack is not supported with Prepare 3D.

**With Prepare 3D constantly evolving, we cannot guarantee 100% compatibility of this product with P3D versions 2.+ and higher.
