|Type||Airliner, Supersonic aircraft|
|Configuration||Canard aircraft, Delta-wing aircraft|
The aircraft is unique for its retractable canards, which enable takeoff/landing at speeds not much higher than those of conventional airliners.
The project was conceived in July 2014 and has been active since April 2015. Its goal is to accurately model flight dynamics, systems and instruments of the Tu-144 entirely in JSBSim and then make a convincing visual model.

- FDM and control in agreement with POH;
- reasonable autopilot based on the documentation for Tu-154B;
- plausible navigation stack with the Orbita-10 FMC, RSBN support, mobile RSBN and mobile Katet landing system;
- complete set of cockpit warnings;
- engines, systems and most instruments following POH;
- automated crew: callouts and landing/RTO actions;
- state overlays and realistic autostart;
- correct animation, sounds, view and particle effects in multiplayer;
- basic damage;
- visibility of Su-15 MPClash missiles;
- Mumble control;
- automatic pushback;
- basic instruments and annunciators in 3d.
- The visual model needs a replacement;
- most of the cockpit is still only represented by PUI dialogs.
The reworking of visual will start when the relevant sizes are known from cockpit modeling.
