The '''Tupolev Tu-144''' (NATO: Charger) supersonic transport (SST) was the first of the two supersonic passenger [[:Category:Airliners|airliners]] to fly.  The other one was the [[Concorde]].

The '''Tupolev Tu-144''' (NATO: Charger) supersonic transport (SST) was the first of the two supersonic passenger [[:Category:Airliners|airliners]] to fly, the other one being the [[Concorde]]. Tu-144's unique retractable canard brings its takeoff/landing speeds close to those of conventional airliners, allowing to use the same airports.
   −
The aircraft is unique for its retractable canards, which enable takeoff/landing at speeds not much higher than those of conventional airliners.
+
The Tu-144 addon for FlightGear has been developed by Michael Danilov since April 2015 and aims to accurately model the latest, long-range, variant of the aircraft (Tu-144D). It can be installed with the [[FlightGear_Qt_launcher|QT launcher]] using this hangar URL: https://gitlab.com/mdanil/Tu-144_hangar/raw/master/catalog.xml

== FlightGear model ==
+
The highlights, as of November 2020, are:
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.

* [[DATCOM]] FDM agrees with normal flight perf in the whole range of fuel and payload.
   −
== Current status ==
+
* FCS, engines, systems and most instruments follow the POH.
May 2019.
     −
* visual converted from FSX with due care;
+
* Normal flight's procedures are fully covered in Checklists window, most of them also work in Tutorials.
   −
* [[DATCOM]] FDM with experimental aeroservoelastics and ground effect;
+
* Detailed visual, adapted from from Nikita Konstantinov's FSX add-on with slight improvements, almost fully syncs over MP.
   −
* control in agreement with POH;
+
* Automated crew reduces the simulation-related workload by reading some instruments and doing some landing/RTO actions.
   −
* reasonable autopilot based on the documentation for [[Tu-154B]];
+
* Both realistic autostart and [[State_Overlay_System|state overlays]] have been implemented, allowing for quick testing and debugging.
 
  −
* plausible navigation stack with the Orbita-10 FMC, [https://github.com/yuriknsk/tu154b/blob/master/Navaids/rsbn.dat RSBN] support, mobile RSBN and mobile Katet landing system;

  −
* engines, systems and most instruments following POH;

  −
* automated crew: callouts and landing/RTO actions;
  −
 
  −
* [[State_Overlay_System|state overlays]] and realistic autostart;
  −
 
  −
* correct animation, sounds, view and particle effects in multiplayer;
  −
 
  −
* basic damage;

== Known issues ==
  −
 
  −
* much of the cockpit is still only represented by PUI dialogs;
  −
 
  −
* most of the completed panels have no text.
