Flysimware’s Thomas Morse Scout



The Thomas-Morse S-4 Scout was an American biplane advanced trainer, operated by the Army and Navy. Dubbed the “Tommy” by pilots who flew it, the aircraft became the favorite single-seat training airplane produced in the U.S. during World War I, having a long and varied career beginning with the S4B, which first appeared in the summer of 1917.

The S-4B, with a 110 hp Gnome, span of 27’, and length 20’3” proved more successful, with three prototypes followed by an order of 97 for the Army and 10 for the Navy, while six more were completed with two main and one tail floats as the Navy S-5.The S4B was used by practically every pursuit flying school in the U.S. during 1918.

It was supplemented in 1918 by the S-4C, at a cost of US$5400 each. Six prototypes were built, and the 80 hp (60 kW) Gnome B-9 was replaced by the “more reliable” 80 hp (60 kW) Le Rhône C-9 with the fifty-second aircraft. Four S-4Cs with floats went to the Navy, and 461 for the Army.


2 high quality models (S-4B, S-4C) powered by a 160 hp Gnome engine. These models have no throttle, that’s right no throttle, because there is no carburetor. The Gnome power and rpm are based off of the 2 magneto positions. The left magneto has 2 positions, full power and idle. The right magneto has 5 positions. Full power, which fires the spark plugs each revolution, half power 4 revolutions, quarter power, 8 revolutions and eighth power, 12 revolutions to fire 9 times. This makes it sound like a 2 stroke engine. Our custom sound set will change the sound based off of the magneto position. We included a machine gun that includes smoke effects, tracer effects and functions like the real gun.

3 paint themes with 3 bonus HD textures that you can choose from the aircraft list. Includes over 6 bump textures and realistic paint themes. The control panel gives you quick access to maps, atc, aircraft procedures, repair and refuel options.
