Tacview 1.8.8 is now available on tacview.net and Steam!


Download: https://tacview.net/download

  • Release Date: Fri, 6 May 2022
  • Operating System: Windows® 32-bit / 64-bit
  • File Size: 599.8 MB

I know, it’s been six months since the last update… This is because I am now focused on Tacview 2 development: Currently working the brand new 2D/3D Vulkan/Metal renderer which – ultimately – should offer much higher performance compared to Tacview 1. Don’t know how much faster yet, but the goal is to be able to display millions synthetic buildings and trees on the ground, so any action taking place low and slow (from tanks to helicopters), will have a nicely detailed debriefing.


Meanwhile, in parallel, with the help of BuzyBee, we are continuing to update Tacview 1 content, fixing bugs, and developing news addons to help you with everyday flights as well as special events streaming.


I still cannot promise any release data for Tacview 2, be assured that I am working hard on it!


Happy flights!
Vyrtuoz & BuzyBee
