P3D v4 Weapons

Hi,
I switched to P3D from FSX SE a couple months ago. However, one of the things I was interested in was the combat capability in aircraft such as Vertical Reality Simulations' Tac Pack. Unfortunately, before researching the addon for P3D Professional, I bought the F18 and Tac Pack products not realizing that Tac Pack won't work with my version of the simulator - and that it only works in P3D Academic Edition. I did some further research into alternatives, but it seems like VRS is the only one. I checked out the P3D manual and saw that they have a section on the SDK, which has a weapon creation section. What software would I need aside from the SDK to make custom Air to Air and Air to Ground Weapons for the default aircraft? Any help you can provide is appreciated.

Regards,
Kevin Davis
 
The built-in weapons system in p3d only works in the professional plus version, not academic or standard professional versions.

SimSkunkWorks vACMI weapons systems work in P3D v4.5 academic and I would think they would work in the standard professional version since they are add-on and not built in.

Hi Roy,
I checked out some of the aircraft on Sim Skunk Works' site, but they made it seem like their products are no longer available online. Are you sure that they're combat-enabled? Thanks again for the reply.

Sorry for the delay, just saw this.
SSW used to sell direct but now do it through others indirectly online.
For combat enable you use the free download of vACMI available from SSW.
