Does anybody know of a pushback tug for flight sim, just for driving around? I've searched avsim for a few weeks now and can't find anything. (I've tried the Hama Towing car, and the Ramp Tractor) I'm looking for a decent tug that looks like they do today, and one that I can use to explore the airport.

I don't think there are standalone pushback tugs available for FS9. There are tugs, but they're almost always modelled into the aircraft, so they can be activated either through the pushback or with a special command prior to pushback (like for example wingfold or tailhook). In any case, no tug can be used for towing an aircraft from one stand to another unless you slew.

I think most of posky's stuff comes with tugs as 2 of my 737's have tugs and wingwalkers on them. (non-drivable)
But to answer the question, I havent seen any tugs but i have seen Drag cars, ferraris and the sort. The thing is even if you do have a tug you cant just latch onto a plane and push it back or anything.
You cant have your cake and eat it... What the hells the point in having it then!!!

I'm aware that you can't connect to the aircraft... I would think that a tug is just like a car in FS. I would guess that its less complicated to create than an aircraft, as there is no need for control surfaces, but I may be wrong. I guess I'm going to have to keep looking. Thanks guys.
