What's a real challenge in FSX is doing low-level flying in the Iranian mountains in a Lear 45, that's news.....

 

Yes it can be done, however don't overspeed and don't pull too hard on the stick, or you'll overstress. Yah I know it's no combat fighter for multiple G's but sometimes you really have to think outside the box....

Sorry I didn't make myself clear enough. Terrain masking is on autopilot mode.

 

Ok, so you mean terrain following then? Getting the AP to do that is indeed pretty impressive.

Masking is hiding yourself from enemy detection via terrain being between you and them. Several other sims do NOT feature this and will lock you up right through a mountain, although any missiles fired will tend to hit the mountain instead of you.
