DCS: F/A-18C

Recommended Posts

Yeah,I think this one is my favorite so far,The detail in the pit is incredible,let alone all the realistic systems implemented to back it up...DCS World 2.5 (available Wednesday Jan,31) looks Stellar as well.

***mini update***  
"A few years ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Lemoore NAS to get some time in one of their F/A-18C dome sims. It was a great experience and provided a great perspective to flying the Hornet. One item that caught me though was just how fragile the gear doors can be when over-sped. Today, we added this as a new damage element to our Hornet.

As mentioned in this week’s newsletter, progress on the Hornet is moving along quickly with much of the work focused on the air-to-air radar modes, defensive systems, INS waypoint navigation, and flight dynamics / Flight Control Computer. Our next Hornet academic video will instruct on Hornet TACAN and ADF navigation."

"Under the category of small details, we implemented differential engine modeling this week. Rather than each engine underlying modeling and IFEI indication for RPM, EGT, FF, and OIL PSI being the same, they are now modeled as separate, dynamic entities. While this may seem like a rather small thing, it has required quite a bit of work, but we feel it will provide a much more realistic modeling of the F-404 EPs. In the end, this was a must-do.

I usually don't purchase anything before it is released and reviewed. In this case, I made an happy exception. 

Really looking forward to this one. I've admired the F/A-18 since the first time I saw one. And I have even more admiration following a Blue Angels airshow. What an aircraft.

***Mini Update*** 

"Over the past several months there has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes that has been confined to code… nothing visible to really show. More recently, more and more of this work is now being tied together and integrated into the larger simulation. The included screen shot shows some of this work:

- Air Combat Maneuvering (ACM) modes. The Hornet has several ACM modes that include boresight acq, vertical acq, wide acq, and long range auto acq. In the image, you can see vertical acq selected, illustrated on the HUD and attack display. Much of the radar effort is currently focused on Single Track Target (STT) logic.

- Not as obvious in this image, but target aging is also now implemented. Unlike our current implementation of air-to-air radar that is based on target IDs, the Hornet moves us to a much more realistic air-to-air radar model that faithfully simulates the radar beam.

- On the Azimuth Display (aka RWR scope), we now have detection logic working that uses a much improved simulation of radar detection. In a related matter, the Control Indicator Panel is also now function that allows the Azimuth Display and DDI EW page to tailor the displays. This also includes the correct BIT.

- On the left DDI you will note that waypoint data is now displayed on the HSI with the ability to select one of five sequences. You may also notice TACAN and ADF information is also displayed.

In the second image, you can observe some improvements we are making to the reflective properties of the displays.

Thought some of you future DCS Hornet Drivers would be interested in this....
