DCS: F/A-18C Hornet Available for Pre-Purchase!

Eagle Dynamics SA and Belsimtek are excited to announce that DCS: F/A-18C Hornet is now available for pre-purchase! 



DCS: F/A-18C Hornet will be the most authentic and detailed simulation we have ever developed, and it will use our unique CFD engine and aerodynamics developed by Belsimtek to create the most realistic flight dynamics possible. Based on exhaustive research in association with Boeing, our Hornet takes advantage of our newly developed simulation engine and it will set a new benchmark for PC flight simulation.

  

The Hornet is a true multi-role fighter that can switch from attacking surface targets to engaging air targets with the press of a button. Equally at home on an aircraft carrier or airfield, the Hornet is equipped with a large suite of sensors that include radar, target pod, and a helmet mounted sight. In addition to its internal 20mm cannon, the Hornet can be armed with large assortment of unguided bombs and rockets, laser- and -GPS-guided bombs, air-to-surface missiles of all sorts, and both radar- and infrared-guided air-to-air missiles.

DCS World provides the most rich and authentic digital battlefield for the Hornet to fly in.

Key Features of DCS: F/A-18C Hornet:

Professional Flight Model (PFM) and authentic Flight Control System (FCS)

Realistic model of the F/A-18C, down to each bolt

Detailed simulation of the Hornet’s many systems like engines, fuel, electrical, hydraulic, radios, lighting, emergency, and many, many more

Inertial and GPS navigation systems with moving map display

Virtually all the weapons and sensors that a mid-2000s US Navy F/A-18C operates

Highly realistic cockpit that is mouse interactive

Spin recovery system

Authentic Hornet sounds with assistance from Boeing

New effects like over-wing vapor

Virtual Reality support

During the Early Access period, the following items will be added to DCS: F/A-18C Hornet:

New and updated sensors to include air-to-ground radar, additional air-to-air radar modes, Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS), Link-16 Datalink, and targeting pod.

New weapons such as Harpoon, HARM, Shrike, Maverick, JSOW and SLAM, SLAM-ER missiles, Walleye, laser- and GPS-guided bombs, sea mines, fire bombs, TALD decoys, and AIM-9X and AIM-120 air-to-air missiles.

Additional display pages like the Situational Awareness, Flight Performance Advisory System, and Automatic Carrier Landing pages.


Pre-purchase now for $59.99 and save $20 from the Early Access release price of $79.99. We plan Early Access DCS: F/A-18C Hornet to be available for download by the end of Spring 2018.j

Pre Release is available till DCS determines the module is suitable for EA or Early Access,That could be anywhere between now and end of spring 2018 (worst case scenario) If you wait till pre-purchase period is over The module goes up $20.00

Is it me, or is paying someone $60 for something your don't get for possibly a few months rather odd. It's like paying for a car that we may bring you once we get it in. They have been flying this bird for months now, hence all of the videos. Why is it, that it can't be released as it is now and they update it LIKE THEY'VE DONE WITH EVERYTHING ELSE this whole period of DCS. I have been letting this sim sit for over a year now awaiting this aircraft. I don't usually post, much less rant, but this is ridiculous. I have spent hundreds of dollars over the years now, waiting for something that may be the Holy Grail to the Flight Combat Sim of the century. I am beginning to think this is nothing more than than Star Citizen for the Flight Sim group. I have been with this group since the SU-27 Flanker era. It's been a long time now. I really want to keep going but I am having my doubts. 

Sorry folks, just needed to get this off my chest.

Pivot,I feel your pain.The Usual DCS Module goes into Pre-Purchase a month before release,When DCS announces it, it's usually 90 % ready to go,They need to create a update for DCS World for the new module along with DRM Protection they also may update several other modules or maps with this update.

A New version of DCS World has been promised by the end of this month,This may have something to do with The Hornets extended pre-purchase window.

Computer Software is a funny thing,When you introduce new features and options it can just as easily interfere or break others,The Hornet will be The most advanced and Complex module DCS has done to date,They want it as flawless and trouble free as possible (a bug free bug :) ) This will be The Flagship Aircraft of DCS.

Personnally I think we will see The Hornet much sooner than later,That's just my opinion,I have no facts to back this up,I do not work for DCS.

A Month from now or six months from now one thing is almost certain ,This Aircraft will be a Game Changer in study level Combat Flight Simulation.I'm very much looking forward to it.
