I'm looking forward to the AGM-65 Maverick with FLIR pod.
AMRAM 120 slammers!

Now I sure don't want to come across as Mr. Know it all, cause "I ain't"! But I think after all these years of Janes FA18 E , US Navy Fighters, Flanker, LOMAC, FC and now DCS... Now that we have something so much more to perfection and so well done, I don't think much has changed as far as approaching the Carrier.
That's not the ball, that's the AOA indexer. The ball is on the boat.
