Should do both.

+1 for a special pilot model for the hornet.

And why not a box in the mission editor to choose between older helmet or a newer with JHMCS.

I am also looking forward for deck crew models and animations like for Heatblur's Forrestal carrier: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=189312

Yup!, I also noticed that inmediately after watching the high quality videos...the cockpit (or at least the pilot) in the external model looked pretty much the same as in the A10C and knowing that the helmet must support the HMD I guess we should get a totally new pilot and helmet (and with increased details/poly count)

I have no doubt some talented skinners will create A model skins after release.

Thanks!
Will we also have the "special" fuel tank from the swiss air force in the game?

And also would be nice to have the NACES seat. Only training units kept the original ejection seat.

Yes, A-10C is incapable to communicate directly via Link16 nets.

NACES seats are used in all Lot 13 and above hornets. It has nothing to do if it's in a training command. As we are getting a Lot 20, NACES it is.

The cockpit view already has it; the external model will when completed (same with JHMCS helmet).

(my bad, edited instead of a reply)
