So that's a "no," the stennis doesn't work.

It's funny seeing all these people complaining about paying $60 for the Hornet, when funnily enough the exact same complaints were made about the A-10C 6 years ago and the price was exactly the same, $60.

Unfortunately, a significant amount of people seem to have little to no grasp on what it takes to run a business and develop a product. Thinking companies just poop out a product with an "excessive" price tag just to make a quick buck from Joe-consumer.

Everyone should complain about such a long preorder and not support such ideas. The next module will become the standard, and the next preorder will last for a year ... Unfortunately, most of you will still be applauding ED, despite this approach. I am saddened by the lack of respect for the client.
I remember when Ubisoft put Far Cry 4 on pre-order at full price and something like 8 month away from release. Now talk about a lack of respect...

Yeah, and it will probably always be like that. People have to develop an aircraft themselves. Only then they would realize how much effort it is. Well, a lot do actually. That's something we should not forget.

Personally, I think the modules are worth twice or even thrice the money. But it's an "optimization problem". Not many would/could afford it for the price it is actually worth. So yes, $60 is a lot of money and I understand that not everyone is happy. But at least to me it is still a bargain given what we actually get.

Not sure if I want to prepurchase now for the $20 off or wait till I get back and see if it goes on sale at all, I have been eagerly awaiting this module!
Just wait until the actual release date is confirmed
then in the last 10 minutes before it is released buy then
Money is better off in your bank account earning you interest
and you will still get the discount, it is a win win for you :-)

No, that is not what I typed. I typed the Stennis, that we have in game, is a very simple rendition since no US player controlled aircraft currently operate from a carrier. What is in game works just fine for the AI. Well except for the recent release of the Harrier, but it doesn't operate from the Stennis anyways.

What the Stennis will be for the launch of the Hornet has yet to be divulged.
