I'd like to take advantage the pre-order, but there is no info or option about purchasing the F/A-18C and new Nimitz-class carrier together as a package?

From the "DCS: F/A-18C Hornet FAQ" thread, which was only updated yesterday: (12 Jan 1

"Q: Will the Hornet come with a new, highly-detailed Nimitz-class aircraft carrier with new features and functionality never seen before in DCS World?
A: These will be two separate modules, but we plan to provide a bundle deal that includes both. We currently plan a less-detailed version that will be a free part of DCS World."
.

So will this bundle-deal be available during the pre-order? Thanks for any info.

That's strange. I thought you don't get bonus on any reduced price module.

I have been waiting since Jane's F-18 (1999), I can wait longer while enjoying a full featured A-10C

Happy Simming,

I think the good part about this is that we all have a lot of time to decide. So no need to rush buying it right now. (especially if you can't afford it)

As soon as I have read abought the pre-purchase of this "flying dream" I decided in the time of 1ms to buy the module.
I've got a lot of respect for money but even more respect for people... expecially for those people who work hard for so many time to create this level of simulation.
So thank You ED Team.. go ahead to the objective.. release the new DCS 2.5 and work asap for F/A-18 release date...

All new releases will use the same type of DRM that the Harrier uses. That was announced at the time the Harrier was released into EA.
