Hi folks!

Last January, Eagle Dynamics dubbed 2020 to be the "Year of the Hornet". With a brand new air-to-ground radar, SLAM cruise missile and an updated LITENING II targeting pod, many sections of my Hornet guide became obsolete. Therefore, I eventually had to begin the very long and complex process of going back through everything and planning what had to be changed and what had to be added. A few hundred gallons of coffee later, there we are. We all know other updates will eventually come, but let's not think about it too hard for now.

The F/A-18C Hornet guide update is now available! See first post.

  • Start-Up procedure updated for INS update
  • Carrier takeoff procedure updated for Supercarrier
  • Radar acquisition modes clarified
  • ACM radar mods clarified
  • JHMCS operation clarified
  • Targeting Pod updated
  • Added AIr-to-Ground Radar MAP & Expanded modes
  • Weapon section re-structured
  • Updated JSOW tutorials
  • Updated JDAM tutorials
  • Updated GBU-12 tutorial
  • Fuel Dump clarifications
  • Master Modes clarifications
  • Engine section expanded
  • Fuel section expanded
  • AGM-84E SLAM tutorials added
  • MK20 Rockeye tutorial added
  • AGM-65 IR Maverick tutorial with tgp added
  • AGM-65E Laser Maverick tutorial updated
  • HSI (Horizontal Situation Indicator) section expanded
  • RWR symbology clarified (N, I, A, U, F)
  • Landing tips added (including HUD declutter and velocity vector caging)

Overall, a lot of new stuff crammed in there... the page count went from 350 to 530+ pages. Once again, if you guys still have any suggestions, recommendations or corrections, please let me know.
