I'd much rather see a F-16, Mig-29, or SU-27 than a Super Hornet.

If you aren't interested that's fine

Hoewever This isnt about what I or others would rather see or in what order planned modules should be developed . I avoided it to avoid the flamming than nromally ensures when people argue which plane is better or more important. Its about the Feasibility, and the possibility of this as a future module. (which it is a reasonable given the available information)

There are alread Russian Fixed wing and F16 Wish list threads for your desires within the DCS Wishlist forum section.

Don t worry even wags said the viper is a matter of when more than a matter of if. We will get a viper at some point in time.

Your prior response of why you aren't interested was fine.

But you shouldn't accuse or make dubious claims of other users that are untrue

Would rather see a F-16, or any number of other Redfor multi-role or fighters before seeing a Super Hornet to complement the Hornet we are getting.

Would it be cool to have a Rhino? Sure. But it's a ways down my list.

An article based on an interview of a pilot that had qualified in both legacy fa18c and the super hornet



https://fightersweep.com/5334/ask-fi...-super-hornet/


However do keep in mind the main reason why the pilot considers the sh superior to the legacy is because it's compared to a block 2 with an/apg79 aesa radar.

-DFCS would need to be re-written
-Fuel and Hydraulic Systems would need to be re-written
-Propulsion Systems would need to be re-written
-Aerodynamics would need to be re-written
-Parts of the SMS would need to be re-written


Even then, there's a lot more than simply building a External and Modifying the Charlie pit and copy/pasting systems code.

no one said it was just a merely a simple copy paste code. There is a reason why this is suggested as a separate module within the wishlist section, and not asa request to be included as a DLC sque Addon or for free alongside the Hornet.. However the point is there is far more in common between a Legacy with an SH block 1 then jumping to an entirely different aircraft series. which means less $$ spent on R/D and time spent developing it would be shorter. You can't argue against reason.

Again id like an F16 as much as the next guy, But I think the Super Hornet block 1 deserved its own dedicated wishlist thread, is all. In part because :

A) dropping the misconception that theres not enough data for Super Hornet airframe to be possible ( at least with whats available now)



B) because a wishlist for this aiframe hasn't been done. Overlooked by the hype for the Legacy Hornet project, yet still talked about here in the forums.



So to some up in a single sentence what it will be for Legacy Drivers in a sort of Marketing fasion ; . the SUper Hornet, A familiar experience, but refreshing at the same time.

wouldn't the Super Hornet make the Hornet kinda obsolete in some ways? I think it would be cool but, unnecessary...?

we know it was already difficult for ED to acquire the license for the Hornet, and for us simmers it's already a privilege.

I would rather see different frames like the F-16C than a different/superior version of the same frame.

wouldnt that apply to any aircraft from a comparable era? why have an F4E, when one has a simpler F5E?

why fly a Mig21Bis if there were a Mig23MLA



But to point out the Super Hornet Block 1 wouldn't be outright superior in any hard stats, only in what i would call "soft" stats for the most part.

Only in air Time and ordinance it carries . So I suspect the people who prefer mud moving would prefer the Super Hornet ( or those techies who like fancier displays), but pilots who focus in A2A wouldn't see as much an advantage due to sharing Core Sensors such as the An/Apg73 phase 2 radar, An/APR 67 rwr, and ALE47 CM suite. But im sure even some Fighter jocks would appreciate some extra fuel time, as would the mud movers.

its Only really the block 2;s that fully outdo the capabilities of the Legacy Hornets, but i dont beleive there is enough data right now to fully simulate an AESA radar. its more than just being able to display a2a and A2G radar modes simultaneously.

Super Hornets to date have not replcaed legacy Hornets entirely. The compliment each other.


If not a module I think a SUper Hornet Ai would be fair. since it would feel at home to for Simmers to share flights with them as well as the Carrier deck, given thier comparable time frame service periods, and they regularily fly along side one another.

Similarly from the USAf a F-15E module would not negate need for an F16C or vice versa, nonetheless at least there is an F15E and F16C AI to work with.
