People have been saying that you can use just about all of the features of the F-15E from the front seat. You probably won't ever need a co-pilot in it

yeah that's what i have serious doubts about

HOW could another company accurately reproduce the FC3's excellent FM??

Well, I think in the real F-15E the pilot does have access to just about everything the F-15E can do, certainly the radar and fire control system, possibly even navigation and whatnot. I think the co-pilot isn't even called a RIO because of this. The twin seat configuration is more of a general-load-sharing kind of deal, nobody is really dedicated to specific tasks other than the pilot flying the plane of course.

This presupposes that the F-15E mudhen can be flown combat systems operated by a single front pilot.
The mudhen is on of the modules I was looking forward to but interest waned with info that I would need a human back pilot to fly the module.

Interesting to know I can fly a single pilot.

Emphasis on the "I think" part. Most members here know infinitely better than I do, let's keep our happy thoughts until one of these guys answers with certainty.

Not surprising with HOTAS and modern avionic.
With older aircraft you needed so much additional controls but for modern aircraft the computer do already a lot for you, you don't need tons of buttons because of HOTAS and the way its buttons can be used for multiples modes, so there is way less workload to operate sensors.

OK I get the need to take your statement on how Razbam will implement the F-15E with a pinch of salt.

I just wish you will be right.

I'm fairly optimistic, here: https://www.military.com/equipment/f-15e-strike-eagle

It states;

"During the air-to-surface weapon delivery, the pilot is capable of detecting, targeting and engaging air-to-air targets while the WSO designates the ground target."

Sounds like shared workload not exclusive workload to me. At the very least this alone confirms Air-to-Air freedom for the pilot
