Default [NO, NOT ACCURATE] ILS - ICLS airports

As we know, the F-18 has an "ICLS" system. As of today, this system has only an aircraft carrier, which makes it difficult to land in bad weather at ordinary airports.
Is there plans to introduce this system at ground airports, maybe at these airports what "ILS" already have? Is there plans to upgrade airports, TACAN, ILS, ICLS?

There is no ILS on the US F/A-18C’s. It is fitted to some countries that have land based Hornets but they aren’t the version modelled here.

I know it. The question is: is there a chance for an ICLS system at airports?

Why don't they (ED) look into adding the landbase ils option? Let's be realistic here.. this is just a representation of the Aircraft.... it is not modelled exactly like the real aircraft, they (ED) are not allowed. So a feature like adding the land based ILS (which some Countries have) would be nice and would not distract from the simulation/atmosphere.

What’s wrong with a Tacan Approach?

i don't see a problem landing on an airfield without ILS under bad weather conditions.


1st - Setup TACAN
2nd - Setup course on HSI
3rd - Start your approach from 10nm @ 3000ft with a glidescope of -3 degree
4th - If you can't see the runway at 1nm distance, Abort landing! choose a different airfield
5th - If you see the runway at 1nm distance, bring her home


I'm not sure but i think Wags showed us this in one instructional Video.

How many airports in the Caucasus has TACAN? ILS has more ... And how is visibility up to 100-200m, fog like milk, fuel is missing?

If your airport don't have TACAN or ILS. you can get the coordinates and create a waypoint. all you need is a "fix-point" and the runway heading.

Going this way, of course, I can land in the local Aero Club or in my wife's garden. However, we are talking about large airports, which are not currently damaged or disaster-stricken.
