Default F-18E SuperHornet Lock-on 1.2? or 2.0?

Hi,

Apart for consideration that the Mig-29 series upgrade can be a possible futur add-on, what i would want is the F-18E playable to complement the F-15 and A-10, what do you guys think?

It's a possibility or not?

Best Regards.

Ok. You give me a complete avionics description. Then we will see... And... don't forget about DFCS description.

Tovan, let me explain it to you a little more clearly. ED has said they can't model an F/A-18 without all the manuals, specifically, the tactical manual. The US Navy isn't allowing Tactical manuals to go public. The community has been asking for a Hornet for quite some time. They have stated that they have all the data for the F-15, but they've only modeled a fraction of the avionics in the F-15.

This is about as good as a manual you can get on the Superhornet.
It's the NATOPS Flight Manual of the Superhornet form Patricks Avi site. It's around 35 Megs. Thats the guts of the unclassified info on the net anyway.

Olgerd but wouldn't you like to make F-18 flyable in your sim as so many are asking for it? So what some parts of it would not be completely realistic but left only to guess. We believe that you can do it close to how the real thing would be
Same with F-14

Is Matt considered to be a consultant of ED, Olgerd? If so...didn't he have a team of developers that created Janes F-18?? Based on the superhornet??
If that is to be true is it possible to use some of that data they had on that project to make the F-18 for Lock On?

I can sort of provide an answer to that, as described previously by Wags.

Jane's had 'unique' access to knowledge about the superbug, to the point where some things were apparently not modelled so as to maintain secrecy. ED isn't going to get any of that.

We are constantly getting something new for various aircrafts. Rescently we was able to obtain the complete symbology description for very rescent F/A-18A/B versions. F/A-18C/D (and especially F/A-18E/F) is still a problem in some aspects. Fortunately TAC-series is not only possible official source for symbology and avionics descriptions.
