We're getting off topic.

But, DCS:A-10C Avionics are at Suite 3, and that's what ED was given permission to Model in 2008/2009, The Air Force/ANG is well beyond that, at Suite 8.x now.

The A-29 is capable of Utilizing the LAU-68G/A Pod, So Yes, it Can utilize APKWS, though it was not certified by BAE. (The LAF uses APKWS on their A-29s).

The USN/USMC Legacy Hornets can Carry and Fire Hydra70 Rockets, But have Never Test Fired nor Upgraded software to use the APKWS. it'd be a waste of Money, Seeing the USN/USMC Legacy hornets are less than 10 years away from Total Retirement.

Now if Finland or Switzerland decided to upgrade their Hornets, that'd be a different story, but they do not fly Lot 20 Airframes and they run a newer OFP as well.

On the latest Hornet mini-update Wags indicated a "small but OCD-inducing" bug somewhere. Does anybody see it?

It was correct alignment for the DZUS fasteners.

Default Aerial Refueling

So guys, I have a question.
How is the Aerial Refueling? Are there any Autopilot Modes like in the -33 that help you stay on the tanker or is it all done manually?

The Hornet doesn't have any dedicated AP modes for AAR. However, I know that some Rhino pilots will use AP to dampen inputs and reduce workload to stay in the basket.

Wait how are skin makers going to compensate for making the CF-188, if the F/A-18 we're getting don't seem to have a spotlight panel...???

I'm referring to the newest screenshot:
Is that the ATFLIR pod on station 5 (?) or the Litening?
Will we get to use both of them? (not simultaneously of course..)

I guess the bombs are Mk20 Rockeyes
Maybe someone can describe the whole loadout in detail?

That's the Litening pod. ED is going to make the ATFLIR instead, and not the Litening for the Hornet.
