But indeed the F/A18C's were regarded as just A's with Cockpit/ avionics upgrades eventually given a new designation past a certain production run ( starting in 1987). A different designation. In this case its not just cockpit/avionics upgrades, AS IFF and ECM were upgraded which gave some change to the airframe on the cf18.

so Semantics at the end of the day

VFA-204, out of Belle Chasse NAS, New Orleans. An hour and a half from my house. I'd love to see this texture in the sim!! In the picture with four Hornets, the top one is a low-vis scheme for VFA-204.

And A to C is more than just Cockpit/Avionics, there are Airframe and Structural Changes

While ED wont be doing any RCAF skins, I am sure they will be getting done at some point.

you dont say. thats what i said in my post, but honestly can you spot the difference ( or dot rather). I think most cant. spot subtle changes. especially those Former A's that are now up to C standards.

In any case I can only hope ED changes their mind and does this later along the Road.

correct me If Im wrong , but i think the upcoming F18C template will fully replace the now existing F18C template in the sim , right?

So you mean , ED will add RCAF skins to the new F18C model in the future or you pointed into the direction of community modders/skinners ?

The Hornet gets a completely new 3d model so I expect a new template for it as well.

If you look at the list Wags posted no RCAF skin was mentioned and there probably won't be one. So I'm sure skinners will take the chance and will create any skin that is left such as the Blue Angels, RCAF, RAAF or swiss air force skins which will probably one of the first ones you see on the User Files.

Its always possible ED would add basic ones down the road, but I was meaning its more likely that the community would be all over it before them.
