An outside model is enough to break the dive. For me, he would not be a true 12th Wing fighter at the Torrejón base. In fact, the Eurofighter will be my next module, if the improved UH-1H doesn't come out first. Many people like to fly the plane that represents them and not put skin to a model by becoming fictional. I have been pretending that the Mirage 2000 was a Mirage F1, or a Eurofighter, for a long time, because until the launch of the Hornet, Spain did not have a fourth generation fighter. I am in favor of working on airplanes that are operational in most countries so that the entire community feels represented. From the utmost respect.

 

Fair enough, but i don't let nationalism blind me to what aircraft like or dislike , or choose to fly, or at least not be the first and foremost reason for buying an aircraft.

 

I look at buying modules from a pragmatic POV. What is this aircraft role, and what are its capabilities, and does it fit my play style or personal requirements of what i want to to do?. I approach almost as if i were an buying a car ( or a defense official shopping for a aircraft for that matter ;) ) . And i would like to think that there are many more like minded people given the fact that "multirole" genre fighters seem to be the best sellers.

 

Only 2nd place do i look at historical significance, and and only in a very near last place whether other not my country uses it or not.

 

 

Its which is why i myself am interested in the Eurofighter even though my nation does not operate it.

 

 

Hence even if Canada doesn't operate the Super Hornet, i would have been equally ( if not more happy) if Super Hornet had been done over the legacy Hornet within DCS, granted, the legacy has a broader time period going for it even if it is a "mid 2000s" variant.

It is not "nationalism" it is called illusion.

 

The same illusion as the child who has a firefighter dad and goes to the toy store to buy a fire engine like his dad's.

If Canada ends up with anything, I bet its the Gripen. I certainly would prefer the block III SH but liberals are liberals.

I don't think it was necessary to use memes to express yourself. I think you've started to be disrespectful. The moment you said "nationalisms don't blind you" should have blocked you. If you're not going to respect opinions, don't post polls. Someone who is not excited to fly the plane of his country and calls it "nationalist blindness" does not deserve another minute of my time.

Yes because i was confused by your response. Maybe it was lost in translation?

 

Any case Dont cherry pick my statement., hence why i said 'fair enough". You have your reasons and i have mine. It means you have your methods of selecting your aircraft and i have my own decision making process that simple as that. I explain my own though process of choosing an aircraft, not arguing against your personal method.

 

You chose to get offended at something trivial that wasn't intended to come off so strong or as an insult. I'm sorry you chose to interpret it as such. I understand that some people will want to fly as specific respective air force, or even be enthusiastic enough to role-play down to a specific squadron. Thats simply not the forefront for aircraft choice when it comes to me.

 

Also sorry for not being sorry that i would rather fly a Super Hornet over a CF18 even though my air force operates the latter.

The normal thing is that virtual squads like the Blue Angels, fly with the model of their unit, instead of taking another model and painting it blue and it is not nationalistic blindness, they even take out a mod to represent the cockpit. The virtual Eagle patrol also prefers to fly with the plane of its unit, than to take any other and paint it orange and gray and it is not nationalist blindness either. This is completely normal for 99% of military aviation enthusiasts.

Fair enough. Maybe i just dont have the same level of passion as some people have to this hobby

 

I would think the cockpit difference of blue angel specific legacy Hornets are inconsequential given that they only do aerobatics flying and not any combat missions.

 

 

Ah well i guess that gives ED an opportunity to do DLC of aircraft sub variants or derivatives should they run out of ideas of new modules.

Now you said it well, you called it passion and not nationalistic blindness.

 

Well, I honestly think your intention was not to offend. I apologize.

More likely to be the F-35, Canada has been a partner nation since the start (or near the start) of the program and would lose out on billions and jobs if they decided to abandon it

Perhaps your unaware of the actions taken against Boeing by the Canadian government.

 

I do however, hope you are correct.

The F-35 is made by Lockheed Martin not Boeing :smilewink:

 

You are correct.

 

I'd say that a country of such a small population with better than a trillion dollars in debt and a focus on importing illegal immigrants can't afford the F-35.

 

Pardon the politics however we all know its the reality of the situation.

Ok Guys and Gals, Lets all take a minute to calm down and breathe,

 

It's not about the politics of Boeing, or This Country or that Country, etc.

I'm not sure who you think is excited.

 

Certainly I understand not wanting to make a topic political, however an immediate jump to a conclusion the statements are made in anger is also unnecessary.

I'd be down for an F/A-18E in a heartbeat. But unfortunately from what some of the guys on here are saying the source material for the Block II model are largely classified. Still it would be nice to see the guys from Vertical Reality Simulations bring their module from Flight Simulator to FSX or perhaps even see ED develop a Super Hornet someday. A man can dream right? :D

That will never happen, not even in alternate realities.

Why would ed make 18E/F, that would kill hornet sales. Furthermore, first SH are no different from hornets in terms of radar and +- avionics

 

True, but those extra two weapons stations. :)

I'm sorry but it's a no for me. The Hornet while awsome is just another 4th gen. It's a bit faster, and a bit bigger then the F-18C that me currently have. But doesn't bring new capabilities or weapons. I would much rather see them put their time into a Super Crobra. Or something like that.

Gotta agree with that. A super cobra would be epic.

I believe that I should say it again:

 

The F/A-18F Block 1(not an E, yes, the Echo Block 1 won't have much more capable than Charlie), is much better than any version of Legacy Hornet due to its two-seat capabilities. The WSO(something different from RIO of F-14) of Foxtrot brings great enhancement of SA, much more efficiency of sensor opreating for both A2A and A2G engagements, in addition to larger fuel and weapon capacity, so the Rhino Foxtrot (even Block 1) will provides game experiment much greater than Hornet Charlie.

 

From above, I'm not really need an F/A-18E but I'm eager to get an F/A-18F.

P.S. The F/A-18F has a much better look than F/A-18E.
