I'm new to this forum, so this is a new topic to me; is DCS ever going to get the E/F variant of the F18? I see people trying to give answers, but I'm not sure they are aware that there is a difference between the aircraft. Just curious, I worked on the Super when I was a plane captain in the Navy, so I think it would bee a cool addition for some of us. Picture included as reference.

Welcome to the forum

Eagle Dynamics stated that they have no plans doing a Rhino, but maybe a third party will do a Super Hornet at a later point. I agree with you, it would be a great addition nonetheless

IIRC, VRSim still has the exclusive rights from Boeing on the Rhino. But don't quote me on that.

Aww bummer... Thanks anyway! I wonder if there would ever be a way to implement the maintainers side of things into DCS. Carrier ops for us was pretty crazy too lol.

Give them 5-8 years 🙂 It will make it to DCS eventually, one way or another. The Legacy hornet was released for DCS not too long ago, so it's just unrealistic for ED to unvail the Super out of nowhere.

Even better, then there's hope to yet get a Rhino at some point and I was mistaken.
