Matt Wagner posted an update to the Eagle Dynamics Facebook page today with the first of what will be many episodes dedicated to the details, systems, weapons and features of the DCS: F/A-18C Hornet.
We get to see the overall layout of the F/A-18 cockpit and just a hint of some of the features and systems that you can interact with inside. Matt’s also really thorough and detailed as to how the aircraft is constructed and what features do what. I know a lot about the Hornet already having been a fan of this aircraft for many years (and taken many photos of the yearly CF-18 demo flights) but even I learned some stuff in there.
Finally we get to see a landing on a Nimitz class aircraft carrier. I’m not sure if this is the same Nimitz-class that has previously been in DCS or if its also been upgraded. It’s widely expect that the Hornet won’t just bring with it the aircraft itself but also a fairly detailed study of carrier operations and the carrier to do that with is of course the Nimitz-class.
