About DC Designs F/A-18 Super Hornet

This detailed simulation of the F/A-18E, F & G Super Hornetsfor FSX, FSX: Steam Edition and Prepar3D has been developed by DCDesigns' development team after extensive research.

The DC Designs F/A-18 Super Hornets have been modelled to anexceptional level of detail and feature a variety of high-definitionpaint schemes, realistic user-defined payloads (including guidedmissiles, rockets, bombs, external fuel tanks and reconnaissance pods)and detailed animations. Both the front and rear pilot positions areincluded, and the aircraft features a truly 3D virtual cockpit withsmoothly animated 3D instruments and custom-coded systems andavionics.


Full radio-navigation compatibility with SimWorks Studios' CEX aircraft carriers. Tune the relevant frequency, get a range and bearing, and navigate to a SWS aircraft carrier in any weather, day or night. No more time wasted hunting around the open ocean for somewhere to land!


  • Accurately modelled F/A-18E, F and E/A-18G Super Hornets, built using extensive research materials
  • Numerous external animations including canopy, crew ladder, launch bar, wing-fold, tail hook and control surfaces modelled to mimic the Super Hornet’s 'active' fly-by-wire systems. Custom animated afterburner flames and sonic shockwave effects
  • Animated, configurable front and rear pilots in the virtual cockpit, access steps and carrier deck tie-down chains
  • Bump and specular mapping used throughout the aircraft to produce a truly 3D feel
  • Authentic night lighting, including user operated 'slime lights' for darkened-deck and combat operations
  • Designed for competitive frame rates on all systems



  • A truly 3D virtual cockpit featuring accurately modelled ejector seats, controls and detailed texturing
  • Instruments constructed in 3D with smooth animations
  • Working rear-view mirrors (Prepar3D only)
  • 'Scratched canopy' glass effect
  • Optional pilot figures in virtual cockpit with knee-pads
  • Front and rear cockpit positions included


Aircraft Systems
