    About DC Designs F/A-18 Super Hornet

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

    The DC Designs F/A-18 Super Hornets have been modelled to an exceptional level of detail and feature a variety of high-definition paint schemes, realistic user-defined payloads (including guided missiles, rockets, bombs, external fuel tanks and reconnaissance pods) and detailed animations. Both the front and rear pilot positions are included, and the aircraft features a truly 3D virtual cockpit with smoothly animated 3D instruments and custom-coded systems and avionics.

    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!

    Model

    • 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
