To get here and finally upload this aircraft has taken a grand total of 10 months. Started a time BJSB.

BJSB = Before Jim1The1Squid Ban.

I would like to thank a lot of people on this project, too many names to mention but I will point out my stars.

Collaborators

These collaborators are the people who have helped me from day 1 and I thank them gratefully.

Now there are a lot of people who have contributed but I can't thank them all specifically, so to all of you in the SP community. I thank you all.

Now, the one person who helped me a lot, edensk, I thank you ever so much for all your endless help and feedback. I'm sorry I couldn't make it as good as you wanted it to be but I found satisfaction in my work.

Another thank you to FlagsWorldwide for sacrificing his time to make a Rose Emblem for the F/A-18C.

Notices

This aircraft has a tendency to lose control when suddenly pitching down at low speeds, I didn't get time to implement the needed FT code to prevent that.

The M61 has 578 rounds and a reload period of 1 minute, we didn't want to ruin the fun with no reloads :)

All the weapons are XML edited to fit real life specifications of their respective names.

I tried my best to build this aircraft to blueprint but there may be some innaccuracies.

Rose Emblem on the tail by FlagsWorldwide, adapted by Shadowed, emphasised by Thelegitpilot13 for use.

Here is a forum post you have to read to know more about this F-18.

Special thanks to Blue0Bull for flight system redesign and edensk for Vertical Yaw Stab's, let's not forget that Armament by WarHawk_95

Pictures

Not all of these are taken by me.






I am deciding what to build next other than another Hornet, the choices are -

  1. F14 Tomcat
  2. F-15E Strike Eagle
  3. F16C Viper
  4. M1 Abrams
  5. Su-27 Flanker
  6. MiG-33 Super Fulcrum

I thank you all once again and peace out.

    @OneTwo Yeah true they are quite different, but i was saying it should be easy for you to upgrade it since they just look very similar, also can you link me to your forums please?

    @huskoidium100 also the A/C and E variants are almost nothing alike, they only share the same name and similarities in design. Everything from the flight dynamics to the gear is different
