    Anyone know if the F/A-18C can see a FLIR image on the HUD like the F-15E? That would be damn cool for night missions in DCS.

    Not that I've seen, no. Although you can have the NAVFLIR image on the MFD if you're carrying the pod.

    I guess that would be kind of similar to trying to fly whilst looking through an AGM-65D seeker though. Unless the NAVFLIR MFD screen has pitch markings and a FPM similar to the HUD?

    I don't think the Charlie can, the Super Hornet can project a NFLR image on the HUD. I'm not sure if it also is applicable with an ATFLIR pod....

I've read this story from numerous sources. Regardless of its source the wiki synopsis, albeit a brief one, is factual as I know it.
