    DCS F/A-18C

    So with ED bringing my beloved F/A-18C to DCS World my question is, is the 476th vFG going to have a squadron for the 18 as you do with the MiG? I ask because that would be fantastic. I'm a former Hornet seat mech and have been in love with this airframe my whole life. I would love nothing more than be in a virtual squadron of Hornets. And this vFG seems like it has the right mentality for me. With accurate training, flying, and weapon deployment as possible. I have a few ideas for it if this vFG is going to have a squadron of Hornets.

    I think 95% of the members are foaming at the mouth for a multi role fast jet. So yes I would say the probability of seeing a squadron here when the Hornet appears is right up against 100%. What it all boils down to is putting in the effort to write documentation and that the airframe can be supported by the group. We had a Ka-50 squadron but it just didn't hold up...not enough interest. But an F-18 would garner widespread appeal. So stick around another 5 years and when ED release it we will support it

    Oh and the 5% that aren't foaming at the mouth is just Stuka

    Good deal. I would be more than willing to help out with anything that I can. I have the NFM on my iPad and I'm trying to get the pocket checklist for normal ops. If you need any help let me know.

    I'm with Stuka, Low and slow is where it's at. Anyone can fly at 30,000 feet with all that thrust! But I'll still pick up the Hornet.

    Well I'm in the 95% with Baxter, don't get me wrong, I luv the A-10 and the low slow flying, but I'm an X race car driver and Speed gets me off big time, and the shape of the Hornet certainly makes it a sexy mutha focker, how could anyone not want to fly that beast?
    I'm gettin a hard on just thinkin about getting into the cockpit of that bird.

    Totally understandable, I meant once the game is released. I would be more than happy to help. The 18 is my baby!
