Might I direct some of you to this feature request? It would certainly complement the upcoming F/A-18 rework, regardless of which variant you are currently supporting!

I’d like to add on.

I’ve been advocating for the 767 rework. Take a look show support in support of the KC-46 capable of aerial refueling F18s.

A feature I think would be pretty cool to add with the F/A-18 rework, that could be later implemented to other fighters, is a black-out/red-out feature that can only be seen in the cockpit camera view when you’re hitting those Gs. Of course the intensity of the black-out/red-out will depend on how much Gs you’re pulling and it would be something you can have on or off. It’s probably not going happen since I’ve seen other topics talking about this or related to this, but it would be a nice touch.

After last night’s fun flash flight to KDCA, this morning suddenly something came across my mind…

Can’t wait to join whatever exciting event coming our way with the premiere of the F/A-18, hosted by Dan on a Friday night! Yeah!

I just tried our existing legacy jet, not speeding up to FTL speed is hard and it’s just so agile at the same time, so staying calm behind the wheel’s gonna be a challenge for some, expect little to massive chaos on expert skies folks, GONNA BE GREAT! 🤣

This livery is pretty nice. Hope to see the 100th Anniversary of the Royal Canadian Air Force livery.

Looks like a screenshot from AC7

I’m yet to see an F18 WIP. Looks like the ejets are being worked on first. I don’t mind cause i like the ejets but I’m also trying to see the progress on the F18

The F-18 will be coming before the E-Jets. it was stated that it will in the roadmap devlopment blog. the E-jet varients were decided in house and so work could start on them earlier as the F-18 had the poll to have first before they could start work on the model. we will be getting the F-18 before them still so dont you worry !!

If I understand it correctly, the Ejets are worked on by a separate team.

The F/A-18 is scheduled to be released first.
