DCS F/A-18C Hornet


Recommended Posts

La verdad es que después de tantos años esperando al Hornet nos han colado un módulo que están programando sobre la marcha. Este año dudo que veamos el radar A/G y posiblemente no lo veamos hasta bien metidos en el año que viene. Para que luego digan que otros desarrollos no han afectado a este módulo LOSCOJ@%&$!!


Aunque tampoco me quejo de hacer de beta tester del módulo como todos, creo que le sacamos entre todos los fallos más rápido.


Seguramente luego puedan hacer copia y pega a otros módulos made in USA... una pena que no puedan hacer pata negras de los Rusos o Chinos.

Update time!

As mentioned in a recent newsletter, we are pushing hard for JHMCS with AIM-9X support, Maverick, FPAS page, and corrected A/A antenna logic after undesignated button lock release. All is looking good, but the AGM-65F and G versions will unfortunately not be ready until next month. 

We, for the most part, have four guys working on Hornet systems and here is what they are working on:
1- JHMCS. Afterward he moves on to the HARM.
2- AGM-65E. Once done, then AGM-65F and G.
3- A/A radar antenna. When complete, then LTWS.
4- FPAS page. Then after that, then probably “soft lock” IFF or Data Link / SA page.

The Hornet systems team is working full time on the Hornet, but some of the items are complex and take time. No one is slacking off.

Once the Maverick and HARM are fully functional, we’ll start work on the second Hornet mini-campaign.

We have ten new training missions in work that include:
IFR Airfield Approach
Carrier Taxi and Takeoff
Carrier CASE I Recovery
A/A Gun
A/G Gun
CCIP Bombs
CCRP Bombs

You may be saying to yourself, “but Wags, you forgot CASE II,III and AIM-7!” Negative Ghostrider, we need those items to be completed before we can make the training mission for them (full comm for CASE II,III and HOJ mode for the Sparrow). 

Supporting tech like the A/G radar (we lost our original engineer on this) and an improved FLIR rendering system are in work and are fundamental to A/G radar implementation and the ATFLIR.

So things are moving forward at a good clip, but this is a very complex product and it will take time.

Thank you for your patience!

Mala pinta para el radar a-g, y el link16... 


Un saludo.

Hombre no sé hasta qué punto tenían avanzado el radar ag, pero tenían prototipos hace ya años, así que supongo que tampoco lo deja en pañales, aunque obviamente acarreará un retraso notable. 


Bueno poco a poco. Operacionalmente es más crítico el ATFLIR y el Link 16 en mi opinion

Una pena

La verdad es que mucho de lo que desarrollan y sacaran con el F/18 es nuevo en DCS (HARM, el radar A/G, etc), así que tardaran un tiempo hasta que salgan y estén libres de bugs. Paciencia toca

Yo también opino que antes del radar A/G prefiero tener un LINK16 y ATFLIR en condiciones.
Por ejemplo, solo con el Link16 en A/A podrías saber donde están los "amigos" y a quien hace lock tu compañero

Hornet Mini-Update 10-28-2018


After extenstive testing, the A/A radar break lock errors look to be fixed. A side-benefit of the revisited core-antenna logic is that the ACM modes lock much faster now (VACQ in particular). This is planned for release in the next OB update.

JHMCS AIM-9X cueing is also testing well (VR recommended). But display of radar-locked target data to the HMD needs further testing.

FPAS page needs a bit more work on the NAV TO function. 

Team is plugging away at the L Mav.

Once I'm happy with the above features, I'll create a new Hornet update video to explain each one.




Un saludo.

Parece que esta semana tendremos el update prometido.
Le preguntan que si es el único video que sacara antes del update, y el responde que no. Y que vendrán todos esos



 - "Will this be the only feature video you release before this weeks open beta update?"
 - "No. JHMCS, FPAS, laser Maverick, radar range auto-centering, and corrected radar b-sweep."
