This collection of kneeboards aims to go beyond NATOPS and CNATRA in explaining the CASE I/II/III and ACL procedures.
Most of the data comes from the exceptional guide by Pieter Ras that he created with support and approval from the real-world Hornet pilots. It should be a mandatory read for everyone doing carrier ops in DCS:

* Pieter's video on CASE I Cyclic Ops - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g60P1fzhcdY
A considerable effort has been made to keep the core things compatible with the Supercarrier and the multiplayer environment. While tailored for the F/A-18C, these kneeboards are, by and large, may be used with the Tomcat or Goshawk.
And for when you need to land ashore, there is an additional page dedicated to the overhead approach procedure.
