F/A-18C Development Progress.

27 May 2022

Dear Fighter Pilots, Partners and Friends,

It is with pleasure that we give all owners of DCS: F/A-18C Hornet and DCS: F-14 Tomcat some inspiring new liveries now available in the latest Open Beta. We are excited to see what you will use them for!

As we continue work on the Hornet roadmap, we are adding the AIM-7P air-to-air radar-guided missile. This is a similar missile to the AIM-7M but with an increased blast fragmentation warhead from 39 kg to 40 kg. We are also working on the ADM-141A Tactical Air Launched Decoy (TALD), and we encourage you to stay tuned for the next update.

The DCS: F-14 Tomcat is now available as part of the Maverick Legacy Bundle. This weekend only, you can land a valuable 35% saving. Please note that this offer ends on the 29th of May at 15:00 GMT. Another “Be the Maverick” bundle is also available and combines DCS: Supercarrier with DCS: F/A-18C Hornet with 30% savings.

Thank you for your passion and support.

Yours sincerely,

Eagle Dynamics

Development Progress

We are working on the next update for the Hornet and are happy to announce that the AIM-7P and ADM-141 TALD will be released in the next Open Beta update. We are currently finalizing sparks when firing the gun at night, and have crushed many of the multiplayer mission bugs which were apparent when several Supercarriers are in the mission.


The AIM-7P is similar in most ways to the M versions. It was primarily an upgrade program. The main changes were to the software and improving low-level performance. A follow-on Block II upgrade added a new rear receiver that allowed the missile to receive mid-course corrections from the launching aircraft. Plans initially called for all M versions to be upgraded, but currently P's are being issued as required.


Used to help suppress Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) systems by distracting them with false targets. TALDs can also trick hostile radars into emitting and allowing them to be attacked by Anti-Radiation missiles. They can also be used to confuse hostile air-to-air radar operators. In the first Gulf War, hundreds were launched by A-7s and F/A-18s on the first night of the war. An additional purpose is to act as a target practice for radar-guided air-to-air missiles. In the above screenshot you can see a Hornet carrying TALDs to act as AIM-7 practice targets.
