Our F/A-18C is the culmination of more than 40 man years of intense research, technology development, art creation, and ground-breaking coding. The F/A-18C brings the first, true, multi-role fighter to the skies of DCS World with equally impressive air-to-surface and air-to-air capabilities.
DCS: F/A-18C is initially being released as Early Access, with several features to be added during the Early Access period. This includes several sensors, weapons, and sub-systems.
About the DCS: F/A-18C
The F/A-18C is twin engine, supersonic fighter that is flown by a single pilot in a "glass cockpit". It combines extreme maneuverability, a deadly arsenal of weapons, and the ability to operate from an aircraft carrier. Operated by several nations, this multi-role fighter has been instrumental in conflicts from 1986 to today.
The F/A-18C is equipped with a large suite of sensors that includes a radar, targeting pod, and a helmet mounted sight. In addition to its internal 20mm cannon, the F/A-18C can be armed with a large assortment of unguided bombs and rockets, laser and GPS-guided bombs, air-to-surface missiles of all sorts, and both radar and infrared-guided air-to-air missiles. This results in amazing gameplay potential with this single aircraft.
The F/A-18C is also known for its extreme, slow-speed maneuverability in a dogfight. We have gone to great lengths to model the flight aerodynamics and fly-by-wire flight control system of the F/A-18C to allow you to experience the real feeling of power and extreme capabilities this aircraft has to offer. Although incredibly deadly, the F/A-18C is also a very easy aircraft to fly.
Being an aircraft carrier capable aircraft, our F/A-18C also comes with a free aircraft carrier. Catapult from the "boat", strike a large assortment of targets that only DCS can offer, then "call the ball" and land on the carrier. DCS: F/A-18C in DCS provides the most rich and authentic digital combat aviation you will ever experience!
