DCS: F/A-18C Hornet is a twin engine, supersonic fighter developed by Eagle Dynamics SA. It 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.
The Hornet 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 Hornet 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.
The Hornet 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 Hornet to allow you to experience the real feeling of power and extreme capabilities this aircraft has to offer.
