And F-18 too. A shame we did not ordered it in the 80's, would have been great for our fleet.

Might be wrong, but navy planes do bears the roundel on both wings, not on one in the US style.

A two tone like this super etendart looks good for a front line plane.

A little number of Rafale are now in service, and they entered it a few years ago. They were planed to join in the early 90's...

From the late 70's to the early 2000's, our fleet air arm lacked a modern fighters. The cruze was awesome, but hey, obsolete all the way. That's why a purchase of the F-18 was studied but some nationalist arguments made it fail. For 20 years, we had to keep the Cruze...

It's an old photo I found on Check six.

It dates back to when the eagle was evaluated by the Armée de l'Air in the late 70's, before the oil crisis, when France did not lack money and was willing to have an heavy interceptor: hence the F-15 trials and the Mirage 4000 project.

I think that would be a great skin a French Naval Hornet. Another sports car they missed out on. Those damn polititions always mukking up the guys trying to fly the cool planes. It happens all over the world. New Zealand and the f-16 fiasco, Australia and the loss of their naval carrier fleet in '84 tried to get Harriers got squashed oh well.

Unfortunately I don't.

The Mirage 4000 was a good plane, it would have been cool to have it.

Nevertheless I don't think there is such thing as shame to buy a foreign plane when one needs it (read: buy F-18) and can't provide it in a speedfull and efficient manner.

But, we must save rafale, and blablabla... So, more than 20 years of waiting for the Navy, and no modern fighter from the 80's to the 2000's.

The Skyhawk is a classy lady who always looks good, no matter what clothes she wears.

High visibility skin is almost done, just some details to fix, and decals to do (I'm waiting for ID numbers of the aircrafts) and it will be OK :

Low visibility skin still need t be work again...

And I've a question :

 

Should I release only skins sets or complete aircrafts (A4-T early and late) ?
