CF-18


CF-18 is Canada's current multirole single seat fighter aircraft based on the FA-18, they were first put into service in 1982 and featured many upgrades from the FA-18A which they were based on.

You might want to consider creating some year specific aircraft to include the modernisation programs the CF-188 went through in recent years. Personally I have split it into three separate aircraft:

 

‘AircraftFullName=CF-18 Hornet’ -which is the initial aircraft and covers the period from delivery up till 2006.

 

‘AircraftFullName=CF-18 Hornet IMP Phase I (03)’ -Which replaces the AN/APG-65 radar with the AN/APG-73 radar (you can use the avionics from the 'C' model Hornet for this), ability to use JDAMs and AMRAAMs. This covers the period from 2003 to 2007

 

‘AircraftFullName=CF-18 Hornet IMP Phase II (07)’ – Integration of the Joint Hemet Mounted Cuing System, ability to carry the Sniper XR targeting pod and an upgrade of the aircrafts ECM jammers. This aircraft covers the period from 2007 till 2017+.

 

There are overlaps in the operational dates due to the time each upgrade program took to do the entire fleet of hornets.

 

If you interested in including these later upgraded versions let me know and I’ll email a copy of mine to you. The mod I used as the base for all these versions is the CF-18 that came with the SF2 NATO fighters mod.

dtmdragon:

 

Why not put a package together with all three versions that you've assembled and upload it here?

 

I'm sure many would appreciate it.

Hey dtmdragon that sounds awesome......I mean what Eric said........ A more historically correct version of the CF-18 would be really cool and it would be great if you allready have that package together to release it. To be honest, the only reason I put this plane together was because I needed it for a campaign that I am working on that really required a CF-18......and I was thinking about uploading the campaign to share, but there needed to be an available Canadian bug so I put this out there in advance of the campaign.

Hello,

 

Many thanks for your SF2 CF-18A Mod! :salute:

 

A 'historical' package would be very good... :clapping:

 

Two years ago I tried to create the specific 'interception light' of the CF-18 near the 'nose' of this bird!

 

It is Activated with Ctrl + L in the game.

 

What do you think about this function which could be improved?

 

Bye bye,
