Hornet Update

Hornet development continues with focus on the INS/GPS-guided weapons like the JDAM and JSOW, new functions to the air-to-air radar that includes Latent Track While Scan (LTWS) and Multi-Sensor Integration (MSI), and smaller updates like SA page declutter, AIM-7 lofting logic, updated multi-target attack capability for INS/GPS-guided weapons, new HUD symbology like FEDS air-to-air gunnery SIM training mode that displays predicted gun round impact, corrected NVG rendering, and PRECISE coordinate entry for both the Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI) and INS/GPS-guided weapons.

The Hornet team has their nose to the grindstone working on the Litening targeting pod, the AGM-84D Harpoon anti-ship missile Bearing-Only Launch (BOL) to start, INS and GPS navigation and alignment, and Track While Scan (TWS) radar mode. Now at 25% off, it’s a great time to add the Hornet to your hangar if not already there.

Related to the Hornet, the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier is making fast progress with the new model and textures, radio communications, and animated deck crew. Later this summer we will be providing much more information about this exciting new module.

Open Beta Update

Today we released another update to the 2.5.5 Open Beta. Highlights include:

  • Improved canopy and cockpit door network synchronization for several modules
  • Corrected game crash when crashing aircraft with cargo still attached
  • F/A-18C: Added MSI for LTWS sub-mode, corrected loft function for the AIM-7, added declutter options for the SA page, and corrected waypoint coordinate entry bug
  • AV-8B Night Attack: UFC ALT functions now fully operational
  • Fw 190 A-8: Prop pitch can now be assigned to a controller

Please find the complete changelog here

Barring any major issues, we plan to move the Open Beta to the Release Build next week.
