It has been a long journey. John and me with all of your support managed to build some really cool aircraft for our favorite game. This development process was demanding, interesting and even rewarding at same time. John & me are currently busy with some other projects that remain G14 classified however we have found a new owner for our mods.

Please welcome TeTeT - he will be looking after the future updates for F/A-18E. As promised this mod will stay free and available to all community to enjoy.

Special thanks' for assistance in development to: Franze, Gnat, Vengeance1, Iceman77, Rock & Lord Jarhead

This is not goodbye or us stepping down - this is us move on to new secret projects and regrouping before next battle...

The focus on this release for the SU-35E and F/A-18E/F is the integration into the Eden editor. You can now use a simple dropbox for selecting a loadout and changing the paint scheme within Eden. Further a problem with the GBU-38 and derived bombs was fixed, the autoSeekTarget option was removed as it caused massive slowdowns on Altis and Tanoa. Also the new ballistic computer settings for CCIP was added to the planes. Finally we integrated the values needed for Lesh's towing system.

Dear Myke, when I posted my comment they both said "DOWNLOAD FROM *hostname*", only after I posted did they show up as "Coming soon" :c

Now downloading from the very first link, thanks :)

Proper direct download link now in place. Rapid share is throttling and we don't like that.

@Eymerich: It is

@BusterBlader: There is, look under NATO/ Air/ FA18F

YAY! I don´t need AiA anymore to fly this beast over Stratis and Altis! Opfor is doomed as it´s going to rain cluster bombs over their guilties heads ;D

At first I saw the thread with a blah blah bla... I knew Saul was one of the developers of SuperHornet to A2, but it seemed like a taunt (over that discussion thread "Why A2 modders aren´t modding for A3") and then.. MAWN! Pickle surprise!

Kudos to Saul, Franze and John_Spartan! Cheers!

Download. Tested. Looks good.

How do you change the munitions? The PDF says something about a user interface, but I can't find anything.

@moerderhoschi - cool screens man, glad you like it. Give it a try in night with all formation markers and collision lights on.

@BadHabitz, UI will be included in next update, similar to one we have in A2 version. I am currently working on it. ETA next weekend.

Did some testing run...

First of all, again, Thanks for your work and this beatiful add-on.

Three short considerations:

1) when you start in the plane, the weapon is red (meaning no ammo)

2) the plane doesn't engagé enemy ground target (i tried it by myself: the enemy are showned on radar but i caould'nt target them);

3) This is only a matter of taste. IN any case, would you consider to remove the mirrors on the cockpit, since they don't seem so usefull while removing frame?

Apart this... Great work really..

@DrakeDearon, don't worry nobody is goanna pick on grammar here, myne is far from perfect as well

Je parle français mon ami. légion étrangère, à la retraite

@Eymerich

- first selected weapon is "MARSTER ARM SAFE" - dummy weapon place holder used as "SAFE" function to prevent accidental MP bomb drop on your team mates [believe it happens with some pilots]

- in arma 3 engine like in Ace in A2 to lock/engage you have to have clear line of sight and certain angle of attack on target to acquire lock. Wait until double diamond is showed = lock acquired

- mirrors are Render to texture, I'll look into option to make them nicer for those people who don't use this feature.

extremely nice work. small request if i may. ( lol and feel free to ask me to bugger off) I know for right now it would only be for cosmetic value, but would you consider making the jammer pods (one set goes on wing tips and the other type goes under wings) so that it is possible to have a EA-F18 Growler Variant? like i said small request that is only for looks ( but it would be sweet to have)

EA-18G_Growler is case you will actually consider it lol and need pictures of the jammer pods.

PS I totally understand if you dont have the time or want to make it. your work is amazing and i dont want to sound like an ingrate.
