This is the year of Naval Aviation! Eagle Dynamics is opening pre-purchase of the F/A-18C for Digital Combat Simulation today. A couple of month after the AV-8B, this is the 2nd fully modeled carrier capable aircraft joining the collection. While the pre-purchasing doesn’t allow early access today, it has the benefit of a $20 discount, off the “regular” $79.99 price. The Early Access is announced for the end of Spring, with features and weapons being added over time.
