VNAO - Virtual Naval Air Operations



March 2014
An email update today featured this bit of news: “While we continue to update several of our existing aircraft like the F-15C, Su-27, Su-33 and MiG-29, the team is also hard at work on new aircraft including the Fw-190 and F/A-18C Hornet.
September 2013
During discussion at the ED Forums about the DCS F/A-18C Matt ‘Wags’ Wagner stated: “Honestly, I would not expect any news on Hornet until this time next year at the earliest.”

9/25/2013 Update highlights:
“Throughout the past few months we have been hard at working developing Coretex Designs and the F/A-18E project. Through our journey we have had to remove members, and gain new members.


The EFM (External Flight Model) is now at a point in it's stages where we'll be handing over the module to our testers to receive their input. One of the highlights of the EFM is our very own FCS (Flight Control Systems). By the time the final build of our module is published the FCS will have a mind of its own.



The current status of our cockpit is that modeling, and animations are complete. We are still working on texturing, and scripting most of the cockpit functions. In the video below you can see that we have a functional HUD, EFD, and UFCD. Our L/R DDI's, and MPCD are still being scripted.
Now, if you are wondering about our cockpit textures I can assure you they will look nothing like what they look like now in the final module. We are bringing on a very popular cockpit texture artist from the forums in the upcoming weeks that will start turning this cockpit into a beauty.

Side Project- CVN-77 USS GEORGE H.W. BUSH

We currently have a side project that we'd like to share with everyone today. We are still in the very early stages of development but I'm glad to say that we are now developing the CVN-77 Carrier for DCS.


We are currently in the modeling/texturing stages. We hope you have truly enjoyed this new update that we have released today. We will be releasing new, and regular updates from now on. Please feel free to contact us through any of the following networks. Thank you!”
