FA-18X Black Wasp

F/A-18X Black Wasp
Version 0.93 BETA
by John_Spartan and Saul

The F/A-18X Black Wasp is a fictional, twin-engine carrier-based multi-role fighter aircraft variant based on the Boing F/A-18E Advanced Super Hornet. The aircraft features many advanced technologies and systems including semi- stealth capability, conformal fuel tanks, and enclosed weapons pods.

This project started as an upgrade to our previous project the F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet. We wanted to rebuild the aircraft from our previous version and give it a look befitting of Arma 3. John and I joined in on the Make Arma not War contest to test what we can do and decided that we should push the limits even more with the F/A-18's and thus came the F/A-18X Black Wasp. We have many great ideas and features planned for this aircraft and much to do. No matter the outcome we will deliver the best addon that we can deliver to the community.

- Upgraded model based on the Boeing F/A-18E Advanced Super Hornet

A blast from the past, one jet everyone loved. The Black Wasp II is definately a huge upgrade from this one.

Hope to see this mod get updated to Jets DLC funcitonality.
