Absolutely fantastic Arma 3 mod. When combined with the ITC Air, CBA-A3 and ACE3 mods, it is, without a doubt, the best jet mod in the entire series of Arma.

How long before you fix the F version of the plane? In my clan we still have to use Firewill's F-15s for double pilot mission's :/

The one issue with this is that the meatball system says that 250kph is the right speed, But you can be in the middle of the carriers meatball and be at that speed but you are gonna just float right over because the plane can stay in the air at that speed easily.
