The VRS F/A-18F "Rhino" is the culmination of many years of research, modeling, texturing and state of the art developmental techniques. This is a 2-seat variant of the Super Hornet with selectable rear-seat configurations for trainer and RIO stations. Rhino is destined to be our finest work yet and will feature meticulously crafted PBR materials throughout.
The Rhino will be released first for P3D v4+. Because FS2020 has licensing limitations with regard to weapon systems (and military aircraft in general), it is not known when, if at all the Rhino will be available for that platform. FSX will likely not be supported by Rhino.
Preorders for P3D v4+ are available for those who wish to support our development efforts (and save a few bucks). Delays are inevitable, and COVID-19 has had a significant impact on our work efforts for various reasons, so please be patient.
Note that this project has been in development for a LONG time and will continue to be in development for some time. We cannot even give an estimate at this point because there is still much to do. If you're not prepared for that, or are tired of waiting, we are happy to refund you. About the only thing I CAN guarantee is the the retail price at release is liable to be close to 3x the preorder price due to diminished P3D sales in the wake of FS2020
The F/A-18F Rhino has dozens of unique features, many of which have never been available in any FSX/P3D aircraft, and remain exclusive to this day. Some features require TacPack, while many are standard. Wherever possible, TacPack-specific features are called out separately, but in general these range from live weapons to air-to-ground radar and FLIR video.
