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+, followed by FS2020. Because FS2020 will require completely re-written avionics, and likely significant changes and/or additions to existing materials, we estimate the FS2020 version may be in development until well into 2021. As with our previous releases, P3D and FS2020 versions will be licensed and sold separately. These are distinctly different platforms both with unique requirements that preclude cross-compatibility/cross-buy. FSX will not be supported by Rhino.
Preorders for the P3D version (which will include P3D v4 through the latest version of P3D at the time of release), will be available for those who wish to support our development efforts (and save a few bucks). Preorders for the FS2020 version will not take place until some time after the P3D release, as it's impossible for us to fully anticipate completion time at this point.
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.
