Comments -F/A-18 by Janes was released in January 2000. Jane's F/A-18 (JF18) is the successor to their magnificent F-15 simulation. It models the US Navy's next-generation F/A-18E Super Hornet in great detail. As the F/A designation suggests, the Super Hornet is built for both Fighter (Air-to-Air) and Attack (Air-to-Ground) missions. In this sim, you operate your F/A-18 from the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan in the Arctic Sea, flying missions over Russia's North Cape area. Notable Features
