This time around we feature Boeing BAE T-45C Goshawk created by Dino Cattaneo, Jivko "Neutrino" Rusev and Scott Printz, and Serge "fsxnavypilot" Lsa. The T-45C Goshawk is a heavily modified version of the Bae Hawk single engine jet trainer, adapted to aircraft carrier ops. This package contains an entirely new visual model with self shadowing, bump mapping and hi-res textures, working virtual cockpit, 3D gauges and reasonably accurate flight model.
The T-45 Goshawk is a fully carrier-capable version of the British Aerospace Hawk Mk.60. It was developed as a jet flight trainer for the United States Navy (USN) and United States Marine Corps (USMC).
The Hawk had not originally been designed to perform carrier operations; accordingly, numerous modifications were required to produce a suitable aircraft for such use, such as the extensive strengthening of the airframe, which had been necessitated in order to withstand the excessive forces imposed by the stresses involved in catapult launches and high sink-rate landings, both scenarios being routine in aircraft carrier operations.
