Jane's F/A-18 is another must-have for the joint military air power enthusiast. From a systems, planning, tactics, doctrine and reference perspective, It has about the level of simulation detail of Jane's F-15. It also teaches the virtual pilot about Naval operations and gives us an idea of how the Navy is able to project power across the globe. Jane's F/A-18 has an upgraded 3D engine from the F-15 product, supporting higher resolutions. It also has a "clickable" 3D virtual cockpit. At the time of its release (early 2000), you needed a very beefy Pentium III (or early AMD Athlon processor, if you were lucky enough to afford one) and a 16 MB Direct3D video card such as an nVidia Riva TNT, TNT2 or the first GeForce card (called the GeForce 256) to run the sim with decent frame rates. F/A-18 runs best in Windows 9X/ME/2000 and XP, and the official patch is highly recommended. With considerable effort using DxWnd, Jane's F/A-18 *will* run in Windows 10, but I highly recommend an old Windows 98/98SE or Windows XP Pentium 4 machine with a GeForce 4-era GPU. Like the other Jane's Combat Simulations, it is a real treat to own a physical boxed copy with the manuals, reference cards, etc. You can still find the manual and reference card online. Take the time to read through the manual and work through the training missions. Obviously, you need a joystick, and the Logitech Extreme 3D pro is quite useful if you don't have a sophisticated set of USB flight controls. This is a very detailed representation of the F/A-18E (at the time) and has a steep learning curve for those who are used to "arcade quality" flight simulation products. It takes practice, patience, and a strong willingness to learn. Like a real aircraft, if you don't touch this product for a while, you "lose currency" and it takes time to re-learn everything. Despite its age, I would still recommend this to anyone considering a career as a Naval officer/aviator.

Why does your downloads of Jane's F-15 and Jane's F/A-18say they are for windows?
When one tries to download either of these, It shows (.ios) version. This is an extension for an Iphone OS. How do you get the windows versions on your web page.
