Captain Sim was contracted by ACES Studio to create the models for the Acceleration F/A-18, so they decided to release a few advanced models with loadouts and animations.

It comes with a load manager as well as an animation manager, so you can add/remove the weapons while in flight or on the runway, and the weapons are drawn on in realtime. Same with the animations, just click the button and watch the ammo belt roll out, etc.

Its a pretty cool package, but costs $30. I was dissapointed to find out the afterburner effects are not the same as the default F/A-18, as Captain Sim uses thier own AB effects. The problem with this is the multistage AB was a key feature, and with the CS models, the AB is either on or off, with no stages.
