Top Gun: Maverick DLC

Test your limits in the F/A-18 Super Hornet

Do you want to know how quickly the ground shoots out from under you when you fly fast? Then attempt the Mach Loop. You can fly at high speeds through a series of interconnected valleys in Wales (United Kingdom), as the Royal Air Force (RAF) does during training exercises.

Or test your skills during a landing on an Aircraft Carrier such as the USS Enterprise (free download for Windows PC). Make sure your tailhook hooks behind the arrestor cable by flying at the right speed and angle of descent. Not an easy task, but practice makes perfect!
