The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) T-45 Goshawk is a highly modified version of the British BAE Systems Hawk land-based training jet aircraft. Manufactured by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) and British Aerospace (now BAE Systems), the T-45 is used by the United States Navy as an aircraft carrier-capable trainer.
IndiaFoxtEcho - MilViz T45C Goshawk for MSFS2020
A new collaboration with Dino Cattaneo and IndiaFoxtEcho!
The T-45 Goshawk has its origins in the mid-1970s, during which time the U.S. Navy formally commenced its search for a new jet trainer aircraft to serve as a single replacement for both its T-2 Buckeye and A-4 Skyhawk trainers.During 1978, the VTXTS advanced trainer program to meet this need was formally launched by the U.S. Navy. An Anglo-American team, comprising British aviation manufacturer British Aerospace (BAe) and American aircraft company McDonnell Douglas (MDC), decided to submit their proposal for a navalised version of the land-based BAE Systems Hawk trainer.
Starting from 1991,the Goshawk has been used for intermediate and advanced portions of the Navy/Marine Corps Student Naval Aviator strike pilot training program with Training Air Wing One at Naval Air Station Meridian, Mississippi, and Training Air Wing Two at Naval Air Station Kingsville, Texas. The T-45 replaced the T-2C Buckeye intermediate jet trainer and the TA-4J Skyhawk II advanced jet trainer with an integrated training system that includes the T-45 Goshawk aircraft, operational and instrument flight simulators, academics, and training integration system support. In 2008, the T-45C also began operation in the advanced portion of Navy/Marine Corps Student Naval Flight Officer training track for strike aircraft with Training Air Wing Six at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida.

Due to the high-detail model and textures, we suggest to use the T-45C on systems that meet or exceed the following requirements:
CPU: 3.5GHz quad core processor or better
GPU: at least 4Gb dedicated memory, Nvidia 960 or better recommended
RAM: 8.0Gb minimum
Hard Disk: 1.8Gb required for installation
Highly detailed exterior model
Highly detailed cockpit model including instructor seat
Functional MFDs and HUD
(due to current SDK limitations, the HUD is not collimated. This can create minor problems during precision landings.)
Well behaved "Modern" flight model
(this model is tuned to work with the "Modern" flight model and may not work correctly with the Legacy flight model)
True to life checklists
Wwise sound package based on real-world recordings
