If it only carried the Phimat that would be Chaff only.

"* An updated countermeasures suite, most significantly including a state-of-the-art Thales Sherloc P RWR with rectangular antennas on the front and back of the tailfin, replacing the “spike” antennas of the old BF RWR.

Since pylon-mounted external defensive countermeasures pods are usually relatively lightweight, a new stores pylon was added to each wing inboard of the existing stores pylons, just forward of the extended main landing gear, solely for countermeasures pods – such as the Barracuda NG (New Generation) RF jammer and the Alkan LL 5081 chaff-flare dispenser. The Alkan LL 5081 had a capacity of 90 40-millimeter cartridges or 40 60-millimeter cartridges. Most significantly, the entire countermeasures system was integrated to permit automatic operation of a jammer or flare dispenser pod when the RWR identified a threat."


That’s quite high for something that can’t go mach 2

Maybe it should be separated into 4 versions

-SUE (OG one, only magic, no flares)
(SEM S1 to 3 doesn’t bring enough to be cool)
-SEM S4 ( above + magic II, flares and ATLIS)
-SEM S5 ( above with Damocles and E-Pavs)
-SEM S5+ (gets RUBIS FLIR on R0 instead of a flare pod)

Maybe S4+ is ok too (S4 with Damocles but not at S5 standard yet = no E-Pavs) as a premium variant
S5+ could go there as well tbh

To be fair anything under S4 has been DoA since flares/chaff update… unless it is placed at 9.3 (and only one SUE that qualifies is Super Etendard prototype 1 aka Etendard IV M n68 with the engine of a SUE and the attack system of a Jaguar, until its carrier trial which gave the radar but not the wings as well )


I guess Super Etendard Modernise (SEM) standard 1 maybe 2nd event vehicle or first premium golden eagle at rank VI, Super Etendard Modernise (SEM) standard 3 might be tech tree rank VII

Super Etendard Modernise (SEM) standard 4 as a premium or 1st event vehicle in rank VIII, and Super Etendard Modernise (SEM) standard 5+ good strike aircraft 11.7 toptier at rank VIII

im not entirely sure, since this comes only from a single pic and some unconfirmed mentions, but the Argentine Navy SUE had some sort of flares fitted to them.

Would love to see the Super E in game


Does anyone know if the plane can carry 2 Exocets or if it is limited to one only?

What is this?

Enhanced Paveways (adds GPS lock)

Looks like leak list is true, we’re getting Super Etendard.

Finally,… should have been there before Mirage 2000-5F IMO,…


Should have been there before a great many things… I don’t expect stellar performances to be honest. These aircrafts with 1980’s armament and 1960’s performances are always hard to balance… AKA they always get screwed over.

I don’t know Super Etendard from leak maybe Super Etendard Modernise (SEM) standard 3 or standard 5 ?


even those variants aren’t able to do lot,… Air-Air wise → only 2x Magic-2 and Guns

It would be great news to have the Super-Etendard. Whatever its standard, by the way 🤗

Just give me Exocet and I’ll be happy.

With the Super-Etendard we would have to add a French aircraft carrier of the PA 54 class (Clemenceau or Foch) contemporary with the Forrestal aircraft carrier already in the game. We would thus have a small air group on board with the Etendard IVM and the F8E- FN. That’s good! the 100mm model 1953 turrets are already modeled. I’m sorry I’m daydreaming…😶‍🌫️😢
