F/A-18A Hornet USN 1/48
 

The F/A-18 Hornet is a single seat or a tandem seat aircraft designed for the US Navy and US Marine Corps. The F/A-18 Hornet can operate from either aircraft carriers or land bases. The F/A-18 Hornet aircraft had diverse roles, such as a fighter escort, suppressing enemy air defenses, reconnaissance, forward air control, close and deep air support and day and night strike missions. Since 1986, the F/A-18 Hornet was used for the aerial demonstration for the Blue Angels. The versatility of the aircraft proved that the F/A-18 Hornet is a valuable asset.

The F/A-18 Hornet aircraft has many features -- a digital control by wire flight control system and a solid thrust to weight ratio and superior turn characteristics with energy sustainability. Moreover, the F/A-18 Hornet was also considered as the Navy’s first tactical jet aircraft to integrate a digital MUX bus architecture for the entire system’s avionics suite. The F/A-18 Hornet is said to be the first tactical aircraft designed to carry out both air to air and air to ground missions. It was used by the US Navy, US Marine Corps, and the Air Forces of Canada, Australia, Spain, Kuwait, Finland, Switzerland and Malaysia.
