1/48 F\A-18F Super Hornet - 04509

The Super Hornet is the latest US Navy fighter and attack aircraft. Shortly after going into service in 2002 it flew successful strike missions in Iraq. Most Tomcat fleet defence squadrons have now been equipped with the two-seat F/A-18 F variant in its role as air-superiority fighter. In addition to its fighter/bomber role the F version will also be used as a tanker. Through the use of laser guided bombs it can acquire enemy targets much more accurately and also has an extensive arsenal of the latest generation of guided missiles. The F/A-18 F is in practice a completely new aircraft. The whole airframe is 30% larger than that of the F/A-18 D. Further modifications include more powerful engines (GE F414 each with 98 kN thrust), more fuel capacity and a longer range, together with larger upgraded cockpit displays and the new APG-79 radar. Its operational radius for attack missions if 40% greater that that of its predecessor. 8 tonnes of weaponry, fuel tanks and ECM pods can be carried on 11 external hardpoints.
