The F/A-18 Super Hornet is the most modern combat fighter aircraft in the US Navy and replaces the F-14 as well as the F/A-18C. Enemy targets can be attacked with significantly greater precision through the use of JDAM and Laser Guided Bombs . The F/A-18E also has an extensive arsenal of the latest generation of guided missiles at its disposal.
The Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornet single seater is a supersonic
fighter/ground-attack aircraft. The Super Hornet entered service with the United States Navy in 1999, replacing the F-14
Tomcat since 2006 and will serve alongside the original F/A18C Hornet.
The Super Hornet was ordered by the U.S. Navy in 1992 and
flew for the first time on 29 November 1995. Initial production
on the F/A-18E/F began in 1995. The Super Hornet underwent
U.S. Navy operational tests and evaluations in 1999, and was
approved in February 2000.
Despite having the same general layout and systems, the
Super Hornet differs in many ways from the original F/A-18
Hornet. The Super Hornet is informally referred to as the
„Rhino“ to distinguish it from earlier model „legacy“ Hornets
and prevents confusion in radio calls.
The U.S. Navy currently flies both the F/A-18E single-seater and
F/A-18F two-seater in combat roles, taking the place of the
retired F-14, A-6 Intruder, S-3 Viking, and KA-6D.
The Super Hornet is about 20% larger, 3,000 kg heavier empty,
and 6,800 kg heavier at maximum weight than the original
Hornet. The Super Hornet carries 33% more internal fuel,
increasing mission range by 40% over the „Legacy“ Hornet.
At the end of 2008, Boeing has delivered 367 Super Hornets to
the US Navy
