Toys and Models FA18E Super Hornet
The Boeing F/A18E Super Hornet is a carrierbased multimission strike fighter that entered service with the United States Navy (USN) in 1999. It is a larger and more advanced version of the night strike F/A18C/D Hornet. The Super Hornet provides the battle group commander with a platform that has range endurance and ordnance carriage capabilities comparable to those of the retired A6 Intruder. Ordered from McDonnell Douglas by the USN in 1992 the Super Hornet first flew in November 1995. It is informally referred to as the Rhino to distinguish it from earlier model legacy Hornets. Initial production began in 1995. Flight testing started in 1996 and ended in 1999. Testing involved 3 100 test flights covering 4 600 flight hours. The aircraft passed the Navys operational tests and evaluations in February 2000 and has replaced the A6 Intruder S3 Viking and KA6D. The Super Hornet is capable of performing a broad spectrum of roles including day/night strikes with precisionguided weapons antiair warfare fighter escort reconnaissance forward air control close air support suppression of enemy air defense (SEAD) maritime strike and airtoair refueling. The Navys Strike Fighter Squadron 115 was the first unit to bring their Super Hornets to combat. On November 6 2002 in support of Operation Southern Watch two F/A18Es conducted a Response Option strike on two surfacetoair missile launchers at Al Kut and an air defense command and control bunker at Tallil Air Base. It was the first time 2 000pound JDAM bombs were dropped from the F/A18E in wartime. During Operation Iraqi Freedom the Super Hornet flew close air support strike escort SEAD and aerial refueling roles.
