“A versatile fighter that use its scorching speed to whip through the air while its attacks suppress troops and buildings”

General Information[]

The FA-18 Hornet is an Event Troop from Events, Chest or Sales that can be used as Troop Tactics. They are excellent for taking down hordes of enemy units such as are Heavy Infantry and Heavy Cavalry.

Historical Description[]

When the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet entered service in 1983, it became the U.S. military's first offical strike fighter. This indicated that if fulfilled both fighter and attack-aircraft roles per its 'F/A' designation, able to hit targets in the air or on the ground. Its versatility was famously proven on the first day of Operation Desert Storm. When a Hornet squadron on a bombing run recived word that Iraqi fighters were inbound, they switched into air-to-air mode, downed the enemy bandits, then successfully completed their mission.

Following a somewhat troubled development cycle, the initial F/A-18 model was considered almost the ideal strike fighter among its oerators in the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. Later variants improved on its only real weakness, limited operational range. Digital 'fly-by-fly' controls and a heads-up display made the Hornet notably easier to fly than earlier aircraft. Around 1,500 have been produced for America and her allies. The Navy finally retired their Hornets in 2018, to be replaced by next-gen "Super Hornets," but the Marines intend to keep theirs in service until the 2030s.
