The Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet, initially known as the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Super Hornet, is a multi-role twin-engine carrier-based fighter based on the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet produced by Boeing. It is an enlarged and advanced version of the Hornet’s F/A-18C and D.

Initially designed and produced by McDonnell Douglas, the Super Hornet first flew in 1995. Large-scale production began in September 1997, following the merger of McDonnell Douglas and Boeing the previous month. The Super Hornet entered service with the United States Navy in 1999, replacing the Grumman F-14 Tomcat, which was retired in 2006, and serves alongside the original Hornets.

The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) began using F/A-18As as its primary fighter aircraft in 1984, and also purchased the F/A-18F in 2007 to replace the aging F-111s. The Super Hornets entered service with the RAAF in December 2010.

It was ordered and delivered in 565 examples in the E and F versions for the United States Navy and in 24 examples of the F version for the Royal Australian Air Force. Recently it seems that the German Ministry of Defense is interested in purchasing 40 examples of the fighter to replace the Panavia Tornados.[4] It has an internal 20 mm M61A2 cannon, can load air-to-air missiles, air-to-surface missiles and bombs. It can load additional fuel in five external tanks, and can also be configured as an in-flight refueler.
