What is the F/A-18? The F/A-18 is one of the most advanced fighters in United States Military. It is one of the only fighters in US service with carrier landing abilities. It has revolutionized fighter aircraft abilities by making them able to land on ships at high speeds. Pilots who fly these birds Thechnically insects because Super Hornet Stuff. are respected throughout with the ability to fly so precisely, that they can land on a ship.

So what makes the F/A-18 so great? Simple, it can land on ships, be very maneuverable, be used for not only dogfighting but recon. The list goes on and on. F/A-18s are apart of Marine and Navy culture, with pilots learning, trusting, and mastering flight of these birds. The F/A-18 has proved itself a capable bird.

Who flies it? Some of the best-trained pilots have learned the ropes of these bad boys and have flown for years. Though it may be 30 years old, the F/A-18 and its pilots continue to fly strong.

Why is it so important? The F/A-18 has made the backbone of Navy Air Combat and has even sparked stunt and demo teams like the F/A-18 Demo Team and most notably, the Blue Angels. It even makes up entire Air Forces. Cough Cough @WestJet737767 and Canada


What’s the deal in Infinite Flight? The F/A-18 is one of the if not the oldest fighter aircraft in the game. It has made up the backbone of military groups and fighter roleplays. People would always fly them and back in 2014 and 2016, you would see them everywhere. Now only few fly them. Making them a rare sight.


In conclusion, the F/A-18 has proved to be a nimble, agile, and effective fighter. Many pilots all over have come to respect this aircraft and it will continue to protect our skies and oceans for years to come.

You must simple tag the beast to capture it.

If only someone would have created a feature suggestion to change that. That would be great, I guess. But who would do that? And if someone would do that, he or she wouldn’t share it here because it could be considered selfish to share an own topic below another one. Or would he? We’ll never know. If only…

Nice summary of the F/A 18 btw!

Cough… EA6

I dont count that as a fighter haha more counter air… but we all get the point of the 18 not being the only fast air, and certainly not the first to revolutionise carrier landings or make demo teams…
