Forces of Valor 85102 US Navy McDonnell Douglas F/A-18F Super Hornet Strike Fighter - VFA-41 "Black Aces", NAS Lemoore, California (1:72 Scale)

"First to Fight, First to Strike."
- Motto of VFA-41 "Black Aces"

The F/A-18 Hornet is the true multi-role aircraft. It can vault from a carrier deck, bomb a target and stay to dogfight even the best enemy aircraft without missing a beat. It's the Navy's first modern-era jet intended for double duty against air- and ground-based adversaries. Armed to the hilt with Sparrow and Sidewinder air-to-air missiles, an internal cannon, and laser-guided bombs, this modern warbird was an outstanding performer in Operation Desert Storm. Strapped into a digital cockpit described as a cross between Star Wars and a video game, pilots of the F/A-18 Hornet take on the ultimate avaition job: blasting this single-seat, high-performance jet off the deck of a carrier, dropping bombs, and firing air-to-ground ordnance. Offering unmatched agility, the Hornet is the choice aircraft of the US Navy's elite Blue Angels aerobatic team.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of a USN F/A-18F Super Hornet Strike Fighter that was attached to VFA-41 "Black Aces", then deployed to NAS Lemoore, California. Now in stock!
