The McDonnell Douglas FA-18 RC Hornet is a twin-engine supersonic, all-weather carrier-capable multirole combat jet, designed as both a fighter and attack aircraft (hence the F/A designation). Designed by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) and Northrop, the F/A-18 was derived from the latter's YF-17 in the 1970s for use by the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The Hornet is also used by the air forces of several other nations and, since 1986, by the U.S. Navy's Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels.


It was flown by the H.A.W.X. squadron until its disbandment in 2014. During one mission, they engaged Mexican Rebels attacking a Ghost Recon team.

Artemis Global Security also flew it, sending multiple ones on an attack against President Daniel Sullivan.

After the conflict ended, Arrow flew one in an attack against a DDI facility in conjunction with a helicopter drone.

The reformed H.A.W.X. Flight used three of them off the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt to recapture an offshore oil well. They later protected the defecting Russian pilot Dmitri Sokov in F-18s.


It is the recommended plane for Operation: Iron Arrow.
