Description

NOTE: This version is revised, with several minor improvements. The album above is of the new version, while the one below is of the deprecated version.
NOTE x2: I made even more revisions. The album above is technically deprecated, but there aren’t many more changes, other than angling the wing slots downward a little.


The F/A-18E Super Hornet, manufactured by Boing, is a multirole fighter jet capable of switching from air-to-ground attack mode to air-to-air attack mode in the flip of a switch! The backbone of the US Navy’s air force, it has served the United States for over forty years in both the Navy and the Marines (thought the Marines used the Legacy variant). It notably participated in several US operations in the Middle East.
A favorite of Naval aviators, this versatile and maneuverable fighter will continue to serve the Navy for at least another decade, even with its production ending in 2025.

…But enough about Earth’s shenanigans. You came here for the Kerbal version! This F/A-18 has gone through at least five variations and took hours of work and research, but it was all worth it, as this is the single best recreation I’ve ever made in my almost 900 (as of when I’m writing this) hours of KSP.
Being frankly unsatisfied with the F/A-18s on the craft-sharing market at the time, I set to work to make a functional but accurate fighter. Did I succeed? Other than it not being capable of reaching Mach 1 at level flight… yes!
This fighter has been a labor of love from me, and I hope you enjoy flying it as much as I do. The loadout of this aircraft include some AMRAAMs and Mavericks, but you can change it to pretty much anything you want.

Good luck, have fun, and remember to arm the ejection seat!
