History

Strangereal

The Super Hornet had seen very limited use. They were first known to have been deployed during the Emmeria-Estovakia War. A notable pilot was Estovakian ace Vaslav Reynek, callsign Dama, as well as Emmeria's Avalanche Squadron.[1]

Super Hornets continued to be fielded in the Osea-Erusea Conflict, the extent of which is currently unclear.[2]

Trivia

  • In Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, the F/A-18F's Color 3's trim color is a special shade of gold that is not otherwise available in the color palette. If the player makes a new skin based off of Color 3 and changes the gold trim, they cannot restore it without making a new custom skin.
  • The initial images of the F/A-18F in Ace Combat 7 showed the words "NAVY" and "USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT" on the fuselage. These markings were later removed, as evidenced in the VR Demo and 2016 trailer.
