F/A-18 C also carries ground-mapping radar with a Doppler sharpening mode to generate ground maps in poor visibility conditions. The C’s arsenal includes the AIM-120 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM), and AGM-65E/F Maverick air-to-ground missiles. Our kit also features laser-guided bombs, 330 gallon auxiliary fuel tank, and other refinements. The F/A-18 Hornet is one awesome attack fighter. On the first day of Operation Desert Storm, two Hornets engaged and shot down two Iraqi MiGs, then proceeded to deliver eight 2,000 lb bombs to their targets. Throughout the Gulf War, Hornets operated around the clock, setting records daily in reliability, survivability, and ton-miles of ordnance delivered. The F/A-18 also serves the Air Forces of Australia, Canada, Finland, Kuwait, Malaysia, Spain, and Switzerland.
