Fighting Omars F/A-18D Hornet US Navy VFC-12 2019 Hobby Master HA3553 scale 1:72 Highly detailed model airplane Scale: 1:72 The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F/A-18 Hornet is a supersonic twin engine all-weather night fighter and attack aircraft. The F/A-18s first flew in November 1978 and the first production flight on April 12, 1980. The first 380 aircraft were F/A-18As and in September 1987 production switched to the F/A-18C. Variants A and C are single-seat aircraft while B and D are tandem-seats. The Hornet can operate from either aircraft carriers or land bases with the capability of in flight refueling. A total of 1,480 A-D variants were built. VFC-12 “Fighting Omars” is a USN Reserve fighter squadron that acts as adversaries for the USN and USMC. In 1994 VFC-12 received the F/A-18A/B Hornet with the F/A18As being upgraded to the F/A-18A+ in 2004. The upgrade consisted of improved mission avionics compatible with the F/A-18C variants. F/A-18A+ aircraft are able to carry AIM-120 missiles, JDAMs and JSOWs while F/A-18As aren’t. In 2006 VFC-12 transitioned to the F/A-18C only to transition back to the F/A-18A+ in 2012. That year saw the usual adversary blue paint replaced with the SU-35 Flanker Prototype 2 Arctic Splinter Camouflage.
