The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) has received an additional five new F/A-18F Super Hornets at RAAF Base Amberley, Queensland, Australia.

The delivery forms part of the 24 Boeing advanced block II versions of the Super Hornet equipped with the Raytheon-built APG-79 active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar.

RAAF group officer commanding 82 Wing Captain Steve Roberton said, “The Super Hornet is going to be a true force multiplier for us, with its ability to seamlessly transmit data offboard from its advanced sensors to our classic Hornets.

“As each new Super Hornet arrives at Amberley, the overall capability of our air force continues to expand,” he added.

The latest delivery expands the RAAF’s fleet of the advanced multirole fighters to 20.
