Publisher Comments:

The first installment examining the US Hornet Units' participation in Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-present). The F/A-18 Hornet in its various guises was the 'universal soldier' of OIF, with around 250 seeing combat. Flown by various squadrons and groups, the Hornet attacked a range of targets including tanks of the various Iraqi Republican Guard units and government buildings housing elements of the Baath party regime. Apart from its ability to drop precision munitions such as laser-guided bombs, the Hornet was also capable of launching anti-radar missiles and acting as an aerial tanker and reconnaissance platform for other strike types. This book explores the Hornet's versatility which has enhanced its reputation as one of the world's leading strike-fighter aircraft.

Synopsis:

History, technology and crews of military aircraft. Each book concentrates on one of the greatest aircraft in aviation history, the technology behind it and the men who flew it. Scale drawings and aircraft profiles illustrate the major variants of each machine. The Hornet's versatility in combat has made it one of the world's leading strike fighter aircraft. This book examines its deployment in each of its combat roles; attacking tanks and government buildings, deploying laser guided bombs and anti-raider missiles, and acting as an aerial tanker and reconnaissance platform for other strike-types.
