F/A-18 Hornet/Super Hornet - discussione ufficiale

Recommended Posts

La US Navy sicuramente più tradizionalista dell'USAF in merito ad aviazione e dintorni, continua a dar fiducia alla quarta generazione e ai sistemi di guerra elettronica, perfettamente interpretata dal binomio Super Hornet-Growler (che certo non è figlio della mal digerita sbornia Joint che ha prodotto l'F-35) , laddove invece l’USAF punta sugli stealth e ha pensionato da parecchio i suoi EF-111.

Il peso della lobby Boeing è comunque forte, considerato che chi c’è al Pentagono sta piazzano l’F-15XE all’USAF che non l’aveva richiesto.

In un surreale what if mi chiedo che sarebbe successo se Boeing avesse vinto il concorso JSF e se LM si fosse trovata solo con l'F-16 in listino…

Growler Block II ...

Quote

Boeing has started design work to upgrade the US Navy’s (USN) fleet of EA-18G Growler electronic warfare aircraft.
The upgraded aircraft will be designated Growler Block II and include features already on the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, such as the advanced cockpit system and conformal fuel tanks. 
It will include improved sensors and an upgraded electronic attack package.
Earlier this year Boeing was working with the US Navy on initial architecture studies when when it received funding for the work. 
This helped it solidify requirements and move the Growler Block II design toward a system functional requirements review later in 2019.
