The combat-proven Super Hornet delivers cutting-edge, next-generation, multi-role strike fighter capability. It is able to perform nearly every mission in the tactical spectrum, including air superiority, day/night strike with precision-guided weapons, fighter escort, close air support, suppression of enemy air defenses, maritime strike, reconnaissance, forward air control and tanker missions.

Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) No. 1 Squadron operates 24 F/A-18F Super Hornets at RAAF Base Amberley, which are sustained under Boeing’s Air Combat Electronic Attack Sustainment Program (ACEASP).

Through the ACEASP, Boeing has partnered with the RAAF for more than a decade to help develop Australia’s F/A-18F Super Hornet fleet into one of the most advanced and formidable multi-role fighters in the world today.

The sustainment services delivered by Boeing Defence Australia leverage both local industry expertise and Original Equipment Manufacturer capabilities from The Boeing Company in the U.S. to deliver logistics, maintenance, engineering and operational and capability upgrade management services.

The aircraft are tied in with the U.S. Navy spiral development program – ensuring the platforms keep their capability edge – with significant hardware and software enhancements delivered to the fleet on a two-yearly cycle.
