Sejatinya, McDonnel Douglas F/A-18 Hornet sendiri merupakan salah satu kekuatan inti dari armada angkatan laut Amerika. Pesawat ini utamanya didesain khusus untuk sasaran darat dan memberikan perlindungan bagi armada laut.

Menggunakan mesin turbofans ganda keluaran General Electric, F/A-18 Hornet mampu melesat hingga 1,8x kecepatan suara atau mach 1,8 dan mencapai ketinggian hingga 50,000ft. Prototype pertama Hornet diujicobakan pada bulan November 1978, dan status operasi disandang pada pertengahan 1983.

Malaysia sendiri sampai saat ini memiliki 8 unit pesawat F/A-18D Hornet. Negara-negara lain yang juga menggunakan Hornet adalah Australia, Spanyol, Kuwait, Finlandia dan Swiss.
