Boeing Corporation Offers New Super Hornet

21
Boeing Corporation has offered the US Navy an updated deck-based fighter. At Sea-Air-Space 2017, organized by the US Navy and taking place in Washington these days, a new modification of the F / A-18E / F Super Hornet carrier-based fighter, called Block III, was shown.

Boeing Corporation Offers New Super Hornet


Deck F / A-18E / F Super Hornet Block III


The exhibition shows a scale model, as well as computer sketches of a new machine. The aircraft differs from the previous modification (Block II) in seven significant updates (at the company's booth only five of them were told, two more are military and commercial secrets). The updated Super Hornet has received conformal fuel tanks that can hold more fuel and have less airflow resistance than the suspension models currently in use. As stated by the Boeing Corporation, with new tanks, Super Hornet fighters will increase the range by almost 300 km.

The new display will replace the dashboard pilot


The second significant difference was the new IRST (infrared search and track) sensor. Lockheed Martin's IRST21 sensor is installed on the aircraft, which improves the pilot's situational awareness and allows you to detect threats from a much greater distance. The third innovation was the new computer and data exchange system, the fourth - the new system RCS (Radar Cross Section), the installation of which required a change in the shape of the nose of the aircraft, but allowed to improve the operation of the angle of attack sensors. The fifth "unclassified" improvement was the installation of a large touch screen display that displays the data needed for the pilot.

Information on the development of the aircraft F / A-18E / F Super Hornet Block III first appeared in the press in February of this year. Dan Gillian, head of the Boeing Corps Aircraft Development Division, introduced this machine as a temporary replacement for the F-35C Lightning II multi-purpose fighter-bomber, whose development program is being delayed due to technical problems. The aircraft was originally known as the F / A-18 XT and Advanced Super Hornet.

      I do not understand .... and the satellites are already selling F-35C Lightning II, like a super-duper ...

          There are women in Russian villages, not looking, and the wallet knows for sure its contents. And so let's count. Amers have 10 fleets in the sea and one reserve. In each there is an aircraft carrier - according to their flagship. Each such flagship has an average of 75 pepelats and 10 turntables. Only half the sea penguins arm, on a cheap basis, 100 cartoons apiece - our budget will crack ten times. And the Hornet, which is not the Hornet in battle, is checked

        Oh Horror. Lochid has the right to sell Penguins only to Israel and Japan, and then at the expense of the American taxpayer. Since the NATO countries have invested, the right word to pass on

    wassat Ofiget.And how much they were going to do it that are already going to release new old planes temporarily ?? Three years ago, the Israeli comrades on the site here poured us that the program remained to be changed. No, it won’t work. F35 is like F35. Tell us to watch the Hornet for another 25 years. Frankly, this rattletack is tired of them.

      F / A-18E / F Super Hornet no one was going to change to F-35C Lightning II. It is necessary to read carefully. The F-35 Lightning II will replace the F / A-18 Hornet, AV-8B Harrier, F-16. A-10 Thunderbolt II in doubt.

    a car as a temporary replacement for the F-35C Lightning II multi-functional fighter-bomber, whose development program is delayed due to technical problems. The aircraft was originally known as the F / A-18 XT and Advanced Super Hornet.

    How is it delayed? He already won and forced to hide our air defense ?!

      Once again. Does anyone here wrote something. All options are unified by 70-90%. In addition, the F-35 used many technological solutions developed on the F-22. It is expected that the F-35 will begin service in 2016 [84] when they begin to replace the mentally and physically obsolete aircraft of the US Air Force A-10 Thunderbolt II and F-16 in 2016, as well as the AV-8B Harrier Marine Corps and F / A-18 US Navy in 2017. Where is the F / A-18E / F Super Hornet here?

        The first was adopted by the F-35A for the Air Force
        Then came the F-35B Marine Corps.
        Marine version of the F-35C delayed due to unreliable hooking
        brake cable. The design was redone.
        According to the latest information (February 2017) instead of the planned 260 aircraft
        The Navy wants to buy 67 pieces "for testing."

    Bad news. I still hoped that the beautiful F / A-18s will write off everything and replace it with the wonderful F-35

      And I wrote two and a half years ago that it wouldn’t work. Lightning — they would modernize the Hornet.
