About This File
This is a mod of the Super Hornet F from EricJ to make it look like a plane from the israeli air force.
In the final years of the first decade of the 21st century, Israel decided to replace their F-16C and D-Models (Barak) with a new type of fighter/bomber.
The only really fitting model for type of missions was the FA-18 Super Hornet.
The decision of either taking the E or F-model was decided in favor of the F-model due to the fact that two crewmembers would bring a better performance during the missions. The squadrons of the IAF equipped with the adapted Version, the Akav, were the 116th Squadron "Defenders of the South" and the 140th Squadron, "The Golden Eagle".
