Royal Australian Air Force F/A-18A/B: A21-1 - A21-57 and A21-101 - A21-118 Edit

Maybe not 100% relevant, but this section now contains details on all Royal Australian Air Force F/A-18A and F/A-18B jets. The RAAF jets were mostly produced locally at Government Aircraft Factory in Victoria and thus, were never assigned a USN-type BuNo (unlike the latter FMS F/A-18F and EA-18G purchases) and also as a result, never really fell into the USN-type lots (they were built to the Block-Standard of the time, as the following listings show). The addition of 'Australian-isations' further removes them from easily be fit in with the USN listings - however every jet was assigned a McAir construction number (cn) which has been used to organise this list.

With modernisation programs, the RAAF Hornets have generally kept pace with the USMC jets, although some differences should be noted. Initially the launch bar was not fitted; this was then replaced with a mass-balance and later a dummy launch bar to correct nose wheel shimmy issues. RAAF Jets all use the SJU9/A and SJU10/A seats, in place of the USN/USMC SJU5/A and SJU6/A. RAAF jets have the capability to employ the AN/AAQ-28(v) Lightening AT pod, ELTA EL/T-8222 jamming pod and are equiped with a HMCS for use with the AIM-132 ASRAAM and other systems. Additionally, BOL dispensers can be flush mounted to the Wing Pylons. As part of numerous avionics and structural upgrades (HUG-series of upgrades), the original AN/APG-65 radar was replaced with the AN/APG-73, ALR-67 Radar Warning Receiver, improved IFF and secure datalink capabilities were added; a raft of structural upgrades as well as uprated engines also found their way onto the aircraft. The jets have the capability to launch the AGM-158 JASSM cruise missile and were the development platform the Australian developed JDAM-ER.

Lot 26Edit

Beginning with Lot 26 (FY03), production transitioned to Block 2 with a re-designed forward fuselage and provisions to incorporate Block 2 equipment including Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar, Advanced Crew Station (ACS), 8x10 Display, Fiber Channel Network Switch, and Digital Video Map Computer. Advanced Mission Computers and Displays (AMC&D) upgrades the mission computers from an assembly language based system to an open architecture higher order language and were introduced beginning with Lot 25. In Block 2, the AM/ALQ-165 was replaced by the AN/ALQ-214 radar frequency countermeasures system, a "techniques generator" that determines an appropriate signal to counter an attacking missile. 48 aircraft produced.
