    The McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet is an all-weather fighter jet, designed to attack both ground and aerial targets. The Hornet is used by the Swiss Air Forces since January 1996. The F/A-18 is a twin engine, mid-wing, multi-mission tactical aircraft. The Hornet is capable of extremely tight turns over a large range of speeds. The Swiss Air Force purchased 26 C models and eight D models. In October 2008 the Swiss Hornet fleet reached the 50000 flight hour milestone.
