    Boeing announced today that it will promote the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet as the next-generation fighter for the Hellenic Republic (Greece).

    “We are pleased to offer the Hellenic Air Force the advanced combat capability of the Block II Super Hornet,” said Dan Korte, vice president and general manager of Global Strike Systems for Boeing Integrated Defense Systems. “In addition, we look forward to furthering long-term partnerships with the Hellenic government and aerospace industry.”

    The Super Hornet, with core strengths in both performance and technology, is the most advanced multipurpose strike fighter in production today, with a proven performance record through more than 500,000 hours of flight time. It is operated by the U.S. Navy and is currently being built for the Royal Australian Air Force.

    The aircraft is the first operationally deployed strike fighter to incorporate next-generation capabilities, such as the Raytheon APG-79 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar integrated with advanced electronic-warfare systems. The Super Hornet program has continued to add capability to the aircraft while decreasing cost over its lifetime.
