about  You expect to see Chinese fighters on this mission... but keeo your cool.

The region has been quiet for a couple of months now.

You are flying routine CAP's to enforce the no-fly zone. On patrol will probably see Chinese fighter aircraft but do not provoke any incidents.... listen for instructions from your wingleader.

    about  F/A-18 Hornet.
    The F/A-18 was developed as a replacement for the F-4 Phantom, the A-6 Intruder and the A-7 Corsair. Note that the first two of those aircraft were two-seaters and the single seat F/A-18 used a "glass cockpit" concept to enable a single pilot to fulfil the same mission roles. The F/A-18 Hornet was developed in the 1970's and is still the backbone of many Western Air Forces.
