The United States and allied forces don’t have to wait for advanced technologies that they need now – Boeing fighters are available and can be flown and upgraded almost simultaneously. Take the Advanced F-15: Harvesting the potential of the highly capable F-15 fighter family, the Advanced F-15 offers potential customers evolutionary features on an aircraft undefeated in air-to-air combat. Similarly, the Advanced Super Hornet brings an impressive menu of new options to a fighter that has already cornered the market on high-performing, sustainable capability. Customers can select which next-gen capabilities meet their mission and cost requirements, making the Super Hornet a low-risk, affordable solution for tactical aviation. And then there’s the Growler. Derived from the F/A-18F Super Hornet, it’s the leading electronic attack platform available today. The Royal Australian Air Force, which currently operates 24 Super Hornets, recently made the decision to acquire 12 Growlers to diversify its fleet mix and acquire electronic attack abilities on a platform it knows how to operate and maintain.
In the end, it all comes down to protecting warfighters by beating threats. And Boeing believes that the best way to beat an evolving threat is with an evolving aircraft. With the most affordable, capable and available lineup of continually evolving tactical fighters, Boeing continues to get it right with the Advanced F-15, Super Hornet, Advanced Super Hornet and Growler.
