Based the two-seater version on the F/A-18F Super Hornet, the Growler replaces the EA-6B Prowler. The F/A-18E/F Super Hornet is a supersonic fi ghter / ground attack aircraft. The Super Hornet entered service with the United States Navy in 1999. Since 2006 it has replaced the F-14 Tomcat and is deployed side by side with the F/A-18C Hornet. The Super Hornet was ordered by the U.S. Navy in 1992 and its fi rst fl ight took place on 29 November 1995. Production of the F/A-18E/F began in 1995. In 1999 the Super Hornet went through a series of user tests and other assessment procedures by the U.S. Navy and was accepted in February 2000. Although the general design and systems are similar the Super Hornet differs in many ways from the original version F/A-18 Hornet. The Super Hornet is informally referred to as the „Rhino“ to distinguish it from the earlier „Legacy“ Hornets and to avoid confusion during radio communications
