Detail and Scale produced its first book on the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet in 2004 when what is today’s principle combat aircraft of the U. S. Navy was just entering operational fleet service. Since then, the history of the Super Hornet has expanded remarkably, and in 2010, the EA-18G Growler was introduced. This new work, F/A-18E and F/A-18F Super in Detail and Scale: Also Includes the EA-18G Growler, brings our original work forward sixteen years, with nearly all-new content, more photographs (all in color), and the addition of new artwork. The photographic content includes work by some of the best aviation photographers along with material from U. S. Navy and Boeing archives. These are complemented by 180 photographs taken specifically for this book which are available nowhere else. This new book is an up-to-date, far more comprehensive, and much larger publication on the U.S. Navy’s Super Hornet and Growler.The book begins with an overview of the developmental history of the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, which emerged from a response to key shortcomings of the otherwise successful F/A-18 “Legacy” Hornets. The next chapter provides a comprehensive synopsis of the aircraft’s structure and systems including avionics, radars and sensors, powerplant, armament, and other stores. This is followed by an all-new chapter on the EA-18G Growler electronic warfare (EW) variant, covering its development and the key features of its unique EW systems
