In this context, military aircraft that play a critical role in military missions have also been witnessing a significant rise in demand.To this end, it is imperative to mention that Boeing’s F/A-18 Block III Super Hornet, the backbone of the U.S. Navy, is a combat aircraft that delivers cutting-edge, next-generation multi-role strike fighter capability.
