RAAF F/A-18A Hornets Arrive in the Middle East

As part of Operation OKRA, the Australian Air Task Group has deployed six F/A-18A Hornet combat aircraft. The Australian ATG F/A-18A Hornets, as part of the Coalition, continue to conduct close air support and strike operations against the Daesh over Iraq. The F/A-18A Hornet is a Multi-Role Fighter, which means it can be employed in air combat, close air support of ground troops, interdiction of enemy supply lines, and strategic strike in the land and maritime domains.
