Special editions

  • F7C Hornet Wildfire: Created as part of the Masters of Flight series in conjunction with the flight-sim Arena Commander, the Wildfire pays tribute to famed pilot Aria Reilly for her distinguished service with the legendary Squadron 42.

History

The first F7A Hornet came out in 2806 and replaced the Aegis Avenger as the standard medium fighter for the UEE.

Trivia
