With $5B Order, Canada Lays Groundwork to Buy F/A-18E/F Super Hornets

The U.S. government has agreed to a potential sale of nearly 20 F/A-18E/F Super Hornet aircraft to Canada worth $5.23 billion, the State Department announced. The foreign military sale stipulates 10 F/-A18E and eight F/A-18F Boeing-made fighter jets, the State Department said Tuesday. The package would include accompanying F414-GE-400 engines; AN/APG-79 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radars; AN/AAQ-33 Sniper Advanced Targeting Pods; among gun, tactical radio, joint-helmet, electronic warfare, navigation and video, and transponder systems and appropriate spare parts, officials said in a release. In addition to the planes, Canada would receive the latest AIM-9X Sidewinder Block II missiles, as well as guidance technologies and spare missiles for training, plus avionics integration and training support.
