there is a difference, but it is so small that few know it. The only major difference is the air intake the nose.

 

just wondering, wasn't the hornet just the F-18, not the F/A-18. I thought that the F/A-18 was only for the Boeing's Superhornet Version

Both of them are great beauties.But I still think the F/A-18E/F is more beautiful.

link or it's not real... although they did just release today that the Chinese did break into our computer systems and stole data on all our latest tech... so... in a few years.. they may have a prototype...

Haha, that's rich.

Any Chinese copy of a foreign aircraft is far from breaking news. Besides, China is incapable of producing decent engines and avionics. Any resemblance in design is purely aesthetic. It'll be underpowered and electronically inferior.
