The U.S. Navy painted an F/A-18E from VFC-12 in a scheme to look similar to a Russian Su-57 ‘Felon’. The scheme was meant to resemble the scheme on the fifth production Su-57 which the Russians referred to as ‘White Shark’ so the staff from VFC-12 named theirs ‘Mako’ and use the call sign ‘Ambush’. This scheme was first seen on June 18, 2021 during a change of command at NAS Oceana. VFC-12’s new Commanding Officer, CDR Scott “CAWK” Golich is displayed on the canopy rail.Opening canopy

The E is a much larger, more advanced and more capable variant of the F/A-18C. The Super Hornet variant can carry a larger array of weapons as well as more of them and is capable of returning to the carrier while still carrying unspent munitions. The first flight of the F/A-18E took place in 1995 with delivery to the U.S. Navy starting in 1999.
