·//• Description:
Here it is, the F-18 Hornet. This is converted from Battlefield two, pretty much straight from it, only modified to work in SA the best I could get. 
And a side note to those using the SCM hook, due to the high speeds attainable by this with the SCM hook activated, be care and don't rely on body roll due too the lack of it. And be careful, the ground can come up quick at 500+ mph!

Here's some real life info on this awesome plane! (Thanks to Wikipedia)

The Boeing (formerly McDonnell Douglas) F/A-18 Hornet is a modern all-weather carrier strike fighter jet, designed to attack both ground and aerial targets. Designed in the 1970s, it is in service with the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps, as well as the air forces of several other nations. Its primary missions are fighter escort, fleet air defense, suppression of enemy air defenses (SEAD), interdiction, close and air support, and reconnaissance. Its versatility and reliability have proven it to be a valuable carrier asset, though it has been criticized for its lack of range and payload compared to its contemporaries.

·//• Last Notes:
In case of any trouble, please don't hesitate to contact me at ascendence.net or gtaforums.com (PM Picolini) and I will try to help you to the best of my ability.
A special thanks to all the help from Brendan for the perfect materials settings, they are perfect! And a big thanks Pinky for helping with the handling and making it function well with the SCM hook, which I highly reccommend!. Also, thanks to Spy3d for getting me the files, with out his help I wouldn't have been able to make this.
Again, the mesh and textures are made by EA for Battlefield 2, I have only converted and edited them to work in SA.

If you would like to use change this mod in anyway, and release anything, please contact me and let me know! 
Also, feel free to host this on your site, but you MUST give me the credits as the author along with the original/contributing authors (EA Games/Battlefield 2), and keep this readme with the files. Also, in the notes/description link back to Ascendence.net. Thanks for cooperating!
