Trivia

  • The full description of this aircraft currently does not exist in the English version of Ace Combat Infinity, because it instead uses the description that should be for the F-16C -Windhover- 4 Star Aircraft.
  • Strangely, despite representing Avalanche Squadron, the F/A-18F -Avalanche- is almost identical to the standard AC6 paint scheme for the F/A-18F, even retaining the Garuda Squadron emblems. The only noticeable difference is the aircraft number, changing from 028 to 002.
