Game Analysis

Ace Combat Infinity

FA-18F -Black Hornet-
"A special version of the F/A-18F featuring gold pinstripes on a black surface. As a carrier-based fighter attacker, it features both excellent air defense and air-to-ground combat abilities. Its speed and maneuvering capabilities as well as other elements have also been enhanced. Featuring a beautiful color design, it would be no surprise for people to start calling this aircraft the "Black Beauty"."
