Stupid, stupid, stupid............ why can't I keep my aircraft designations straight.......... grrrr.

F/A-18 and F-15 = my FAVORITE fighters.

Edit: Oh, and by the way, the hover jet is technically the AV-8B

There was an AV-8A as well, and don't forget the new F-35 :P

PS: Canada has CF-18s. Aka early-gen F-18s....yeah we're awesome.

I think we have a grand total of 125 of the suckers active...

Nope. We have old Tudor trainers and such, and at one point we had a few CF-5s (same as F-5) and CF-101s (F-101 Starfighter, I think that'* the #) , but now we just have outdated, poorly maintained CF-18s.

Do you mean after how Canada did in the Falklands or how the Dassault Mirage did?

Canada was never in the Falklands if you meant the former.
