The General Dynamics F-111C is a variant of the American F-111 Aardvark for the Royal Australian Air Force. It was developed by General Dynamics and serves as a fighter-bomber and reconnaissance aircraft.

HistoryEdit

The General Dynamics F-111C (nicknamed "Pig") is a hybrid of the F-111A's fuselage, empennage, powerplant and avionics, the F-111B's lengthened wings, and the FB-111A's strengthened landing gear, wheels and brakes. First delivered to the Royal Australian Air Force in 1968, the F-111C has a maximum takeoff weight of 110,000lbs (49,896kg), and carries the AN/AVQ-26 Pave Tack targeting system in its weapons bay, which provides FLIR and electro-optical sensors, and a laser range finder/designator. The F-111C was replaced after more than 40 years of service in Australian arsenals by the F/A-18F Super Hornet. The last of the "Pigs" retired in December 2010.

OverviewEdit

The F-111C is one of three aircraft in the NATO arsenal which carry the Mk.84 1000kg bomb (the other two being the Norwegian F-16A Fighting Falcon, and the American F-15D Eagle). The F-111C carries four of these bombs, providing exceptional destructive power over a wide area. This awesome firepower comes at a high price, however, at 140 points per aircraft.

The F-111C is a fast aircraft, and with a 1000km/h top speed it spends little time over enemy Integrated Air Defense zones (IADS) and can get to its target quickly. It is not without its drawbacks, however, namely its poor ECM, and lack of any self-defense weaponry for dealing with hostile aircraft. This leaves the F-111C vulnerable to long range SAMs and enemy fighters. Escort is highly advised if enemy fighters are anticipated.
