I have a question about the F-18C in development and I've had a hunt online but can't find anything, is the F-18 capable of super cruise at all? It would be pretty neat if it could but I'm not sure. TIA

Hornet isn't supposed to be as fast as other jets, F-15C has an excellent TWR and it does not supercruise well, yes it is capable of going mach 1+ without AB but that's not really supercruise by the book. If you load the Eagle with all the missiles, fuel tanks and stuff, it will be lighter than the Su-27S with full internal tanks and no missiles at all and it is somewhat the same or even better under the same conditions when trying to hit mach 1+ without AB, and as you can see it's very heavy...
