Default F/A-18C nose wheel steering

Hi, sorry for tsa potentially dumb question.

Will F/A-18C have two mode of nose wheel steering? (HI and LOW like the AV8B)

If yes, where is the switch to choose between two modes?

Thank you so much

Yes and You must hold NWS for turns on Hi position.
Very useful for carrier ops on the deck.

No. When you want to steer in NWS-HI mode you have to hold it.

So, single press of the button will engage low NWS. Holding the same button will engage HI mode, and single press of the disengage paddle will disengage NWS at all.
It's correct?

IIRC the HI mode is only avilable if your wings are folded.
