Swiss Air Force uses Hornets for main air-defense duty. Based at Payerne (FS17 and FS18) and Meiringen (FS11), they constitute the backbone of aerial defense of Switzerland. Although designed as a carrier-borne aircraft and a reliable multi-role platform, Hornet’s short reaction time and good performance make it ideal for the diverse Swiss terrain.
