Why the F-18s are always assigned to the navy? Its a two seats double engines multirole bird that fits all scenarios.
because their navy thought having a plane that could "do everything" was a smart choice, which in return was not a smart choice.

US Cruiser Chancellorsville in the South China Sea



While off the Spratly islands the USS Chancellorsville it received a transmission from a Chinese frigate which later appeared along with a Chinese helicopter which circled the Chancellorsville. Following the transmission Ensign Anthony Giancana told the helicopter to switch frequencies to which there was no response. Once the helicopter returned to the Chinese frigate and the Chinese ship was in range, it transmitted..." U.S. Navy Warship 62. ... This is Chinese Warship 575". Following this was an exchange of radio chatter....

“This is U.S. Warship 62. Good morning, sir. It is a pleasant day at sea, over.”

No response.

“This is U.S. Warship 62. Good morning, sir. It is a pleasant day to be at sea, over.”

After the Chinese failed to respond a Chinese speaking Ensign, Ensign Li, was called upon to transmit a message.

“Today is a sunny day for a sea voyage, over.”

Again there was no response so Ensign Anthony Giancana transmitted two more messages
“This is like Opening Day,”

“We’ve done spring training.’’

Chinese Warship 575
“U.S. Warship 62, this is Chinese Warship 575. Today’s weather is great. It is a pleasure to meet you at sea.”

USS Chancellorsville: Ensign Li
“This is U.S. Warship 62. The weather is indeed great. It is a pleasure to meet you, too, over.”

Chinese Warship 575

USS Chancellorsville: Ensign Giancana
“Chinese Warship 575, this is U.S. Navy Warship 62. We do not talk about our schedules. But we are enjoying our time at sea, over.”

Chinese Warship 575
“U.S. Navy Warship 62, this is Chinese Navy Warship 575, Do you continue to have long-term voyage at sea? Over.”

USS Chancellorsville: Captain Curt A. Renshaw
“This is U.S. Navy Warship 62,’ Roger, all of our voyages are short because we enjoy our time at sea no matter how long we are away from home. Over.”

Chinese Warship 575
“U.S. Navy Warship 62, this is Chinese Navy Warship 575, Copy that I will be staying along with you for the following days. Over.”
