Welcome to Strike fighter Squadron (VFA) 32 website! Located onboard Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach, the "Fighting Swordsmen" operate F/A-18F Super Hornet . The Swordsmen report operationally to Commander, Carrier Air Wing THREE and administratively to Commander, Strike Fighter Wing, Atlantic. We fly the two seat variant of the Navy’s newest strike fighter aircraft the F/A-18F Super Hornet. The F/A-18F model was designed for traditional air superiority, fighter escort, reconnaissance, aerial refueling, close air support, forward air control (airborne), air defense suppression and day/night precision strike, the F/A-18F at the same time increases strike mission survivability and supplements the fleet air defense.
