Air Navy Fighters for Android – Take Control of an F/A-18 Super Hornet

Here’s a game I’ve been looking for – a modern fighter jet game with decent controls. It’s called Air Navy Fighter and it’s pretty awesome. You take control of a Hornet and do various missions that include destroying ground targets, SAM sites, and more. So far, the most difficult thing I’ve encountered is actually landing the plane back on the carrier.

There’s a pro version that offers more planes which I may have to invest in, but for now, this free version comes with plenty of missions and the controls are excellent. If you’re into the jets and blowing things up with guidied missiles  you can’t go wrong.

Play Link: Lite | Pro ($1.99)

Cheers Ben!

    An F18 is nothing but an blockage in the lunch line on a carrier.

    I like everything that actually matters with android. That’s why I come here every day, to get android news. Period. If I cared about android games I would google what are the best android games. Come on guys. I know you have to post a certain amount of times a day to keep the site full. But how many flying games is that this week? Thanks for all your hard work though. It is appreciated.

      Doesn’t really sound appreciated lol

    It can’t possibly be any harder than landing your fighter on the carrier in the NES original “Top Gun”

        Close, right by SFO…so I’m used to jets and hardly notice them anymore…except 4 Fighters in formation has a certain roar and rumble!

    “So far, the most difficult thing I’ve encountered is actually landing the plane back on the carrier.”

    Sounds pretty legit, then!

    Also, you guys sure do like your flying games. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I spent many, many hours playing X-wing and Tie Fighter back in the day..

      If I go too fast, I crash. If I go too slow, I stall and crash. Everything else is pretty straight forward. Lock on and shoot lol

      Anyways, yea.

      Descent Freespace and Freespace 2 were genre defining. I lost so many hours of my life to space/flight sims back in the day.

        Freespace over dialup, I remember that. Now I feel like I’m going to die soon.

        Agreed! Team [NUB] I’ve often had an itch to play the last few years, too bad it won’t run on newer operating systems. Decent + MS Force Feedback controller controller FTW.

      Remember when the Jane’s series was the best? *sigh*

        I played US Navy Fighters for years. The toolkit made that game unstoppable

    • michael arazan

      f18 carrier landing light is really good and fun sim, ground landing difficult, carrier landing very difficult, night carrier landing, effing impossible but do-able.

    I got excited when I saw the title because I thought this was a throwback of Jane’s Navy Fighters, one of the best (and easiest) jet fighter sims to play on Windows. Thinking most average smartphones have more computing power than computers did running Windows 95, it would certainly be doable. Still going to check this out, thanks for the link!
