After Vietnam, the US quickly realized their heavy, Navy flown gunships like the F4 Phantom, were no match for faster, older jets like the MiGs. In 1974, the YF-18 was produced for the gap, quickly getting a brother, the YF-19, produced as a heavier load version than its brother. Both were initially introduced into service in the Navy, the F/A-18 in November of 1978, and the F/A-19 in January of 1979. Designed for speed rather than firepower, these twins were swift, responsive, and powerful. However, due to a reoccurring engine problem, leading to millions of dollars in maintenance, the F/A-19 was quickly retired, becoming cheap foreign fighters and privately owned jets.
