The aircraft, most of which will be assembled in Finland by Patria Finavitec (formerly Valmet Aviation) will replace J35 Drakens - some of which were also produced in Finland - and MiG-21bis fighters. The MiG-21 was withdrawn from service in March 1998 while the Drakens will soldier on until 2001. The air force is organised into three air commands, each assigned to one of the three air defence areas into which Finland is divided.

So far seven two-seat F-18Ds and twelve F-18Cs have been delivered out of the total of 64 aircraft on order. The total cost for the aircraft, training, simulators, weapons and spares is around $3.3 billion (in 1992 dollars). </p> <p>Finland was thehttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Cold-climate-Hornet-14482/
