These five different color schemes were applied to celebrate the 100th anniversary of 11F squadron in 2019.
11F is the oldest fighter formation in naval aviation. Heir to the aviation unit known in 1919 as AC1 squadron, 11F chose the winged seahorse insignia in the late 1920s. It changed its name several times, officially becoming 11F squadron in 1953. It has used 19 different aircraft types, from the Seafire to the Rafale Marine, and including the Aquilon and the Super Etendard.
11F squadron has seen two world wars, the Indochina War and the Algerian War. It has thus tested the courage and self-sacrifice of its naval aviators in the course of many battles. It has conducted thousands of operations from five aircraft carriers: the Béarn, Arromanches, Foch, Clemenceau and Charles-de-Gaulle.
With the retirement of the Super-Etendard in 2011, the "furious" 11F became the second fighter unit to switch to an all-Rafale Marine fleet.
The design was created by R. Jultier, produced and applied by Createm.
The Rafale is an omnirole fighter aircraft, produced in both French Air Force and Navy versions. The two versions are 95% identical.
Operational on the French aircraft carrier Charles-de-Gaulle, the Rafale M is the only foreign combat aircraft capable of carrying out operations from U.S. aircraft carriers, using their catapults and arresting gear.
With an external payload capacity of 9,500kg, the Rafale M regularly carries out Quick Reaction Alert (QRA), air defense and sovereignty missions, power projection and deployments for external missions, deep strike missions, air support for ground forces or reconnaissance, as well as pilot training and qualification flights. The aircraft has been in service with the French Navy since 2004, and has proven its combat effectiveness since 2007.
