The F/A-18 Hornet is the current modern attack plane on U.S carriers. It plays a complementary role to the F-14 Tomcat, which is designed solely for air-to-air combat. The Hornet is capable of air-to-surface missions as well, but sacrifices some performance in each of these areas to achiefe this flexibility.
