Which photo are you referring to? The one in the initial post is a E flown by VFA-195.

 

The one in the link to the Syrian Su-22 shootdown is a D.

The Su-22 shoot down article. Looking at the photo on my tablet I couldn't really tell at first glance if it was a D or an F.

I would bet that at this point, news reports would be using "stock" photos. If they had word that an F-18 shot down the Syrian jet, they'd just find a stock photo of any F-18. We anal types will eventually find out which squadron, nose number, BuNo, and maybe even pilot(s). And eventually there will be a decal or several.

Paul, you've seen this? 

Apparently it was a VFA-87 'Warhawks' E model, BuNo 168914 /AJ304.
