Default Navy Fighter Jet Font?

I'm trying to determine what font is used on the nose of Navy fighter jets, specifically the F-18. I'm sure there are some people here who make their own decals for this kind of thing. Any help?

I was in the Navy in the early '80's and I don't think all squadrons used the the same font. Some were block and some more rounded. Here are a couple of our EA-6B Prowlers.
