You can check out the list below.
This ultimate stealth fighter is the pride of the U.S. Armed Forces. Aside from flight performance, it has top class acceleration performance and a two-dimensional thrust deflect nozzle which also gives it outstanding manoeuvrability. Its pre-emptive strike power, called “first look, first shoot, first kill,” is fitting for an aircraft with the name “Raptor,” the master of the skies.
F-117A Night Hawk
The historic first stealth attack aircraft which specializes in covert bombing. Because of its detailed airframe design which suppresses target detection, speed and manoeuvrability are limited. Instead, it is able to conduct pinpoint bombardments with long range, ground missiles and guided bombs without being detected by enemy radar nets. In order to reflect and absorb radar waves, it uses a unique airframe shape and coating configured to make a flat surface. Called the “Nighthawk,” more than 1,200 sorties were made with them in the 1991 Gulf War without losing a single plane, launching it into the spotlight.
A cutting-edge stealth fighter developed from a combination of Russian Air Force technologies. It boasts top class air battle power thanks to the outstanding manoeuvrability it gets from its thrust deflection nozzle and its low detection properties in regards to radar. PAK-FA is an abbreviation of the Russian word for “Future Airborne Complex – Frontline Aviation.” Because it is a prototype, many details such as on-board armaments are shrouded in secrecy.
F-35B Lightning II
A multipurpose fighter produced using a JSF (Joint Strike Fighter) design. While able to use a variety of weapons in air-to-air and air-to-ground combat, the procurement cost for this stealth fighter is more manageable than the F-22A. In accordance with its utility, there are multiple types available. The B type utilized by the U.S. Marine Corps is STOVL (short takeoff/vertical landing) compatible. Its nickname is “Lightning II.”
