The F-15E Strike Eagle is a multi-function fighter for all weather conditions based on the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle. The F-15E was developed in the eighties to intercept long range and high speed without relying on escort fighters or electronic weapons. The F-15E Strike Eagles of the US Air Force it can be distinguished from other variants of the US Eagle by its dark air camouflage and insulating fuel tanks (CFT).
The McDonnell Douglas F-15 A Eagle is a twin-engine tactical fighter for all weather conditions designed by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) to achieve and maintain air superiority in all aspects of air combat. After reviewing the proposals in 1967, the United States Air Force selected the McDonnell Douglas project to satisfy the need for a special hunt to achieve air superiority. The Eagle flew for the first time in July 1972 and entered service in 1976. It is one of the most successful modern fighters, with more than 100 victories and no losses in air combat.
The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is a two-seat, twin-engine, two-seater, long-range supersonic interceptor and bomber developed for McDonnell Aircraft for the United States Navy. It entered service for the first time in 1960 with the United States Navy. Proving to be highly adaptable, it was also adopted by the United States Marine Corps and Air Force, and by the mid-1960s it had become an important part of its air weapons. Phantom is a great fighter with a speed maximum higher than Mach 2.2. It can carry more than 8 400 kg (18,000 pounds) of weapons in nine external rigid points, including air-to-air missiles, air-to-ground missiles and various bombs.
The F-4, like other interceptors of its time, was designed without an internal cannon. Later, the models were equipped with a Vulcan M61 rotary gun. Since 1959, it has established 15 world flight records, including an absolute speed record and an absolute altitude above sea level.
Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor is a fifth generation tactical twin-engine fighter, for all weather conditions, designed for the United States Air Force. The Advanced Tactical Fighter program, developed by the United States Air Force, the Jet was designed primarily as a fighter for air superiority, but also in ground attack capabilities, electronic warfare and signal recognition. General contractor Lockheed Martin built most of the F-22 combat tablets and systems and completed the final assembly, while Boeing provided wings, fuselage, fighter integration and training systems.
Before its official launch in December 2005, the fighter was designated in several ways as F-22 and F / A-22 as F-22A. After a long period of development and despite the operational challenges, the US Air Force considered the F-22 was fundamental to its tactical air power. When the aircraft was introduced, the United States Air Force declared that none of the known or planned fighters could match the aircraft. The combination of stealth, aerodynamic performance and knowledge of the Raptor’s situation provides the aircraft with an unprecedented air combat capability.
The Lockheed AC-130W Stinger is a well-armed and durable version of the C-130 Hercules transport fighter. It is equipped with a wide range of integrated anti-terrorist weapons with sophisticated sensors, navigation systems and fire control systems. Unlike other military fighters, the AC-130 uses visual aim. Thanks to its large profile and its small operating height (around 7,000 feet), it is an easy target, so it usually flies at night with limited air support.
The fighter is manufactured by Lockheed Martin, while Boeing is responsible for turning it into a combat ship and air support. Designed during the Vietnam War as a “Design Ship II”, the AC-130 replaced the Douglas AC-47 Spooky or “Machine Gun I”. The only operator is the United States Air Force.
General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine supersonic fighter originally developed by General Dynamics (now Lockheed Martin) for the United States Air Force. Designed to be an aerial superiority fighter, it became a successful multi-functional fighter in all weather conditions. Since the production was approved in 1976, more than 4,500 fighters have been built. Although the United States Air Force no longer buys them, improved versions are being developed for export customers.
The key features of Fighting Falcon include a frame-less bubble dome for better visibility, a side handle for easy control during maneuvers, a catapult seat tilted 30 degrees from the vertical to reduce the impact of the G force on the pilot , and the first use of a flight control system to make it mobile and stable. The F-16 has an internal M61 Vulcan cannon and 11 seats for weapons and other combat equipment.
Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is a family of multipurpose mono-plaza fighters, single-engine and for all types of weather conditions. Fifth generation combat fighters are designed to perform ground attack and air superiority missions. It has three main models: the conventional takeoff and landing variant (CTOL) F-35A, the short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL) F-35B variant, and the catapult-assisted take-off but recovery recovery variant (CATOBAR). F-35C The F-35 comes from the Lockheed Martin X-35, the winning design of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program. It is built by Lockheed and many subcontractors, including Northrop Grumman, Pratt & Whitney, and BAE Systems. The United States plans to buy 2,663 F-35, that will provide most of the tactical air power with crew of the Air Force, the Navy and the United States Marine Corps in the coming decades. Deliveries of the F-35 to the US Army they are scheduled until 2037 with a projected life until 2070.
The Rockwell B-1 Lancer is a variable sweep supersonic fighter, a heavy bomber fighter used by the United States Air Force. It is commonly called the “Bone” (from “B-One”). The B-1 was conceived for the first time in the 60s as a platform that combined the Mach 2 speed of the B-58 Hustler with the range and payload of the B-52, and that would eventually replace both fighters. After a long series of studies, Rockwell International (now part of Boeing) won the design contest for what emerged as the B-1A. This version had a maximum speed of Mach 2.2 at high altitude and the ability to fly for long distances at Mach 0.85 at very low altitudes.
The combination of the high cost of the aircraft, the introduction of the AGM-86 cruise missile that flew with the same basic profile and early work on the stealth bomber significantly affected the need for B-1. This led to the cancellation of the program in 1977, after the construction of the B-1A prototypes. The program was re-initiated in 1981, largely as a temporary measure until poaching entered service.
The Boeing B-52 Stratofortress is a long-range American strategic bomber powered by fighters. The B-52 was designed and built by Boeing, which has continued to provide support and improvements. It has been operated by the United States Air Force since the 1950s. The bomber is capable of transporting up to 70,000 pounds of weapons and has a typical combat range of more than 8,800 miles without the need for aerial refueling.
Beginning with the tender of the contract in June 1946, the design of the B-52 evolved from a straight wing airplane powered by six turboprop engines to the final prototype YB-52 with eight turbojet engines and swept wings. The B-52 took its first flight in April 1952. Built to transport nuclear weapons for the Cold War era deterrent missions, the B-52 Stratofortress replaced the Convair B-36. Veteran of several wars, the B-52 has only released conventional ammunition in combat. The B-52 has been in active service with the United States Air Force since 1955. As of December 2015.
Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit, also known as Stealth Bomber, is a heavy American low-profile strategic bomber designed to penetrate dense air defense systems; It is a two-seater aerial fighter. The fighter can use conventional and thermonuclear weapons, such as Mk 82 class bombs, with global positioning system controlled by JDAM, or 16 B83 nuclear bombs weighing 2,400 pounds. The B-2 is the only recognized aircraft capable of transporting large air-to-surface warheads in secret configuration.
Twenty B-2 aircraft are in service in the United States Air Force, which plans to operate them by the year 2032. The B-2 is capable of attacking altitudes of up to 50,000 feet, with a range of more than 6,000 nautical miles. indoor supply and more than 10. 000 nautical miles of isolated aerial refueling. It entered service in 1997 as the second aircraft developed to improve invisibility after the Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk attack aircraft. Although originally designed primarily to detonate nuclear weapons, the B-2 was first used in 1999 in battles with conventional and non-nuclear weapons during the Kosovo war. Later he served in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya.
The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II is a single seat, two turbofan and straight wing engines, developed by Fairchild-Republic for the United States Air Force. Commonly known by the nicknames of “Warthog” or “Hog”, although the official name of the A-10 comes from the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, a fighter bomber from the Second World War effective in the attack of targets on the ground.
The A-10 was designed for close air support from friendly ground troops, attacking armored vehicles and tanks, and providing quick-action support against enemy ground forces. It entered service in 1976 and is the only series-built aircraft to have served in the United States Air Force that was designed exclusively for the American aviation company (CAS). Its secondary mission is to provide airborne support for advanced air controllers (FAC-A), directing other aircraft in attacks against ground targets. The aircraft used mainly in this function are called OA-10.
The A-10 was intended to improve the performance of the Skyraider A-1 and its lower firepower. The A-10 was designed around the 30 mm GAU-8 Avenger rotating barrel. Its fuselage was designed to be durable, with measures like 1,200 pounds of titanium armor to protect the cabin and aircraft systems, allowing it to absorb a significant amount of damage and continue flying. Its short take-off and landing capability allows it to operate from runways close to the front lines, and its simple design allows maintenance with a minimum of facilities.
The Lockheed MC-130 Combat Talon II is a special mission fighter operated by the Special Operations Command of the United States Air Force (AFSOC), a wing of the Air Training and Education Command and a wing won by the AFSOC of the Air Force. Reserve Command of the Air Force. Based on the Lockheed C-130 Hercules transport, the missions of the MC-130 are the infiltration, ex-filtration and replenishment of special operations forces, and the refueling of aerial fuel from (mainly) special operations helicopters and tilt-rotor fighters.
The first of the variants, the MC-130E, was developed to support clandestine special operations missions during the Vietnam War. Eighteen were created by modifying the transports of the C-130E, and four were lost due to attrition, but the rest served more than four decades after its initial modification. An update, the MC-130H Combat Talon II, was developed in the 1980s from the C-130H and entered service in the 1990s. Four of the original 24 aircraft of the H series have been lost in operations.
Combat Shadows were built during the Vietnam War for search and rescue operations, and reoriented in the 1980s as AFSOC air cargo ships; the last of the 24 was withdrawn in 2015.

The Lockheed AC-130U Spooky is a heavily armed fighter, a long-running land attack variant of the C-130 Hercules fighter that transports fixed-wing hunting. It carries a wide range of anti-aircraft weapons that are integrated with sophisticated sensors, navigation systems and fire control. Unlike other fixed-wing military fighters, the AC-130 is based on the visual objective. Due to its large profile and low operating altitude (around 7,000 feet) it makes it an easy target, it usually flies on nearby air support missions at night.
The fuselage is manufactured by Lockheed Martin, while Boeing is responsible for the conversion into a fighter ship Developed during the Vietnam War as “Project Gunship II”, the AC-130 replaced the Douglas AC-47 Spooky, or “Gunship I” The only operator is the United States Air Force, which uses the AC-130U Spooky and AC-130W Stinger II variants for close air support, air interdiction and force protection, with the AC-130J Ghostrider ready for combat.
Nearby air support functions include support for ground troops, convoy escorting and urban operations. Air interception missions are carried out according to the intended objectives and the opportunity objectives. During an attack, the ship makes a pylon spin, flying in a large circle around the target, so it is capable of firing much longer than in a conventional machine-gun attack. Air interdiction and force protection, with the AC-130J Ghostrider ready for combat.
