    Military Aircraft

    I noticed the Bhutto thread discussing some Military Aircraft and figured this could make a cool thread on it's own.

    I've always loved researching Military Aircraft and going to air shows.

    And a personal favorite of mine... the A-10 Warthog:

    oh ho ho.
    The work horse of the air, the infantries aircraft.
    Good
    choice.
    But I'll counter you with the future of the air force, the soon to be king of the sky, F-22 Raptor.

    Re: Military Aircraft

    Very cool... I was actually looking at F-22 pics before I went with the A-10... the "Tank Killer"... so bad ass.

    Anywhoo... the Euro-Fighter is pretty bad ass as well. It's a joint venture between England, France, Italy and a couple other countries I believe... but a sharp looking Jet nonetheless.

    EF-2000:

    And then of course there is the American F-15E Eagle:

    Or the plane that won the skies of WW-2 for the Allies.
    The P-51 Mustang, best prop plane every created.

    Re: Military Aircraft

    Agree about the P-51 being the best... here are 2nd and 3rd place respectively... (of course I'm leaving out the Japanese Zero and the German Messerschmidt 109)

    P-40 Warhawk

    Re: Military Aircraft

    As a 21 year Air Force vet, you guys hit my soft spot!
    1973-94 put me in the position to witness a lot technology advances.
    The century series aircraft (F-100, F-101, F-102, F-104, F-105 and F-106) were cool, with the F-106 being my favorite...

    Re: Military Aircraft

    Or the German Messerschmitt Bf-109 that in the hands of good german pilots had some of the highest kill counts in the war.
