    Modern and Future U.S. Military and Civilian Aircraft

    While still retaining some aging aircraft from the Cold War period, modern American air power remains second to none.





    The United States has maintained an edge over rivals in regards to procuring and maintaining effective aircraft fleets - from fixed-wing to rotary-wing and operator-less drones in between. Within these designs are even sub-variants charged with special mission roles.


    Beyond the military sector, aircraft play a hugely important role in civilian markets when hauling passengers to-and-fro or goods from Point A to Point B. The nation introduced the world to the 5th Generation Fighter and its warplanners are already laying the groundwork for a new stealth-minded 5th Generation Bomber still to come. Some classics - such as the Lockheed C-130 - have somehow stood the test of time while other all-new developments - such as the Lockheed SR-72 - are set to rewrite the aviation record books should they come to fruition.


    There are a total of (209) Modern and Future U.S. Military and Civilian Aircraft in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below by initial year of service descending. Flag images indicative of country of origin. Concept / prototype aircraft and those in development or consideration are also included in this listing.



    Please wait while all 209 records are loaded into this space.
