Aircraft by Type - Fighters, Bombers, Helicopters and More
Aircraft can be designed to accomplish a variety of roles over the battlefield - this section details just that.
World War 1 spurred development of many different aircraft types based on over-battlefield need. This gave rise to fighters and bombers and, from this, arrived sub-groupings to cover reconnaissance, interceptors and the like. Today, the multirole aircraft has redefined the military warplane by providing nearly a single source for all of the over-battlefield needs required by warplanners.
