Since the days of World War 1 over a century ago, airpower has remained a primary component of war.
Long the 'Knights of the Sky', military aircraft received their baptism of fire during World War 1 (1914-1918), a war which saw a continuous evolution of the species into evermore lethal fighting machines - fighters, bombers, raiders, interceptors and the like. Far from hitting their ceiling, the aircraft continues to evolve along multiple avenues, culminating in the modern pilot-less weapons-laden drones of today - ushering in the age of unmanned flight. The next few decades will see continued growth in the field, with stealth technologies developed further and more optimistic unmanned vehicle ventures sure to follow.
