Modern and Future U.S. Aircraft
Military Aviation | Present
While 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.
