American Air Power – The Strike Fighter’s Role :18 (2 Videos)

Strike Fighters:                                                     Part 1 and 2 of 2

Strike Fighters! The strike fighter is the most versatile of modern combat aircraft. Part fighter, part bomber, these aircraft excel in both offensive and defensive air combat. The Harrier jump-jet, A-10 Warthog, and British Tornado are among the hottest strike fighters in the world today. Examine the next generation of joint strike fighters, the F-35 Lightning II series, and see why this aircraft is expected to dominate the skies for decades to come.  Take a look into our latest Strike Fighter Weapons Systems and glance back at where we were almost a century ago during the First World War, when the U.S. had no fighters of its own and was compelled to use those produced by our Allies, Great Britain and France.
