    Your Favourite Military Aircraft?

    What Combat Aircraft do you really like? It could be based on how it looks, it's capabilities, features, etc....

    Mine is the Su-30 MKI (Flanker), i surely love this jet, one of the most advanced fighters in service today...i also like the F-15C because of it's kill record and looks.

    Sukhoi 30 MKI

    I'm a big fan of the SR-71. It's not really new technology, but it goes fast, high, and looks sweet.

    My old boss was a Harrier mechanic for 5 years, so I'm kind of biased towards that. How many other fixed-wing aircraft can takeoff vertically?

    I'll second the SR-71.

    I would give anything for a chance to cruise at Mach 3 at 75,000 feet! Any plane whose engines require a pair of powerful automotive V-8's serve as starters, gets my respect. Any plane whose engine can change it's own dimensions as its speed changes is also something to behold! And it looks COOL! Anyone ever read the book "Sled Driver?"

    RED VS BLUE!!!!!!!! That little internet series is hilarious!!

    I like the P-51 Mustang the most. Either that or the A-10 warthog.

    My favourite Aircraft is the McDonald-Douglas F-14 Tomcat. Sure, it may be outdated compared to today's planes, and the F-18 Hornet has pretty much taken over its role, but I still think its one of the sweetest looking aircraft ever.

    My future favourite aircraft is the Switchblade. Of course its only concept, but what a hell of a concept! ;) I dont know what to think of the F-22 though. I think that its been delayed and overpublicized for so long that the Russkies over there have already developed and finished a plane to counteract it (the Su-35). Yeah, the Su-35 is a pretty slick aircraft.

    Yes the Mirage 2000 are alright but the Mirage 2K5's are more advanced and new to the military world..they look good because of their delta wings...

    They retired the Blackbird because it's job was over and it became really old, if you made a SR-71 against a F-22 or almost any modern aircraft (F-15/F-16/ F/A-18, MiG 29) it would get taken down quite easily...SR-71 was famous for being one of the greatest aircraft in the world by breaking many important records and introducing and demonstrating new technologies...

    The JSF will be a 5th generation beast along with the F-22 when it comes into service.

    Why the hell do you guys like Warthogs? Some ugly thing...

    EDIT: lol they didnt cancel the F-22, they canceled the YF-23. I got it wrong again after readin it. N/M

    IndianPride, he means the A-10 Warthog. That things pretty much served its purpose and then some. 900+ Iraqi tanks destroyed and counting!

    I didn't want to embarass you but I knew that. They are building them right here in Dallas. Actually, Ft. Worth, but who's counting?

    The F22 Raptor is sweet. When uncle Trump keels over in his sleep I'm buying 2 of them. :)
