The F-117 Nighthawk and the B-2 Spirit. Both awesome and beautiful.

If a knife in the dark is worth a thousand swords at dawn, is a tactical nuke in the night worth a million rifles?

    I bet the bottom one has self esteem issues. The others are all sleek and shiny, so at night, he stares at the mirror and curses his own crazy, spiky-ass face.

    a tac-nuke is worth nothing but fallout in the physical as well as political sense

    These jets are beautiful, deadly, and stealthy, but there’s something to be said about the awesome power and fear that a fully loaded B-52 inspires when seeing it in the sky from the ground.

    I love the sight of negligable radar reflectivity in the morning.

    …and we shot the nighthawk down, very invisible…

    You are correct, the nighthawk was shot down. But it was not seen until after they found the wreckage. When you let your enemy know the exact time, place and route of your attack the invisibility thing becomes much less helpfull.

    It makes no difference now though since the F-117 program was eliminated due to budget cuts anyway.

    @BobTheHun: Mostly due to its limited use. You have a “fighter” aircraft that holds a very tiny ordinance. The B2 does it so much better. As will the F-22.

    It was a very awesome step into the future tho.

    @vincent.ex2: If you think amount of shit the Serbs had to go through to shoot down that Nighthawk, they fucking earned it. It also still speaks highly of its evasiveness.
