Types of US Military Aircraft
The United States (USF) forces have always been angered by their workers and armaments, and recent events (the wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria and Libya) have shown the military strength of the United States. As far as the Luftwaffe is concerned, the USAF has some 18,234 aircraft and 6,417 helicopters.
The US military engages a naming system and a special designation for all types of US military aircraft for identification. Below is the list of different types.

Airborne Early Warning and Control Aircraft
Hawkeye E-2, E2C, E2D They are patrol aircraft that recognize air threats and command battle during the war, similar to normal air traffic control. They are also known as Airborne Command and Control Aircraft. They also provide strategic support for the air and ground forces in combat. These aircraft (depending on their versions) are able to detect long-range missiles with the help of powerful radars and generally function as airborne monitoring systems. They also provide strategic support for the air and ground forces in combat.
Sentry E-3, E-3A, E-3C, E-3G
Mercury E-6, E-6A, E-6B
Air Anti-Undersea Warfare (ASW) aircraft
Orion P-3C The ASW type of aircraft not only detects underwater threats, but also responds to surface threats and is a kind of patrol aircraft. These aircraft use various modern techniques to detect the presence of enemy forces. For this purpose, often visual sensors (use of electro-optic devices) and military models of binoculars are used. Infrared sensors (or heat sensors), electromagnetic sensors (scanning radio and electronic transmissions), magnetic anomaly detection sensors (detection of changes in the earth’s magnetic field) and radar sensors (detection of snorkel or submarines) are some of the other commonly used ASW aircraft sensors.
Seahawk SH-60B, MH-60R, HH-60
Viking S-3, S-3B
AV-8B Harrier II, Harrier II Plus These are the aircraft that are used to hit targets in an air-to-ground militia grip. They are used as close as possible to the ground forces for tight air support and / or cover. They are sometimes used to control enemy forces during the strategic war. One of the main applications of attack aircraft is Battlefield Air Interdiction, ie, the control of offshore enemy forces where no friendly forces exist. SEAD (oppression of enemy air defense) and OCA (offensive counter-attack) are two other important roles of attack aircraft.
FA-18 Hornet, F-18A, F-18C, F-18D
Thunderbolt II A-10
Lancer B-1, B-1B bombers are known for their massive destructive abilities and have the ability to cause serious damage to the target. For this reason, bombers are used only in times of war and the decimation of the hostile causes during air raids. However, bombers are expensive to make and require regular maintenance. Also it is difficult to reach an exact location with bombers. In addition, bombers are very vulnerable to interceptors and cause indiscriminate carnage.
Spirit B-2, B-2A
Stratofortress B-52, B-52H
Electronic warfare aircraft
Commando Solo EC-130J Electronic warfare refers to the use of electromagnetic spectrum (directed energy) to control the spectrum and respond to hostile forces across the spectrum. The aircraft used in electronic warfare carry anti-radiation missiles and jammer transmitters to intercept and deactivate enemy radars. The technology used in these aircraft is able to paralyze the air defense mechanism and the communications depots of the enemy. The great advantage of using an electronic warplane is that it clears the way for direct attack on enemy camps by other defense personnel.
Gray Wolves EA-6B
Compass call EC-130H
Mirage F-1, 50, 2000, III, V More commonly known as combat aircraft, they are known for their speed and are used to have air superiority. This superiority can be defensive (if combat aircraft is used in defensive airborne attacks), or it can be offensive (when combat aircraft are used in offensive counterattacking). They are from a large base at ground-friendly forces engaged in a battle. This is why fighters aircraft usually accompany the surface army during the wars rather than in air attacks like the attack aircraft.
Chengdu F-7, J-7, J-10, J-20
Strike Eagle F-15E
AC-130H, AC-130U These are a deadly type of combat weapons with immeasurable firepower. They use weapons (25/44/105 mm), cannons and howitzers to shoot targets from the air on Earth. Gunships are efficient, with the ability of far-reaching attacks from higher heights. Unlike the fighter or attack planes, the cannon ships can often orbit the target before they go beyond it. The use of gun guns has recently increased due to the vital narrow air support that the gun guns are able to provide ground forces.
119g AC-AC-119, AC-119K
U-boat AC-130U + 4
Military transport aircraft
Grumman C-2, C-2A (R) Also known as Cargo Aircraft, the services of these aircraft are very important to the army. In wartime, they are used to deploy forces in certain areas along with their devices, to provide the previously stationed personnel with equipment and other necessities, to evacuate the parachute hunters, and to deliver strategic or operative airflows. Cargo aircraft are also used to supply supplies and support humanitarian missions, especially during or after natural catastrophes.
Starlifter C-141, C-141A, C-141B
Hercules C-130, C-130E, C-130H
Multi-role combat aircraft
Growler EA-18G These are the aircraft that perform combined functions of other types of military aircraft. Depending on the military operational needs, these aircraft can perform an enlightenment function or penetrate into air-to-air and / or air-to-surface combat. They can also be used to intercept enemy forces or jamming the enemy radar (ie, enter into electronic warfare), and some of these multi-function combat aircraft are capable of operating air bombs.
Super Hornet F / A-18E / F
Combat Shadow HC / MC-130P, HC-130N
Falcon O-1, O-12, O-16 An observation aircraft is also referred to as a patrol or surveillance aircraft as it is used to check the air and surface activities of the target areas. The reason for this patrol could be the terms of a treaty, border / maritime patrol, or strategic requirements of the military. These types of aircraft are capable of flying for an extended period of time and are equipped with high-quality sensors. Because of the nature of their functions, observation aircraft are used at all times, but more extensively during the war.
Thunderbolt II OA-10A
Open Skies OC-135B
Crazy Hawk RC-7B, EO-5B One step ahead of surveillance aircraft, reconnaissance or reconstruction aircraft is a high-tech intelligence collector. It is best known for providing SIGNIT (Signal Intelligence), COMINT (Communication Intelligence), and ELINT (Electronic Intelligence). It flies at very high altitudes and is able to send confidential data from target areas in the form of cryptic messages and / or snapshots. The role of this aircraft is greatly appreciated as it has the potential to strip the target of its secrets so that the military personnel can know their enemy in front of a real face to create effective strategies for a successful battle.
Dragonlady U / R-2, U-2E, U-2F, U-2H
Rivet joint RC-135V, RC-135W
Black Hawk UH-60, UH-60A, UH-60L Often known as a helicopter, the rotary wing aircraft is an integral part of the US Army. It is used for a variety of purposes (observation, utility, freight and transportation, combat, utility, reconnaissance, etc.). Some of the military helicopters act as multi-reel aircraft and are a great asset. The search and rescue operations of these helicopters, such as those of the famous Hercules HC-130, play a very important role in personnel recuperation.
Apache A-64, A-4A, at the 64th
Chinook CH-47, CH-47D, CH-47F
VC-137, VC-25A Special Air Mission or SAM aircraft are transport aircraft used by the presidents, the First Lady, vice president, members of the Cabinet and the Congress, important national leaders and high-ranking foreign dignitaries. Every SAM aircraft that bears the President is called Air Force One. These aircraft must comply with strict quality controls and flight logs. You can definitely provide airflows in the short term, especially in emergencies or wartime.
Standby C-5, C-17, C-130
Gulfstream C-20, C-37
Boeing KC-46, KC-767 tankers are the air jets for all airplanes in an ongoing military operation of the US Air Force, Navy and, if necessary, other friendly forces. They offer aircraft during the mission aircraft to the other types of aircraft. They are able to locate friendly airplanes and detect threats directed to them. They are used in operations that extend over a longer period of time or are on a far-reaching mission, and their services become all the more important in a global commitment.
Stratotanker KC-135Q, KC-135R (RT), KC-135Y
Extender KC-10, KC-10A
Jayhawk T-1, T-1A These are the aircraft that are used to give in-flight training for the army, air force, navy and naval officers. The training aircraft are equipped with additional safety features and improvements. Almost all military trainers have a seat capacity of two, especially for the training of new recruits. The training of flight crew takes place on three levels: basic, primary and advanced. The primary training is given in a standard T-37 trainer aircraft and the specialized trainer is used only at the advanced level.
Talon T-38, T-38A, T-38C
Cessna T-51, T-51A
Global Hawk RQ-4, RQ-4A, MC-4C, EQ-4B Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), also known as drones, are remote controlled vehicles. These aircraft have the ability to be in the air for about 20 hours at a time. The best feature of these vehicles is that they keep the pilot out of their hands while they are effectively performing their functions. They are used in reconnaissance, target detection, air communication (especially with friendly forces in an operation) and combat. Although they are very expensive, increased investment is made by the federal government in the procurement of more UAVs in recent times.
Predator RQ-1A, RQ-1B, MQ-1
Hunter RQ-5A, MQ-5B, MQ5C
Martin Marietta X-23A, X-24A, X-24B They are also referred to as experimental aircraft or development aircraft. As their name indicates, X-levels are those that are modified or re-produced on the basis of research. These experiments provide a space for the discovery, invention and improvement of military aircraft. Some of these experimental aircraft have proved to be deadly (like the X-2), but there are also many phenomenal and groundbreaking successes.
Boeing (USAF) X-20, X-32, X-45, X-51
Bell X-1, X-9, X-22
The list of military aircraft is exhaustive, but only with high-profile military aircraft is not enough to have superior global air power. As in any other field, new technology is regularly developed around the world to improve airflow, and so the existing military aircraft must either be updated or replaced from time to time. For this reason, the Ministry of Defense (DOD) is making special arrangements for tactical aircraft investments from the entire military budget.
When we assert our belief in God, the love of freedom and the superior global air power, the future [of the USA] looks good. ~ General Curtis LeMay
