Meet the Stealthiest American Fighter Jet of Future
‘Stealth’ doesn’t have the ring it once did, but you would be wrong for not thinking that it is still such a huge technological breakthrough. Since stealth planes became common knowledge back in the late 80s/early 90s, their fanfare has died down, leaving many to wonder whether this tech was all some kind of trend. After all, stealth planes do not have air-to-air capabilities and are barely faster than the B-52 stealth bomber, which debuted some 30 years before the F-117 Nighthawk took to the skies in 1983. America still sees stealth as a necessary arm of its aerial dominance, while Russia and China desperately try to catch up. So it’s worth reminding about this landmark tech and how it will be changed in the future.
