The F-117 Night Hawk is probably the most important aircraft to enter service in the past two decades. Stealth technology is the 117's main asset. Eleven aircraft were used in the Gulf War to help bring the allied coalition to victory. This aircraft has a range of 700 miles and carries advanced weapons.

Lockheed F-117A Nighthawk

Designed and developed by Lockheed, the F-117 was the first operational aircraft conceived with stealth technology. It first flew on June 18, 1981, but was not officially acknowledged until 1988, when the Pentagon released a grainy, unrevealing photograph to the media (the aircraft itself was not seen by the public until 1990). With no afterburners and a shape designed to deflect radar signals, the F-117 is subsonic but effective. It has an automated planning system, sophisticated navigation and infrared target acquisition. It has been used several times in combat, most notably during the Persian Gulf War. It was retired in 2008, replaced by the more formidable F-22.
