First Stealth Aircraft that Shock the World: F-117 Nighthawk

For so many decades, the F-117 Nighthawk offered the United States military the ability to slip through enemy defenses undetected. Additionally, the Nighthawk also had a highly technical precision weapon system that would allow the U.S air force to hit targets. However, the Nighthawk is also a victim of the first-generation stealth technology because it limits the number of roles the jet could perform!



The F-117 Nighthawk has an appearance that strikes fear in the heart of enemies. Not that you’re going to see this plane coming, it was revolutionary when it came into service in 1983, and for the first years of its existence, the plane was kept secret from the public!

Here are things you didn’t know about the F-117 Nighthawk!

I haven't much looked into this aircraft, but doing a quick wiki scan through - I can't believe it's powered by just two General Electric F404 turbofan engines (Non-afterburning), would have expected much larger engines.

It seemed so, and it would take something absolutely perfect to beat the already perfect.
