F-15SE Silent Eagle. With internal weapon bays like those in the F-22 Raptor this brand new F-15 variant shows how timeless the design really is. The same level of stealth as the F-35 Lightning II and low cost makes it an ideal fighter for the new generation. Soon to enter service with Japan, South Korea, and Saudi Arabia.

U-2 Dragon Lady, the USAF`s first spy plane. Designed to travel at incredibly high altitudes it provided detailed information on the USSR`s nuclear weapons program and was virtually unheard of until one fell behind enemy lines. To throw off the public it was painted in NACA (NASA predecessor) markings and said to just be conducting weather tests.

Northrop F-20 Tigershark, firing an AGM-65 Maverick; built as an enhanced version of the earlier F-5 Freedom Fighter/Tiger/Tiger II line. It boasted new avionics and a single large engine in place of the two smaller ones found on the F-5. Production ended after three were created, due to heavy competition from the F-16 Fighting Falcon.
