Unique Military Weapons

Cant recall ever seeing a thread on this topic so i thought it was time we had one... this thread is dedicated to military weaponry of any kind, from any era or nation.

There is a seemingly endless array of novel, fascinating, revolutionary or even ill-fated hardware out there so subject material shouldnt be a problem.

First entry coming up shortly...

Japans first indigenously built stealth fighter - gotta say, as 5th gen goes its not a very pretty bird at all, and looks awfully small as well

great, now Japan is trying to corner the market on stealth planes. 20 years from now they'll be a reasonably priced entry stealth plane for air forces on a budget.

To see four of these come in for a landing one right after another on Friday's or take off in the morning in order for training exercises still gives me the chills after 3 years. Our HQ office is at the end of the runway at Andrews Air Force Base just outside the perimeter. They come in and take off super fast. The noise is incredible

for some reason, even after being on the flight deck of the USS Carl Vinson and seeing/hearing lots of takeoffs and traps, the EA-6B I swear was the loudest god damned thing on that ship.

Introducing the new Honda Raptor...

Scho, that pic rocks so hard, outside of manned/unmanned stealth the F-16 is the most beautiful jet fighter ever made IMO

been a while since my intel days, but left to right it looks like an AIM-7, AIM-9, spare fuel, AIM-120, and AIM-7.

not sure what the two pods under the fueslage are...probably active ECM or laser pod?

back in my day, we didn't have these tiny little ECM pods.. We had to carry these, both ways, up hill in the snow.

Here was the main competitor to the F-15E Strike Eagle. The F-16XL was a hell of a performer. It has a climb rate of 62,000fpm

The F-15E was so amazing it beat out this gem.

Thats killer, Notorious... I wasnt aware of the XL, a pretty bird indeed

A quick check says that even though it could carry twice the ordinance of a regular 16, and carry it 40% farther, it basically lost out due to being a single engine platform
