Top 5 Technically Advanced Military Fighter Jets in 2017
Technology is booming day by day. But still, there are some technologies in the world which are so advanced that either they are only used by the army/military for high operations or only some of the billionaires who could afford them. Today here, we are presenting before you the top most advanced military fighter jets. These are the most technically powerful and more developed than rest of the remaining in the world till 2017. So here they are…
Top 5 Most Advanced Military Fighter Jets in 2017
The world’s first stealth aircraft costing only 2.1 billion $ is the first one topping the list. Military aircraft designers had learned of a new method to avoid missiles and interceptors, the concept was to build an aircraft with a body that deflects & absorbs radar signals so that none or a little was reflected back to the transmitter.If you are lucky then you can ride this with your mate as it is a two seater classic.
Right now it’s topping the list among world’s most advanced stealth aircraft making B-2 Spirit lying after it. There are 64 F-117 in the world;59 of them are combat and the remaining 5 are just the Prototypes(Show Off..). “F” is usually an air-to-air fighter, “B” is usually a bomber, “A” is usually a ground-attack aircraft, etc. (Examples include the F15, the B-2, and the A-6).
Note: Before coming to next aircraft I would like you to know something about 5th Gen Jet Fighter. It is a jet fighter classification used around the world that is composed of the most advanced jet fighter generation. Lockheed Martin(To aim better)defining them as having all-aspect stealth even when armed , LPIR (Low probability of intercept radar ), high-performance body, advanced avionics features, and highly integrated computer systems capable of networking with other elements within the battlespace for situation awareness (Just like Skype with family on serious mode).
Developed by United States Air Force (USAF), the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor is a 5th Gen, 1-seat, twin-engine, all-weather stealth tactical fighter aircraft. As a result of the Fighter program, this aircraft was designed primarily as an air superiority fighter but it also has a ground attack, electronic warfare, and signal intelligence capabilities.
Lockheed Martin which built most of the F-22’s airframe and weapons systems and did its final assembly, while Boeing provided the wings, aft fuselage, avionics integration, and training systems.A total of 195 is built all across the Globe out of which 187 are used in the combat grounds while the remaining 8 are used just for testing.
Even though this craft is 4rth on the list but it’s the first which is of Russia’s origin(1st 5th Gen from their side). It is a stealth, single-seat, twin-engine jet fighter aircraft, multi-role fighter. It has supercruise, stealth, super maneuverability, and advanced avionics to overcome the prior generation of fighter aircraft as well as ground and maritime defenses.
Last but not the least China also recently started developing its 5th Gen aircraft and came into this market with Chengdu J-20 being their first one. Hence, it came back in March 2017.Its nose and canopy are similar to that of F-22.
There were also others on the list but these are the best among best. But still, there is no competition in the market against these beauties.
