Throughout the tumultuous years of World War II and beyond, the United States has been at the forefront of aviation technology, continually developing and deploying advanced bomber and attack aircraft. These warplanes played a crucial role in shaping the outcome of conflicts and establishing American air superiority. Let's embark on a journey through time, exploring the key aircraft that have defined the US bomber and attack aviation lineage.
After WW2, focus was on the bombers, with the development of the huge B-36, B-47 and B-52. During the 50 and 60s new attack aircraft were developed like the iconic A-4 and A-7, primarily used by the Navy. During the 80s other iconic aircraft took to the sky for the first time, like the B-1, F-117 and B-2. Latest addition to this list is the B-21 which is currently in development.
