Ground-Attack, Close Air Support,
and Fighter-Bomber Aircraft

In this chapter, there are examples of both hostile and friendly ground-attack, CAS, and fighter-bomber aircraft. These aircraft will perform a variety of missions to include reconnaissance and interdiction in the forward areas.

Most aircraft shown can and will perform several roles. For example, the F/A-18 Hornet and MiG-21 Fishbed are used in many roles, depending on the model and type of the aircraft. For the most part, all the aircraft depicted here will be seen performing missions over the modern battlefield.

For each aircraft, there are line drawings, general data, WEFT descriptions, user countries, photographs, and aircraft manufacturer information. Line drawings are not to scale. The following illustration shows general-attack, CAS, and fighter-bomber aircraft WEFT description features.
