Favourite Strike Aircraft Poll


An attack aircraft, strike aircraft, or attack bomber, is a tactical military aircraft that has a primary role of carrying out airstrikes with greater precision than bombers, and is prepared to encounter strong low-level air defenses while pressing the attack.

This class of aircraft is designed mostly for close air support and naval air-to-surface missions, overlapping the tactical bomber mission. Designs dedicated to non-naval roles are often known as ground-attack aircraft.

So what's your favourite strike aircraft? Choose 6 out of 23 in the list. If you choose "Other (not listed)", please let us know what that/those missing plane(s) is/are by replying to this post. I, however, have included some helos and Vietnam-era attack aircraft in the list.

If anyone has any suggestions what other aircraft (fixed-wing, sweep variable-wing, rotary or otherwise) I can include in the poll, please let me know.

Cheers
Frankie Kam

P.S., poll closes in 14 days

The truth is, originally I had included helos as well. So I think it'll be more interesting if I include some rotary-blade and Vietnam-era aircraft in the list. I've adjusted the poll so that you can amend your choices (change your mind and re-select) before it ends; I've expanded the list to 23 aircraft; lastly, you can now pick up to 6 aircraft. if anyone can think of ways I can make the poll even more interesting please let me know.

Voted. 2 that I like the most is the far reach of the F-15 to actually throw bombs from far away, and then the A-6 Intruder
