The Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk is an American single-seat, twin-engine stealth attack aircraft that was developed by Lockheed's secretive Skunk Works division and operated by the United States Air Force (USAF). The F-117 was based on the Have Blue technology demonstrator.
The Nighthawk was the first operational aircraft to be designed around stealth technology. Its maiden flight took place in 1981, and the aircraft achieved initial operating capability status in 1983. The Nighthawk was shrouded in secrecy until it was revealed to the public in 1988. Of the 64 F-117s built, 59 were production versions, with the other five being demonstrators/prototypes.
The F-117 was widely publicized for its role in the Persian Gulf War of 1991. Although it was commonly referred to as the "Stealth Fighter", it was strictly an attack aircraft. F-117's took part in the conflict in Yugoslavia, where one was shot down by a surface-to-air missile (SAM) in 1999; it was the only Nighthawk to be lost in combat. The U.S. Air Force retired the F-117 in 2008, primarily due to the fielding of the F-22 Raptor.
Can you say "boom"? The GBU-27 is a Paveway III laser-guided 2,000 lb bomb modified to be carried by the Nighthawk Stealth Attack Aircraft and intended to turn hardened concrete bunkers into softened sandy craters. The Nighthawk itself is a deadly little piece of hardware that sneaks in through radar screens, hits its target, and gets back to base. The world-famous "Goblin" was retired in 2008 but is kept in storage, should Congress see the need to call it back to the front lines.
This kit features new bomb bay and bomb parts and two sets of decals.
