“The Nighthawk is undetectable on its first bombing run and will not be attacked by air defenses. It flies much faster than most other bombers.

General Information Edit

The Nighthawk is an event troop from Events, Chest or Sales that can be used as Troop Tactics.

The bombing route line is made from the nearest map edge. This is extremely relevant and often difficult to understand as you need to make sure that the flight path is safe without anti air towers.

Historical Description Edit

Designed by Lockheed's experimental Skunk Works division, the F-117 Nighthawk was the world's first stealth aircraft. Its existence was such a closely guarded secret that deliveries and training flights were initially conducted only at night. The model was first flown in 1981 and finally revealed to the public seven years later. Several features helped render the Nighthawk invisible to radar. The exterior consisted of flat triangular panels, giving it a unique gemlike shape that deflected and distorted incoming radio waves. Its stealth properties were further enhanced by a black radar-absorbent finish and a minimal heat signature.

The Nighthawk first entered combat alongside American forces during the invasion of Panama in 1989. Its hour of glory came during the Gulf War two years later, where it played a major role in the campaign against Saddam Hussein. While designated a fighter, it was actually used as a bomber in an air-to-ground attack capacity. From its debut until its retirement in 2008, only one F-117 was ever lost in combat, shot down by a Yugoslav missile during the Kosovo War.
