F-117 Nighthawk
The air doesn't have time to get out of the way, and it gets compressed a lot by the nose of the airplane. So, the shape of the nose becomes very important, and a needle nose is best to avoid compressing (and heating) the air, which is very inefficient and wastes a lot of fuel. www.richard-seaman.com
The Nighthawk has a wide range of weaponry at its disposal including laser guided missiles and air to air weaponry. www.youtube.com F-117A Nighthawk drops 1000lbs GBU-24
