US Marine Corps AV-8B Harriers

The US Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier performs vertical takeoff and landings. It has 22,000 pounds of thrust which gives it the ability to hover like a helicopter and then blast forward like a jet at near-supersonic speeds. This aircraft is used for multiple missions, which include attacking and destroying surface and air targets, escorting helicopters, engaging in air-to-air defense, providing reconnaissance and applying offensive and defensive support with its arsenal of missiles, bombs and an onboard 25mm cannon.
