WATCH: Cold War Jet Fighter Assassin Revealed

The Cold war was a time where “containment” of Soviet Russia was paramount. This meant building a bigger, better Military that would make Russia think twice about escalating to a “hot” war.

Enter the Jet Fighter Assassin, the General Dynamics f-111 Aardvark. This supersonic, medium-range, multirole combat aircraft is now retired, but was used in a ground attack, strategic bombing recon and electronic warfare capacity in the effort to “contain” Soviet Russia.

Take a look at this video covering the details of this amazing aircraft, and let us know what you think in the comments.
