The F-111 was a Medium range interdictor and tactical strike fighter, in many respects a jet eqivalent of the WW2 twin engined medium bomber. It entered operational service in 1968 and featured the then new technologies of the variable geometry (swing wing), afterburning Turbofans and automated terrain following radar. It had a large payload of 31,500lbs of weapons, housed in an internal bomb bay and wing pylons, as well as a top speed of around Mach 2.5 (1650 mph).

The FB-111 was the strategic bomber version to supplement and replace existing strategic bombers, pending the arrival of the B-1B Lancer. It was slightly longer, had increased fuel capacity and stronger landing gear to cope with the increased weight. It entered service in 1968 and was reconfigured for the tactical role, once the Lancer entered service in 1989 and they were finally retired from 1991-93.
