Fighter jets are small military airplanes that are made to fight other airplanes. They are often fast, having aerodynamic shapes (shapes that make them move through air easily) and very powerful engines for their small size.

They also usually are maneuverable (turn well). Fighters can carry many different kinds of weapons, and while they may be used as attack aircraft to attack vehicles, soldiers, or buildings on the ground, they are different from bombers because they are mainly designed to attack other airplanes.

Check out this incredible afterburner footage featuring a MiG-29K fighter jet as it takes off from an Indian aircraft carrier during recent test flights with Russian pilots. Doesn't it look magnificent?
