The General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark was developed by General Dynamics in the 1960s as a medium-range interdictor and tactical attack aircraft. The aircraft is also suitable for strategic nuclear bombing, aerial reconnaissance, and as well as electronic warfare. In 1967, the F-111 Aardvark entered service with the United States Air Force. In 1973, it also entered service with the Royal Australian Air Force.
563 F-111s of all variants were built. After the F-111A, the F-111D and E models upgraded the Aardvark’s electronics and engine inlets, and increased the thrust of the engines. Another variant, the FB-111, was designed as a strategic bomber with improved engines, stretched two feet longer to accommodate additional fuel. Seventy-five of these served in Strategic Air Command units.
