"The first ever stealth attacker, specialized for secret bombing runs. As the design is focused entirely on stealth capabilities the aircraft is lacking in speed and maneuverability. On the flipside, however, remaining off enemy radar allows it to use guided bombs to perform pinpoint strikes. It has unique shape comprised of plane surfaces and a special paint job in order to reflect and absorb radar waves. Known as the "Nighthawk", it gained recognition during the 1991 Gulf War for flying more than 1200 sorties without a single one of the aircraft being shot down."

Trivia

  • A notable goof in the Ace Combat games is that the F-117A is shown being capable of engaging in air to air combat, something the real Nighthawk could never do. The aircraft is also shown being equipped with an on-board cannon, despite the real F-117A never carrying any kind of gun armament, internal or otherwise. This, however, is most likely to let the player engage enemy targets like they would with other, gun-armed aircraft.
  • In the book Master File: ASF-X Shinden II, the section on the CFA-44 refers to the F-117 as the "Model-117A".
  • Also, as with the other player-controlled stealth aircraft, the F-117A Nighthawk still can be detected by the enemy radar, whereas the enemy piloted F-117A will only be able to be detected if the player is facing towards them (more prominent in Joint Assault).
  • It ties with the Typhoon for the highest number of appearances in the franchise, with 12. It also had a fictional variant in Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere, the A/F-117X NAV Hawk.
