-- the leading Battlefield 3 fan site, with news, updates, videos, screenshots, rumors, and more.

Battlefield 3 will feature 4 jets — a fighter for each side (US and Russia), and a fighter-bomber for each side as well. Many familiar jets will return, including the F/A 18 Super Hornet, and the Su-35.

F/A 18 Super Hornet

Battlefield 3 F18 super hornet
The F/A 18 Super Hornet is multi-role jet introduced in the US in 1983 and is capable of taking off from an aircraft carrier. The F/A 18 is one of the most widely used jets in the US military, and almost 1,500 have been built to date. The Super Hornet is the main US attack jet in Battlefield 3.

A10 Thunderbolt

Battlefield 3 A10
The A10 Thunderbolt, nicknamed the “tank killer”, was first introduced in 1972 and is still in use today. The A10 was first featured in Battlefield 2 expansion pack “Armored Fury”, and will return in Battlefield 3 as the main fighter-bomber for the US forces.

Sukhoi Su-35

Battlefield 3 Su 35
The Su-35 is the next generation fighter jet for the Russian Army, and so far, only two dozen aircraft have been built. The fighter jet is a long rage, multipurpose jet capable of air and ground attacks, and is the main attack jet for the Russian side in Battlefield 3.

Sukhoi Su-39

Battlefield 3 Su-39
The Sukhoi Su-39 is modernized version of the Su-25, which was introduced in the early 1980s. The Su-39 is the main fighter-bomber for the Russian forces in Battlefield 3.


Battlefield 3 F35B
The F35B is a short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL) jet that can land vertically, and is available in Battlefield 3 as part of the Back To Karkand expansion pack.

        Yeah a two seater would be nice, Bombing is hard so to make it easier the passnger targets land vehicles, Once its targeted it tells the pilot when to drop it so you get like 50 points for targeting and another 50 for the pilot killing, Also missles that could be launhed by the passenger. What would be really boss to though is if instead of just jumping out you should eject from eject seats giving snipers a chance to pick ya off and for a cool animation and an addicting thing to do.

          I completely agree. The F-22 is going to be one of the best fighters in history next to the F-35. The F-14 was good in all but it was way to big and slow to actually do any damage. Yea, I understand it can fly through a hurricane but still, the F-14 wouldn’t be able to keep up with either the F-35 and the F-22.

          True, but I’ve seen video footage of Australian F-22′s being out maneuvered by Mig 29/35′s in a military exercise. The Raptor has superior weapons and a stealth system, but the 29/35 can outmaneuver it once it’s spotted. I guess that would fix the balance issue. Plus, you can make like 3 or 4 Migs for the price of a single Raptor!

          Actually it is impossible that an Australian F-22 was being outperformed by ANY mig-fighter. A.) The f-22 has the greatest thrust vectoring of any production plane B.) There is NOBODY WITH an f-22 other than U.S…. If it had one engine, it was probably an f-35. Lastly, The mig is a gen 3.5 or 4… tops. Now if you said a SU34 Terminator COMPETED with it, then I would concur… even so… the F-22 took out 15 Block 60 F-16s at RedFlag which is the “most combat capable jet there is…” this statement coming from a Navy F-18 pilot i talked to… as I was under his f-18 wing shielding me from the rain getting ready for an airshow…

          The F22 is certainly not “The best fighter in the world” The most expensive? Maybe. The best? No.

          F22′s have had a pretty unsuccessful run when it comes to combat trials. Eurofighter Typhoons and Dassault Rafale fighters have given the F22 a serious beating when it comes to A2A-A2G. Dont beleive me? Google Typhoon vs F22 china lake.

          I’ve also read complaints from former raptor pilots complaining about the “stealth” for two reasons. One it doesnt work, Two because the so called radar absorbing paint that has been slapped on corrodes the jet even when it is sat on the runway.A 2 hour flight costs 30 hours of maintainance. Give us an F-15. Screw the F-22

          I love hearing people talk about how much they think they know regarding a top secret jet… the clearance needed to know the details is pretty high. Now you can spew what you think you know about that jet and while you are correct that it is grounded… it is most definitely not grounded for heat issues…. I know what it is grounded for. Also, you are 1,000 percent wrong regarding f-22 redflag competion…. the thing took out a crap ton of f-15s… the f-18 was supposed to be the f-16 but the f-16 won… the f-18 came out later for one reason and one reason only…. to replace the f14 as a carrier plane (see beefy landing gear). By the way… I know for a fact a block 60 f-16 will destroy an f-18… in fact I’d bet on the block 52 doing so as well. The f-15c will also take out EVERY f18 model… because the landing gear slows it down…. so you are wrong as heck regarding the f22. the f23 takes them all but it’s ugly as shit

        man you are sooooo stupid! Are you a F-22 Raptor fanboi or what?

        There are PLENTY of jets out there that far exceed the Raptor.

        The F-22 isn’t even produced any more because it is too expensive to make!

        There are Russian Jets out there that are cheaper, faster, more maneuverable, and has better electronics onboard.

        The F-22 is a 4th Generation Fighter,

        The Russians already have a 5th Generation fighter (SU-47 Berkut)
        and a 6th Generation Fighter (T-50 Pak Fa)

        Don’t kid yourself with this “America has the best” crap

          I’m sorry but you really don’t know what you’re talking about, don’t worry, I’m a PAK FA fan too but it is a 5th generation plane, just like the f-22 and su-47, except the su-47 was only a concept and therefore will most likely never be in production. 6th generation jets don’t exist yet, but there supposed to be capable of cyber attacks, use energy weapons and possibly only use thrust vectoring.

          Plenty of jets that exceed the Raptor? Don’t make me laugh CoD fanboi… The F-22 is a 5th gen, which means it doesn’t matter how “manueverable” the other planes are (and they aren’t anyway because of the Raptor’s thrust vectoring nozzles, and thrust-to-weight ratio) because the F-22 is an air superiority fighter. Which means it would shoot down any other fighter with an AIM127 from miles away, and the other pilot not even knowing they were there. That is today’s dogfighting. Close quarters gatling jet fights are gone. The F-15 dominated that era too btw.

          You obviously have no idea what you’re talking about. Also, for everyone else, the F-22 bested every PAK-FA and Su-47 in the Red Flag meet. Eurofighters and Hornets didn’t last 10 secs with it. Get your facts straight and stop trolling on the F22 just because it is American and happens to be the best ever made.

      The AC130 wouldnt be bad. Should sit 6 players: 1 pilot, 2 spotters, 1 gatling gunner, 1 for the 40mm canon and 1 for the 105mm howitzer :) And it should fly as fast as a hummer or ATV or something being that in real life it really flies slow and so that it doesnt get too overpowered.

        The AC-130 flies at a maximum 320 mph in the air. Cruising speed is 215. It is almost 2.5 times faster than a Hummer or ATV driving at max, at cruising speeds. It is slow for a plane, but if you haven’t noticed… planes are really fast. Oh and that outburst about “the AC-130 always relates to CoD?!” Well, in your case it does because everyone who knows about the Spectre, and isn’t in the military, most likely saw it from MW2. The only time it is talked about is when it is related to CoD. You know that’s where you’re referencing it from.

        P.S.- The AC-130 is only used by the USAF SOCOM, and is usually only used for the SEALs close air support at night, and special ops air strike missions at night.

        WTF? the F-22 doesn’t have a tail hook. It’s strictly an Air Force fighter jet. Even if it did have a tail hook, the landing gear would be too weak to handle the hard landings, and it’s lower than the aircraft on the carriers. So if it did land then it would scrape the deck damaging the bottom of the fuesalage and breaking the landing gear panels. So the F-22 doesn’t have a tail hook.

          Yeah the F-22 is flown by the USAF only and subsequently will never land on a Navy carrier. Plus it’s really expensive and costly to produce and operate the F-22 as well as the F-15, F-16 and F-18. That is why they developed the F-35: one plane 3 variants for the USAF, USN and USMC. That way they only have to manufacture parts for one plane and if one breaks they can scavenge parts from it and use them to fix another. Not to mention the stealth and other technological improvements.

          Marko said so because the serbs shot down a nighthawk circa 97′ or 98′. Also, the f117 is getting phased out for a ton of reasons…. the shape and radar absorbent paint are what gives the fighter (yes it’s classified as a fighter), it’s stealth capability. Lastly, the chinese and russians came hunting and paying for the jet when it crashed… they also allegedly reverse engineered the JHMCS Helmet.
