- Flare (electronic warfare) : An expendable electronic warfare decoy form of infrared countermeasures
- Deceptive decoy : Within the broad context of electronic warfare, which includes both electromagnetic and acoustic sensing, a device, independently launched from a target or escort, which interferes with enemy tracking or final weapons guidance
- BaE Systems ALARM : A anti-radiation missile developed by the Royal Air Force, with direct attacks and parachute-borne loiter mode, slower than the U.S. AGM-88 HARM but with more advanced search and suppression capabilities
- EA-6B Prowler : This is the main tactical electronic warfare aircraft of the U.S. military, highly effective although reaching the end of its service life through airframe exhaustion
- EF-18 Growler : The U.S. Navy replacement for the EA-6B Prowler electronic warfare aircraft

- Cluster munition : A military weapon, fired or dropped from another weapon, that releases smaller submunitions that cause the actual destructive effect
- F-4 Phantom II : An extremely successful third-generation fighter, the first effective multirole fighter, which, even after its replacement as a first-line fighter, continued in reconnaissance and suppression of enemy air defense roles well into the 1990s.
- F-16 Fighting Falcon : A relatively lightweight land-based multirole fighter, developed by the United States Air Force; co-produced with Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway and Portugal; operated by many nations and to be replaced by the F-35A Lightning II. The F-16CJ model is optimized for SEAD.
- F-18 Hornet : A relatively lightweight carrier-capable multirole fighter, developed by the United States Navy and used by several nations, including Canada, in land-based roles; a fourth-generation fighter gradually being replaced by the F-18E/F Super Hornet, and then the F-35.
- F-18 Super Hornet : A new generation of carrier-based fighter beyond the F-18 Hornet, this evolution provides an architecture with even greater expansion, especially with the AN/APG-79 AESA radar, more powerful computers and communications, and a new engine with longer range.
- F-105 : A fighter-bomber used extensively against North Vietnam.
- Operation DESERT STORM : That part of the Gulf War, beginning with the first air strikes at 02:00 local time, 17 January 1991, until the main ground assault into Kuwait, Operation DESERT SABRE
- Operation LINEBACKER II : The most intense air campaign of the Vietnam War, directed against North Vietnam to force it back to the Paris Peace Talks; a peace agreement was signed one month after the start of the 11 days of attacks
