The Sounddogs Military Sounds Archive features 731 sounds and noises in the armed forces category, including fighter jets, Humvees, tanks and other armoured vehicles.

The Sounddogs Military Sounds Archive contains an impressive collection of fighter jets, including the classic F-14 Tomcat and the Harrier Jet. Both of these jets, however, are more likely to be bound in a scrapyard than on a runway these days. If the name doesn't immediately ring a bell, the Harrier was the plane that could take off vertically because of its rotatable jets (and, yes, it did look very weird and somehow just, er, wrong).

The good old F-14 is famous for being the jet of choice for Tom Cruise (aka Maverick) in Top Gun.
