Stealth aircraft are designed to avoid detection from radar using different kinds of technologies that minimize the emission or reflection of radar. Typically, stealth aircraft had angled surfaces that sacrificed aerodynamic efficiency to block out radar. Stealth tech was at its peak during the early 2020s but soon quickly became obsolete with the arrival of improved ground radar in 2028. With stealth tech virtually obsolete, many 4th Generation fighters stayed in service longer than most 5th Generation fighters. With performance now being the most important factor to an aircraft's success, most new fighters reverted back to the more smooth, aerodynamically efficient shape of most pre-Gen 5 aircraft.
