F-35 Lightning II is a family of single-seat,single-engine and all-weather stealth multi role fighters. This fifth generation combat aircraft is designed to perform ground attacks, aerial reconnaissance and air defense missions. The F-35 has three variants including vertical take-off like a helicopter. They are equipped with laser guided missiles and bombs and will secretly blitz enemy bases into dust. The United States plans to buy more than 2500 of these aircraft. 

4.M1 Abrams 

M1 Abrams
M1 Abrams is an American third-generation main battle tank. Highly mobile, designed for modern ground warfare, the M1A1 is considered one of the best protected tanks in the world. Notable features include the use of a powerful multi fuel turbine engine, the adoption of sophisticated composite armor and separate ammunition storage in a blow-out compartment for crew safety. At a whopping weight of 62 tons, it is one of the heaviest main battle tanks in service. Three main versions of the Abrams havebeen deployed since its inception namely, M1, M1A2 and M1A2 - incorporating improved armaments, protection and electronics. These improvements and other upgrades have allowed this long-serving vehicle to remain in front-line for many years. In addition, development for the improved M1A3 version has been known since 2009.

5.Ballistic missile Minuteman III 

Ballistic missile Minuteman III
ballistic missile Minuteman III is the strategic nuclear deterrence has become less prominent since the end of the Cold War. The backbone of America's nuclear deterrence remains the 1960s intercontinental ballistic missile Minuteman III. Over the years, the long-serving missile has been modified and upgraded with better guidance systems and new rocket motors. Though originally designed to be fitted with three multiple independent reentry vehicles, The current version of the missile carries 300-kiloton weapons. The United States plans to continue to upgrade that missile, but eventually will have to develop a new ICBM to replace the Minute man III. 

6.Ohio class guided-missile submarine

Ohio class guided-missile submarines
There are three major types of submarines in the US Navy: ballistic missile, attack and cruise missile submarines. All these subs in the U.S. Navy are nuclear-powered. Ballistic submarine have a single strategic mission of carrying nuclear ballistic missiles. Attack submarines have several tactical missions,including sinking enemies' ships and subs, launching cruise missiles, and gathering intelligence.Ohio class guided-missile submarines are one of the most feared subs in the world. These submarines are equipped with 154 cruise missiles and can carry up to four platoons of Navy SEALs. The Los Angeles, Sea-wolf and Virginia class submarines are capable of performing seek-and-destroy missions, surveillance, reconnaissance, irregular warfare, covert troops insertion, mine and anti-mine operations. In addition, these subs are armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles as well. 

7.B-2 bombers

B-2 bomber

The Air Force tiny fleet of twenty B-2 bombers is the only stealth long-range strike asset in the US arsenal. No other aircraft has the range to take off from the continental United States and strike at targets on the other side of the globe inside highly contested airspace. The B-2 has unrefueled range of around 6000 nautical miles, but that can be extended up to 10,000 with aerial refueling. There is no other warplane in the US Air Force inventory, which is capable to penetrate the kinds of dense air defenses. At a whopping $2 billion price tag, this aircraftis the top most expensive aircraft jets in world.

8.The Lockheed Martin's F-22 Raptor

The Lockheed Martin's F-22 Raptor is arguably the best stealth fighter jet in existence. The F-22 is extremely stealthy and fitted with advanced avionics. Further it can cruise at supersonic speeds greater than Mach 2.25 at altitudes up to 60,000 ft for extended periods. When operating at lower speeds and altitudes,it has the ability to vector thrust from its engines-which gives it tremendous maneuverability. In short, the Raptor's combination of sheer speed, altitude, stealth and powerful sensors make it a lethal killer in the sky. 

9.US aircraft carrier fleet

world's largest aircraft carrier fleet

The U.S. Navy has the world's largest aircraft carrier fleet, with 24 in service, 2 under construction, 2 ordered and 15 planed. Largest and latest of these warships is Ford class super carrier.
