    Commonly such aircrafts are known as STOL (short take off and landing),

    or

    VTOL,(vertical take off and landing)....

    and some are known as JUMP JETS, as we heard about HARRIER air craft....commonly, we consider as VTOLs as the FORGER, HARRIER, JSF FIGHTERS,and in case of ROTARY CRAFT, can consider as V22 OSPREY.....i could see many MIRAGES, taking off from a ramp, with ROCKET ASSISTED TAKE OFFs......and can consider one more thing.....some aircrafts also considered as FRONT LINE SUPPORTS, as we know as, SUKHOI 25, "GRACH', OV 10 BRONCHO, are STOL types.......

    On a carrier then it is most likely the Sea Harrier. I presume you meant the Vertical Take-Off/Landing.

    Other possibilites are the YAK-38 "Forger" or the YAK-141 "Freestyle" or the Balzac, but video footage of them is quite rare.

    "True Lies" has a good footage of the Harrier, just dont believe all the stunts Arnie does with it.

    The Joint Strike Fighter carrier version and the Harriet Jump Jet are the ones that come to mind.

    F35 Lancer?

    The F35 is the Lightning II, the B1 is the Lancer.

    The F35 is not deployed on any carriers as of yet.

    harrier is the msot commonly seen jet, but the CV-22 Osprey is the plane that is replacing the H-53 helicopter.

    I think the AV8B is the only answer here. The F-35 can perform a vertical landing, but not a vertical takeoff.

    Yak 38 Forger

    Dassault Balzac V

    Source(s): Yeah, it's really called the Balzac
