Aeroplanes are fixed wing aircraft that may be driven by either propeller or jet type engines. Their use in IB is relegated almost entirely to military use, as the technology - dating from Santos Duval's invention in the early 20th century - was never fully deployed in the face of superior alternatives (airships, for example). Highly divergent types of aeroplane, such as the ekranoplans, flying fuselages, and the aerotowers are creating new uses for this otherwise weird and unusual technology.
