Stealth Fighters are a type of Air Unit. They appear in Advance Wars: Dual Strike. They are able to hide themselves in a similar way as Submarines by activating stealth mode. When in stealth mode, the Stealth Fighter's fuel usage rises from 5 units to 8 units of fuel per day. This ability protects them from attacks from all units except Fighters and other Stealth Fighters. They can still be detected by any enemy unit in an adjacent square.
Stealth Fighters are like Attackers in that they can attack any units except for submerged submarines. However, their attack power is less than that of Bombers or Fighters.

Stealth Fighters can also be used as a measure of surprise attack, though be warned that after the initial wave steadfast opponents will begin fielding more anti-air units.
Even though Stealth Fighters burn through fuel when in stealth mode, they can be refueled by APC's, Black Boats, and ending a turn on an airport. By doing this, the fighters can be kept in action indefinitely.
