F/A, released as Fighter & Attacker in the United States, is a vertical scrolling shooter arcade game, that was released by Namco in 1992; it runs upon Namco's NA-1 hardware, and was the fourth game from the company to display the Federal Bureau of Investigation's "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen in its attract sequence as well as the second since Toy Pop to not use a Yamaha YM-2151 for music.

The players must take control for two of sixteen different aircraft (the Japanese F-15J and F-4EJ, the American YF-23A, F-16AFTI, YF-22A, F-14D, A-6E, F/A-18E, X-29, A-10A and F-117A, the Swedish JA-37, the British GR.5 and MRCA IDS, and the French ACM and MIR 2000); all have different firing and bombing patterns, and unlike other vertical scrolling shooters (where players have an amount of lives), both players' chosen aircraft will only have one life, with an energy bar (marked as "ARMOR") at the bottom of the screen, and if it gets depleted, the game will immediately be over for that player.
