* JobStealingRobot: EDI. He's the whole idea. And Gannon is the only one of the team that is seriously pissed about it.

* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Ben Gannon lives and dies by this belief. He does the Rangoon bombing run because he believes it's right for a human to do it ([[NiceJobBreakingItHero although it ended up causing all of the problems of the film]]), and when he discovers that Wade never returned to the carrier and is TrappedBehindEnemyLines, he disobeys direct orders, risks [[spoiler:and loses]] EDI and causes what may be considered an act of war on North Korean soil to go rescue her.

EDI learns it as well, and the first time he applies it he causes massive amounts of nuclear collateral damage which it cares none about and nearly causes an act of war against Russia.

* MilitaryMaverick: Ben Gannon performs a bombing run that could have probably ended with multiple blocks of Rangoon destroyed and thousands dead if he had done it wrong in a moment of unapologetic JerkAss thinking (that EDI, a highly precise machine that could not be affected by G-forces, was not adequate for the job). This act (which is promptly learned by EDI) is the cause of all the problems that follow afterwards.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The powers that be want EDI to learn from the three mains. It watches and learns from Ben that getting the mission done is more important than following orders from that stupid stunt in Rangoon. If Ben had JUST let EDI take the damn shot... we wouldn't have a movie.
* NomDeGuerre: averted, unusually for a jet-fighter movie. Gannon's call sign is "Big," Purcell's is "Easy" and Wade's is "Guns". ...Okay, maybe now we know why they don't use 'em.

* {{Fanservice}}: Bikini-clad Jessica Biel? Yes, please. Doubles as a ShirtlessScene for Josh Lucas, and it's certainly just as nice for the chicks and non-heterosexual males in the audience. (Also, Biel's extremely... snug legwear wriggling through the undergrowth later on.)

The United States Navy has built three new top-of-the-range fighter jets called F/A-37 Talons. From over 400 applicants, 3 pilots are chosen to fly them; smart hotshot Lieutenant Ben Gannon (Josh Lucas), tomboyish Lieutenant Kara Wade (Creator/JessicaBiel), and street-wise, philosophical Lieutenant Henry Purcell (Creator/JamieFoxx). When the three are flown out to the aircraft carrier USS ''Abraham Lincoln'' in the Philippine Sea where the jets are, they learn the navy's developed a fourth jet; unmanned artificial intelligence "EDI" ([[FreudWasRight Extreme Deep Invader]], no relation to [[MassEffect2AntagonistsAndNpcs/NormandyCrew that EDI]]).

* EmergencyRefuelling: An odd tanker craft, which is basically a giant automated dirigible[[note]]Called a Camel Hump[[/note]], orbits an area, and refuels any craft that can reach it. After EDI goes nuts and requires fuel to continue on its rogue mission, the Navy tries to scramble its codes so that EDI will have no choice but to return to the carrier and refuel. EDI would have none of this, shoots the drogue off, and refuels anyway. When Gannon attempts to refuel his aircraft, he arrives to see a cloud of fuel, and while he refuels, EDI gives Gannon a ReasonYouSuckSpeech, ignites the cloud of fuel, and leaves. Gannon [[spoiler: barely manages to get away before the Camel Hump explodes in an fire ball large enough to be seen from space.]]
