Within the last 2 chapters, 67 and 68, there is mention of the Flyer LSV or Light Strike Vehicle. Such a vehicle does exist, however at this time no one besides the USAF has expressed much interest in it. As the novel is set in a future time, like the day after tomorrow, equipment, weapons and vehicles described or mentioned within the novel are future tech. Not to be mistaken with science fiction, all the items are either just now being issued or have recently rolled off the line in the form of a prototype.
Here's a link to a couple of sites that talk about the Flyer Gen II LSV.
