The short term effect was the testing and evaluating of US Cold War weapons and equipment; most of which of course no longer exist, and/or have long since been replaced. Or, as in the case of the B-52 Stratofortress Bomber, which has been updated and modernized. Cold War jet fighter aircraft used during the Vietnam War, such as the: F-8 Crusader, F-4 Phantom, F-100 Supersabre, F-101 Voodoo, F-102 Delta Dagger, F-104 Starfighter, F-105 Thunderchief, F-111 Aaardvark, A-1 Skyraider, A-4 Skyhawk, A-6 Intruder, A-7 Corsair II, Spy planes U-2 & SR-71 Blackbird, Observation airplanes 0-1 Bird Dog, 0-2 Skymaster, 0V-10 Bronco, Gunship C-130 Spectre, Attack Helicopter Cobra, and Utility Helicopter UH-1 "Huey", were all USED EXTENSIVELY and the performance tested and studied. With the following results: The F-4 Phantom REPLACED all of above listed jet fighter planes, until it itself was phased out by the F-14 Tomcat for the US Navy and the F-15 Eagle for the US Air Force. The B-52 still remains the "King" of the bombers, but is slowly giving way to the B-1 & B-2 bombers. The US Army's Vietnam War attack helicopter "Cobra" was REPLACED by the "Apache" attack helicopter. The US Army's UH-1 "Huey" was replaced by the "Blackhawk" (although UH-1's are still around). The U-2 & SR-71 were retired and replaced by satellites. The U-2 has temporarily been revived for "some" missions. The Observation airplanes were replaced by helicopters.

The Vietnam war had many effects. As we all know, the hippie revolution, was sparked by the Vietnam war. Many protests occurred all over the country at the time. People didn't want to be there. A large part of this is due to the fact of how watchful the media had become for all the negative. However, if you look at actual casualties. It may surprise you how far the U.S. was ahead. It also changed domestic politics, foreign affairs, and culture of the time. In conclusion, there were more long-term effects. The main short term effect was the hippie revolution, mistreatment of vets, and casualties.
