Aerosmith (エアロスミス Earosumisu) is the Stand of Narancia Ghirga, featured in the fifth part of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, Vento Aureo. Aerosmith has the appearance of a miniature fighter airplane equipped with machine guns, a bomb, and a radar that detects all source of CO2 in the vicinity.
The Stand has the shape of a toy airplane piloted by a very small pilot named Mr. Smith (スミスさん Sumisu-san) inside. The plane itself can be described as a propeller monoplane fighter in a tractor configuration (the propeller situated at the front), given features resembling eyes and a mouth. Its wheels are retracted under the fuselage, and its weaponry includes two machine guns under the wings and a single bomb attached under the fuselage.
Narancia has a unique method of recalling Aerosmith by spreading his arms horizontally and making the Stand land on them like a runway.
The colored manga and most media featuring Aerosmith portray it as a blue and purple plane. The PS2 video game adaptation portrays it as a white and pink Stand. The anime adaptation portrays it as a primarily red, gold and silver plane.
Aerosmith is a powerful battle-oriented Stand possessing not only a wide array of powerful weaponry to destroy its enemies but also boasts above-average nimbleness due to its nature, size, and good range. Moreover, its ability to detect carbon dioxide makes it a great scout and radar.
Machine Guns and Bomb
Aerosmith is equipped with small machine guns on its wings shooting tracer bullets with infinite ammunition and a single bomb which it can drop on its enemies.
Despite their reduced size, the weapons are still deadly. The tracer bullets can set gasoline on fire and shoot through a human body; the bomb has the power of a grenade. However, due to the Stand's poor precision, Narancia prefers to unleash Aerosmith's full arsenal with reckless abandon in a short period of time to compensate. As a last resort, the propeller itself can be used as a blade to slice enemies.
Carbon Dioxide Radar
Aerosmith also has a carbon dioxide radar that Narancia can use to find an enemy's position through their breath when they exhale.
While active, a small mechanical radar levitates near Narancia's face, specifically his right eye, allowing him to see the location and size of sources as circular blips on the radar. This makes it ineffective when there is a big crowd or large fire, as it is unable to distinguish between sources, though Narancia is capable of deducing the sources based on the behavior of an individual source. The heavier the carbon dioxide emission from a given source on the radar, the larger the blip will appear. Narancia can also adjust the sensitivity of the radar in order to pick up sources on the level of small animals and even insects.
