Vulnerability/Penetration Testing Tools

I am in the process of researching a wide variety of penetration testing tools and vulnerability assessment tools. I've already researched many of the commercial tools like Coresecurity's Core Impact tool and even know a bit about the new tool that saint is about to come out with. What about open-source tools?

Are there any open source tools like Core Impact that allow you to not only scan a network for vulnerabilities but then allow you to issue attacks against those vulnerabilities? I'm interested in both windows based and *nix based tools. Yes I am aware of nessus, exploit tree, metaspoloit etc... but none of those really have the "identify then attack" type of structure... they are either "identify" or "attack".
