Worlds best jet fighter?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what is currently, and what is projected to be the worlds best fighter jet? I have heard the f-22 raptor and some seem to think a new Sekoia. Opinions? Reasons?

'Best fighter' is a subjective and ever changing target, and can depend on many factors.
No question about that, there is no best, main;y because there are many factors; however, I am looking for input... Anybody care to put their 2 cents in?

The F-22 simply because no one else is willing to spend that much on R&D and production for one.

 

The only thing the F-22 can't do is be cheap. :wink:

Everything points (not least the Red Flag engagements) that the F-22 will wipe the skies of any current adversary with minimal loss .

Maybe in 10 years or so something better may come into service - but only if the funding is there.

The best fighter in what??? Turn fights, BVR or sitting on the runway and cost as much as possible :boxing::lol:

 

 

Winning.

 

Of course we won't know until we do Iran, but all the indicators are that the F-22 will achieve and maintain air dominance immediately. Even the US Navy is banking on this with their decision not to deploy any true fighter aircraft on their carriers.
