The World’s current top 10 Jet Fighters

The World’s current top 10 Jet Fighters.  

 

List compiled from Markosun combat avionics research and technical data base.

Modern Jet Fighters are the key to controlling the battlefield.  Since the introduction of the P-51 Mustang in WWII the U.S. has always put the upmost emphasis on air superiority.  If you control the air, you control the ground.

Modern Fighters are developed with cutting edge state of the art technology.  From stealth designs, advanced engines and pitch axis thrust vectoring.  Also new helmet mounted targeting displays make these jets more lethal.  But pilot training is still a major factor.

The U.S. air force, navy and marines practice more than any other military air arm in the world.  They have the financial resources to gas up the jets and keep the pilots practicing air to air combat on a regular basis.  The western Europeans and Japanese pilots also have comprehensive training.  The Russians have some of the best pilots in the world, but budget constraints don’t allow them to train as much as they would like.   The People’s Liberation Army Air Force of China only provides extra training to the elite pilots that fly their most advanced fighters such as the J-10.

Therefore many factors come into play when determining the best Fighter Jets in the World.
