5.) Eurofighter Typhoon
Back in 1986, the Eurofighter cartel was created by Italy, the UK, Germany and eventually Spain created a new multi-role combat aircraft, advanced as a beyond visual range interceptor equipped with a secondary ground-attack capability. The Eurofighter Typhoon contains advanced missiles that are designed in Europe. It is also equipped with a rather modern and compatible avionics package. It is said that Typhoon is half as combat effective as the famous American F-22 Raptor. It is only an estimate, but apparently, it seems that Typhoon is actually superior to the F-15F, French Rafale, evolved Russian Su-27 variants and various other aircraft. The Eurofighter Typhoon will mark the essence of European air power until later on in the 21st century.
4.) Dassault Rafale
The Dassault Rafale is in service both with the French Air Force and the French Navy. The multi-role fighter contains some of the very newest avionics systems. Also, certain tasks were managed in order to lower the radar cross-section of this aircraft. The Rafale is very operable. The Rafale can keep track of 40 different spotted targets and fire at four of these targets at the same time. The aircraft can easily compete against the latest edition of the American F-16. The Dassault Rafale will mark the essence of French air power until later on in the 21st century.
3.) Mikoyan MiG-31
The MiG-31, otherwise known as NATO designation Foxhound-A was created to be a part of a general program to allow the Soviet air defenses to meet the dangerous threats of NATO low-level strike aircraft and cruise missiles. The Russian interceptor contains a high speed, altitude, and rate of climb, but it does give up mobility in order to earn these incredible features. The MiG-31 is amongst the quickest creation aircraft. It implements missiles to shoot-down enemy aircraft from far away. The newest edition is the MiG-31BM; which is advertised as a true multi-role Foxhound, with the ability to take on the long-range interception, precision strike, and defense suppression duties.
2.) Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet
These days the Super Hornet qualifies the most to be US Navy’s multi-role fighter. It is able to take action against both targets of either in the air or on floor surfaces. Aside of this, The Super Hornet is also in service with Australia as their primary fighter aircraft. The F/A-18E/F is a bigger and more maneuverable version of the F/A-18C/D Hornet. The Super Hornet is equipped with the latest engines. It also contains extra hardpoints and can fit more missiles. This aircraft has grown range because of its bigger internal storage of fuel. The Super Hornet has also made avionics better. Some tasks were also managed to lower the radar cross-section of this aircraft, as well.
1.) McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle
The F-15 Eagle is a purpose-constructed air superiority fighter that is produced to pierce through enemy defense. Even though it is currently in service for well over 30 years, it is still a formidable and honorable warplane. The aircraft achieved over 100 air kills and is known as one of the most accomplished Cold War era fighters.
