SR 71

Not really a "fighter" jet

F14 has always been my favorite but I like the F35 too

F-15 beats them both by a mile. Sorry.

Best between those two? Probs superhornet.

If you are talking solely about tactical fighter role I would say the F-16 or maybe the F-15.

If you ask me what aircraft I would want on a mission and I could only choose one aircraft (and assuming my side already has air superiority) I would say the 'hog.

More planes were shot down with a Sopwith Camel than any other aircraft.

As far as overall combat record, the f-15 has like a 45-0 combat record. Pretty amazing airplane.

Now, if you're talking about planes that changed the course of aerial combat,

Correct,

We should break it down into eras.

Sopwith
P51
Phantom
F-15
Then your JSF
