An interesting dogfight

Pick the two planes that you think would make the longest dogfight and put up a good fight.

I picked the F-16 and EF-2000 Typhoon. There both great planes. I think they would make a good dogfight.

Typhoon against the F-22... let's see if the F-22 can manage in the WVR arena against the latest agile Euro delta.

F-22 and F-15E. Interesting to see two of the most reputed fighter-bombers fight it out.

P.S. The '18 isn't great by me... ;)

I think the most interesting dogfight would be between an F-15C Eagle and an Su-27 Flanker - no holds barred...all out...without political interference...the Cope India excercise flown by both American F-15C's and Indian Su-30MK's (I think that was the variant)  didn't tell the real truth. 

Put them up against each other again...equal pilot skills...equal armament and go at it!

i think a Eurofighter and a Gripen would make a good fight. They are both agile and have good combat systems. The Sweedes train their pilots well, and so do most of the Euro countries.

now that i think about it, a Eurofighter, Rafale and Gripen would make a great fight

3 way. Hey, i didn't think of that.

Then It'll be... B-1 against Tu-160. Ramming only.  ;D just kidding.
How about chopper air to air fights, then? Maybe a fight between the Eurocopter Tigre/Tiger, The AH-64 Apache (no longbow), and the Kamov Ka-52. This will be fun, no doubt about it  >:D

make it a fatal-four-way and add the South African Attack Chopper (whats it called??)

and you could even have a MI-24 versus Huey versus BlackHawk...
Personally i think the Hind would win because ive heard it carriers Russian Side Winders!!

I'll stay on the ground with the patriot missile defence system while you guys are wasting fuel way up there.  ;D

Russian choppers are real great, but their fighters are... dubious...  ;)
