I'd go with JSF, coz of it's STOVL and stealth capability.

Of the above aircraft, only the MiG-29, F-14 and F/A-18 have seen war-like conditions. If you're looking for the best naval fighter, the F-14 Tomcat will be at the top of the list. It was designed as a fighter based around the AIM-54 Phoenix missile, and would still give any other fighter a good run for their money. The F/A-18 Hornet is a multi-role aircraft, not specialising as much in the role of fighter as the F-14 does. The MiG-29 Fulcrum takes on a similar role to the F/A-18, though not as technologically advanced.

The JSF is still in the prototype phase, so we can only speculate on its future capabilities. The Dassault Rafale and Eurofighter Typhoon have a potential, but I think if the Russians get Israeli help on their Su-33s, this Flanker variant will take the place of the F-14 in modern naval capability.
