F-22 Raptor is best because of THRUST VECTORING ENGINE.

There was no Viggen on the list, so i went with the Tomcat because of its speed and its cool folding wings. It just says raw power with its twin enginesn and its a moviestar.  ;)

I chose Flanker because it can engage anything that can fly.

Would be cool to see  the Flanker and the Tomcat go head to head in a friendly dogfight.
To be honest, its just mainly because i want to see both jets irl. Its hard to imagine the size of these aircraft just by looking on pics.  :)

Thanks Viggen But i wants to take the difference between thses aircrafts from others. So i got it.

You say that Tomcat is good because of speed and cool folding wings also twin engins. On the other

hand Hornet is also cool folding wings and twin engins.

Never said it was good, you asked for favourite fighter.

But the F18 do not fold it wings backward, making it meanlooking. It do not use the phonix-missile to take out several bandits, it do not enforce the same sort of respect just by looks.  :)

Yeah, the Tomcat looks really mean, I like that. The F-111 and the Su-24 Fencer look very mean as well (folding wings!). And don't forget about the Tu-22M Backfire and the Tu-160 Blackjack. It's almost a little bit sad that there are no new fighters with folding wings.

Ya thats true.......  - yes it can with R-27, it is capable of engaging manned and unmanned targets in long-range and close maneuverable air-to-air combat.
