The P-51 Mustange was the best...it had good armament and plenty of munitions and was fast and reliable...thats the best plane.  WWII is my favorite war to learn about...just so you think im not just coming in this forum for no reason  :P
But dont worry because i dont forget the poeple who serve in the other wars...i like to learn about them aswell and have a good knowledge of all wars  :) so i didnt forget the rest of you that served :)

I think the F-15 has the best track record. The F-22s good, but not so usable.

I think the best is the Su-27 and its variants, mainly the ones with thrust vectoring. :o

I agree with Raptor, the F-15 Eagle has the best track record.  It was the modern fighter that all other fighters had to be measured to.  It still had much more potential that what it currently has, but leave it the the US Air Force bigwigs to shoot it down, no pun intended. 

What's the B-24 doing in this list?

WWI era:
Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter, Fokker Triplane, Bristol Spad (i think)
WWII era:
P-51D Mustang, F-6F3 Hellcat, Ju-87 (i think) 'Stuka', F-4U Corsair, B-24 Liberator, Spitfire IV (i agree), Bristol Blenheim (or however it's spelt), and the jap's 'Zeke 52's, fondly known as the ZERO.
Vietnam War era:
F-104 Starfighter, Su-17 'Fitter' (is this right???), A-6 Intruder (is this right??? Again...)
Present era:
F-15E Strike Eagle, JAS-39 Gripen, F-22A Raptor, B-1B Lancer, Tu-22 'Binder', Su-27 'Flanker', and, to be patriotic, A-4SU Super Skyhawk, Su-37 Terminator (though it's way too unstable a platform) and the famed KFIR F-21 'Lion'

Enter the junkyard.

To correct you, its Su-7 Fitter and yes A-6 Intruder is right.
