Top 5 Best Fighter Jets On The Market Today 2020

There is a silent competition among developed countries regarded as the world’s powerhouse to develop the best fighter jets in the world, a constant drive to build the most technologically advanced fighting jets that would be superior to others in the event of a conflict. Before delving into the specifics of the most incredible fighter jets, it would be useful to understand how they came to be.

 

F-35 Lightning II (Lockheed Martin)
The F-35 Lightning II of the United States Air Force is the best fighter jet in the world today. It has the distinct distinction of being the world’s only international fifth-generation multirole fighter jet. The plane has improved manoeuvrability and agility, as well as stealth capabilities.

 

F-22 Raptor (Lockheed Martin/Boeing)
The F-22 Raptor is a single-seat, twin-engine fifth-generation tactical fighter jet developed by Lockheed Martin in collaboration with Boeing. This plane is outfitted with cutting-edge systems that provide it with stealth, speed, control, and balance. The F-22 is an extremely manoeuvrable fighter.

The Raptor, the world’s second-best fighter jet, was developed directly before the F-35 and flew for the first time in September 1997. It was delivered to Nellis Air Force Base in January 2003 after additional testing and improvements. In December 2005, the plane was formally accepted into USAF service as an air superiority fighter. Because of its success in stealth missions, the F-22 evolved into a multi-mission fighter aircraft.

 

J-20 Chengdu
China’s flagship fighter jet is the Chengdu J-20. Chengdu Aircraft Industry Group manufactures this fifth-generation, single-seat, twin-engine stealth fighter jet. This plane is known for carrying out aerial combat operations for the People’s Liberation Army Air Force, where it is primarily used.

The aircraft has an internal weapons bay that can accommodate a variety of long and short-range, pinpoint accurate missiles, including long-range PL-12C/D and PL-21 air-to-air missiles. Because these systems are conveniently packed within the plane, the intention is clear when the weapons bay opens. The jet fighter is also equipped with air-to-surface missiles and laser-guided bombs for stealth air-to-ground bombing missions.
