Are you sure about the whole F35 thing roniii?
I mean the whole thing seems kinda heavy and not really a fighter.
1. f/a-22 Raptor
2. Ef-2000 Eurofighter
3. f-35 JSF
2; Typhoon F.2 (Eurofighter is the manufacturer and EF-2000 was the development name - come on guys try to keep up)
3 Sukhoi Su-30

The F-35 should be replaced by the F/A-18e/f on my list. The Russain planes dont count because they're no where near operational and i doubt they will be fielded. The J-10 is not 5th generation or even third so its not even present.

The F-35 is seriously underestimated. The Eurofighter is a good plane, but without stealth its going to have difficult time in a BVR fight with a JSF.
