Whats the best airframes available to be highly manoeuvrable at very high speeds and altitudes currently

There won't be scramjet engines in fighters you've been watching the film Stealth too much. They'll just burn way too much fuel and there's no stealthy tankers at this time to help with that. There's not a chance they'd send a KC135 or KC46 in with them as they'd just be huge targets. The speeds of 6th gen fighters will pretty much be the same as now.
You also forgot they totally destroy stealth

Stealth has come a long way in the last 10 years. Long wave radar is less effective against the F-35 than other platforms. There's work that has long been rumored that is very close to making a true multi aspect stealth platform.
