As of now to my knowledge,there isnt any aircraft yet created which can match the speed of the Blackbird.Most known fighter jets has only a maximum
service ceiling of 60000 ft.The Blackbird can reach up to 80000ft. SR-71's maximum speed is almost mach 3,much faster than present day jets which
only reach a maximum of mach 2.2. Speed and altitude are also big factors when it comes to dogfights.So if the question is as of today is there any
which can match up to the blackbird.Unfortunately there isnt any yet. If there are any, then certainly is must be able to catch up with the blackbird
in terms of speed, altitude and manuverability.
