I think I'm going to have to go old school on this one and say the best would be the saddle. Cavalry dominated the battle ground for how many centuries? Tanks and choppers unit are merely the modern equivalent of ancient horse squadrons.
But the A-10 without question one of the coolest out there.

When Ugh the caveman found out he had a better chance of winning a fight by attacking when his foe wasn't looking the "Art of War" was born.
In most cases better strategy will win over better weapons, with exceptions for huge jumps of technology, and cases of exceptional heroic effort. (and the odd total good/bad luck issues)
The Art of War
20. Whether the object be to crush an army, to storm a city, or to assassinate an individual, it is always necessary to begin by finding out the names of the attendants, the aides-de-camp, the door-keepers and sentries of the general in command. Our spies must be commissioned to ascertain these.

The Medevac and SAR helicopters and their crews. No other device developed for the military has saved as many lives, both military and civilian.
