probably. normally though, they're built with only one or two engines, due to weight and manueverability.

by the way, you should have consolidated this into your other thread.

There are no fighter aircraft with three jet engines all of the same type, however there are plenty of 3 engined transports and a few 3 engine bombers.

I can think of only two 3-engined jet fighters-

Yakovlev Yak-41 / Yak-141
Nato designation "Freestyle"
V/STOL multirole fighter, rather similar to JSF. Project is struggling on small budget, and not really going anywhere now. Some Yak-141 people jumped ship to work on JSF, while Yakovlev themselves are entertaining investors in South America and Asia to continue Yak-141 development.
engines:
1 x Kobchenko/Soyuz R-79V-300
2 x Glushenko/Rybinsk RD-41

Yakovlev Yak-36MP / Yak-38
Nato designation "Forger"
VTOL naval strike aircraft. Approximately 230 built. Operational on Kiev class light carriers and the Admiral Gorshkov. Essentially retired since 1993 as Russian Navy no longer has carriers at sea.
engines:
1 x Tumansky/Soyuz R-27V-300 (typical) or 1 x Lyulka AL-21 (only Yak-38I)
2 x Koliesov RD-36-35FV(Yak-36M), RD-36-35FVR(Yak-38)

I wouldn't say that... though I can't imagine that happening. 1,2,4,5,6,8 are the common engine amounts actually.

With Pulse Detonation Wave... you almost only need 1 or 2. I do not think 3 engines will occur.

However... different typ like you said... there are planes with different types of engines on board... but, none of them have 3.

No, not really. You ignore that the BAe Sea Harrier can reach Mach 1.3 in a dive in clean configuration. A prepared Yak-38 also reached Mach 1.2 in a dive.

Yak-141 is however the first VSTOL aircraft to accelerate through Mach 1 in level flight, with a top speed of M 1.65.

You mean planes like the B-2 Bomber which has 8 jet engines, 4 on each wing in groups of 2??

Well, I think that a B-52 is sexy, but, then again, I worked on 'em in the Air Force. (That pic is of an H model, by the way. I worked on Gs.)

Back on topic, there are plenty of commercial and private 3 engine aircraft, but I don't know of any fighters off the top of my head.
