Even with a gun the Eurofighter is still no match for a normal Hornet let alone the Super Hornet. It's a Generation behind the Super Hornet at the very least.
As for the best Dogfighter that is an easy one they should be ranked like this.
3: Super Hornet
too suspicious to find American AC covering all the 6 top spots wich they cant.
Here is a more realistic list:
1: SU-35BM. "Super Flanker"
2: F-22. "Raptor"
3: SU-30--- "Flanker"
4: MIG-35 "Super Fulcrum"
5: EF-2000 "Typhoon"
6: Gripen NG.
7: SU-27 "Flanker"
8: MIG-29 "Fulcrum"
9: F-16 "Falcon"
F-15 is too old and has restrictions off how many G's you can pull. (It would desintegrate due to airframe age)
The (Super) Hornet and Rafale are naval planes pur sang and there for have design limits.

What is the The best Dogfighting aircraft at the moment: SU-37 * F-35 * Rafale * Eurofighter * Gripen *
I think there is no real leader because every plane has got it's own benefits. The F-35 must the stealthy one and maybe gots one of the best raders. While the SU-37(not for export, shame!) has still got the best areodynamic design. www.maks.ru... The smaller planes like the Gripen, Rafale and the Eurofighter also will be rewarded in dogfighting in the future!
Let me know what you think???
PS My country also is involved with producing the F-22 and F-35, they bought 180 JSF aircraft for the next 10 years. The Royal Netherlands Airforce is still proud to be part of the deal! Let's hope it will be a wothy deal???
PS Do you guys also looking forward to Ace Combat 5 or sims at the PS3?

How can you call something a dogfight when your turning radius is half the state of Wyoming!! THERE HAVE BEEN NO DOGFIGHTS SINCE THE KOREAN WAR!
THERE HAVE BEEN NO DOGFIGHTS SINCE THE KOREAN WAR!
Essentially the A10's to lead the attack, clear surface to air missels, etc, the F18's to back them up and continue / complete the ground work and the EuroFighters to ensure the F18's are left alone.
