Too Long; Didn't Read
The F-16C, F/A-18C, JF-17 and Mirage 2000C are the best modern fighters. Modern multirole fighters are the most versatile and cost-effective. The F/16C can do everything from air-to-air combat to carrier takeoffs and landings. The JF17 Thunder can do most missions DCS World has to offer with different weapons with many of the same general methods that the F/18 and F-A-16 can.
