Jet fighters have important role in military aviation. Military aviation is no doubt the foremost strategic weapon these days, each in terms of combat effectiveness and of crucial technologies enforced. In trendy warfare, air dominance is a must from day one, in order that air-to-surface and air-to-sea operations are often conducted safely and with efficiency. And fighting jets continually play a significant role in air dominance. With the advancement in technology several countries modernized their fighting jet to full fill the requirement of day. Here is a list of 5 incredibly advanced jet fighters; some of them are part of military aviation and other are going to be part in close to future.
5. Dassault Rafale (France)
The french Dassault Rafale comes at No. 5 among the world’s most advanced jet fighters. Designed and built by Dassault Aviation, Rafale is a twin-engine, canard delta-wing, multirole fighter aircraft. Almost entirely built by one country, Rafale is distinct from other European fighters of its era with a high level of legerity, capable of at the same time playing air domination, interdiction, intelligence activity, and mobile nuclear deterrent missions.
4. Eurofighter Typhoon (European Union)
Eurofighter Typhoon spot fourth among the 5 most advanced jet fighters in the world. Built on the strength of four European nations: United Kingdom, Germany, Spain and Italy, and their leading defense and aerospace companies. Eurofighter Typhoon is the world’s most advanced swing-role combat jet providing same time deploy-able Air-to-Air and Air-to-Surface capabilities.
3. Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet (USA)
Based on the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet, the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet is a combat-proven strike fighter with built-in versatility. The F/A-18E/F’s suite of integrated and networked systems provides enhanced interoperability, total force support for the combatant commander and for the troops on the ground. Both the F/A-18E (single seat) and F/A-18F (two-seat) models convert quickly from one mission type to the other with the flip of a switch to provide consistent air dominance.
2. F-22 Raptor (USA)
The F-22 is a multi-role air-superiority jet fighter with improved capability over current aircraft. This ultimate state of art weapon was primarily designed as an air superiority fighter, but the aircraft has some extra capabilities like Air-to-Surface, electronic warfare, and signals intelligence roles. F-22 Raptor is a stealth technology, single-seat, twin-engine fifth-generation supersonic super maneuverable fighter aircraft. >> 5 Insanely Strange Aircrafts That Actually Existed.

The F-35 Lightning II is at No. 1 to the word’s most advanced jet fighters. The aircraft is designed with the modren battle space in mind. It is the most flexible, technologically sophisticated, fifth-generation multirole fighter ever built. With advanced stealth capability, F-35 delivers innovative capabilities to meet security needs for nations across the world.
Some Other Advanced Jet Fighters:
JF-17 Thunder (China/Pakistan)

The JF-17 is intended for air defense and ground attack missions. It has beyond visual range attack capability.
Mikoyan MiG-35 (Russia)
The Russian fighter MiG-35 – stands as the ultimate evolution of the MiG-29 Fulcrum fighter series. The MiG-35 has vastly improved avionics and weapon systems, especially the new AESA radar and the distinctive designed OLS, relieves the aircraft from relying on GCI (ground-controlled interception) systems and enables it to conduct independent multi-role missions. According to Russian military, the new MiG-35D multirole fighters as an equal to the U.S. F-35 jet fighters.
