The plane is mentioned in the previous section has a lot to contribute to modern air combat, but the following five new fighters actually create the revolution to destroy the steel birds.
Five. F-16 Fighting Falcon

Two. U.S. F-4 Phantom and MiG-21 Russian
Along ranked second in the list of the most formidable fighters of all time is the American F-4 Phantom and the Russian MiG-21 by about equal strength of these two fighters.
