in case of air superiority it is definitely the Typhoon. in case of of multi role fighting it is the rafale. and in multi roling, affordability, workload on technicians it is the gripen

It is hard to tell but I think the EF-2000 is the overall best in air to air and air to ground.

Which ever is the best, and how do you deceide which is best is all matter of perspective.

Each will excel at diffirent roles depending upon mission requirments, pilot training, weather conditions, SAM & AA defences etc.

Ask the question on how they would rate against current & next generation US & Russian fighters in any configuration and mission.

I don't know the answer but the rafale looks great>

The best probably the Eurofighter, the most versatile the Rafale (it has a navy version too!) and the most affordable and the best-looking the Gripen.

probably the eurofighter, but the gripen's definitely the coolest. taking off from a road scores definite cool points!
