Given that the new Russian T-50 has had its first flight, I was wondering what everyone thought was the best fighter plane in the world. Now, I am asking what the best fighter is, as in dogfighter. Bombing roles aside, what do you think is best?
I personally feel the F-22 is best, because of who would be flying it, and the support the pilot would have, without even getting into the abilities of the plane itself.
EDIT: I've left out any fighters which have not yet actually flown.
