In this video, we have examined the world's top 10 fastest fighter jets.. VSB defense, provides a unique excellent video of data concerning today's world military powers. Over 50 world military powers, (army, air force, land forces, naval forces, special forces) are considered in the ranking which allows for a broad opportunity of comparisons to be achieved concerning relative military strengths. To put this into perspective, the Tomcat F-14 was made in 1974 with a top speed of 2,485 km/h. The F-22 Raptor was made in 2005 with a top speed of 2,414 km/h. Over 3 decades apart and the F-14 is still faster. A masterpiece of a jet. I was a crew chief on the FB-111A, the patch on my shoulder said FB111-A Mach 2.5 Mach 2.5 is 1918.173 mph or converted to 3086.72179 km/h and I'm not even sure they are still in service. The top speed of anything America flies is need to know information as to know the actual top speed may border on breeching National Security. To me? these numbers are predictions, kind of like the weather. Go ahead, whip out your crystal ball and make some more "Predictions". My favorite aircraft was the F4 Phantom.
