Today we are at the fifth generation of fighter jets. Fifth-generation fighter jet classification includes fighter aircraft with technologies that were developed in the first part of the 21st century. Even if there is not a standard set of features that a fifth-generation jet should include, there are few characteristics that these fighters normally have.

Features like stealth ability, advanced avionics features, highly integrated computer systems that have networking capability, light airframes with super speed performance, low probability of intercept radars are main among characteristics that fifth generations include. Aircrafts such as F-35 Lightning II, F-22 Raptor of USAF, Sukhoi Su-57 of Russian Air Force, Chengdu J-20 of Chinese Air Force are considered fifth-generation fighters.

These advanced features are impressive but they also increase the production cost of fighter jets. If you ever wondered how much these top jets cost, we have compiled the 10 most expensive fighter jets in the world from least expensive to most expensive. Enjoy!
