Try this MiG-31 setup I stumbled upon. Faster than a Fregata maxed out, tougher than an A-10. Can smash through targets like a brick through plate glass.
Spoiler

Engine: Turbo RAMJet
Wing: Thornback Fin
Armour: Either TiAl or Extra Hardpoint depending on what you want to do
Avionics: Advanced Fire Control system


My F/B-22.. not the most graceful thing out there, but helped me get thorugh mission SP02 on Ace, no checkpoints but high 90s damage.
Engine: Uranus
Wing: Extra Hardpoint
Armour: Adv. Titanium
Avionics: Salamander

thoughts on OP while comparing them to my current setups:

F-15E
Is Rocket Motor MOD that good? I generally avoid using weight-increasing parts.

F/B-22
This is a bizarre setup. On that note I have never tried using Uranus engine. Is it any good?

SU-37
Wow, for once mine is actually the exact same as the one in the OP. It handles more than well enough though, so I was thinking whether maybe it can use another weight-adding parts, even though I can't decide, and I cringe at taking off the very-ideal parts currently equipped.

F-14D
I have Argus rather than Ace's Amulet, because of this plane's low base A2A/A2G stats.

Cariburn
hmm I use Adv Titanium armor. Does it really make sense to use Special Alloy armor considering the huge decrease in defense? On paper I would imagine the higher defense to be better than surviving 1 extra shot. (assuming I understand how Special Alloy armor actually works)

Fenrir
Again with the Rocket Motor.. I use Hayabusa Engine. I also use AMFD rather than Hawkeye. (not to mention Hawkeye doesn't seem to apply to third person view which is how I fly)

Falken
I have no avionics equipped! why would I decrease A2A, but on that note, emergency APS doesn't decrease A2A yet I don't have that equipped anyway...

edit:
ok here's my contribution

Varcolac
Engine - SCRAMJet Engine
Wing - Extra Elron
Armor - Light Armor
Avionics - GAF-1 Type HS


This can exceed a speed of 3400, but goes 2829 at level 800 altitude. Way too much overkill for hunting scorpions though.

Some other info I took down from testing speeds which I found interesting. All speeds below are at a level 800 altitude. (the starting altitude in mission 19 Desert Gust)

2614 - above Varc setup, but with Turbo Ramjet
2570 - above Varc setup, but with Rocket Motor Mod
2399 - above Varc setup, but with GAF Type AA (also it takes a relatively long time to actually reach 2399)

2614 - my Fenrir (Hayabusa engine, Light Armor)
2586 - my Mig-31 (Adv Actuator, Light Armor, no engine)
2216 - my X-02 (Light Engine, Light Armor, Adv V Sweep Wing)

really, there is no perfect plane in this game... if there was; then i wouldnt have a single online win.
i guess it kinda makes sense.

btw, who actually uses and enjoys argus and salamander? i hate those two parts...
