For me, it would either be the F-15E or the F-22

Usually I refer to the superplanes, but I'll have to plug in my PS2 to find out for myself, by trying to find the corner speed and turn at said speed, while counting the amount of seconds it takes to turn.

 

Even then, man I'd need to be a nerd. And I barely noticed any differences in turn rate for the most part in ACZ and AC 5 since the FMs for all aircraft are practically the same.

I'd say the X-02 Switchblade, as seen in AC04, but since I haven't used superplanes, or most anything other than the Flankers, for the rest of the games, I feel I lack a thorough understanding of the subject.

I'm telling you, the F-15E can make a tight turn because it can decrease speed fast. It's great in a dog fight with Mobius. (I fixed my PS2 btw)

Speed increase and decrease has nothing much to do with turn radius. It's keeping the plane at corner speed that makes it turn best.

 

Again, I need to plug in my PS2 to test.

Yellow's guess of the X-02 being up there is accurate.  When I played, however, I found the Typhoon easily challenging it.  The likes of Su-47, Su-37, F-15S, and F-22 all do pretty good themselves but the Typhoon slightly edges them all out in Zero.
