An air superiority fighter is a type of fighter aircraft intended to gain air superiority in a war, by entering and seizing control of enemy airspace.

They are usually more expensive and procured in smaller numbers than multirole fighters.

Famous quotes containing the words air, superiority and/or fighter:

    More beautiful and soft than any moth
    With burring furred antennae feeling its huge path
    Through dusk, the air liner with shut-off engines
    Glides over suburbs
    Stephen Spender (1909–1995)

    Fashion understands itself; good-breeding and personal superiority of whatever country readily fraternize with those of every other. The chiefs of savage tribes have distinguished themselves in London and Paris, by the purity of their tournure.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A pleasant smell of frying sausages
    Attacks the sense, along with an old, mostly invisible
    Photograph of what seems to be girls lounging around
    An old fighter bomber, circa 1942 vintage.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
