top BR currently should be something like 13.7 or something like that.
13.7 - All F-16 except the Netz/Block 10 because no BVR and while you can go past that weakness, doesn’t mean it is equal in capabilities with the ones that have BVR. F-14B/MiG 29s/M2k-5f.

(1) . I don’t know where it fits best… AIM-7Fs are not the best, no all aspect IRs, yet it is capable and AIM-54As work, so i don’t know where it fits best.
(2) Yes K2K has P3s, yet IRs that can be flared and no BVR and it’s not the most maneuverable plane for the bracket it plays .
(3) It could be lower , but AIM-9Ls , i don’t want it to be possible to meet planes without flares. Also it is a strike fighter, it doesn’t have to be perfect in A2A.
(4) PD, All aspects, bad platform … yet lower it will have serious advantages when down tiered.
(5) It has IRCM … could go lower but it shouldn’t.Could go up but it will be useless…
(6) Same story with GR.7… I don’t want all aspects vs no CMs.
About everything else, i took on account Weapons/CMs 1st, performance then. I couldn’t care less if it …turns good, if you can’t really evade missiles. Similarly , no PD/MTI makes the plane way worse than a plane that has it since you are not on equal footing, you’ll play defensive.
Towards lower tier i’m a little messy. Mostly because i’m on a rush now… feel free to change/criticize things , i may didn’t think it enough when i proposed the BR.
