If I have a say, I would suggest thousands of small jets (half the above size jet or even smaller) with speed, great radar and only equip with just air to air missiles only (say just 8 each). Whatever war you may enter in the future are not likely to be distance away, but your own backyard. And enemy may not be coming in high numbers of planes, but few hundreds. So, you would need thousands of these mosquito jets to intercept and defend enemy forces from entering your heart land space. These are for first line of defense. Now-a-days, jets are too big, too heavy, large area to maneuver, too expensive, pilots are too big, too heavy, slow (pilots need not be muscle), and losing one plane mean millions burned. Small jet, cost much less, small pilots are less weight, small canopy (mean less drag), and small people like us do things quicker with our hand (to wrestling would need big man, but hand and brain, small men are quicker).
