"What in the name of the First Dragon WAS that?!"

--- Dragon, after a large, mysterious silver object, shaped like a bird and half his size, flew past him at supersonic speeds.

Y'know...who said that had to be a HUMAN flying machine?

"Commander, it appears we now have some...interesting new allies in the XCOM Project...."
That was mankind's perseverance in the face of impossible odds. :)

Wonder if the dragons would be dumb enough to take on supersonic jet fighters...
Considering their arrogance, I'd say they would. And then summarily get their asses kicked.

-> No amount of muscle power in organic wings will be able to keep up with afterburning turbofan jet engines, which can go up to Mach 2.

-> Dragon fires would be hard-pressed to affect the highly durable alloys and materials used to build jet fighter frames, if they even hit at all, making them useless beyond attracting heat-seeking missiles to them.

-> Advance BVR targeting systems available today would mean any fighter aircraft can hit them from miles away, far beyond any dragon's ability to fight.

-> Anti-air missiles that could shred aircraft mid-air would easily penetrate through scales and flesh, and if that doesn't work, the fragmentation or continuous-rod warheads could be replaced with nuclear munitions.

As far as it is concerned, a fantasy western dragon would be severely out-matched in terms of speed, durability and firepower by modern military aerial vehicles. No matter what some people may insist, when one consider the facts, they won't stand a chance, short of applying game-breaking and inconsistently-defined magical powers.
