Empty weight:

F-35A: 12,000 ~ 12,500 kg

EF-2000: 10,995 ~ 11,150 kg

Rafale C: 9,400 ~ 9,850 kg

Internal Fuel:

F-35A: 8,391 kg

EF-2000: 4,996 kg

Rafale C: 4,700 kg

Thrust (AB/Max. Mil) at Sea-Level:

F-35A: 40,000~43,000 Ib / 28,900 Ib*1

EF-2000: 20,250~22,275 Ib / 13,490~15,525 Ib*2

Rafale C: 16,860~17,000 Ib / 11,245 Ib*2

Weight of Standard A-A configuration:

F-35A: 12,000~12,500 kg + 5,000 kg (internal fuel) + 1,500 kg (AAMs, pilot, gun-shells) = 18,500~19,000 kg

EF-2K: 10,995~11,150 kg + 5,000 kg (internal fuel) + 1,500 kg (AAMs, pilot, gun-shells) = 17,500~17,650 kg

Rafale: 9,400~9,850 kg + 4,700 kg (internal fuel) + 1,300 kg (AAMs, pilot, gun-shells) = 15,400~15,850 kg

T/W ratio at Sea-Level (A/B / Mil):

F-35A: 0.96~1.05 / 0.69~0.71

EF-2K: 1.04~1.15 / 0.69~0.80

Rafale: 0.97~1.00 / 0.64~0.66

Personally, I think the difference of T/W ratio among the three fighters with standard A-A configuration is not very significant.........

The T/W ratio may not be significant between the three. Yet, the F-35 will have much less drag and RCS. Clearly, advantage F-35!
