Over the years technology has made advances but the aircraft that has not evolved with the technological advances can not be judged on an equal basis. One of the most common comparisons out there is with the MIG-29. The first table below compares the Arrow Mark I & II to similar aircraft from the same design/flight era and the second table compares the Arrow Mark I & II with today's aircraft. There are some discrepancies on weights and speeds depending on which source is used as a reference. Comparison of Arrow MK 1 and II with other aircraft of the same era. The following table compares aircraft built around the same time frame as the Arrow, including aircraft originally rejected by Canada, (the F101B), which prompted the Arrow program The F-101 Voodoo was originally rejected as a replacement for the CF100 Canucks, and after the Arrow was scrapped, the Voodoo entered Canadian service as the CF-101 remaining in service until nnnn. The F-102A Dagger was a delta wing fighter also under design and development by the USAF at the same time as Canada's Arrow and was in service with the US until nnnn. Less than six months after the Arrow was scrapped, an order was placed to have 214 F-104G Starfighters manufactured which entered Canadian service as the CF-104G and remained in service until 1986. The CF-104A in the National Aviation Museum in Ottawa set a Canadian altitude record of 30,500 metres (100,110 ft). Note: The Arrow MK II are calculated figures for any flight data as the Arrow was scrapped prior to the test flights with the Iroquois engine.

Over the years technology has made advances but the aircraft that has not evolved with the technological advances can not be judged on an equal basis. One of the most common comparisons out there is with the MIG-29. Taking this fact into account here are some comparisons of the Arrow to modern aircraft that were able to take advantage of technological advances. The CF-188 (F-18) Hornet is Canada's front line fighter aircraft The F-14 Tomcat and the F-15 Eagle are two of the US's most recognizable fighter aircraft. The MIG-29 was one of the Soviet block's top line fighters Note: The Arrow MK II are calculated figures for any flight data as the Arrow was scrapped prior to the test flights with the Iroquois engine.
