that's just a paper airplane. not much is known about it. hopefully it can be a match for the chinese J13 an JXX. :biggrin:

Not a bad idea, assuming they really can pull it off at a decent price. If they do I'll bet there'd be a few more than 500 on order. It kinda looks more like the Black Widow II than the Raptor or JSF. Fat chance it comes into service by 2010.
By the way, have they come up with a nickname for the JSF yet?

No, no nickname for the JSF yet.

Now lockheed is having a lot of problems with the USN F-35C model.

Looks like they may have to do a costly wing redesign because despite their best efforts the landing speeds are still about 5 knots too high.

more like a cheap alternative for Raptor for japan.

The US Navy's not gonna like that at all.

If this plane will be developed it could be an export hit, because a lot of country's wish to have state-of-the-art fighter, but don't have the money for an effective number of F-22.

Maybe Taiwan will buy some of these.

This is basicly a one-engined, simplified YF-23 Black Widow. I doubt it will ever enter service.

Good grief, It's just a hoax drawing made by some kid from a gaming site. It's not a real project... :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
