From Figure 1.4, we learn that the 'flying dorito' (mostly completely triangular) shape was considered optimal for the air to ground task. The 'high-agility/moderate-observables' air-to-air proposal looks quite a bit like a Eurofighter, which is exactly what the Eurofighter is.
There must be some fundamental engineering principles governing the shape. Hence my proposal that the flying dorito is designed to take on the missions of the retired F-111, F-117, A-6 (if land-based), and current F-15SE.

Secondly (And I know it's a deflecting statement), but if it's NOT military and the Air Force doesn't know.... well that worries me more than any other scenario!

It's the culture of secrecy that's ingrained into them. They think it's better to cover than say no comment.
