It's had to have been talked about on ATS somewhere. Maybe a thread around the mid 2000s by some of the old guard ars members.
Model based off of its descriptions.
Looks built for speed and early stealth. Love the valkrie looking variable wing tips in the anhedral. Good for trapping air and maximizing lift in
high altitudes and high speeds.
Looks noisy as hell though.
Wonder if they still go with that shape for the current aircraft slotted for those missions or have moved on to newer planforms with newer tricks.
As for Bright Star it was rumored to be some lockheed private venture to get Darpa interested in certain technologies lockheed had developed and
figured could solve some, at the time, current issues with some of the birds in service performing certain types of missions.
