There won't be any photos. And Northrop has the better airplane, I'm happy to see that team succeed. Capabilities wise and cost wise its a home run.

Whose the angry old geezer on the right side? Looks like hes got something pressing and like hes in a hurry for a air force ball.

The guy cant even try a smile for his bright shiny new toy?

Why no photos aholic? They want us taxpayersa to just "trust them"...like obamacare, youll see it when we pass it kind of thing?

The product is still classified, they can't. The first photos will be from spotters out in Nevada. Good time to take a road trip!

What a bunch of idiot reporters and no ask when we would see a glimpse of NG design! Also no one asked if LM will release it's design consideration as well!

Nope. Also, "technically" nothing as flown yet, officially. What we say flying a few months back were company funded demonstrators, not USAF property, and it's fairly certain the design will change a bit during the EMD phase. So any photos now wouldn't even resemble the final product. Just think have blue, hopeless diamond etc etc. Not that this is that.

Why are there two threads on this right now?

Actually, speaking as someone who has to navigate government contracts carefully, anything developed with government money is technically government property and can be given to another contractor. Ask Boeing about that with their UAV software.

My hunch is that the Lockmart/Boeing design was basically along the lines of a manned Taranis on steroids in terms of general shape/planform and performance, while the Northrop design was more of a big, manned X-47B.

It'll be interesting to see how that design changes as it goes through EMD.

It might have been a polecat. Doubtful, but possible.

Or something else altogether.
