Yes it was persistent ISR in the graphic.
Who knows it could have been the same marketing firm that produced the graphic and GE's commercial. They could have pulled a random futuristic looking platform off a Google image search.

If they do the NG commercial surely NG approve the shadow planform because it look like they work no ?

No. It's not enough to infringe on any kind copyright.

It is somewhat intriguing though, reminiscent of past commericials with invisible planforms emerging from the clouds. A way of showing us whats there without really showing it?

“Northrop is believed to be heavily vertically-integrated from subsystems perspective (e.g., radar, EW, etc.),” McAleese writes.


This is a great thing for so many reasons.

Because there's nothing going on until the protest is handled. They can't even work on building EMD-1 until it's resolved.

Do you think the flying prototypes will make it into a museum somewhere like the Yf-23?

The award contest is realy a problem in US defense acquisition program at each award there is contest and the lone winner are the bad guys because its a lost of time, in a LRS-B program Boeing and Lockheed can have a lot of work on the bomber in subcontactor like the center fuselage of the F-35 built by Northrop.

And there's not a shred of evidence they're doing any work on it. A $100B+ contract is nothing to sneeze at. I don't care what country you're in, it would be fought by whoever lost.

I m from France there is not this kind of contest here ( less program too), I don't say this is a good thing for us but, the contest is very a lost of time in a program like the new bomber, this bomber is very long awaited by USAF and now the more soon it go in the inevntory the better it is.

If Pratt win the engine, it can be an enhanced F-135 or may be a F-119 derivative ? What is your opinion ?
