They've got some serious challenges to overcome. I don't think this actually have an RCS that small, I think they are using this as a development
platform. The engine nozzles are still round and appear to have no scattering geometry nor Low RCS coatings. That alone makes this a pet project.
Perhaps they're waiting to pop in a different powerplant all in one modular replacement, but the F-22 has a RCS of a pinball. This aircraft with
those nozzles is like two airborne 55 gallon drums. Plus, their is a canopy bow. It looks like they have tried to emulate the geometry of the F-22
without fully understanding how to drive RCS down to bird-sized levels.
