Do you think it's because we've reached an apex in terms of aerodynamics and we can't deviate too much from standard designs until we figure out anti-grav/magnetic levitation ?
How do these beasts achieve yaw without a seemingly visible rudder/tail ?

I'm one of those weird walking contradictions who loathes weapons and weapon systems, but is nevertheless fascinated by and appreciative of the ingenuity, technology, and even aesthetics of these machines. Just as I don't own or want to own a firearm, but can appreciate their design and engineering. (To the extent a layperson can.)
In that spirit, far from the criticisms of its not being "out there" enough, I actually think this thing looks beautiful and very interesting. But what do I know?

You may loathe weapons but from reading your post I'd recommend going to a range, renting a gun & shooting a box of ammo. Just to see.

Polecat? Didn't anyone tell you? The only one Polecat LM built crashed in 2006 and was never called the strike star.
