Did Testors slap a red star and MIG designation on a not so Russian design, or is this just more imagination at work here? Its not a super far stretch
from the YF-23 planform which i would think was only a thought at the time at best.
Big, stealthy unmanned loitering platforms are a fun rabbit hole to go down. It's been a very active part of the black world, for sure. The
"RQ-180", or whatever it's actually called, is just the latest in a long line of similar aircraft and design studies.
From the little bit i know about the YF-23 it certainly seems Northrop had alot of things worked out with their design compared to the YF-22. Theres
quite a story there that I wasnt aware of before and its got me thinking a few things.
