Actually, going back to your Dart thought:




It’s ugly as sin that’s all I know.

It's Dark Sword. Appears to be real. And it also appears to be the first fighter UCAV.

And it ain't American.

I think we got some things wrong, but it was interesting.

I saw the thread and discussion on it, I wasn’t saying anything about it’s origin or whether it’s a real project I just said it’s ugly in my opinion.

ETA sorry I see where you were coming from my bad I was saying that’s all I know in a purely metaphorical sense.

I'll skip the Bulldog comment because its too easy and tempting.

Forgot about the Shadow Star:

Which explains why they stopped the Lijian.

They learned what they needed and came up with a better design.

Turn off the sound. It's mildly annoying.

Doesn’t look like it would have very good ITST signature with the outlet being so close to the tail of the aircraft they tried but I don’t think being mounted only a foot or two from the tail will do much to mask the IR signature. The music isn’t that bad have me an early 90’s action movie flashback.

The actual engine is a decent bit forward from the nozzle. There are several tricks that you can't see to reduce the signature to various degrees.

it's also a model they decided not to go forward with. This was just a taxi test. The Shadow Star appears to be more along the lines of what may go into production.

Let the paranoia begin.

That actually makes it worse.

The mind control rays, that is.

Now hold still...this won't hurt a bit. really.

Looks decent. Unlike China, Russia make jet engines. High powered ones. Seems like they'll use RD-33MK in this.

But it’s so flattering on me! 250lbs of corn fed American in a skin tight Mylar outfit is a sight to behold

About as flattering as, say a speedo on a 65 year old overweight, hairy guy on the beach.
