Hey, I like that head on view! I hadn't thought of that before, a full box section. It would give some very useful benefits for structural strength
and volume (maybe with fuel in the tip fairings) if it is aerodynamically viable.
For the moment I think that we should model the D-0013 (FSW) config as-is. But when we have the wing right, and in light of any fuselage tweaks, we
can experiment with trying to create a lifting body, and also of movin g the intakes further forward to make greater internal volume:
A slightly more evolved illustration of the variable-incidence leading wing idea:
It would be powered by a non-afterburning and non-TVC EJ-200 giving about 13,000lb. the performance would be subsonic but it would have an internal
weapons bay option able to accomodate one Storm Shadow cruise missile. It would have a compariatively low radar cross section but not be fully
