The comment:

Well I think that this is very interesting in that it looks as if they have taken the FOAS testing and three other test projects and glued them together.

It’s interesting that the MOD have decided to go with a UK built system, (jobs I guess) also the use of high powered energy weapons along with the more normal weapons bays.

If this project turns into a 8ton hawk sized aircraft with remote control from a Typhoon or Senitial platform then the RAF would have a very nice and cheap strike package.

Just wonder if they would consider a much larger deep strike version? As the replace for the Tornado or assuming that the Body is based on the Replica joint / common airframe for Manned (control) versions / Slave / drone unmanned versions?

I personally cannot wait to see that results
