K I understand where your going with that but I need you to clarify how your asking this. First do you think that given CF funding and lack of any
black projects ever that there would be any funding like that available? Also when was the last time you saw use develop our own military
fighter/attack aircraft? If your asking me my opinion of if I think this realistically could happen given other factors I would say no.
But if you asked me if its was possible that if money and resources wasn't an issue and its was just technical know how then I would say yes. As its
stand now we are a more then solid contributor to space tech with many companies with the smart people to deal with those issues I'm sure some could
be harnessed into aero-design. As well as many manufacturing and electronics companies that are working even on the F-35 project. From my
understanding its well over a billion dollars in contract work that Canadians are doing for the project.
Could we do it ? I would hazard enough of a educated guess to say yes. Will we? or have we? I would say no as its hard enough to get freakin cargo
planes for the CF. Mind you if they have one as we speak then they are much better then the USAF and CIA in keeping a secret and we would have a major
secret on our hands.
For the fun of it I would wonder where you would base this plane out of? We don't have Area 51? so the Arctic maybe?
