Those pics do not show the thrust vectoring. I thing this is what the Airforce should do to its F-15s if the F/A-22 does not work out.

Actually this plane is for show, the actuall one that all of you want, the one with thrust vectoring, I could not find, I will do more research into the military version of it.

Plus those two wings attached to is are called foward canard stabilizers.

Ahhh, here it is!!!



Thrust Vectoring!
"A unique dual-flow, cold-jet facility has been developed and operated by California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) at San Luis Obispo for NASA Dryden Flight Research Center. The facility supports flight research on thrust-vectoring nozzles and thrust-vector control systems. To date, the facility has completed tests on subscale nozzles of the F/A-18 High Alpha Research Vehicle (HARV), the X-31 airplane, and the F-15 Advanced Control Technology for Integrated Vehicles (ACTIVE)."

They did, apparently, I just posted a link to a website that states that.

Gday fella's
Nothing personal against you mate, but...
I nearly cracked myself laughing when i saw the "Latest technology" line...
Ive got these exact pics and the article in an Australian aircraft magazine from 1985 or 87. This stuff is nearly 20years old..
Its data was used in the F22 program.
The canards are F-18 hornet elevators.

I know they are. Also when I said they could build it I ment they should build it as a production model.

Wouldn't latest tech also refer to avionics, computing ect ect?

OMG, I am not the only one who plays Ace Combat 4 THANK HEAVEN!

I' ve beaten the game like 20 times, have inf cash, all paint jobs, all aircraft.

O and this technology is like 15 years old, I am aware of that, but the F-15 ACTIVE is not, it has been modified with this technology a few years back.

The fastest i have ever shot down the ENTIRE 18 yellow squadron was when i had killed about 16 of them and I used normal missiles and A2A missiles and it was I think 53 secs.

Plus the original 5 fighters I shot down using A2A missiles was 27 secs.

P.S. I used the X-02, the winter camo.
