I've recently come across references to BAe project named HALO as a possible competitor for the FOAS (Future Offensive Air System) for the British MoD. The FOAS requirement is aimed at replacing the Tornado when it finishes. However, I have no idea what this HALO projet might be if it even exists/ed. Any info on it would be much appreciated as the only website I could find was way out of date.

Thanks

It seems to me that the HALO seems to have strong influences from the F-22 and the B-2. British involvemnet in stealth is nothing new. In fact they participated in test flying the f-117 and were the only country offered the f-117. The jsf is being built with heavy involvement from the RAF and the Royal Navy. In fact the JSF will be the Royal Navy's first conventional catapult takeoff plane since the retirement of it's f-4 fleet.

Ronii I thought I'd correct you about the JSF version that
we (the British) are procurring. The MoD decided to buy
the STOVL version because our new carriers are going to
be sky jump with scope for future installation of a cat. I
must admit I don't quite understand this as it requires
more complicated aircraft and limits the amount of
armament they are capable of carrying (sorry bout that
rant). Anyway this may have conitations for HALO
but I still don't know much more about it even though the
links were cool.

acually the new uav's like the x-45 will not use a pilot, but pilots need not worry because for the near and medium future a pilot will be required for dogfighting iin the cockpit

but there aren't pictures of this HALO out
