It's a good looking plane, but the question remains, does it perform? Has it been tested yet?

It's Burt Rutan's ARES "mudfighter" an actual experimental attack jet designed to do CAS for the AF with a 25mm cannon. It was designed to be a very cheap jet for third world countries.
You can see it in action in Iron Eagle III. Just make sure you do not pay attention to the plot.
