ThinZAG and Hellads will fit in a much smaller space but take a LOT of power, maybe a megawatt to spin that 150kw module gang. Takes its own APU usually.

Yeah, that's the other problem. If you put something like this on a fighter, you basically now have an aircraft that's going to fly straight and level, and at a set speed. You won't be "yanking and banking" like they do now. I'd love to see them do it, but I don't see it happening by next year.
You know they used to call the F-117 the "Wobblin Goblin" because it was so unstable.
