Hey all of them are AWSOME!!!! Do you ever think to use your renders in the PEPAKURA program???? this is for making it as a paper model. C'mon men, please do it. I want to see all of them in my collection of PAPER WAR BIRDS. my email is:

Ммм...Interesting arrangement of the fuselage!

one of my favorite designs, really nice work, it's very applicable and stealthy indeed, i believe if it's ever build it will have less radar signature than F-22 due to it's sharp delta shape and you toke care of the details avoiding all 90 degree angles with the direction of movement. nice work.

allow me to add one more suggestion to this design, is to add two extra medium missle bays 2.5~3 meters long at the intakes to maximize the armament capacity, also all bays can be used for extra optional fuel tanks.


you already have the capacity of 4 long range BVR missiles which can be replaced by 8 close range compat missiles or 2 major strike bombs, the maximum length of a BVR missile is about 4.8 meters which means that those bays you have is about 5 meters each making the total length of this aircraft is about 20 meters max, quiet a big girl, like the big russian sukhoies (they 22 meters max).

i have respect to all delta wing / tailless designers, i'm new to the graphics world, but i have alot of pencil designs that i will digitize soon.

really beautiful, nice work Clap

Thank you for the comment and suggestions! really appreciate it. :) here is a section, as you can see there are 8 BVRAAMs in 2 layers in the first bay and 4 IR SRAAMS in the second bay and it's big enough for something larger too, like another BVRAAMs.
Although there is space for 2 extra bays beneath the engines, i think that for the moment it has enough missiles.
at the moment i don't think to add them because this means a partial rework of the mesh and i dont have enought time for that, trying to do other planes right now.

Fairly believable looking, which is better than I'll say about most people's "stealth" fantasy planes.

Two things to nitpick:
1) It should probably be a little fatter in the middle to leave enough room for fuel storage. With the large engines, weapon bays and air intake ducts, there isn't a lot of internal volume left for the fuel (no, not the wings, those are too thin), which powerful supercruise engines need a lot of.
2) The number 21 is already taken. In the 1980s, the US leased several IAI Kfir fighters from Israel and designated them the F-21 Lion (they were used in the Red Flag and Top Gun programs as aggressor aircraft). This would have to be at least F/A-24 or F/A-25* ;)

*Further sub-nitpick: I don't see a bay door covering a tail hook, so it doesn't look like this is a Navy aircraft. The Air Force doesn't really care for the "F/A" designation, they want to call their aircraft "F" for "fighter" because it sounds more macho that way.

thank you for your reply! i really like to read such a detailed feedback. :) so i'll try to answer:
1) here is a section, i don't know if this angle shows better the internal space available, although i agree that it could have been fatter for more space, i didn't thought it was necessary, being based on YF-23 design, which had a bigger range than F-22 (on internal fuel) i think it's enough for 5gen fighter.
2) this is bagera3005's design, so i kept the designation he choose, and by his description i don't think he follows the standart US designation system and also it is not described by him as a naval fighter which leads to the lack of tail hook.

If it was my personal design, i would've used A-17, since back in the 2000s there was a rumored black project A-17 based on the canceled YF-23 (….

Aha, there's more space than I thought above the weapon bays.

I want to see it in action

DAMN!!! This is awesome. It's a little too delta and triangle for my taste, but it still looks pretty cool. I like your cell shading style; I might need to get you and another guy to design my plane. Good job; keep 'em coming.

loving it, another awesome model, i love your grayscale use, even though its using different colour ranges it looks awesome without seeming like a concept only piece.
