    Question FMA SAIA 90

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FMA_SAIA_90

    I wonder if FA-18 was copy of this argentinian air superior fighter design ?

    Thats pretty unlikely considering Hornets first flight was in 1978, wiki says that thing was being designed in mid 80's.

    There´s a connection between the two designs, the "FMA" SAIA 90 is nothing else, nothing more than one of the Dornier TKF-90 designs, those designs were made together with Northrop (the most famous one being the ND-102), the same chaps who had designed the P-530, then the YF-17 wich was the base for the Hornet.
    The best model that i´ve ever seen for the "SAIA 90" is a wind tunnel test scale in the Deutsches Museum in Munich, but it actually is part of the Eurofighter development program.
