    oh.. hallo!

    It's a beautiful airframe when seen through Italian craftsmanship. However the mockup in Paris has a larger wing chord that kills a bit the effect (over designed wing surface = drag). But on overall this was a nice "surprise". Regarding Djcross remark , I am not sure that deleting verticals will be of any help regarding the level of stealth achievable by nations with no in-service experience of such. You have to start by something (as say the Russians). And TVC is among the targets

    There are several reeasons to expect that there will finally be a v shaped tail, major one being landing speed on carrier.

    Given they change the design completely every year or two.. I expect maybe 15 more new models before it flies.

    will probably end up looking similar to whatever the British will make.

    By then the market will probably been saturated with F35, j31 j20 and maybe the kfx

    There is a reason the similar size Raptor comes along with an empty weight of >19 tons.
    yes, but we are talking about a fighter to enter service half a century after the Raptor.. might be they have some ideas about ways to achieve what they want in a certain weight class, no?

    Toan, whats your source for the NGFs weight and engine thrust? Thx

    According the information we know now, the NGF:
    1. About 1/4 to 1/2 larger/heavier than Rafale.
    2. MTOW that will be similar to Mirage IV in 1960s.
    3. Requirement of significant better payload and combat range than Rafale and Eurofighter.
    4. Two engines of 30,000 pounds class each.

    My personal guess for NGF according to the information mentioned above:
    1. Empty weight: 12.5 to 15.0 ton (Rafale: 10.0 ton; EF-2000: 11.0 ton; F-22A: 19.6 ton).
    2. Internal fuel capacity: 6.5 to 8.0 ton (Rafale: 4.7 ton; EF-2000: 5.0 ton; F-22A: 8.0 ton).
    3. Maximal payload: 10.0 to 12.0 ton (Rafale: 9.5 ton; EF-2000: 7.5 ton).
    4. MTOW: 30.0 to 35.0 ton (Mirage IV: 33,450 kg; Rafale: 24,500 kg; EF-2000: 23,500 kg).
    5. Weight for air-combat: 18.0 to 21.0 ton (50% internal fuel + 2.0 ton payload).
    6. Thrust of engine: 30,000 Ib*2 (Rafale: 17,000 Ib*2; EF-2000: 20,250 Ib*2; F-22A: 35,000 to 39,000 Ib*2 ).
    7. T/W ratio for air-combat: 1.3 to 1.5+ (Under the same conditions, Rafale: 1.07; EF-2000: 1.19; F-22A: 1.24 to 1.38).

    Hmmm....not a bad start for a future European air superiority fighter, right?

    Design is not definitely fixed but there should be that very flat tail. Probably also variable air intakes so as to go faster than mach 2. Infos are hard to get.
    What i can tell you is that SDR (U/VHF at the moment, awaiting for a NATO standardization of waveforms) and communication server are ready.. Btw, it is 18x14m (the mockup)
    Thales want to get as many as mossibl allied waveorms, be it tempest or US.
    All in all, 3 demonstrators will be built : on for airframe with M88 derived engines, one for a new engine (2100K) and one for connectivity.
    In the end there should be 3 different waveforms possible, one national, one european (ESSOR) and one NATO (could be essor also)
