    Does anyone know if the Dark Sword program still online? What are the chance that it will go into full production? Is it purely a recon UAV?

    To me it has the elements of a maneouvering, supersonic fighter, like ventral intake, strongly swept wings, canards and twin keels. Don't know if the horizontal extensions behind the keels are additional control surfaces like in MiG-1.44. The forward position of the intake suggests a big ventral weapons bay. A Chinese version of the loyal wingman? I know quite little about the project, but in any case it is a quite unique and very interesting design IMO
