    I have written a blog post about the rationale behind the Western UCAV projects, and an analysis of their design:

    There's a lot of content on the French/English FCAS UCAV project since the French have released a few CGI pictures of preliminary designs.

    Please Piaggio do away with the cavernous fuselage too. For an unmanned, this is a bit ridiculous. Today Transistors don't need to stretch their little legs

    Cavernous (but low drag) fuselage full of fuel, sensors, etc. And as Piaggio says, "capability for aerodynamically effective payload arrangements".

    Yes, the fuselage (out if it seer beauty) puts into practice NASA's Natural laminar flows principles to the letter... But shaped around the need of a roomy business jet

    Which means that there's plenty of room for extra fuel (& that's been used: it has well over twice the range of the manned aircraft), sensors, & potentially weapons, without adding drag & without having to spend money designing & testing a new fuselage.

    I wonder how an aerospace magazine can publish such report containing NOT a single consistency. You'll appreciate also the placarding of Experts as an attempt to raise the level.

    This UAV (if real and anything close to something intended to fly) is a mockup that depict an intensive re-use of design choices fielded with the J-20 (logic). From the aft strapped delta wing with large forward positioned canards, the profile of the DSI (but below the aircraft), massive V-tails, everything seems to have been re-used. Hence it would have sounded more professional to appreciate this thing as having similar perfs and mission profiles.

    Not a 6th Gen aircraft.

    I can only assume the used a Sputnik article in an attempt to have a go at the F35 (which this publication do regularly).

    As you say, there is no flying aircraft, no way of judging the programme and the only motive behind calling it 6th Gen is to imply the 5th Gen are now obsolete.
