Squale mean shark in French, but also sounds like squall, which translates as... Rafale. The irony !

A funny coincidence  :)

Looks a bit like Tempest ....... but much prettier!  ;D

Came to same conclusion  :)

Just seen some Tempest pictures and its design is close similar to my concept. Probably same inspiration comming from F22/YF23/X32/X35.

Missed that one. Very nice !
The wing especially looks surprisingly a lot like the Tempest .

Nice design, seems like it'd actually be quite stealthy.
