Thank's for the pics Triton!

The AEW aircraft, are they simply out of the hat depiction of AEW platform for sexiness, or do you think these might possibly be an actual project in development, do you think?

Thank you Jemiba for the link, by the model on the deck of the model posted by Triton doesn't look like the Yak-44E 😉

Looks very much like a Yak-44E to me, just with jet engines instead to props (or more likely just with the prop removed).

Pioneer has a point...
Tail design is completely different, as is the main wing planform, and cockpit.
Different radar support structure..
Main landing gear relocated from engine to fuselage.. due to jet engines..etc.
Either a new design, or it's a "generic" carrier AWACS model IMHO.

As per my observation kaiserbill (although I didn't pick up on the relocation of landing gear - thank's)
Hence why I'm enquring, - just a simply speculative model to give the impression of a fully functional carrier air wing, I don't know?
