Shape, position and span of the canards doesn't look effective.

The -143 look cool at least.


Here are some ideas for 6th gen, assuming a fusion of radar stealth with extensive electronic countermeasures:

- fully movable wingtips as on Su-50 instead of ailerons
- no vertical tail with "2D" TVC
- two engines, but not terribly large ones
- rotating front section with cockpit. Reasoning:
Rotation allows for having a large mission package bay + basic air combat missile load bays + engine air inlets on the upside hidden from most radars while flying at 60-70 k ft altitude
opposite is necessary for + 9-11 g manoeuvres (mostly evasive manoeuvres) and munition release
- keep areas for sensors: IR/UV missile approach sensors (~DAS), tail radar with rotating AESA antenna (Su-3x-like)
- retractable IRST
- retractable DIRCM laser (same side as bomb bay, air inlets)
- F-22-like nose section + really large delta wing

Hi lastdingo,sorry for the late replay,about the design,i used the original Northrop concept posted here in the forum to make my drawings,i know that the canard shape looks a bit odd,but it was based on the original Northrop design.

This is another drawing,made by using Rodrigo Avella Esave design and Lockheed Martin X-44 concept

PSA-186



this one was made using Northrop Lap concept,posted here in the forum(i think the original illustration was made by Kurt Beswick,and Scott Lowther),my modification was to give it variable geometry wings and inlets above the fuselage;

PSB-137

Thanks for posting your artworks ... however one question concerning this J-50.

It has a Chinese designation, is armed with the PL-15 and the new PL-X but has USAF-markings????

Or am I wrong?

Best,
Deino

No, it was no critics, it's impressive, amazing ... I like it very much!

All I wondered is why it still has the USAF-markings on it and not the PLAAF-symbol?

Best,
Deino

And you can use other surfaces ta yaw the aircraft, instead of conventional rudders.

Hi athpilot,if you remember the latest Boeing and Northrop concepts,for next generation fighters,they do not have a vertical tail,and use alternative means to control the aircraft,just look at the X-36,X-45,X-47 and the B-2 examples,none of them uses a conventional vertical tail,and yet the look very manoeuvrable.

Look up the definition of radar corner reflector 'cause that is what that is. :eek:

Remember that in the world of VLO, 90 degree angles are BAD NEWS and that thing is covered with them.

Hi SpudmanWP,sorry for the late reply,but i don't agree with you,i was digging up some images on my computer,and find out that there were a few projects with 90 degree angles,on there design and were made by some big aerospace companies,just some examples;

A-12



ICE concept



new Boeing MQ-25




UCLASS concept




...and there are probably alot more,so my design is not as impossible as you think it is,and that is what it is...

best regards

Convex 90 degree angles aren't too much of an issue (ie 90 degree angles on wingtips), but concave 90 degree angles are corner reflectors - any light (or radio waves below a certain wavelength) that bounce off 2 surfaces at 90 degrees will reflect back to its source:

Was that not part of the problem with the A-12?

The French FCAS UCAV design sports 90 wingtips too btw.

That Lockheed - Martin concept looks a lot like a descendant of Tacit Blue or a flipped-over version of TSSAM with a more prominent intake and a Tacit Blue tail.
