Looks indeed like tailless with vertical TV. Hmmm...

From what's visible so far, chances are it'll look exactly like the Dassault CG images released to date.

It looks a bit like the early RN experiments, where they used RAM netting....

Well if we scale it up from 1/10th, it probably use some kind of Junker corrugated skin too. Probably the German side.

Another 80s throwback - put it on a ship.

Didn't do Rafale any har...er...oh.

Neuron wingspan 12.5m/41ft; this NGF-N seems a fair bit bigger. So you need a big ship, especially if wings don't fold.

Wow I know it's just a model and configuration certainly will change , but so far I love the look . Specially that view .
Seems to be about a Rafale size, which doesn't have folding wings, so no need of a bigger ship than CdG.
Yes, no DSI, these are for Chinese fanboys. And no fins, so modern ;p !! Well at least it doesn't have a pelican head :D
Sorry couldn't help... love you Brits.

The whole model is so devoid of details that one wonders how accurate even the basic things like dimensions of wings/engines/intakes/cockpit are, compared to the rest of the plane. Basically, it seems very, very pointless to even discuss such a model in detail. Aside from discussions of general planform choice, no-tails choice, number of engines choice etc.

What is the gull-winged mockup on the left?

And a suggestion to why such large wing: collapsible vertical tails.

Also notice that it seems to have asymmetrical wing design what suggest two different versions: the pointy for AdlA (left wing) and the larger one for the Marine (with collapsible verticals?)

At last it seems that this thing is in the expo to really display something :D

well either the pictures have been doctored, either we have an optical anomaly...

Or it could be a morphing wing. Which would be very interesting indeed.

‘Gull winged mockup’ is the UCAS formally known as UK-FR.
Why such a large wing? Probably due to the carrier approach speed requirement.
Both wings are the same but the tip being aligned with the inboard highly swept section, the wing thickness and possibly the usual couple of degrees of wing twist can make them look different.
