When it was cancelled I argued for the headline "Avion de Combat Foutu". Editors are sooooo boring.
bravo ! I laughed like an idiot, you sir made my day.

to the others: imagine a (mostly unfortunate) foreigner moving to France with his three cars: a MR2, a Koleos, and an E-tron. In a nutshell: j'ai une MR2 et un E-tron Koleos lip...

Well done that man! Captured late in the evening after the site has been cleared. A sneak attack with a drone, perhaps? The work of but a moment from the Musee de l'Air car park.

Was there a reason for the strategically placed trees at the rear of the mock-up. And in that view, it does look quite a handsome aircraft.

On rappellera ici ce que les plus lettrés soulignèrent en 2006, au moment où Renault officialisait le choix du patronyme de son SUV : en grec moderne, koleos se traduit par vagin. Il s’agit là d’une évolution du grec ancien, où le terme signifie l’étui, le sac, le fourreau. Ce qui, par extension et selon le dictionnaire Littré, a fini par désigner la bourse et le testicule. Voilà qui donne le mot coleus en latin, ou couille en français. Gageons qu’aucun propriétaire du modèle ne se vantera d’en savoir autant.
It is actually worse than I thought. Koleos is the word for BOTH vagina (in Greek) and "couille" (Latin) from coleus which means sheath / scabbard - for obvious reasons.

As, apart the drawing of the V-tail Dassault bi-engine stealth project from the beginning of the 90's, the NGF Le Bourget mock-up looks like all other flying or not projects of the aviation history, I Propose that you open a topic to choose the name of this "plane" and that you send the winner name to Dassault and Airbus. I am sure that it will be a hype by them
Thanks :)
