A question has occurred to me; Where were the Germans, especially Dornier, during the saga that was FSX?

I finally found a few more images of that FI-X wind-tunnel model !Matej said:Original FS-X was an early Eurofighter like with two vertical tails, but it was too ambitious and too expensive. Than japanese government decided to modify existing aircraft (F-15, F-16, F/A-18 and Tornado were considered). For example SX-3 looks like F-16CCV and FX-4 like two engined F-16. Deino posted F/A-18 derivate.
My first picture shows Mitsubishi F-1X proposal and second is probably the source of a lot of japanese YF-23 what ifs - scaled down test model for self recovery flight control system from JDA TRDI.
This will be my new web update but as usual - I dont have enoug time to finish it :-\
There is a pretty interesting photo on that linked page. The side view of the A6M with the following text: "堀越二郎氏自筆零戦"
