Dornier and Northrop are continuing to work on the ND-102 project as a fall-back position, because, as the vice-president and chief designer of Northrop said: "We think there is enough chance [that the EFA program will fail] that we want to continue to be prepared for the opportunity if it comes." Aviation Week and Space Technology, the leading American magazine, says: "U.S. government officials contemplating the difficulties are convinced the entire program will never get off the ground. The skeptics at this point have a reasonable bet."
Northrop promptly scaled up the ND-102, a tail-less straight-wing project designed jointly with Dornier, to the 9.75 tonnes empty weight of the Eurofighter, and made fresh presentations in Bonn
