6 years ago, I have designed this concept of a 5th generation european fighter. Its name is Squale.
The main specs are:
Length: 18 meters
Wing span: 13 meters
Speed: Mach 2+
stealth capability, vector thrust and air superiority
Weaponry: 6 Meteor missiles, 2 Mica missiles, 1 Nexter 30M 791 30 mm gun

Now it's time to share it with you.

Looks like the offspring of an F-22 and an F-23. Good looking aeroplane.

Thanks for your words guys.
Yes F-22 and YF-23 (and many other projects and concepts) have inspired me for this baby.

Yeah, what a nice successor could have been for the Panavia Tornado and the Dassault Mirage 2000N/2000D.
I know, that the Eurofighter Typhoon , the Dassault Rafale and the LM F-35 have taken that role in the real world.

Squale mean shark in French, but also sounds like squall, which translates as... Rafale. The irony !

Came to same conclusion :)
Just seen some Tempest pictures and its design is close similar to my concept. Probably same inspiration comming from F22/YF23/X32/X35.

Missed that one. Very nice !
The wing especially looks surprisingly a lot like the Tempest .
