Sounds more like hype than hyper.

Ok, thks. wasn't familiar with the use of this word...
"put the program in hyperdrive and take global Britain back into the stratosphere"...
Common Mr. Wallace, be more ambitious , pass the stratosphere and go orbital. Not that difficult with an Hyperdrive.

I think that as a design it is back to the CAD computers, a total redesign is needed before the RAF will accept this fighter.
Why do you think that? Its obviously an early design iteration and as stated, just a look at what the future could look like.
As a design right now it would not survive for very long in the current close in dogfighting against the likes of the Su-57 with the advanced thrust vectored R-74M.
Well, the benefit of DEWs (in theory at least)... and the benefit of BVR...
