Notice the nose is hard to see even in the painting. Not sure how easy it will be to keep the nose away from public eyes on the actual 757.Dubbed Excalibur, the aircraft has been remodeled with a pointed nose to mimic the likely Tempest design by Leonardo’s partner, UK firm 2Excel.www.defensenews.com
It will be interesting to see what results come out of the flight testing of the nose from the Tempest will be when Leonardo flys the 757 test plane, whether or not the front nose section of the Tempest needs a redesign.
