Hi everybody,

On a French website, a forumer showed us today a video from a Dassault advertising DVD dating from June 2001.

View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etDiJ2_l3ak


At the end of the video (7'05"), there is an unknown Dassault stealth fighter study/concept, with a "V" tail and "forward swept" air intakes.

Does anyone in the audience know about this concept ?

(I send PM to MIRAGE 4000, alanqua and JC Carbonel to draw their attention to this topic ;) )

Here it's;

hi Hesham.

I don't think. The unknow study is on a Dassault's DVD advertising from 2001 ("Dépot légal : Dassault-Aviation juin 2001", at the end of the video). This drawing shows us a Dassault NGF/FCAS version of 2019.

Was about to comment similar thoughts. The NGF is far too recent for it to be the one in the DVD. It is possible however, that is is a French equivalent to the F-35 (or JSF, to be more accurate), though this is pure speculation.

I would have said the same.... an antecedent to the current SCAF design ? Circa the turn of the century PopMech had postulated that beyond the Petit-Duc drone was a Grand-duc manned aircraft. This rather poor picture looks rather reminiscent of the Duc series but with the intakes on the side instead that on the top ?
