And they say chivalry is dead.

Last line in the link u mention laser. I always wondered if the shaft that turns the lift fan “could” be repourposed to create electricity and the area where the lift fan sits would leave amble space for such things,I know it’s off topic and completely from my imagination, just thoughts.

Bdep Bdeep Bdeep That's all FOLK:

I know "Electric Jet" once referred to our beloved Viper, but I think it is more fitting for the F-35.

I think the YF-23 had "Black Widow" unofficially.

It takes a gorilla to ride a panther?

Silverback? But razorback sounds so much better, but then you're stuck with a pig...

Too bad velociraptor is such a mouthful: fast, reputedly wicked smart, hunts in a pack, and is ruthless.

Wolf would work, but who wants their jet to be named after a dog, and wolf is kind of bland. Doberman, Rottie... Rottie might work, but again, who wants their jet to be a dog?

Has anyone heard if Panther is in common usage yet? Is it widespread?

H*ll, I like Lightning, just leave off the stupid "II."
