From what little I can see, it looks like an interesting design. Smaller hybrid perhaps of the F-22 forward fuselage, along with the tail end of a YF-23A. Would love to see what the wing looks like, moreso to see if Dassault put its "stamp" aka delta wing on it...

Mmmm, seems like LM build the prototype in the 80-90's.

The F-16 XL wing with the F-18 twin tail, and a F-22 inlet.

Yep, mixed and shaken but not stirred. :D

Very nice. I hope it properly leapfrogs existing designs.
In any case this is a great opportunity to advance high technology design and manufacture skills here in Europe.
