Kind of hard to prove since the final shape never flew and the one that did was having power to weight problems.it still outperforms F-35 in terms on turn rate and speed

You started this thread for me? Thanks! Please post the extended one with rear elevator at 47ft long. That is the prototype that Boeing didn't get to finish. At least having the photo here will remind everyone so that they will not forget this futuristic aircraft like YF-23. X-32B will not be revive as it is using the old jumpjet Harrier style nozzle that is inferior than the F-35's V/STOL taken from the Convair 200 (and others).

20 mm M61A2 cannon, or 27 mm Mauser BK-27 cannon
Internal: 6 AMRAAM air-air missiles or 2 AMRAAM air-air missiles and 2 x 2,000 lb (900 kg) class guided bombs
External: Approx. 15,000 lb (6,800 kg) of full range of external stores including guided weapons, anti-radiation missile, air-to-surface weapons, auxiliary fuel tanks.
if i was a pilot i know what i would want,plenty of weapons and easy and comfortable to fly.Boeing does have better export value than LM.
