"The well-known French company Dassault used this year's Euronaval 2018 exhibition to display a model of the New Generation Fighter (NGF) that will eventually replace the current generation of Dassault's Rafales and Germany's Eurofighter Typhoons aircraft by around 2035-2040.

The Dassault s next-generation aircraft has no tail fin and a swept W-shaped wing design and incorporates highly advanced stealth technologies and integration with information systems. The new aircraft will have tricycle-type landing gear for runway take-off and landing…."

No vertical tails, very stealthy.

Would be nice to see some other angles of it.

They're sure working on a very long, lead time. Seems like they could and should need it sooner than more than 20 years from now.

Still using intakes with a diverter/fence/splitter plate, that increases your RCS from some angles.

And ~20 years is about what the Joint Strike Fighters had for lead time. I think the Advanced Tactical Fighter was close to that, as well.

I'd think, with all the high-tech computers, experience, 3-D printing, etc., etc., they'd be able to do it a lot sooner.

Probably could if they were better motivated to do so, but in peacetime, such developments seem to proceed at slower than a snail's pace.

A pity.

I look forward to seeing our 6th Gen. fighter operational.
