No idea what amazing artist came up with this concept but this has to be one of best looking concepts I have yet seen. « Untitled Untitled »
Nice maybe some missiles machine guns then it would be a great jet
That engine is very exposed…a single leaf enters there and is a flying hunk of metal
I thought this plane was from the video game series Ace Combat by Bandai.
+Sebastian Carrero why do you think the engine is exposed? The intake is more like hidden behind and above the cockpit, as far as I can see in this mockup.
Furthermore, this air intake location may lead to a major problem while maneuovering the aircraft in high Angles of Attack, i.e. landing, flying displays, dogfighting etc. – the front fuselage's slipstream will create a vacuum around the engine's air intake(s), which is likely to cause a fatal flame-out in the engine.
This is one of the reasons why most military jets have the intakes located below the fuselage, or at least beside of it.
Nevertheless, jet engine are not that sensitive to FOD nowadays, I have seen the Typhoon's EJ200 engines eating nearly everything without breaking apart or even cancelling operation, for example ripped of in-flight refueling probes ^^
Assuming the concept is how the plane should be,you notice that the end of the cockpit is in the center not above?
As for the leaf part I didn't necessarily mean a leaf but anything that small at Mach velocities would probably be catastrophic
I must admit if looks is all that's needed to be the best, this baby would walk away smiling….
All I know is new planes are not pretty
that's awesome.. i'd love to see that developed
You should try infinite flight it has really really good graphics and very informational.
that's an awsome idea +Terminator9288 Cyborg
I love it!!!!###
Its wings are new in terms of the design
Movie: Stealth (2005)
Images that are similar to this planes design (also made by lockheed martin):
Movie Reference: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0382992/
Not sure if it was one of the other concepts for the movie or not but they are still really close.
That's what up bro
I love this
