    This one was real of sorts. NASA took a F-5 Tigershark airframe an built a couple test planes nearly identical to this rendering.

    I know someone who was involved with designing the wing for the Grumman X-29, which looked very much like this sans the weaponry. They were, as +Curtis Edenfield says, roughly based on F5 airframes.

    +Curtis Edenfield Yeah the X-29 if I remember correctly. There is also a Russian Sukhoi like this as well. In fact it even has the canards.

    I believe it is the Shinden II If I am correct. It was a exclusive for online play for Ace Combat Assault Horizon if I am correct

    +Raiden Phoenix he said it looked similar to the X-29. He made a comparison not jumped the gun.

    Concepts are exactly that concepts. The X-29 project started in the late 70s. The Japanese were still using the F-5. NASA continued the project through the mid 80s using Mitsubishi as a contractor for some of the flight systems. Now for the biggest part, Konami doesn't just make games.
    Put these together an you have a concept fighter, that also shows up in a game. Hmmmmm

    +Curtis Edenfield oh how I wish the skies were filled with X-29s, X-31s, YF-23s and F16XLs.

    +Reo Cruz it would be cool. But these are engineering dreams. Put on paper to learn from. In the not to distant future, they will all be UAV's.

  15. seems real.
