Yes. An ancestor of Macross?

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Conbination of bits from F-15E and F-18F to produce another elegant design (IMHO)

Sweet!  :-*

Has a bit of a MiG-29 vibe to it. Like one of these "artist's impressions" of Soviet prototypes you saw in books when all they had was a top view from a satellite.
Cheers,

So I started an F-18L project and got wondering about the actual designation was it F-18L or FA-18L?   And would that lead to F-18LA, LB, etc?  Or maybe change completely as in F-18LA to F-19A,  LB to F-19B etc to avoid confusion between F-18A and F-18LA, etc.

Unusually,  a Finnish Hornet had some extra graphics at the NATO Days in Ostrava & Czech Air Force Days, last weekend. The Finnish Air Force posted some photos:

Nope.  There is also no way a pair of F119s would fit in the space usually taken by a pair of F414s.

Before Eurofighter project, the Spanish government was not happy with the "captive client" policy practiced by Marcel Dassault; they was also not happy with the prior authorization by the US government to be able to use weapons of US origin. So... what if they brazenly decided to reverse engineer the Mirage F1, F-18 and the J79 engine to produce an indigenous fighter?

Here you see the Casa-AFX.  :smiley:
