Tried to find that on line, but couldn't get any results. I think Arma Hobby and Arma Models are two different companies though.

I read similar comments on the un-stealthy design of the engine. Maybe it is proof-of-concept for some technologies and that the stealthy engine design will come in another model.

There's a lot of discussion about that aircraft over on SPF, but I find it a bit odd that it has all this stealth features built into it but then has this honking great big hot engine sticking out the back.
Perhaps designed for frontal and side stealth aspects only and not concerned with the rear aspect.  JASSM is stealthy in frontal and side aspects whereas it's predecessor in development, TSSAM, was all aspects stealthy.

I was thinking the same.  Perhaps the argument is that they only needed the LO effects as its coming towards the target as after the fact you already know they're around...

Pity they are Russian based as I don't wish to be putting money into their economy while the war with Ukraine continues.
