Japan Developing Its Own Stealth Fighter Jet

This is the Shinshin ATD-X, the prototype of what could be Japan's very own stealth fighter if they don't get to buy Lockheed Martin F-22s. It's very sleek, but I'm sad it doesn't transform like a Varitech.

The Japanese military seems to be very happy about it, although it's not clear it will ever pass the prototype test phase. For now, only a full scale mockup for radar profiling — it appears as a group of insects or a bird, they say — and a RC model have been built. [Flight Global]
