Lockheed Martin F-45 Starbolt by Bispro Lockheed Martin F-45 Starbolt by Bispro
What if Lockheed Martin answered a tender to procure a lightweight fighter by the year 2025? By reusing some of the F-35 experience and engineering, they might come up with this VLF (Very Light Fighter) contender, the Lockheed Martin YF-45A Starbolt... that is, unless some clever Congressmen decide to give it the axe...

And by the way... the sole air intake is ventral...

Ventral intake? Cool but I know something even cooler, much stealthier. Check this "Mig-41" [link] , [link] and [link] It's like a combo between a Mig-21 and a F-35

Which is one of the bad ass looking jets too, especially the twin seater

Yeah, but the Rafale is the best looking of them all, isn't it?

Well, if you think about it, ultra-light fighter might come in handy, for protecting carriers and fighting in local conflicts. (It is been said, that for a number of milltary operations in 2000s Il-2 would be no less useful than MiG-29 and F-16).

By the way, can you make something Flanker or PAK-FA based?
