    Now they need to borrow China's refurbished Russian aircraft carrier and they will have the complete action set.

    It looks like they are displaying it in a Krispy Kreme doughnut shop.

    Even if it did fly, they have no one qualified to fly it into combat in any sort of effective manner.

    Bring it on. (yawn)

    It's supposed to be stealth. They really adapted the technology from our drone rather quickly, didn't they.

    I wonder if Revel knows Iran stole plans from one of their model kits?

    It looks like a life-sized version of a futuristic model plane that my brother put together in the 70s.

    It looks more like ether a mock up, or photo op.

    I'm sure any of our military fly boys here could pick this apart.

    First the cockpit.



    Few instruments, tiny. Even less wiring behind the front panel.



    The small nose cone. Fit any radar in there?



    I would love to see him with the canopy down. He would be hunched over.

    Note they don't show it taking off or landing. Only a brief flight. To me looks more like a working mock up of that drone of ours they captured. With a cockpit put in for looks. Likely radio controlled.
