    Guess what, it was hidden in plain sight. notice the following:

    Block 3

    Here is the dual seat, notice the extended cockpit and fatter front nose..

    - The cockpit is slanted like the dual seater, but can house one pilot.

    - The nose is clearly different, reminiscent of the f-16 as it gets narrower at the front which is not the case with the dual seat version

    Compare both and see the differences

    Looks like an improved B Model and that my friend is NOT a prototype paint. Look for something "Yellowish".

    The colour scheme is bit confusing. Unless the source is confirm & this is a deliberate leak; the Nose Cone could be the angle of camera. However, yellow primer is the thing to begin but seems like a B-Model serial production. Second seat possibility is there unless, there is something bigger to fit in which appears to be rear cockpit. Not sure, though.

    wonder how much is real and how much is PS

    looks aside its the inside what matters. in the shape of sensors, avionics the radar I believe if the engine is still the same then there will be trade off for reduced performance due to increased weight of claimed AESA and longer range PL15 missile etc
