Right but the ACM yes said twin-engine quite clearly.
On a related note, the YF-23 design provides a lot of (structural) room for upgrades precisely because it's a little oversized. I kind of like that the PAC is looking at it. At the very least provides a very good/refined baseline to jump off from.
So it's based off the YF-23 but has modifications and refinements. For example it will have DSI. Also it is sized specifically with two AL-31/WS-10 in mind. Also also, they're using the F16 as the aerodynamic performance benchmark. Also also also, not even wind tunnel tested yet, so all just digital guesswork at this point.

B is just the Su-57 and D looks like some of the aircraft that we used to design in our aero vehicles design course.I can see "B" being a future evolution of the JF-17 (or JF-18 then) becoming the Stealth platform. And "D" an evolution of J-10C air frame. Both are highly do-able.
B is looking very much like Russian PAK-FA...I can see "B" being a future evolution of the JF-17 (or JF-18 then) becoming the Stealth platform. And "D" an evolution of J-10C air frame. Both are highly do-able.
@JamD they are talking about some UCAV designs also.what about that?
I remember hearing about a Saab FS2020-style design. That looks like design D. It seems like that was the only one that may have modelled a twin RD-93-type scenario.
Actually all the UFO videos released by the pentagon show LCA Tejas violating US airspace for shits and gigglesActually JF-17 doesn’t even have an engine, anytime you see it flying, it’s just CGI, what Pakistan should have done is order LCA Tejas from India, I’ve heard it’s a 6th generation fighter that is going to replace the F35 in US service soon.
"A" is the closest one to what we saw on the tail of PAF C-130 during air tattoo show but with canards. However, a documentary somehow suggested without canards YF-23.
