Undertaker guy is either intellectually handicapped or a troll. Almost all his posts reflect a HYPER-pro Russian agenda and shits on pretty much everyone else. So many posts have complete inaccuracies, falsehoods, and emotional nonsense. Do not take his stuff seriously.

According to RR engine we could say this plane might be stealth eurofighter with weight.

The configuration of RAF Tempest is based upon following five points:
  • Connected and Co-operative: Reconfigurable Communication Systems and Scalable Autonomy
  • Affordable: Advanced Power & Propulsion System, Automated Support Options and Advanced Digital Processes and Tools
  • Capable: Next-generation Flight Control System, Advanced Radio Frequency Sensors, Advanced Active and Passive Electro-optical Sensors, Balanced Survivability Design, Integrated Sensor and Next-generation Counter-measures, and Distributed Multi-spectral Sensors
  • Upgradable: Physical Architecture — "Designed for Growth"
  • Flexible: Virtual Cockpit Design and Flexible Payload Configuration

"Tempest" will be either be flown traditionally by pilots or as a drone, with an ability to survive the most challenging combat environments. Eventually, the aircraft will be deployed in conjunction with the RAF F-35s and replace the Typhoon fighter jets in near future. The year 2035 has been set as a target to achieve a full operational capability.


Gavin Williamson said, "We have been a world leader in the combat air sector for a century, with an enviable array of skills and technology, and this strategy makes clear that we are determined to make sure it stays that way."

Further, he added that U.K is not against forming a "Tempest" partnership with other nations. However, Germany and France are already working on a new jet, with the program led by France’s Airbus, part of the Eurofighter consortium and Dassault Aviation SA, the maker of the Rafale - in which U.K, remain excluded.

However, in 2012, France and the U.K. signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for an unmanned Future Combat Air System. With reference to that MoU, The Future Combat Air System Demonstration Programme Preparation Phase (FCAS DPPP) contract was awarded to BAE Systems and Dassault Aviation to mature and demonstrate critical technology and operational aspects of a future combat air system. In 2014, the terms of the contract were announced under which parts from the BAE Systems Taranis was to be combined with the Dassault nEUROn to develop a joint European UCAV prototype. As of January 2018, the uncertainty appears to be fogging up the outcome as both the governments have revealed they are still examining the work of the industry teams.

As of now, there are multiple European fighter projects (both, manned and unmanned) in the pipeline and the overall approach seems to be highly fragmented. Each participating country is going ahead with its own individual agendas and formulating distinctive or overlapping alliances to dominate the lucrative regional and global defense markets, by hedging their existing knowledge and capabilities.
