I found this on deviant art, a prototype never seriously built or modeled. I think it looks pretty cool, url is < http://kryptid.deviantart.com/art/Light ... -169271377 >

Specs:
The Lightweight Supercruise Fighter (LSF) is a copyright of Dr. Daniel P. Raymer.

Length: 45 feet, 2 inches
Take-off Gross Weight: 16,480 pounds
Military Thrust: 13,776 pounds*
Full Afterburner Thrust: 16,150 pounds
Maximum Speed: over Mach 1.8
Supercruise Speed: over Mach 1.4
Nozzle Type: 2D Pitch-vectoring
Tail Type: Variable-dihedral V-tail #(may be simulated by variable geopetry wing, not sure what effectit has though.)

from the picture we know it at least can hold 2 missiles. I dont think the hardpoints have to be accurate to a prototype fighter that doesnt list them.
It would be nice to have something like this, would probably have good range becasue of supercruise abilities.

Sexy looking. Looks about like a Stealth F-16. Could call it F-16S.

I don't think a birdfarm mesh wouldn't too big of a job could anyone do that?

By definition a request is a request. If you second the request just second the request, don't shit on whatever modder is going to do it by saying it's easy :lol:

its is possible; the F-16 and F/A-18 get together, have some sex and stuff, before the air force F-16 realises the F/A-18 is from the navy and breaks up with it.

Then somehow, the F-16 is pregnant and then has some weird baby.
That...won't happen. Planes are non living, and definitely don't have free will *goes onto science lesson about cells and reproduction*

There is a thing called "humor", not sure if you ever heard of that.

I'm sure he has heard about it, but, he has not yet mastered even the rough points. Given some more time he may catch-on.

Not sure if post never went through or a mod deleted it...

Pretty sure it wasn't objectionable, so I'll just say it never went through. Won't repost just in case. ;)
