Here’s a replica of one of Northrop Grumman’s design concepts for the 6th generation stealth fighter contract for the US Navy.

Note: I also created a replica of the Y tail concept, and a tailless version of this craft that are supermaneuverable. This version is not supermaneuverable. Please download the Y tail or tailless version for BDArmory tournaments. This version is just for fun.

Stable without reaction wheels at speeds up to Mach 2.2. It loses yaw control beyond that. I could solve that if I made the wings wider and farther back but it wouldn’t look cool. This version is not supermaneuverable. (I don’t think it’s possible to make a pure flying wing supermaneuverable.)

Because it uses the same body as the Y tail, I won’t go over its internals.

This is the variant that Northrop Grumman is promoting towards the Navy, but I prefer the Y tail for the increased maneuverability.
