F-35 XL (Twin Engine F-35)

This kind of reminds me of the YF-23 and the J-20.

I wanted to make a Navy safe version/ heavier fighter bomber

aircraft. This could come in a stretched two seater as well I suppose.

The wing is a delta configuration.

No forward canards…US doesn’t believe in them.

FYI I made the name F-35 XL as a reference to the F-16XL

prototypes: an extended fuselage/wing for an extended

range fighter-bomber model (it lost the competition to the F-15E

Strike Eagle so it was cancelled) and the prototypes were given to

NASA- check them out:

  1. Very nice work. Unfortunately, the current F-35 has a high wing loading and turn radius the size of Texas. If you’re going to put two engines on the beast you should also put bigger wings on it and reduce the rudders or lose them altogether to improve all aspect stealth. Two-dimensional thrust vectoring and “puffer ports” out the sides of the back would do wonders for maneuverability. Two seats? Why not?
