Aaah, great, Paris Air Show I guess... I'll be there next Thursday.
Thanks for the pics, that's a real scoop !! Looks like they finally opted for very angled stabilizers (not really a surprise...)

Uhm, what is this model? AFAIK the FCAS project has not even reached the design phase yet.
I guess this is just a symbolic model which has no resemblance to the final product?

A general overview for those who wonder what FCAS actually is:
FCAS (Future Air Combat System) is a project between France and Germany and also Spain which entered the project just today. It is important to understand, that FCAS is not an aircraft! Instead FCAS is a system of systems that is supposed to replace the Eurofighter (Germany, Spain) and the Rafale (France) as a 6th gen air combat system.

FCAS consists of three main systems, which are:
- Next Generation Weapon System (NGWS): This is the actual fighter aircraft that will either be manned or unmanned or both (not yet decided).
- Remote Carrier (RC): This is an autonomous drone that will accompany the fighter aircraft (probably as a swarm) to support the jet on its mission (e.g. carry additional weapons).
- Air Combat Cloud (ACC): This will be the network link to manage the interaction between the fighter jets and the drones.

FCAS will be developed by a joint venture of Dassault Aviation and Airbus Defence and Space and is currently planned to be introduced into service in 2040.


The defense ministers of Germany, France and Spain are signing the Framework Arrangement for the development of FCAS at the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget.

Once there was a prototype called YF-23.
The design doesn't look that much different IMO.

F-35 intakes and more slant towards horizontal in the tail. That's about it.
