Possibly,but it was just a mock up demonstrator in a joint venture with the then McDonnell-Douglas corporation,we will definitely go it alone with some other stealth projects such as Taranis and whatever else we have up in the sky being tested out at the moment!! Whilst the Lockheed-Martin/BAE "Lightning 2" or F-35 as we all know it is a joint venture, you have to ask who learned and gained the most from who in this?
Both the US and the UK have got stealth projects,only the F-35,F-22 and Taranis are the ones we've been made aware of!
Footnote,,wasn't Taranis to replace some of the Tornado fleet and the rest made up of F-35 capabilities with Typhoon as the main fast jet?
Planes?,PLANES?!! WE'VE got plenty of planes!
