Northrop YF-23 Concept / 20k Special

20.9k BritishNarwhal7  2.7 years ago

Thank you everyone for helping me reach 20k! I've been here for a good while and really appreciate everyones support.


This concept fighter is based off of the Northrop YF-23, a design competitor of the Lockheed Martin F-22. This model incorporates basic design elements of the YF-23, while for the most part being completely unique.


Featuring two missile bays and a retractable cannon (VTOL slider), coupled with special cold burning engines, this model was designed to fly undetected in a close air support role.


I'm really happy with how this turned out, and I hope you enjoy it.
I'm excited to show y'all my next big post, keep tuned.
