It was all designed and tested and everything. Too late now. 187 is not enough.

Oh well, there's always diplomacy.

The X-32 was just too hot! I mean the ground heating and exhaust gas recirculation problems. Also, Boeing wasn't able build a light wing. And there was the need to add elevators...

It is a shame people judge funny-looking designs on looks first and ignore technical merit. I heard a similar argument used against the Northrop YF-23. "Yeah, but the F-22 looks like it's ready to turn and burn!"

Lest we forget, the F-22 is no poster child for efficient defense procurement.

n*kBolt*Te = B**2/(2*mu0) and B^.25 loss scaling? Or not so much? Hopefully we'll know soon...
