I had not heard about this aircraft before I found these pictures. It looks like the Joint Strike Fighter has some competition. The plane in these pictures is air vehicle number 1, a prototype on board the USS Washington for catapult fit checks.
Not yet made public, the F/A-37 is a Mach 3.5, super cruise
stealth fighter/bomber/interceptor with a 4000nm range. The top speed is
classified, but is somewhere in the Mach 4 plus range. Also, there is no phase
interval for this plane. It has a 10,000 hour life airframe and engines that
require replacement only at failure or signs of trouble.
Note: There's a lady in the cockpit.
Alternatively, see here for more information:
U.S. Navy pilots BEN GANNON, KARA WADE, and HENRY PURCELL are at the cockpits
of fearsomely advanced "Talon" fighter jets, but...
An intelligent, next-generation drone fighter plane develops a mind of its own and an American pilot must go up against it.
Stealth promises to be a high octane, glued-to-your-seat, action-packed adventure. It recently ended primary filming in Australia. The movie now moves to post-production, and will be completed and in theatres by 2005.
