    I don't mean any disrespect and I wish the person all the best. But my experience says I find the whole thread absolutely incredible.

    Both mean the same.

    No disrespect because I do not enough about the person or project. My assessment is purely based on my real life experience. The specs mentioned are absolutely incredible for the cost, timeframe, project layout etc.

    My experience says things are not THIS easy.

    No no not at all. I want him to develop this undeclared but discussed on forums extensively by one person stealth aircraft with better specs than Rafael and better manouverability that F22 for just 300 million dollars.

    I mean we will revolutionise the world. My best wishes. I hope my anonymous post on an internet forum will not stall the project.

    Dude, being sensible, reasonable and setting fair goals is the FIRST step to any project, let alone a world beating fifth gen aircraft.

    300m$ is too little and even the time frame he is aiming is too little. But he is trying. Fortune favours the brave. If he is able to attain a few milestones and then get some media advertising, done on it as an indigenous project. He might get funding. There is a good chance in my opinion. Because it has never been done. It all depends on how much he has sharpened his talons if he can manage a prototype, even a skeletal one.

    Without any malice or sarcasm at all, all the very best in his efforts. It would give me unadulterated pleasure to be proven wrong.

    The cost of LCA Mk1 including its developmental budget is just $25m. If we use exactly the same architecture of avionics, radar, FCS etc and just make a new airframe, what do you think will be the cost involved to make three prototypes? Also pls remember that LSA will use two GTFE-40 engines which together will cost less than one F404.
