Sixth Generation
 
5 Attachment(s)
Boeing recently showed their F/A-XX concept (edit - now NGAD, Next Generation Air Dominance) which is a proposed sixth-generation Super Hornet replacement. It's a tailless design with highly shielded exhausts and very simplified surfaces for reduced signatures. No doubt something very similar to this has flown already at the infamous "operating location near Groom Lake".

Sixth generation aircraft will build on fifth generation technologies seen in the F-22 and F-35 to include things like:

- Directed energy weapons like lasers and high-powered microwaves
- Stealthy data networking
- Cooperative jamming/electronic attack
- Strike/reconnaissance integration
- Hypersonic kinetic munitions
- Embedded distributed sensors
- Tailless, highly stealthy airframes
- Optionally manned, remote crewed operation
