In my opinion this was the better choice instead of the F-22. Despite the slight drop in agility. The F-23 was faster,stealthier and had a much longer range. And from a design perspective just groundbreaking and revolutionary. And to compensate for a slight drop in maneuverability the 23 could be fitted with the AIM-9X and JHMCS (if it would have entered production).
Couldn't agree more.
Isnt she just absolutely beautiful.
