Too bad, this jet will never be produced to compete with Su-30 MK.

Hello Adnan,

Yes that was experimental F15 from Edwards Airforce base, it was part of F-22/23 and JSF projects. That F15 just doesn't have canards on its air intake but also have Vectored exhaust nozzles also!, if you do a search on it, you will see slightly rectangular exhaust nozzles which pivots up and down for assistance in short take off and fast vertical climbs, loops and quick turning scenarios, plus other fact is those canards are made for H Stabs of F/A-18's H stabs!!, now when i say F/A-18 it means earlier versions as A,B,C and D, and not Super Hornets.

Interesting, So you know you know your planes. :wink:

So this plane was just to do research for F-22, JSF and F/A 18.
