The well-known French company Dassault used this year’s Euronaval 2018 exhibition to display a model of the New Generation Fighter (NGF) that will eventually replace the current generation of Dassault’s Rafales and Germany’s Eurofighter Typhoons aircraft by around 2035-2040.

The Dassault ‘s next-generation aircraft has no tail fin and a swept W-shaped wing design and incorporates highly advanced stealth technologies and integration with information systems. The new aircraft will have tricycle-type landing gear for runway take-off and landing.

The air vehicle is expected will be adapt to contemporary air threats and exploiting the potential of artificial intelligence.















It is likely that the new fighter jet project is developing as part of Europe’s Future Air Combat System (FCAS) and will eventually replace the current generation of Eurofighter and Rafale fighter aircraft by around 2035-2040.

According to a news release put out in April 2018, Germany and France have agreed on the central requirements for a new fighter jet to replace Eurofighter Typhoon and Rafale warplanes beginning in 2040.

The CEO of Dassault Aviation, Eric Trappier early said the Airbus and Dassault decided to team up to ensure that Europe retains control over its future weapons systems.

Airbus and Dassault said it was important for France and Germany to launch an initial joint study this year so they could get demonstrators of the technology done for 2025.

Trappier said the fighter jet would not be a copy of the U.S. F-35 fighter, but would be more ambitious.

it would be a surprising for Dassault to take on a 5th gen really, considering Airbus has proclaimed they are wanting to develop a 5th generation, unless Dassault wants an opponent to counter Airbus's product like the Rafale vs Eurofighter.

some say Dassault is forming this Next Gen. Fighter as a way to already counter the BAE Tempest which is considered a 6th gen, suppose to be out in the 2030s. if so Dassault semi sort of seems desperate as an aviation company, not with financing but more along the lines of exporting aircraft. for example, the French were expecting the Algerians, Moroccans, India etc. to purchase mass orders of the Rafale but did really go forth anywhere.

Speaking about pictures, they are really amazing and fabulous. But mock-up is a mock-up - it's a concept and in the majority of cases there's nothing to do with reallity. So anyway, unfortunately, that there's no information about the the approximate performances and funtionality. Although the project is not even launched yet in reallity... Time will show us. Anyway, the interest and involvement of European countries is clear and evident. The time in commission of the current fleet is reaching the curb and there's a problem of interchange, but currently there's no alternative variants. Moreover for one EU country the project is more than simply costly, it's overhelming costly for one country, that's why the decision to realize it jointly was made.
