Key Points:

  1. Features internal weapons bays and stealth coatings.
  2. Blended wing-body configuration reduces radar visibility.
  3. AI capabilities development raises its sensor data processing and networking abilities.
  4. Aim to replicate the US Air Force's "loyal wingman" concept with manned-unmanned teaming.
  5. Integrated AI data analysis and hardened networks raise operational functionality concerns.
