  • Q1 FY21 Update: What’s Been Going On, and What’s to Come?

    As I am sure most of you know by now, it’s been really quiet around The Havoc for the past few months.  I have been holding back a lot of content that needs to get posted and been trying to build up the On Air component of the site for the last few months.  That hasn’t been an easy task, and I’m currently weighing the pros and cons of continuing that route.  In the midst of all that, I’ve been trying to shove off a slave-site that I had built for a client in August onto their own domain.  That should be done by the end of the month.  All the while realizing that I have two sites to work on for the same client.  While I’d love to say that money doesn’t talk, it does – and I’ve been very clear that digital finances will always result in student

Artistic mockup of a tailless F-22. The X-44 MANTA was only a mockup on paper and never saw any kind of production. The program lasted from 1992 thru 2000 when funding was cancelled. Around the same time, McDonnell Douglas had also introduced a proof of concept for it's X-36. The X-44 would have included increased fuel and weapons payloads, as well as better maneuverability and reduced radar cross-section.
