The YF-23, with its unusual trapezoidal wings, was the primary competitor against the YF-22 during flight trials in 1990 and 1991. The YF-22 eventually one the competition, going on to become the F-22, and the YF-23's program has since been cancelled. The YF-23 did have some advantages over the F-22, particularly in speed and stealth characteristics, but the F-22's greater agility won out in the end. A variant of the YF-23 competed in a 2004 bomber requirement test, but the testing was cancelled and the YF-23 awaits a role. The detailed craftsmanship of this model makes it an ideal choice for anyone wanting a representation of the unique YF-23.
