    article incorrectly states variant positions.
    From left to right: A, C, B, A

      I thought so – the A & B both have the same wingspan, right? But the C has a larger wing to aid low speed handling when coming in to land on deck, right?

      I know right? Every country has three distinctly different 5th generation production fighters flying side by side for photo ops.

    Wrong, it’s, from right to left:
    A, B, C, A.

    The B has a larger fuselage just behind the canopy, with its vertical lift fan inside.

    I know the thing’s still ugly, but come on, you’re aviationists !
