All 3 have manned demonstrators. Down to 2 now and will be a fly off.

All 4 have unmanned fighter UCAV

All 4 have long endurance high altitude flying wings for their sensorcraft-type assets.

The mix is going to get really interesting, and I am especially looking forwards to the Lockheed's twin-engine RQ-170'esque having a fly off against General Atomics offering.

Exciting times indeed.

Oh, and what folks need to keep in mind is that Boeing were doing tailless fighters since 2008. They just kept their stuff out the way. Supersonic tailless is a breeze, and thanks to RESTORE and all the continuations of that? Loss of control is the last thing a pilot will ever have to worry about.
