The first public outing for NP-2, the second Naval LCA prototype, which made its first flight on 7 Feb 2015. This airframe is a single seater, unlike NP-1, which was a twin-seat bird. Neither of the first two prototypes have a tailhook yet, and you can see a dummy tailhook under the port wing — this will probably be attached when the aircraft is displayed on the ground.

Look at that main landing gear design, no wonder the thing is overweight.. compare it to the design of a twin engine Full size F-15.

Well in its defence an aircraft designed to land on a carrier (i.e. not an F-15) is going to have a pretty hefty undercarriage by necessity. Great photo!
