Easily one of the most interesting looking X planes, the X-32 was a technology concept demonstrator built by Boeing which competed for what was at the time called the largest military contract in history, the Joint Strike Fighter or JSF. The X-32 was a single engine delta wing stealth multirole fighter that would have been produced in three variants: an Air Force version, a carrier based Naval version, and a Short Takeoff and Vertical Landing or STOVL version. This episode takes a look at how the X-32 was developed, the design decisions that were made along the way, and its competition against the X-35.
