An A-12 chine panel, showing its honeycomb construction.

Picture 1 of 2.

The attached blue sign reads

Chine panel from A-12 showing radar corss section with "radar absorbing" honeycomb inside of panel.

Although not completely hidden from radar, the signature was greatly reduced. This was Ameria's first attempt to build a stealth aircraft.

The curves, honeycomb, materials, and radar absorbing material (RAM) worked together to mask the A-12.
