I don't get why they used the old footage. That one there is an old prototype from the early 80's, the newer one is red with engines that pivot to allow for VTOL very similar to the USMC's new fighter jet in that sense. They're also nearing production of these, now that they are out of the design phase, they're finishing up on the testing phase by making the engines progressively more powerful as they test it. Should be a reality in another five years or so, they've already got over a hundred preorders for those things.
