Maybe it’s bigger because it has more than one sensor behind the glass? Being a dedicated Recce bird

Actually the F-35 has several sensors built into the EOTS. Beauty of it is how it’s all tied together into one system. Combined with the helmet system and cameras mounted outside the pilot can see in a total sphere around the aircraft, even look straight down through the floor of the cockpit. And not just in visual spectrum but IR too.

I’m going with it’s an F-35 concept but earlier version with bulkier gear plus maybe some other spooky stuff requiring a bigger window. Works for whiff world!
