Sounds like some of this is based on garbled information. There
was a (until recently) secret West German stealth aircraft
project called "Lampyridae" (firefly) in the 1980s. However it
was a small single person fighter with a pure air-to-air mission.
Interestingly they independently came up with the same faceted
surface technology as the F-117. Although full scale mockups were
built it never flew and was declassified in 1995.
