They basically took a giant clay mould and chopped a bunch of edges and off-angle lines into it, then put it into production. I look at the ATS, as well as the CTS and STS and wonder if the purpose is to defeat surface to air missiles.

Excellent observation.

I believe that, with a radar absorbing clear-coat, this Scourge of Munich will present a radar profile too small to detect.
