I think that the actual intent is to borrow the glamour of the latest military hardware.
Reading minds is a loser-think game. I suspect the design was derived from first principles along the lines of an arthropod shell. The skin is 3mm thick. The inner structure is conventionally thin. This puts mass where it is most efficient.

The unpainted shell with 'metal glass' windows will be essentially immortal.
