I vaguely remember that from back in the 80's. But I didn't think it even got to the mock up stage, just concept art like the forward swept wing
variant they talked about. Good find.
I think it’s an auxiliary air intake for the vectored thrust system they were trying out on this aircraft...there is a lot more info on the secret
projects forum on the aircraft along with more pictures etc etc.a reply to: GD
