Hate to drag up an old thread but since no one has got it the first picture is a mock-up of a American Phalanx MP-18 Dragon. The Dragon was a multi role desgin in the 80's. It was suppost to have two turbofans with 3D thrust vectoring for VSTOL operations. It had different modules for different missions. It was quite innovative for the time though very optimistic about its performance. It actually was put up as a early contender for the LHX project which resulted in the Commanche.

The other pictures are obviously passenger versions of the same design.
