Here an article about the Rockwell XFV-12A published in the German magazine Flug-Revue.
Some of the pictures might have been posted already in this topic or in other topics.

A conventional takeoff derivative of XFV-12 was created for VFAX requirement.

But after the debacle that was the XFV-12, would the US Navy really have considered a conventional take-off derivative of XFV-12 for its VFAX requirement?
The whole sad thing is, if the US Navy had of selected either the Vought V-536 or the Convair Model 200, then a conventional take-off and landing derivative of either of these designs would have probably have made VFAX both feasible, and do I dare say it - cost effective!  ;)
A Sad sad lost opportunity and capability for the USN and USMC  :-[

Reading the Code One article on the three bearing swiveling nozzle, the author asserts that the XFV-12 was possibly chosen BECAUSE it was the least likely to succeed and would have resulted in the demise of the unpopular Sea Control Ship and V/STOL aircraft  :o
All modern aircraft have four dimensions: span, length, height and politics.   TSR.2 got the first three right - Sir Sydney Camm

I found this at my library.  If anyone wants more information or a better scan, I can do that.  There was also quite a bit on lift augmentation in general and as it pertains to this aircraft.
