This appears to be a straightforward modification of the Boeing LWF design - probably reusing an LWF wind tunnel model. The vertical canards imply some kind of AFTI style direct side force control.

Nice colour view of Boeing LWF model before the canards were added.

There seem to be some remaining Mirage genes in the planform.

Interestingly Bob Sandusky (Northrop F-20, YF-23) started at Boeing and did aerodynamic configuration on the Boeing LWF.

In my files,

Boeing designed a close air-support airplane based on this design with some improvements
in configuration,but I don't remember the source,need confirm.

All I remember that; the forward ventral control fins under the inlet that would allow side
translations during the bomb runs ?.
