Note PD-2852 had a drooping nose for better visibility from the rear seat during takeoff and landing without increased frontal area - it was dropped as too complex and heavy.

Did PD-2812 have folding fins, that you know of? sure as hell gonna need a freakish landing gear, otherwise.
All modern aircraft have four dimensions: span, length, height and politics.   TSR.2 got the first three right - Sir Sydney Camm

Yep, folding ventral, also dropped on complexity and weight grounds.

To better catch the arresting cable/chain at the departure end of the runway, of course.

Even the F-22 has it

Thanks guys. I wasn't aware of that kind of appendix on Air Force aircraft.
