Here to discuss what the title said.  Anyone got any information (some closed up pix on the nozzles would be greatly appreciated).  This is the only thing I found:

hesham posted this NASA report in the Boeing JAST/JSF/X-32 projects thread which shows concepts with yaw thrust vectoring nozzles that look a little like a Harrier/Pegasus nozzle mounted horizontally.

Looking at donnage99's post the nozzle doesn't look deep enough to be like the concepts in hesham's post. Definitely looks like something rotates in there though  ???

Just found this thread and went digging, this patent is worth a read, along with a few things I found on a chinese forum. https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/pdfs/US5294055.pdf

Also this is almost an exact match for the shape of the exhaust nozzle and time frame. https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=patentimages.storage.googleapis.com/pdfs/US5092524.pdf
