P.112 would have been c. Mach 1.6, similar turn capability etc. to Eurofighter, according to Bill Sweetman in Interavia.

Did those aft nozzles at the root of the wing trailing edge provide any propulsive power in cruise flight or were they only used in VTOL flight?

IIRC, by the time layouts like this were being seen, thinking had moved away from trying to vector the full augmented blast of the engine - because of re-ingestion and erosion - and RR was working on neat folding exhausts that fitted between the turbine exit and the afterburner.

Anyone have details on the lift systems for these projects? Were they tandem fan concepts?

Time goes by, really ! Seeing these drawings from flight reminded me, that
about 15 years ago, I've used them (and a handful others, I think)
to make these drawings. In the meantime, it even is difficult to open those
old files ! Not to nowadays standard at all, nevertheless .... ::)

The P.1230 is a good looking design, the familar Harrier layout refined for close air support. Bit of Su-25 in there :)

...Anyone know if there's a kit of the .116? Preferably *not* in resin.

Now was this proposed in the same ASTOVL program American companies were involved in?

Looks like the results of combining a Gripen with a Harrier.
