Those bulges at the nose, visible in the top view only, are somehow associated
with the H2S radar ?

Strange perhaps,but I have the impression that the canopy
framework is added later on Toura's drawing..

If one enlarge the drawing you can
clearly see that that cockpit glazing is reworked..

Besides , I think that the whole drawing is put together from
several part drawings..

If Toura ever could find back his source maybe we will learn more..

My dear Iark

Yes ! YOUR RIGHT !!

If I look I could see the drawing had 3 parts !
and the drawing of cockpit seems to be a complement
on the original ??????????????

Me who thing that I have a better document!!!

A similar 3-View layout appears in BSP -Jet Bombers since 1949, page 33 along with a fairly lengthy paragraph about it.
Your 3-View appears to be an adaption of what is shown in the book. The caption says it's part of the M J F Bowyer Collection

in te caption with your drawing who made me think about...
