This, of course, is the "bad guy" plane from Dale Brown's Day Of The Cheetah novel. The XF-34 Dreamstar...

Forward swept wing, variable-anhedral foreplanes (can change from horizontal orientation like on X-29 to very sharp downward angle like F-16AFTI), chin-mounted intake, either one or two engines (the book is inconsistent on this) with thrust vectoring, twin dorsal tails and retractable(!) twin ventral tails, and sized about like an F-15. I don't know enough about CGI or image editing, but I'd love to see someone's take on this design.

Perhaps this topic would be more appropriate for the What-if Modelers forum (http://www.whatifmodelers.com/forum)
