Found these in a TsAGI bulletin, possible reference to source. Anyone know more?

Possible source: Interavia Aerospace Review, 1986, v41, VII, N7, p791-792

Yups. I didnt see that overscan mention F-16XL. This is (yet) unknown to me. But in 80s allmost every drawing of a new plane had a 2D thrust vectoring same like these.
