One of the designs in the 9th photo matches the design layout of the A-12 Avenger II, while some fighter designs in some pictures have the same design as the Northrop/McDonnell Douglas YF-23. I'm wondering if the YF-23 was considered for the NATF contest because it's known that Lockheed offered a naval version of the F-22 with a swing-wing as an F-14 successor.
