wonder what for it was intended...

Triangular Cross Section Aircraft Engine Nozzle
[1996] - Engineers at Lockheed Martin Tactical Aircraft Systems in Fort Worth, Texas used Gridgen to create this grid for the internal and external regions of a conceptual nozzle design. The purple surfaces are the geometry model on which the grid was built, the yellow surfaces are the grids on the interior nozzle walls, the orange surface is the grid at the nozzle exit plane, and the green lines are the grid lines at the exterior flowfield plane.

Didnt early thrust vectoring use 3 plates pushed into/out of the jet stream to vector the jet?
like on the x31?

Possibly an nozzle specifically designed for those plates?

Could be an experimental design for something like JASSM.
