Not going with the original concept arguably cost Boeing quite a few customers in the long term, especially given how the market evolved.

EDIT: From the article;

Another concept for cruise missile "bomb truck", intended for carrying and launching ALCM missiles by means of standard rotating launchers.

747 8F freighter concept (some antenna seem to have their location change)


I wonder when in the process Boeing decided to change the size and position of the horizontal stabilizer on the 747-8. I've never seen anything about a design change, but the ACAPS documentation shows a different span and a different overhang beyond the fuselage.

747 Advanced Tanker/Oversized Cargo Aircraft "ATOCA"

A growth version of the -200F competing in the ATCA program against the KC-10; the flight deck would have been raised 48 inches and be provided with a new large cargo door and improved tanker boom. It seems like it was proposed to supplement the C-5 or potentially replace it if the repair program failed, truly a shame it was not adopted.
