A slightly different bit of artwork for the TF-120 similar to what Paul posted way back in the beginning.

Enjoy the Day! Mark

Wow, a FSW version? That is pretty forward thinking, but overly ambitious. The wing probably would've been very thin (like the X-29's), which would make the addition of decently sized integral fuel tanks and ordinance capacity an issue. Yes, such a mission profile is beyond what was intended, but on a practical level, a proper fighter, VSTOL or not should have decent air-to-air capacity: 2x AIM-9s, 4x AIM-4s (or AMRAAMs for modern times). The other thing I wonder about is the aircraft CG. I don't think the plane could've gotten away with the lift fan so far back.

Greetings All -

Another bundle of good stuff from the Vought Archives. Had not seen the TF130 and TF140 designs before.

Enjoy the Day! Mark

This fighter concept from 1984 reminds me of Vought (LTV) V/STOL Tandem Fan Fighters. B)
