I heard about this. This was the original platform for the AIM-54. It was cancelled because they couldn't get the weight down enough. The Tomcat was developed instead.

No tail?
>>
>>27793272
No tail.

Would require TVC for rudder-control. But this would grant it exceptional stealth.

>>27792961
The same reason the P-82 existed.

>>27793806

Because you wouldn't have a tail! That's where the majority of a plane's maneuvering comes from. Would pure thrust vectoring be enough to make up for losing that? Maybe so, but probably not.
>>
>>27791798
Stupid moment on me but what's the point of variable swept wing aircraft? Having the wing swept back helps for better aerodynamics but I don't see the point of having them all the way out.

You get better lift with the wings spread out. Swing-wing designs allow you to have a design that can go really fast and still be able to take off on short runways. Plus, you can extend the wings to give yourself better turning during a dogfight if you don't mind sacrificing some speed.
>>
>>27794405
Better handling at low speeds with the wings out.

Just a reminder that the USN should have had a stealth attack aircraft in service in the late 1990's. As it stands the USN still can't into stealth. Fuck Dick Cheney.
>>
>>
>>
>>27794280
The majority of a plane's maneuvering? no. The only thing that the tail offers is yaw, which in a fighter (high t/w engines located off axis) would most likely make it acceptable.

Point is that the UK had no need for the lift system. Don;t operate LHDs like the USMC does.

At the time they were still operating the Invincible Class, and (IIRC) they hadn't begun work on the new carriers when they started the P.126 design.

BAe Kingston was actually working on a ton of different STOVL design studies that ended up getting killed by the F-35.
