QuoteYou did leave out one proposal, Northrop's single-engined entry in tandem with their twin-engined one that became the YF-17.

QuoteIn an old Air-International magazine has been published an article about the forefather of the YF-17 and F-18, rather different : with a single fin. Is it well known for all of you, or are you interested ? it is somewhere in my archives.
QuoteI have not found the P530 Cobra article in my nearest archives, but a picture was in the French magazine Aero No.17 (1985), with a few details. Before the Northrop YF-17 (manufacturer project P-600, prefered to the single-jet P-610) of 1972 was the 1968 P-530 Cobra, built as a model in 1969. A full scale model of this P-530 was presented in Paris in 1973, as "opponent to the Lockheed CL-1200 Lancer". The very beginning, with a high wing is dated 1966.
