Do you remember F-16/79? With this in mind, what about Phantom III equipped with 3 J79?

Wasn’t there a three engine version of the Vigilante? Or was that fictional? Or maybe just a proposal? Off to google I go....

The NR-349 manned improved interceptor for the USAF. At least that’s the official story.

If you could do it with a Vigilante? At least the Vigilante had a “tunnel” between the engines. Intake would have been another matter.

Number 1 looks better but it would suffer FOD with it's intake there, behind the nosewheel.  If you carrier it's intake forward to where the gun is, it would be OK.  The other two don't grab me all that much.  You'd need for all of them to seriously increase the fuel tankage.

Much larger intakes. The Vigilante one similarly divided inlets as far as l know, dividing the inlet two thirds of it feeding a full engine and the one thirds remaining is combined with the one on the other side. Though it might be  "poor" as a side profile.
