The purpose oi this study was to demonstrate the feasibility of incorporating the G. E. ADEN 2-D vectoring nozzle design on the YF-1'? fighter in order to provide a manned flight demonstrator of 2-D nozzle technology.
The YF-17 YJ101. engines and aft structure would be modified to integrate ADEN
nozzles with a thrust vectoring flap deflection range of 10° up to 20° down. Also canards would be added below the canopy.
