    The lift fan was considered to be superior to the direct lift system used by Boeing, for various reasons. In the conventional versions, the space that the fan occupies in the "B" variant can be used for fuel, future weapons, EW, etc. It was considered more versatile.
    It also did not help that the boeing X32 prototype would have required massive restructuring and probably would have looked or been nothing like the production version.

      That would have been a blessing.

        Hmmmm A10 is a Beauty queen by comparison. It looked like it was going too "Eat any one in its way, i think thats why so many people liked it, It was begging too have Shark Teeth. but from the Projections it would still have been ugly.

          Lol, even though my loyalties lie with Boeing, I really hated the X-32. It was one of the absolutely ugliest AC ever designed...barf!


          Yea, even we called it "The Monica" or "The Lewinski" because all it did was suck and blow!! LOL
