Monica! As ugly as it was, the vortex lift leading edge spoiler that popped up on top of the wing is really innovative and patented if my memory is correct. When this program was going on, I totally let that detail slip through unseen. I think their is room for a “Delta” wing in our various service branches especially it the folding wing is done right, they will take up a very small footprint on a Carrier. Imagine this as a low wing with side air-inlets or Yf-23-ish inlets, that might have worked.
