Convair Model 200 Supersonic VTOL Sea Control Ship Fighter Concept 
This design from the late 60s/ early 70s looks a lot like the latest european fighters that use delta/canard configurations. It used the idea of lift engines behind the cockpit with a swiveling tailpipe, but no prototype was built as the contract went to the weird window-blind wing XFV-12 which somehow managed to take an engine with more thrust than flying weight, and never generate enough lift to get off the ground. Convair at the time made a number of delta-wing fighters and bombers. It would be like a lightweight F-35.
