Nice one Cocas. I'd like to add an abridged overview of the BAC P.45 variable-geometry (VG) project. It reads like a backstory but it is the truth...

 

The P.45 has a link with Barnes Wallis of 'Dambusters' fame who, whilst at Vickers Armstrong at Weybridge, tinkered around with VG from about 1944. Fast forward to the late 1950's and GOR.339 (the operational requirement that led to the magnificent TSR.2) the UK Government bullied the remaining British aircraft companies into partnerships to reduce the number of companies on the premise that future projects would be so rare and complex that only partnerships could cope. In 1960 Bristol, English Electric, Hunting Aviation and Vickers Armstrong were banged together to form BAC (the British Aircraft Corporation) and looked at VG as a means of meeting GOR.339 before moving on to the TSR.2's equally advanced very small but highly-blown wing.

 

After the TSR.2 had moved out of the project stage the project staff at BAC revisited the VG concept and sketched the P.45 as a private-venture study into a military VG aircraft powered by two RB.172 afterburning turbofans (or one RB.168 afterburning 'Spey' turbofan) and designed as a supersonic light attack aircraft and trainer with follow-on air superiority and strike versions with more advanced avionics. BAC submitted the P.45 to the Ministry of Aviation in May 1964 but this was not the best time to be proposing a modern supersonic aircraft in the UK as the soon to be elected Labour government took out the three main British aircraft projects (the AW.681 VTOL transport, the P.1154 V/STOL fighter and the TSR.2 strike aircraft) and jumped into bed with the French which saw the Sepecat Jaguar project look after the light attack and trainer requirements and the larger AFVG project look after the air superiority and strike requirements. Echoes of the P.45 survived into the cancelled AFVG and the MRCA (Tornado).
