Only a partial 'what if' based on the swing-wing research carried out by Vickers during the mid-1950's being passed to NASA's Langley Laboratory earlier than reality (i.e. before 1959) and then a corresponding earlier drafting of SOR-183 and the resultant TFX competition predating McNamara and the distraction of 'commonality' and the Naval F-111B. I'm not sure an earlier TF30 would have done it much good though!

I can see her using an "Americanized" afterburner version of the famous RR Conway, as Allison did with his TF41 from the Spey.
