Interesting design...a bit overgunned, though...there's nowhere for internal sensor systems in the nose with all that volume occupied by the guns, not to mention the damage caused by the vibration. Another issue is going to be ingestion of missile exhaust and possible missiles themselves if they fail to fire.

Tinkered with it a bit more...

Image

The Heavy cannons have limited ammo and are intended for anti capital ship use, there are 4 to maximize rounds on target rather than force the pilot to make multiple passes. The Gatling guns have been moved to the ventral bow of the craft. A screen has been placed over the large ventral intakes. I envision the cannons firing as a linked unit, two at a time one on each side.

I think I am going to settle on this one...

What do you think Kurt?

Looks much better. Ingestion of cannon gasses was an issue on some of the early jets with fuselage mounted intakes and could cause malfunctions and worse from the corrosive gases and potentially unburnt powder. This really minimizes the danger from the canard mounted guns.
