Looking at this, I think that unfortunately there is no big wing:

As this is a very nice 'what-if', why not put a bigger wing on it, XF-17 or even a modified F-18 wing ----  ???

Does someone have images comparing the F-20 normal wing vs the big wing?

Not yet; we'll likely need to wait on Tony Chong's Northrop book for that.

Interesting, however the ROCAF Hawk IIIs were not the same as the USN BF2C-1.

In that first picture, are the F-CK-1A's going into the merge against JMSDF P-3's?

Interesting how the picture changed.  First PLAAF Tu-16s and then later JMSDF P-3s...   ;)

More likely the PRC telling the ROC to pull its head in.
