"Examples include the D-558-1 and D-558-2, HL-20, M2-F1, M2-F2, and M2-F3, to name a few."

Peter, note that those aircraft were built to NACA/NASA contracts and were not required to follow DOD nomenclature requirements.

Urban myth says that when SecDef was briefed on the winner (X-35) he was supposed to announce it as the next F-24 that was next in line but mistakenly called it the F-35. I know that supposedly happened before when Pres Johnson mistakenly referred to the RS-71 as the SR-71 and folks scrambled to "fix" it.
