Not doubting any of that. Other articles I've read do point out the Phoenix as the end of the Falcon development, not that a project only had to have a single predecessor but I do find it interesting that the airframe of the Phoenix looks more like the Falcon's than the Eagle's which maybe more to do with it being a Hughes project.

The radar and missiles were (and still are) impressive, after the F-12 programme ended the radar and missile ended forming the basis of the F-14 (via the F-111B) AWG-9 radar and AIM-54 Phoenix missile, so all that developed effort did not go to waste.
