Even though it is basically the original YF-17, still the manufacturers wanted it to look like the F-18 prototype, which--albeit of the same configuration--was considerably heavier and with numerous other differences. Even the serial presentation was changed to a six-digit one to make it resemble a real naval fighter, ...which it was not.
