You had better change Wikipedia then, Bill.  It has the empty weight as over 
6,000lb, but with each engine pushing out less than 3,000lbf.

I'm sure that the A-37 was pretty pokey, but the Lightning was in a different 
class: thrust, weight, speed etc . . .

. . . and difficulty to fly, I should say :-)
