But the author clearly loves this theme, cannot find other themes, than axis atomic weapons or at least
"Vergeltungswaffen". But why not ? "Sex sells" ... um ... "German nuclear weapons sell" ...  ::)

To summarise the book and save everyone their money the answer is "fiction".

Now available! This book presents the original proposal for the Lockheed Model L-200 Convoy Fighter of 1950, which led to the XFV-1 Salmon turboprop tailsitter naval aircraft. It was one of five submissions to the US Navyís Convoy Fighter competition, which called for a high performance turboprop VTOL fighter to protect convoy vessels from attack by enemy aircraft. The original L-200 design differed from the eventual XFV-1 in having a tail with only three surfaces, an eight-bladed propeller, and various turboprop engine installation options. Variants covered include an early L-200 study with inverted tail; the L-200-1 tactical fighter; L-200-2 stripped prototype; L-200-3 with afterburner; L-200-6 swept wing variant; and L-200-7 canard configuration.



This full color 76 page book features 70 images, including rare photos, detailed blueprints, vintage artistís impressions, and beautiful color profiles. Part 2 will cover additional proposal documents, wind tunnel testing at NACA, and other unbuilt turboprop tailsitter projects. This is the fifth in a series of monographs covering the Navyís Convoy Fighter competition of 1950; previous volumes on the Convair, Goodyear, Martin, and Northrop designs are still available from booksellers worldwide. Lockheed Model L-200 Convoy Fighter - Pt 1 can be purchased on Amazon.com and its international branches for $18.99, along with other major booksellers worldwide. A Kindle edition is available on Amazon and its subsidiaries for just $9.99; an ePub version is available directly from my Gumroad store for just $8.99, a savings of $1 off the regular price! Some sample spreads are shown below:









I hope you enjoy it; Part 2 should be released within a couple months.
