Thanks! It seems to indicate only the prototype at the time of writing and suspected if their were no development problems, it would have a long production life. It is interesting that it was actually based on the Yak-12 and not the An-2. Another thing I disagree with the book is classing the An-2 with the DHC-2. IMO, there is too much difference in the two. Even the DHC-3 doesn’t compare to the An-2, again, IMO. Thanks for the info.

I have wondered about the engine for a while.
Whilst i am sure there is some parts commonality with civilian models..running a fleet of less than 150 airframes on a unique afterburning engine can't be easy.

Still, to re-engine with a 404 would probably entail new build airframes..so might as well start afresh instead of a 30 year design.

That is pretty much the case.  In some of the research I did at the National Archives, I saw reports stating that Concorde economics weren't good, even by 1960's standards.  I remember seeing information TWA turned over to McNamara about this.  Sadly, I didn't copy these things, but any of the American designs would have been either more profitable than Concorde, or at least less of a loss.

While I don't recall seeing economic analyses like the one I posted of the NAC-60, I suspect they're out there, somewhere, to be discovered.

While Ms Poblete did not specify which Russian satellite she was talking about, military analysts believe it was one of a set launched on June 23. A month later, the Russian Ministry of Defence announced it had launched “a small-sized spacecraft has separated from a space platform in order to inspect condition of the Russian satellite.”

Kosmos 2521 was believed deployed from another satellite, Kosmos 2519. Close by is another satellite, Kosmos 2523.
