Any idea about its dimensions? i guess one way to get the length, would be to use perspective correction and the wheel diameter...

The world only produces a nanogram of antimatter every year but we cannot store any of it for any length of time.

Positron Dynamics has solutions to all of the huge problems to use the immense power of antimatter.

Positrons are 2000 times easier to produce than antiprotons.

Positrons are produced constantly from various isotopes.

In the post-war years, the U.S. Coast Guard wished to explore new concepts for sea rescue. Two studies emerged:
  • A glider-borne lifeboat which may be launched from water or land, and towed by powered aircraft to survivors of overseas airline crashed and marine casualties;
  • A twin-rotor glider-helicopter lifeboat that could be launched almost vertically from land or water, being towed behind the search plane, released at the scene of disaster, landed vertically, rotors jettisoned or folded back and maneuvered as a conventional motorboat while picking up survivors.

According to the article, the experimental work on these projects (the first of which was done jointly with the Stevens Institute of Technology) had to be suspended "due to overall reduction in appropriations."

Thank you for your support but those articles are not new to me.

I realized after doing that extensive search that you were yourself from Sweden, so I didn't really have too many hopes... but anyway, as I said, even if you knew these, they belong in this topic for all those who don't.  ;)
Ait.  ;)

Thank you for your support but those articles are not new to me. Also they only show the armament they got as staff planes which was 2 front mounted 8 mm mgs and one 8 mm for the gunner. Also the polish blueprint u found shows a modification that was done to the surviving b 6 and all swedish j 9s (swedish p-35's) in 1944. It was a lengthened air intake.
