Thank you for clarify us my dear Schneiderman.

The third image looks a lot like the "Heinkel T".

That's right my dear Hamza,

but what about the others ?.

Designation Systems / Re: Blackburn designations

OK, so this thread has been dead for many years so I guess there is not a lot of interest in Blackburn, but a word of caution - the project list in Jackson's Putnam volume is far from complete and has errors.
I visited the Blackburn archive last week with a request to see any flying boat projects between the Nile and B20. The volunteers there did a quick search of the catalogue, not a deep search, and had a few files available for me to view. I only had two hours but in that time the files and drawings I saw were almost entirely previously unknown designs missing from Jackson's list. So, should you be researching Blackburn it looks like there is a great deal just waiting to be uncovered in the archive, a nice project for anyone who is able to make a few visits. The archive is held by BAe Systems at the former Blackburn factory at Brough, near Hull

Interesting info, thanks :)

Propulsion / Argus As 403 "on steroids"?
« Last post by Wurger on Yesterday at 11:50:32 am »
Argus Motoren Gesellschaft of Berlin-Reinickendorf was developing by the end of WW2 some high-powered aircraft engines, e.g. the As 403, As 404 and As 413.

The Argus As 403 was a H24 engine, i.e. it had 24 cylinders arranged in a "H" fashion, with four banks of air-cooled cylinders. Please see the photo, taken from "Der Flieger", Heft 4/1966 (mislabelled as As-413(sic) and also published at "Flugmotoren und Strahltriebwerke...", 5th edition, page 149). Its HP is stated to be between 3500 to 4000 (Der Flieger) and 2500 in "Flugmotoren". Bruno Lange (Tipenhandbuch der Deutschen Luftfahrttechnik) only states it was a bigger version of the As 412.

The second image (also from "Der Flieger") shows a quite similar air-cooled Argus engine, labelled as As-403(sic), comparing favorably its dimensions to the radial BMW 802 ( Lenght: 2,25m; width 92,5cm, eight 1,14m) which, according to "Flugmotoren, was 3,095 in lenght and 1,5m in width.

Now, it shows eight cylinders in each bank, making it a H-32 projected aircraft engine I never heard before, most certainly a spin-off of the As 403.

Very strange concepts from Germany,and the problem is mentioned a real designers names ?;

1,2 & 3 - the caption mentioned the designer Felix Kracht,a well known,and in picture one
and two,it looks like Arado E.381,and he called it K.T.1 ?.

4 & 5 - they mentioned Mr. Von Döll,a head of the aerodynamic of the Junkers company ?,
he created an Interceptor and a Bomber.

Please can experts answer us and check from those Projects ?,I put them here reserved
for any conclusion.

User Artwork / Re: The Stillborn wings

Very nice work, sir.  Though the production HA-300, with E300 engine, would have had the variable inlets of the third prototype.

Hi SpudmanWP,sorry for the late reply,but i don't agree with you,i was digging up some images on my computer,and find out that there were a few projects with 90 degree angles,on there design and were made by some big aerospace companies,just some examples;

A-12



ICE concept



new Boeing MQ-25




UCLASS concept




...and there are probably alot more,so my design is not as impossible as you think it is,and that is what it is...
That Lockheed - Martin concept looks a lot like a descendant of Tacit Blue or a flipped-over version of TSSAM with a more prominent intake and a Tacit Blue tail.

Alternative History and Future Speculation / Re: AFVG prospects with roles reversed
« Last post by Lascaris on February 20, 2019, 10:29:49 am »
The main issue is that Dassault is going full bore with the G and its massive TF-306 turbofan, plus everybody hates the M-45 that lacks power...
,


The very idea is that TTL AFVG is derived from G in the first place for every practical purpose. If Dassault are leading development they are not exactly going to try to reinvent the will. As for M45 if Bristol is leading development I'd expect they are basing development on their experiences as well. So some turbofan derived of Pegasus with significantly more thrust?
